The Perfect Life

Do you ever worry that your life seems almost too perfect? It's amazing how quickly one event: an accusation, the threat of illness, and injury, or public airing of private activities can turn your world upside down. Yesterday's headlines about the governor of New York prove that.

When you hear shocking allegations about a person, how do you get past your own suspicions and fears to find the truth? Especially when the accusations are targeted at your spouse? This book takes you on a journey through tough times to examine how even a marriage that seems deeply rooted in God can falter when questioned. It will leave you wondering about the assumptions you hold regarding your own life and will hopefully cause you to strengthen your relationships based on God's design.


Katherine Clarkson has the perfect life. Married to Brad, a loving and handsome husband, respected in their church and the community. Two grown daughters on the verge of starting families of their own. A thriving ministry. Good friends. A comfortable life.

She has it all--until the day a reporter appears with shocking allegations. Splashed across the local news are accusations of Brad's financial impropriety at his foundation and worse, an affair with a former employee. Without warning, Katherine's marriage is shattered and her family torn apart. The reassuring words she's spoken to many brokenhearted women over the years offer little comfort now.

Her world spinning, Katherine wonders if she can find the truth in the chaos that consumes her. How can she survive the loss of what she thought was the perfect life?
