WifeBoat Launches New Groups Jan 19th & 21

I am very excited to announce a new series of  WifeBoat Online Support Groups starting this month on January 19th and 21st.  The groups are designed in response to many women who are struggling in marriages impacted by their husband’s sexual sin and who feel the need for ongoing support.

This series will include an extension group for those women who have completed the first 12 week group and it will run Thursday evenings 5:00-7:00pm PST.

 “Last year’s groups proved to be a real place of healing for women who, by and large, have had no place to go and talk about the things that have happened” says Renee Dallas, founder of the WifeBoat ministry.  ”I am so excited to be starting up again this January.”

For those who are new to the WifeBoat ministry, their 12-week group will run on Tuesday evenings from 4:00pm-6:00pm PST.  For more more information on registration see WifeBoat Support Groups

So let me tell you a little about the format and what we’ve got planned:

The first session will give us a chance to share our stories and talk about the goals of the group.  Each of the following meetings will start with a short teaching on an aspect of recovery that is relevant to you. I’ve also got a special guest facilitator planned for one of our sessions.

After the teaching, each person will have a chance to share their thoughts, struggles and victories in a mutually agreed upon safe and confidential environment. The extension group will be a goals-centered group and each participant will have the opportunity to state which goals they specifically want the group to help them with.

Each group meeting is 2 hours and meets on either Tuesdays, from 4:00 to 6:00pm PST or Thursdays, from 5:00 to 7:00PST.

The twelve weeks will provide an opportunity for wives to journey together towards better understanding and insight into their situations, receive the comfort of others who know what they’re going through, and to be better equipped and strengthened for their own unique challenges.

    I’m glad you found us here at WifeBoat, and I’m glad you posted your comment here. A common thing wives tell me is that it’s hard to find someone to trust with what they’re going through. I hear it over and over, and I just wish it wasn’t so. But it is.

    It sounds like your husband is working in the ministry, and this makes everything more complicated. Secret sin, in any Chrstian’s life is serious, but even more so in someone who is in a position of leadership! It’s urgent that he seek out help from a Christian counselor immediately before something tragic happens. He can get help to overcome this, but he has to bring it to the light.

    In addition, you have every right to expect that your husband be faithful to you and stop disrespecting you by this behavior. You must also think about your children and the effect this may be having on them, and begin to set boundaries about what is acceptable and what is not. If your husband won’t respond to that, then you’ll need some support to help you keep consistent.

    If you are unable to find support in your area, please check out my husband’s site at joedallas.com for options on counseling, books, and resources that can help. Our new WifeBoat Support groups will be starting up again in May, so please check that resource as well.

    Wendy, part of getting help is making the decision yourself to take action. If you don’t, things will only get worse. I’ll be praying for the Lord to give you wisdom and strength to take those steps. He will bless your efforts as you trust Him and step out in faith. Please stay in touch and let us know how you’re doing. -R

    Hello, I just found this page and I am in tears, God knows I need help and it is hard to find some one who you may trust; and I need and I ask God for help, and help for my husband. I installed xxxchurch more than 6 months ago, just to be curious what it was about. But my curiosity just killed me, when I found that my husband has an addiction, it was shocking for me. But here I am, I love him, and don’t know how to help him. He recognizes his weakness. Later I found he began to smoke, and little by little it’s like I’m losing him.

    We are Christians, have three beatiful babies and 7 years of marriage, and yes–he works for “Him”….. The first time I didn’t how to react, and the last time it’s like I have to accept it. But I won’t. He said it’s something he cannot quit, but it’s just killing us and separating us.

    I thank you, for letting God direct you and pray that we may have victory. Blessings.
