Betrayal and Beyond – For women who have suffered betrayal from a spouses sexual addiction or pornography.

This small group study reveals the truth and nature of sexual addiction and how women are wounded by an addict’s behaviors.

Specific details to come soon. Limited space is available in this group. For more information or to join, please contact Markay Freed at 717-222-4181 (call or text) or markayfreed@gmail.com
