A gripping true story of courage and perseverance after infidelity.
Released by Focus On The Family July 9th, 2019.
“HOW GOD USED THE OTHER WOMAN” is a brave new book based on the incredible true story of faith, love and redemption in light of overwhelming odds against all three of those things.
When Tina Konkin, renowned marriage expert and speaker finds out her husband Ron, a speaker and marriage expert in his own right, is having an affair with her close friend, God transforms this disaster into one of His promises that what was intended for evil He would turn to good.
“Tina passed through order (a secure marriage) to chaos (infidelity) and back to order (restored marriage) and then (chaos) widowhood. This is a remarkable story of choosing to let the power of love conquer all.”
My friend Tina Konkin experienced a fiery trial in her marriage. Divorce could have been the end of her story, but instead, through prayer, hard work, and a powerful dose of God’s redemptive grace, she and her husband emerged from that crisis with a deeper and stronger relationship than they had known before. Now Tina has dedicated her life to ministering to couples in crisis and helping them find healing and renewal—a mission we heartily embrace at Focus on the Family. If your marriage is at a breaking point, this book can help.
This courageous story of brokenness and betrayal reveals how God can bring hope and restoration in the midst of marital devastation. Journey with Tina and her husband, Ron, through their struggle to learn and apply the healing principles of the “R3 Factor: Reveal, Rewrite, Renew,” while rebuilding their marriage with compassion and forgiveness. Their Relationship Lifeline ministry has breathed new life into hundreds of marriages, including many in my own church family. For anyone experiencing the pain of betrayal, I encourage you to grab hold of Tina’s story and trust Jesus to transform your relationships into something more than you could ever imagine.
This book is a treasure that is filled with such wisdom and insight that has been gained at a great personal cost.
We had a unique, inside view into this story and saw the impact it had as the devastation unfolded. We also were privileged to witness the hard work and effort that went into allowing God to go to work, creating such beauty from the ashes that could have buried them.
Everyone needs this book or knows someone who needs it. Tina courageously invites us into her story to learn from her journey, and has filled this book with godly wisdom and insight on how to take steps to move forward in life.
As pastors, we are committed to seeing marriages, families and relationships thrive and we consider it an honour and privilege to support and endorse this book and the work and ministry of Tina Konkin.
