Harboring Hope

Online course for betrayed spouses.

Regardless of whether the unfaithful spouse is supportive, unsupportive, or gone, we want you to feel hope again. Whole again. Home again.


What is Harboring Hope?

Harboring Hope is specifically designed for betrayed spouses by professional counselors who are also betrayed spouses. We know the pain. We have been there. We want you to know that you are not alone, you are not crazy, and you are not destined to grieve forever. Harboring Hope can help you discover what you need to heal and help you find hope in your circumstance. We want to rebuild your confidence and give you room to thrive.

“The pain of infidelity is overwhelming and all-consuming. Harboring Hope is a gift. For me, Harboring Hope is people who truly understand my pain and what I'm living through. Without them, it feels as if I would have no hope.” - A, Armenia

What resources will I have?

This faith-based course joins you with other betrayed spouses of the same gender in a private small group. The group communicates via a weekly telephone conference call as well as an online small group wall that is accessible 24/7. Your small group is a safe, intimate place where you receive support from others while on your path to recovery. Harboring Hope includes:

  • 12 week workbook
  • Streamed lecture videos
  • Weekly small group conference calls
  • Monthly Q&A Broadcast with Harboring Hope authors Leslie Hardie and John Haney
  • Small group wall for support throughout the week.
  • Complimentary six month Recovery Library membership

“Harboring Hope gave me the structure I needed to be able to work through the darkest time in my life so far.” -R, Texas

How does the healing process look in my day-to-day life?

Each week, you’ll start by reading the workbook chapter and watching the lecture video of Leslie and John. As you read the chapter, you will complete homework exercises, some of which you will share during your small group call. In addition, you’ll be able to submit questions to Leslie Hardie, LCSW and John Haney, PhD, LPC, the authors of Harboring Hope. Each month, we film their answers during a Q&A session and post them for you to watch online. You’ll also gain access to a library of past Harboring Hope Q&A sessions.

Harboring Hope also includes 6 months of free access to the Recovery Library, a $180 value containing hundreds of articles, videos, and Q&A recordings by Affair Recovery's experts.

Who are the Group Leaders?

Group Leaders are carefully selected. Almost all of our Group Leaders are alumni of Affair Recovery’s programs who are several years out. After experiencing incredible healing themselves, they feel a calling to help others who are where they once were. They have the compassion, desire, and talent that’s required to lead groups through this process. Our Group Leaders have more than just book-knowledge because they’ve personally experienced infidelity. They don’t just have sympathy; they have real empathy. We’ve found that people who have walked this path before and who have completed our Group Leader training program are able to provide incredible support, leadership, and encouragement during this difficult time. They are a light to others in darkness.

What have participants said about Harboring Hope?

“Harboring Hope provided me the opportunity to receive the excellent support and resources I desperately needed to heal. It literally provided me a way out of the isolation that the despair of infidelity can bring and into the fellowship of hope found through shared experiences of recovery.” – L, New Mexico

“My Harboring Hope time was just that MY time. My time to heal. My time to receive encouragement and hope. It was exactly what I needed to begin navigating through this nightmare to a hopeful tomorrow.” –Debbie, Kansas

“When I joined HH, I thought I was the only person experiencing the pain I was going through. Then I was connected with 5 other guys from Alaska to Austin. All of a sudden, I heard my story through their mouths. The same hurt, anger and frustrations were all expressed by these men. I'm so thankful for not only Harboring Hope, but for the other men that were able to work with me through our betrayal. I wasn't alone in my pain, these men were here to support me and mourn with me. Thanks for bringing hope back into my life.” -Jonathan, Arkansas

“Harboring Hope helped facilitate healing and personal growth during the most painful time in my life. I have gone from numbness, deep sorrow, and sadness to living with hope and confidence.” –M, Texas
