Here’s a life-changing question for couples broken by pornography that want more than anything to see their marriages mended…
What’s the difference between a marriage restored where trust is once again a thing…
…and your current state of fear, shame, guilt, and complete brokenness?
If you guessed…
…pretending it never happened. You would be wrong.
…chalking it up “pornography is the norm.” You would be mistaken.
…or just calling it quits. You would still be ever so badly mistaken.
Because at the end of the day, it isn’t about ignoring problems, blaming one another, or giving up, but really and truly fighting together to build lasting trust.
Like anything else in the world, there are two ways of doing things: give up by ignoring it or digging in, doing the hard work, and fighting for your marriage.
If restoration is what you want in your marriage...
Here’s what you will need to know about a fully restored marriage that experiences complete trust and can be better than it was before…
While the potential for every broken couple to enjoy complete trust is very possible, it takes very directed steps to see restoration in marriage.
With these direct steps in place, the days of fear, shame, guilt, and complete brokenness will become a thing of the past as you begin to experience benefits of these directed steps.
The internet can be so overwhelming with all the well-meaning marriage advice at your finger tips, leaving you feeling not sure where to start or what trust even means.
If you’re anything like us when we started this journey to restoration in 2016, you know that you don’t want to ignore the problem or pass it off as normal. That just requires you to move on while your marriage is falling apart and you are dying inside. Yet having just discovered that your spouse has been using pornography and with the complete brokenness you feel, you may be unsure how survive right now, let alone how to actually move past and live a normal life with your spouse again.
The more we committed to building lasting trust, the more we began to see that we might actually be able to walk through the betrayal and come out as one on the other side. The more transparent we were in the beginning, the more confident we became that we could overcome. We saw the importance of repentance, confession, and transparency and how they all played a part in our healing. However, we were eager for the hurt to be over and for the distance between us to go away, so that our normal could return to our marriage and ultimately our family.
As we faithfully forged ahead, we were on the road to restoration without realizing that true freedom and complete restoration was going to be the reward that we reaped for being committed to our marriage.
It felt great to finally experience trust and freedom again in our marriage.
Now, we help broken couples remove the feeling of isolation and identify where to begin in rebuilding trust!
But before we share our story with you, we want to tell you about why the majority of marriages broken by pornography aren’t finding the full restoration that they deeply desire.
After four years with couples fighting the pornography battle, we have witnessed so many who were completely broken. Only, not just broken, but utterly embarrassed and living in constant fear that the offending spouse would break his or her promise to never do it again. The constant stress as well as worry, doubt, and fear of whether or not their marriage could EVER be the same again, is inevitably what HAS kept them from moving toward the result that they so desire, which is restoration.
We know, based on statistics, that hundreds of couples are smoothing it over, making excuses, and choosing to look past it for years because it’s “normal.” Spouses are blamed for over-reacting because “it’s not even real.” They go on and on like this with a constant fear that sometimes gets buried for chunks of time when things are going well, but it lies dormant because it is never dealt with. Yet sadly, couples are no closer to experiencing true and lasting restoration.
Married couples really are some of the most dedicated people we know and deserve to experience how these directed steps truly lead to restoration in their marriage.
We are talking about…
The good news is that almost every one of these can be overcome! In fact, most of this list will be simplified with our roadmap put into place.
These things are fueled by the anger, fear, and doubt that keeps couples stuck in their current state of broken trust, instead of giving them the steps to true and complete restoration. When experiencing broken trust, all kinds of emotions are going to show up, but it’s how we decide to manage them and what we decide to do apart from them that really counts!
The truth is that if you want different results, you need to do things differently. It’s time to STOP sweeping things under the rug, and face them head on.
But first, you need to know exactly what these steps are that leads to restoration in your marriage.
Marriages always start with so much potential!
You have so many visions and thoughts of what your married life will be like. It’s exciting to be spending the rest of your life with your best friend! We all want the fairy tale.
That’s why it’s completely devastating when your spouse breaks the trust you have built. The person you trusted most in the world, the one you delighted in, the one you gave everything for, broke his or her vow, and thus, left your relationship broken.
On top of that…
And it is with this ‘knowledge‘ that you can’t move forward to the restoration that you so desire, doing what you believe to be the solution
even though you experience brokenness and defeat again and again in your marriage.
SoSo!You pull yourself up, get yourself together, and determine to forgive and just let it go. It starts off with grit and determination- but you find yourself still hurting and not able to leave your bitterness behind.
You begin doubting yourself.
You start comparing your journey with other couples.
You wonder what you are missing that they are doing right. Why is their marriage so much better? Do they never have problems?
You begin thinking that you must have brought this on yourself. Self-doubt sets in, and you start believing that you could have done something to keep your spouse’s eyes on you alone.
Then you begin questioning your entire marriage…
What am I doing here?
How do I move past this?
Why do feel so low and so all alone?
Am I even deserving of my spouse’s devotion?
And worst of all…
Even if I figure out how to really forgive and move forward, is it even possible for me to trust my spouse again?
How can I ever feel normal in my marriage again?
Will he or she turn back to porn?
Is it even possible for us to overcome the broken trust with all the lies that covered the past?
Adding to your own concerns, the overwhelm increases because you don’t want everyone around you to see what you are dealing with. So, you put on your happy face and pretend everything is fine, yet this in and of itself further isolates you.
It doesn’t matter if you are a cup half-full or silver-lining person, you will eventually want to give up on trying to make your marriage work because it looks so different from what you thought it would or think it should. The fact that you’re not even sure you can forgive your spouse to actually start the process of restoration, is what keeps you stuck.
And that’s it.
You won’t be experiencing the beauty of transparency.
You won’t be experiencing the freedom of forgiveness.
You won’t be experiencing complete trust in your spouse.
You won’t see the marriage restoration that you so desire.
While what you want is to rebuild trust in your marriage, it’s often much easier to blame yourself, admit that it’s really “not that bad,” and put your head down and just move on. At least that’s what the world tells us.
It’s true: The Bible teaches that we must forgive. How many times? In Matthew, Jesus told the disciples to keep on forgiving, even seven times 70 times! (18:22) So yes, we are to forgive, but Jesus also says that to look at a woman with lust is to commit adultery in your heart. (Matthew 5:28) The point is that there are many moving pieces and it’s not a “just” forgive and forget.
So for all of your hard work, you will have attempted to fix your broken marriage by letting time “heal” your wounds. The truth is–that would be the worst thing you can do.
While the odds to seeing complete restoration in your marriage seems low – the potential of this happening is high!
Almost unreasonably high… with the right core elements.
SO many things have to look different from what many people will advise you to do, to even get started by laying the ground rules that leads to restoration in your marriage.
And because you are so busy in life and in your home already, you don’t have a lot of extra time to figure out the core elements for restoration with a trial and error approach.
The core elements to rebuilding trust are the very things that will begin to heal your hearts and your marriage when implemented correctly.
Establishing the foundation or laying the ground rules is the first step to rebuilding trust.
We understand that you don’t have the time or the head space to attempt to figure out the exact core elements that establishing the rules for restoration. You are emotionally and mentally exhausted!
In fact, the core elements necessary to restore your marriage are not easily found in one place outside of in-person counseling. You may find them here and there but because there’s so much from differing viewpoints (and many of them unhealthy) it took months for us to discover these elements. It was through much prayer, searching Scripture, and seeking godly counsel that we received restoration in our own marriage.
Assuming you can “fix your marriage” by simply pushing through like you see broken couples doing and get the same results is often what causes most marriages to experience a repeat break in trust. This will eventually rob the restoration from couples who desire to have their marriage back!
The difference between complete restoration and ready to give up is the firm foundation you build and other core elements of the journey.
With the right roadmap covering the core elements of building trust that leads to restoration, you will find the determination and desire to commit to rebuilding trust that will bring you healing and mending in your marriage.
Being the wife of Chris for 21 years, I’m so thankful for the restoration we found for ourselves and our marriage back in 2017.
Our story stared way back in 1996 when we became high school sweethearts. My heart desired a loving, doting, proud husband! And that’s just what it got. While our story has it’s bumps (like all do), we experienced a joyful, happy marriage until just after our 7th child was born.
That’s when he confessed to me that he had an addiction to pornography. He already had received repentance but he wanted to confess to me. He knew that by doing so, life was about to get very rocky.
It was on that hard, rocky road that we discovered the elements needed for complete healing and restoration in our marriage!
The biggest mistake that most couples make is that they don’t make accountability and transparency a priority.
These [accountability and transparency] along with communication and commitment are core elements for rebuilding broken trust in any marriage.
What couples don’t realize is that if they faithfully do take these steps in the beginning, they will be securing restoration.
And by restoration, we mean a marriage in which you can freely trust and be confident in.
When a couple is able to walk towards trusting again, they have secured restoration.
If so, I would love to introduce you to …

Chris’s desire to be free from the bonds of pornography led to his repentance and confession to Sabrina. He knew doing such would leave them both broken, but it was the only way to lead the way for healing.
Sabrina had no idea that her marriage would ever be turned upside down. It was in her loneliness and brokenness that she questioned all that she ever held dear. And she began a long, lonely road that she wasn’t sure would ever end.
This program has been birthed out of the journey they found themselves on and the steps they took to receive restoration in their marriage. This is a journey they took entirely by themselves, as the shame and guilt overtook them. Now, they understand the importance of sharing their story, which is why today you have the opportunity to take a trip on THE MARRIAGE RESTORATION ROADMAP™!
