Acts of betrayal have the power to violate our sense of trust. Additionally, according to The Johns Hopkins Hospital, harboring these feelings can contribute to a myriad of physical burdens: depression, heart disease, and diabetes. Forgiveness and healing often take a lifetime, but they don’t have to.
In his new book, Beyond Betrayal: Overcome Past Hurts and Begin to Trust Again (Harvest House Publishers, Feb. 11, 2020), author Phil Waldrep shares his harrowing experience with betrayal and guides readers on their healing journey to overcome feelings of resentment and discover a life of health, healing and wholeness.
“My hope is that, in these pages, I can meet you where you are—whether you are in the pit of the pain the betrayal caused or if it has been a few years since it occurred, we can work together towards a better you,” writes Waldrep.
When law enforcement officers surprised Waldrep at his office, he never imagined the series of events that would unfold. Though the ministry was not its target, the investigation brought to light an employee’s undesirable activities and left Phil with no choice but confrontation. Waldrep was devastated and ultimately ended the relationship.
For the next several years, Phil walked through the feelings of betrayal in search of hope and healing and discovered solutions to overcoming his pain and resentment. In Beyond Betrayal, which features a foreword by New York Times bestselling author Ann Voskamp, Waldrep helps readers process their feelings, using his personal story and others’ experiences to point them to a brighter tomorrow.
