The Christian Doormat Podcast on Forgiveness

Forgiveness rock.jpg

Sherrae Phelps, a blogger of "The Christian Doormat", interviewed me on the topic of forgiveness: What is forgiveness?  When is it a virtue?  Can it make us vulnerable to harm?  Does it require reconciliation or trust?  These questions and more are taken up in the written and audio interview below

Ask a Mormon Sex Therapist Part 19

We tackle two questions submitted by listeners about infidelity in marriage. One question comes from a man whose wife had a series of affairs, and the other question from a woman whose husband was deceptive about his involvement with another woman.  Both questions address the issue of trust and trustworthiness : How it is created or ascertained, and how we sometimes collude in not knowing things about our spouse we are not sure we can handle.  Dr. Finlayson-Fife also makes a distinction between forgiving a spouse vs. reconciling with a spouse, and how to participate in creating a more trustworthy marriage.
