Thank you for visiting Journey to Healing & Joy!

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 encouragement, hope, and support.
We offer a variety of ways to connect.

About Our Ministry

About Our Ministry

Journey to Healing and Joy is a ministry for 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.
