Story Behind the Book
Twelve years ago, I became romantically, though thankfully not sexually, involved with my then-pastor. This resulted in the church's devastation and a great deal of harm to both of our marriages. But God used the difficult lessons I learned during that arduous time to reshape my thinking about marriage and to plainly show me that the man I always wanted was the one I already had. By using my own story of failure and forgiveness as a backdrop, this book illustrates how our heart's desire is often found no further then the big lug lying next to us in bed each night Paula Friedrichsen.
