is my rock, in whom I take refuge. He is my shield and
the horn of my salvation, my stronghold. (Psalm 18:2)
you. I read your book about Detaching from the
Alcoholic Spouse over the weekend. Your words rang
true deep within my heart. Actually, on the way to
church, my son, who is studying with Moody Bible
college almost repeated verbatim what you wrote! May
God bless you and your husband with this very real
First of all I have to tell you that your weekly
newsletters in my inbox keep me going! I know that God directed me straight to this website
because the few articles I have read that you all have
wrote on forgiveness has really gave me conformation
through my situation.
Angie and Frank its a blessing to find this great
sight of encouragement, you are doing a great job for Christ
and if all are to understand the word of the
lord or have such great advice and encouragements, many
marriages will not fail today.
I was such the internet when i came across your sight
and it has been a blessing ever since.
I just wanted to let you know how
blessed I was reading the e-book, “How do I
detach....?” To me this was a confirmation what the
Holy Spirit has been leading, teaching and guiding me
in all along for the last 5 yrs of separation from my
alcoholic husband. I was just as sick as my husband
was and its been through this separation I began to
get healthy. I have learned how to detach from my
husband and the alcoholism.

Hi Angie &
, Your ministry is a blessing. Your ministry is a great
source of advice to me on day to day life, a tutor and a
marriage counselor too.
Please keep me in prayer, Sister J.
I personally wish to send you gratitude for what your
mission is and answering your call.
Dear Angie -
Your response is one more testimony that God hears me
and my prayers. With all my heart, I thank you for your
ministry and generosity!Happy Thanksgiving! -- D.
I wanted to thank you for all the help you have
unknowingly provided to me over the last year and a
half. I would like to express to you my appreciation and
admiration for the work of God that you do. It has truly
been a lifeline for me. Peace A.M
I want to thank you for the
materials that God has enabled you to write.
I wanted to share this with you
so that you can give glory to God with me for
allowing yourselves to be used as his vessels to
speak truth into the darkness of addictive
situations and broken marriages.
All glory to God,
I started reading your book last
night, and although I am only on page 16, it has
already helped me understand so much. I woke up this
morning feeling so much more peaceful then I have been
in a very long time. I look forward to reading the
rest of it and sharing it with my partner. Thank you
for writing it:) -- M.
LOVE YOUR column and I have your book. I
thought I was detaching but after reading today I
realize I have a long ways to go..
How are you and your husband? I must commend you both
for the great job the Lord is using you to do in this
ministry, and have been a great source of inspiration
I’ve been searching around online for some good

are doing wonderful work for the Lord.

STILL LEARNING. I ONLY PRAY MY WIFE LOOKS INTO YOUR MINISTRY.
you, your site has been eye-opening and it has enforced
the things that my husband has been trying for the
longest to enlighten me in...LIVING IN THE LIGHT. The
thing about it is that I am the saved, baptized one in
our relationship, we have been experiencing marital
problems for the past 5 years and living separated now
for almost 4 years. I believe that I have now found the
answer to my prayers and I am working on ME so that I
can become the woman GOD desires me to be!!! Please pray
for me and for the restoration of my marriage. 2011 is
the year that God will restore everything the devil
tried to steal!
you for this Ministry. I've been blessed with
understanding. Please pray for me and my lovely and
faithful wife for healing and restoration. Thank you!
I want to thank you for all you're doing to help those
who are living with this disease. I stumbled across
your website last week on my 21st anniversary. After
20 years of doing it the wrong way and separating from
my husband, I found Al-Anon and began my life anew.
Everything you say is so true. The first benefit of
detachment is that you find peace within yourself. As
you gain strength, you begin to realize that you'll be
fine whether the alcoholic gets help or not. You're
living your life for yourself, your children, your
job, your friends..... the good stuff. I'm still
saddened by the loss of the marriage I wanted to have,
but I know I can remain committed to him (in an
emotionally safe way) and have a great life at the
same time. I wish you and your family a very happy new

articles are a source of encouragement to me. I ran
across your site while researching information on
divorcement. I am a 57 yo man from NJ. After 32 yrs
my wife left 3 yrs ago. I've heard , including in
Christian divorce counseling ,advice that really
runs the full spectrum. I have trusted to let
God lead me on this. I still seem to be a bit
unclear on direction. Your articles help....keep up
the good work. Any resources would be appreciated.

I have been richly blessed.
like to say a very big thank you for your help and
devotion to marriage issues. God bless you.
want to thank you Angie for your transparency and
for your article “Overcoming Addiction”.
I am addict. Until Friday I was drug free for a
year. Much of what you wrote was very true for me in
Last night I prayed and sought Gods will about this,
but I had so many thoughts flooding my head I
couldn’t think and went to bed..

an unfaithful Husband. I know that I have repented,

Dear Angie and Frank, I thank you guys for sending this kind of uplifting
article always in my ebox. May the Lord richly bless
you and your relationship as well. Hope to find
and hear more advices from you....Sincerely,
Dear Angie – I am a married man
looking to improve my marriage. I Googled “God
Purpose Sex” this morning and was directed to your
article on www.ezinearticles.com
is God's Purpose For Sex" and then to your
ministry website. I read many of the your
articles and they have helped me get back in touch
with better ways of thinking about my marriage.
I will pursue these truths further in the coming days
and weeks. I just wanted to thank you and your
husband for your ministry and presenting again God’s
truth in your words and experience; thank you both for
sharing. May God Bless you both and his ministry
through you. - L.
Angie. I read
all of the articles on your website on addiction
in marriage. I came across it via google and it
gave me hope, as in my heart I know I didn't
marry the wrong person, even though people on the
outside would try and say different. Too many
people give advice to 'jump ship', but I know
divorce has it's own inherent problems. I have
learnt so many strategies for living life in peace, no
matter what the circumstances. It means a lot to
me to have you and your husband praying for my husband
and marriage. I look forward to reading
more on your website and going back to the
material when I need a little encouragement! Thanks
Angie~ Your reply to me through
your weekly column was the confirmation I needed.
Thank you so much. The Lord has been silent as I
have been praying for wisdom in all things concerning
my husband and seeking a divorce from him. The divorce
question will be left to my husband as you
advised. I pray I can have a "do over"
in my marriage and be the godly wife God intended me
to be. I want a Christ centered marriage and to
serve God together as a family. That is my dream
for the future. I am a child from divorce
parents also due to adultery. My
grandparents also divorced for the same reason.
I want to break this curse so my girls never will have
to endure this...God has been so faithful and has
drawn my girls (24, 19, 17) close to Him. He has
protected us, provided for us, and is healing our
broken hearts. God bless you for the
ministry you do. I feel God lead me to your

but a thank you for this website (Heaven
It has answered questions that have remained
unanswered for me for a long time and very few people
actually understand that I'm not mad to stay with my
husband who's an alcoholic binge drinker. I am a
Christian and love my husband. We need more
articles of this type, as opposed to 'get rid' and
move on advice. Anyway, thanks again you have
really encouraged me and given me hope.
Dear Angie, I am so glad that i
found your site!! I have been dealing with finding out
my husband cheated for about a month. Please Angie
Pray for me because it is really affecting me
physically and mentally!!!
I am really bless with your mails
about marriage. I want you to pray for me so that God
will connect me with my help mate. may the lord bless
you all in Jesus name.
I read your article on Healing a marriage
after divorce, and I just have to say thank
God for the wisdom he gave you to write that
article. I will refer to it often to
help remind me of the possibilities.
Dear Angie, Thanks for the wonderful articles
with biblical references on marriages that you
give to all the queries sent to you. It does help a
lot to read your emails.
contacted you a couple years ago regarding my
soon-to-be husband who had a drinking problem. A
lot has happened since then…we did get married and
for awhile he seemed to do better… for awhile.
Jim even struck out on his own and bought out a
business and has been seeing success! But things
started spiraling downhill awhile ago to the point
where I was questioning my faith and God’s
“unwillingness” to help. Jim was changing
and so was I. Neither of us for the better.
Last week, I finally admitted to myself that my
husband was an alcoholic (previously, I would admit he
had a problem…but never admitted to anyone but
myself that he was an alcoholic) and that it was time
that I took responsibility for my actions as his
enabler. I journaled my thoughts and prayed
again for the strength to step back from his addiction
and be given the wisdom to know the difference between
enabling and being a supportive wife.
Sunday night, two days after my own admission, I got a
call at work from my husband asking for help. He
had hit his personal rock bottom. I was glad
that with all we’d been through that he still knew
he could count on me when the time came. I
picked Jim up and in tears he told me that he was an
alcoholic and he needed help with his recovery.
Yesterday morning, I remembered I had purchased your
Alcoholism Trap”. We sat down and read it
aloud to each other. Both of us found so much
comfort in your words and the bible verses. You
are right…only God can delivery Jim. And I
believe that God has been trying to tell him for some
time that he needed to make the change. But it
took Him to grab Jim by the scruff of the neck on
Sunday and say “Son! Enough!” for Jim to not
only hear but to listen to his Father. Thank you
so much for the strength in your words!
Jim attended an AA meeting yesterday at a local church
and will be attending another meeting tomorrow with a
good friend of ours from church he saw at that meeting
(we had no idea! It was such a God thing!).
We realized how much we enjoyed reading together when
we read your book, so I purchased a couples
devotional. I called our pastor and will be
meeting with him as a couple to help strengthen our
relationship with each other and with Christ because
without Him this isn’t possible.
I know the battle is not won and there is a long road
and lifetime commitment involved. But God is
here! And your book helped us to realize that.
Thank you, Angela! And God bless you and your
Thank you. I purchased your book, "Love
the Women you Married" and read it three
times so far. Its very inspirational when you are in
the middle of a break up with your fiancée. I love
her and miss her dearly. I just purchased your other
the Man you Married" and hope to send it to
her. Sheeesh what a time to be going through. My pride
and selfishness ruled over the Lord's Wisdom. I've
learned through your book the importance of seeking
the Lord's wisdom in my life. I guess its up to the
Lord whether this relationship comes back together.
I've just given it to the Lord. D.P
really enjoy reading your columns; they have provided
me with the strength that I need when feeling lonely
God bless you guys. I love this website so much. I'm a
newlywed and thank God I found a site that can serve
as a godly older woman in my life on how to be a godly
wife. Thank you guys so much. I was wondering if there
is anyone I can contact with prayer requests?
I have recently began to read
some of your articles through "The Vine". I
found them rather interesting, but mostly
inspirational. God Bless you for all that you do for
those who often need words of guidance and
encouragement. May God continue to use you as one of
his servants to continue teaching people how we should
live for our marriages in a world that is of us but
not in us. Blessed, E.
Thanx for the good work you are doing to help us
sustain our marriages. Uganda Africa
I read your web page about living
with a cheating spouse, and it gave me hope. Please
help me to learn to pray so God will listen to me and
save my marriage. Love L.
Thank you for just listening and
not making me feel stupid. Yesterday was easier than
the day before, I cried only a little, I went to our
library and got some books to help me understand how
to pray better and how to open my heart to Gods word.
Again thank you, I am a member of your site now. You
really made a difference THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!
Thank you Angie! God bless you!
This article (Forgive and Love a Cheating Spouse)
really touched me and I am sure that this is the word
from God that I needed. I thank Him for using you. I
recently found out that my husband cheated on me. I
know that he loves me and I him. I realize that there
are several reasons, some that you've mentioned that
lead up to his ultimate act of actually having sex
with another woman. I have prayed and asked God for a
word; I've asked Him to show mr how to forgive my
husband. My prayer has been answered. I will not only
share this word with my husband but also with my
family and friends so that they may be able to
understand this situation. So that they will forgive
him too and will understand why I will not give up on
my marriage. God Bless You and again, thank you so
have stumbled on a page on line you had on
another website...and i like it so much i went to your
site to see what other advice you can offer...and let
me tell you...god is smiling on you and your family for
all the help you have provided others...
Thank you so much for your time to answer. I have
re-read your article on "Forgiveness". It
truly an inspiration and a help. I am working on
trying to forgive. The road seems long but with
the Lords help I am confident I will get there. Thank
you for being such a blessing to many. If I have more
concerns I will e-mail you again. S.
Just to let you know that I have greatly benefited
from your articles on marriage. I must say it saved my
marriage of 30 years from going to the rocks. N.
I want to thank God for your obedience in sharing such
insightful truths about marriage. I am presently in the middle of a crisis wherein my
spouse cheated on me. I am devastated. I have committed myself to find out as
much as possible about forgiveness. I have found your materials to be "a word in due
season." I thank you for your sincerity. With
Love and Appreciation. M.
Thank you so much for all you do. You do more for God
than you do for your self and hope one day you will
come to Uganda and teach us more. Be blessed in all
you do. Pastor C. B.
Wow your piece on resentment was so powerful.
It really touched my heart. I am dealing with

After having a terrible argument with my wonderful husband this morning, and hearing things from his mouth that left me feeling deserted, I turned to FaithWriters unaware there was a section on marriage. O.K. God, I'm listening.
There were several articles appearing above yours, "Understanding Our Emotions". I read them but felt unfulfilled.
That's when I spotted "Understanding". You were able to hit the nail on the head in several ways. I haven't even finished reading the article but needed to tell you the peace that began to wash over me.
Congratulations on opening your heart to God and fulfilling a purpose He has for you through writing.I'm anxious to read more of your articles.
Thanks again! Be blessed and receive, M. B
Thank you. I recently confronted my husband of 5 years about his adulterous
affair. I needed guidance on forgiveness & how to get rid of the
anger, rage & hurt that the affair has caused within me. Your
article was very informative & helpful with many scriptures to keep in
my spiritual bank. Thank you for having the courage to write such an
unconventional newsletter. We live in unconventional times & it
helps to know that Christian material is available for all types of marital
I just wanted to let you know that I'm amazed by the fact that I have
seen 2 different counselors over the past few years and one immediately
wanted to put me on anti-depressant medication (which I opted not to do) and
the other was steering me down the "do whatever it takes...everyone
will survive with or without one another" path. And the
advice you have given me me over just the past month is what is hitting home
and making sense! I even spent 4 days (24 hrs total) attending a long
weekend seminar about "waking up and finding yourself" and that
didn't even work.
I've read 3 of your newsletter articles found in
the Heaven Ministries website and can relate to and understand what you are
trying to teach people. The hard part is putting it all into real life play!
Just another little thank you to YOU!
Again, I'll keep in touch as progress is made and/or if I'm stuck and can't
Please pray for my family .. My brother is suffering from depression and panic
attacks. He is the bread winner at home helping to support our elderly
parents and disabled sister ... there are times that he can't go to work and
now his job is in jeopardy. Please pray for us he is under medical care but
its God's help that we (he) needs ... he calls out to God for help ... and
its so very hard to see him like this ... please, please pray for us. This
is affecting our whole family and I can see the fear and desperation in all
our faces ... please, hold us up in prayer.
I am an extremely independent woman and found this article to be amazing. (Re:
article on submission I was a teen bride and then remarried in my early
20's. That also failed. Now at 36, I am newly engaged and am in complete
agreement with every word that was spoken in your article!
For years I attempted to be 'equal' to my mate. It is
only recently that I fully understand the Devin meaning of Christ wanting to
have my helpmate lead and for us to go forth together. I know the reason it took
me so long was due to my upbringing, the horrible childhood and a past that
haunted me. I am very pleased to say the the Lord brought my fiancée and I together. He is God fearing, he wants to please me and
our Father, he will not 'abuse' the fact that I completely submit to him. I know
I can because I trust him with my life.
Again, I wish to thank you for such an outstanding
Hi Angie or do people call you "A.J."?
How have you been? How is your son's
health? Hope you and your family had
a wonderful holiday. Things have definitely
improved on my end ... my attitude has changed for the better ... a lot is
credited to YOU! My latest problem is that I
have a very dear friend who I met through my daughter (our daughter's are best
have been for 6 years) that is dieing from
cancer. She's been battling C for 3 years now and it's recently traveled to
her brain and I don't know what to do. She
is well known throughout our community for her volunteer work and kind disposition. She is/was a neonatal nurse
at Loyola ... probably the most caring they ever had. Everyone wants to
help her and her family, but we don't know what
to do! I constantly offer to watch her 2 daughters so that she and her husband can enjoy an evening alone but I want
do do more. She is such a special and wonderful person, why does this have to happen to her?!?!?! I just
don't get it.
Any advice would be deeply appreciated ... as I
always value your thoughts.
God is good!
I'm thankful to you for sharing your encouraging words...by that I've learned so
many things, especially in my spiritual aspect, in so doing you are a blessing
Once again thank you and may God continue to shower you
His blessings and guide you always...

God is able!
Thank you so much for sending me an inspirational message. It helps me a lot in

Christian greetings! I'm requesting that your kind and
gracious office please send my friend Christians newsletters entitled Detach

Ourselves. Please let us pray for him as well as he will get to know the
Lord Jesus Christ as his personal Savior and that he may grow in God's saving
Knowledge. I'll be grateful with all my heart in your good office if you will
give attention to my letter and request. Thank you very much.
Very Truly Yours,

subscribers to your newsletter. I found very interesting and can help build up
my family and of course in my spiritual life as well. More power to you and God
bless us always.
Hello, This is S. I received your articles in my email from a good friend of
mine a few days ago. I must tell you that I just loved this article (communication) and, could
not stop from reading on!!!
I have always been interested in people relationships (who isn't???), and this
article really helped me to solidify certain beliefs that I kept inside but,
could not easily manifest in reality due to a lack of courage. I realize now
that in communicating my feelings in a calm manner with others in times of
frustration can really resolve my stress that I have been experiencing lately
these days. It will actually make my life easier.
Of course, the unconditional love I would require to carry out the communication
in the right way so that it will not result in arguments. Only thing that really
worries me is does this unconditional love thing really apply to dating
relationships? Not give all attitude but, to let the man know how I really
feel...wouldn't this usually sabotage the development of the relationship that
it may "scare off" the man???
Love in Christ
