Josh and Jaelyn Harrel (@restoredliving) are boldly sharing their story of infidelity, betrayal, confusion and God's redeeming grace.


I know that not every story ends this way, I have had relationships near and dear to me that ended after an affair, but I have also been very fortunate to see the true reconciliation that Jesus can bring after very real betrayal. 


During today’s conversation, Josh and Jaelyn discuss the hardship that they faced when Josh had a deep, emotional affair, that included photos and videos, with someone of the same sex.


The Wife Project: From Roommates to Soulmates launches on November 7th! Sign up for the waitlist here! 


They discuss the impact that pornography and sexual addiction has on a marriage, but most importantly, the very real work that Jesus has done within their marriage since that point. They discuss the healing process, the struggle in pursuing intimacy after the fact, accountability and how Jesus has been the healer of their hearts.


I pray that, for anyone who has walked through the tragedy of marital betrayal, that you will also see the genuine HOPE that comes with the death of Christ on the cross for our sins and brokenness. It does not have to be the end of your story.


For those of you wives who may be struggling within your marriages, whether it is from small or large betrayals, or if you just want to grow closer with your spouse and become best friends again, I want to remind you that The Wife Project Course: From Roommates to Soulmates will have its FINAL launch on Nov. 7th! This 8 1/2-week course has been transforming marriages and deeply impacting women who are single, engaged, and those married for 5 months to 50 years. We discuss biblical forgiveness, pursuit, navigating marriage with a spiritually dry spouse, how to have fun again, and so much more!

    87 | The Relationship Between Faith and Feelings with Toni Collier

    38:56

    Faith and emotions are not exclusive and separate. Emotional and mental stability are not always 'fixed' by faith and sometimes it is just not possible to pray the depression or anxiety away. Mental health has become a much more widely discussed topic within the church and our sweet guest, Toni Collier, shares her perspective on the balance between trusting God and also feeling the feelings that He has created us to experience while not allowing our feelings to sway our obedience of God's word.

    86 | Why a Child-Centered Marriage Will Hurt Your Family with Jesse Maestas

    27:57

    It's easy to end a long night of bedtime routines and go your separate ways from your spouse to find some rest and relaxation. It's easy to love and protect our little ones so much that we lose sight of the needs of our spouse. But when a family is not structured the way that God has designed it to be, it begins to create a slow drift that will eventually drown a marriage.  P.S. You guys, it's time! The Wife Project Course: From Roommates to Soulmates is HERE for the FINAL LAUNCH! Don't miss it! Fight for a happier, healthier marriage in 2022 - it begins with you because nobody else will do it for you. In a society that treats our marriages as disposable, we have to do the hard work & fight in faith to fulfill God's beautiful design of marriage. The easy way out is very rarely the best way out. On today's episode, Jesse and I share our own experiences with the damage caused by a child-centered marriage after we had our first son. We discuss the moment that we were called out on it and what we have learned from that point. We share practical wisdom on how to restructure your family dynamic, or simply strengthening it, and why this design is created to help us, not hurt us. We pray that this conversation helps your marriage immensely and causes you to seek Jesus in the way that He wants to shift your family focus and design.  Follow along on Instagram @livingeasywithlindsey for more biblical encouragement on marriage, sex, friendships and faith.  Help a girl out: don't forget to subscribe to The Living Easy Podcast on iTunes and Spotify and give a quick star rating and review!

    85 | Following God When Your Spouse Doesn't: The Spiritually Dry Marriage with Jesse Maestas

    41:01

    Faith and leadership aren't always linear. My husband, Jesse, has struggled for years with his faith, his understanding of God's role in his life and also with his role as the leader of our family. There were many days in which I struggled with feeling deceived by him, because the faithful man that I dated was not the struggling man that I was married to. As a wife and mom, I have personally taken over the leadership role for many years in taking my boys to church, reading the Bible, praying over them and more. God has been drawing Jesse in recently in a way that I have never seen and we are both realizing how much Jesus has taught us along the way. In this honest conversation, Jesse and I discuss how to navigate a spiritually dry or unbelieving spouse, the list of unhealthy expectations that I had coming into marriage, the ways I hurt Jesse and helped Jesse when he was doubting God and more.   You still have time to sign up for The Wife Project waitlist! It launches on November 7th!!

    82 | Do You Miss Your Old Self, Mama?: How to Feel More Human, Adjust Your Parenting & Leave Guilt Behind

    50:11

    This is a conversation that I fully, completely believe in and plan to have FAR more often.  On today’s episode with Sarah Bragg, author of A Mother’s Guide to Raising Herself, we discuss the importance of not losing yourself within your motherhood, but rather growing INTO yourself. Jesus prunes us as we raise our little ones, mamas. The Wife Project FINAL LAUNCH is on November 7th! Don't miss it! Sign up for the waitlist today! He grows us just as much as we work to raise our little ones up well during our time together. But the question that I want to challenge you with today is: are you willing to be sanctified in your motherhood? Are you willing to fight for your own mental health rather than giving up and giving in? Sarah and I are honest and vulnerable in this conversation as we discuss the struggles that we've had within our own parenting, how it’s never too late to change your parenting style and how I’m navigating that in my own life right now, why showing up on the days when you’re burnt out is more than enough and how to deal with pressure from family members when they tell you how to raise your own children.  Get your WEEM Gummies here and use code LIVEEASY for 10% off of your purchase! Don't forget to share this episode with one family member or friend! Follow along with Sarah at @sarahwbragg and Lindsey @livingeasywithlindsey.

    81 | Dear Sister, Do You Feel Stuck? How to Live Well in Seasons of Waiting with Alyssa Bethke

    53:14

    Alyssa Bethke's new book: Satisfied: Finding Hope, Joy, and Contentment Right Where You Are came at such a timely moment for me and I knew her wisdom would bless you guys as well! Whether you feel stuck in your life, your job, your growth or faith or you struggle with discontentment as a whole, this conversation is for you. Sign up for The Wife Project Waitlist, launching Nov. 7th!  I believe that so many of us (including myself) can become really exhausted because we live life searching for the next best thing. But sometimes Jesus isn’t ready to give us that next thing yet - or maybe it isn’t part of His plan to ever make that change. A "maybe later" answer to our prayers can often be a painful or confusing place to be in. Alyssa (@alyssajoybethke) and I share our personal experiences and biblical perspective on the waiting seasons of life and why that waiting is not in vain. If you feel stuck in your life, if you feel like God isn’t answering your prayers, if you feel like someone else is where you wish you could be - this conversation is for you.
