Site Update in Progress

Our website is currently undergoing an update that may take a few months. We hope this process will not create difficulties for our users. But if you do encounter challenges, please email me at, and I will be happy to help you.

Because some users are having difficulty accessing the online community, we are offering 2 FREE MONTHS OF COMMUNITY ACCESS. SIGN UP HERE.

We are a community of women whose lives have been impacted by our partners' sexual addiction.  Each of us cares deeply about the heartache and confusion you feel and wants to provide encouragment, hope, and support. We offer a variety of ways to connect. Do you need to share your story with someone who gets it? We invite you to take advantage of our offer of a free, one time, one-on-one, sixty minute telephone call. Simply click on "Talk With Someone" above then choose the "Online Assessment" option. Also under the "Talk With Someone" link above you will find other options to explore as well. 

Our Facebook page is another good place to connect, find information, and inspiration:

help for wives of sex addictsJourney to Healing and Joy is a ministry developed to help wives of sex addicts. Here you will not automatically be labeled codependent. Rather, based on recent research, we believe most partners of sex addicts are suffering from trauma, and that many of their symptoms will ease as their trauma is addressed.

This ministry grew out of the personal and professional experience of Christian counselor, author, and speaker, Marsha Means, co-author of "Your Sexually Addicted Spouse." If your husband has affairs, is addicted to pornography, struggles with same-sex attraction, or some other form of extra-marital sexual behavior, you are in the right place. The counselors and coaches who offer help and support here have personally experienced the pain and loss sex addiction brings, whether one is the sex addict or his partner.

Each of us cares deeply about the heartache and confusion you feel and wants to provide encouragement, hope, and support. Because we have not only survived our own painful experiences with sex addiction—but gone on to thrive—we want to help you make the same healing journey. We invite you to reach out and ask us for help.
