Why I Stayed
Publisher: Tyndale House Publishers

Duration: 9 hours 57 minutes
On November 2, 2006, Gayle Haggard's life changed forever when her husband, Ted Haggard, founder of the 14,000-member New Life Church in Colorado Springs and president of the National Association of Evangelicals, was publicly exposed in a scandal. In the days and months ahead, everything in Gayle's life was at stake, her beliefs, her marriage, and her relationship with the church community she had been a part of for more than 20 years. In Why I Stayed, Gayle walks us through the choices she made in her darkest hour and shares her renewed passion for the central message of the Bible, the liberating message of forgiveness and love. Why I Stayed reminds us of what less-than-perfect people desperately need, a community of family and faith that offers healing love and a path to restoration.
