"Unholy Romance: A Christian Wife's Infidelity and Emotional Affairs Leads to Sandal in an African American Church by Emerald Woods.....
“How Did I Get Here?”
"That eventually became the question I was able to ask God and myself in the crushing days that followed my getting kicked out of my beloved church (for reasons I detail for you inside).
After all, I had a lot more time to follow the biblical admonitions to “consider your ways” and “come, let us reason together” now that my days were no longer filled with running to church meetings, buying batteries to place inside cordless microphones (I worked for the Technology Team of the church), working out like a demon and curling my weave to get ready and all prettied-up to see my “church husband” Kevin (as in - not my real husband).
In the days, weeks and months that followed my own personal D-day - the day I got kicked out - I was able to look back on my life to my thought patterns surrounding adultery - adultery as part of my family growing up, all throughout my first failed marriage, and into my current marriage with David, a beautiful man whom I’ve been with for nearly 20 years.
What came forth was a clearer picture of the reasons why I, as a 41-year-old woman, nearly ruined my life with what could have devolved from an emotional affair with Kevin - the "church husband" - into a disastrous adulterous physical affair – which sadly, my past is no stranger to.
Learning the following lessons helped me appreciate just how much tragedy God saved me from experiencing, and confirmed a few wrong choices that I never want to make again in life.
I knew while writing this book that many readers will make judgments about me and my life's decisions, and that's ok. But here’s hoping my story – including the screw-ups and the redemption – helps you as well.
Join me on my journey while I detail for you my dirty laundry, and how God finally cleaned it up for me."
What I got from this read....
This read..."Unholy Romance: A Christian Wife's Infidelity and Emotional Affairs Leads to Scandal in an African American Church" ... was some amazing true story that I enjoyed completely. The author really gives the reader a read that will hold your attention. I find this read for anyone who has gone through this type of situation will be able to identify very easily with all that is going on from the read. I love the way this author delivered this novel to the reader showing ... 'the emotional affair to a adulterous physical affair.' Wow, what was even greater from the read was the lessons learned from the affairs to finally getting on the right path where you can see how "God finally cleanses her after all she was involved in. This was indeed a good story and definitely a lesson learned.
