Has the pain of someone’s sexual betrayal devastated your life? Whether it’s betrayal due to pornography, affairs, adultery, voyeurism, lusting, prostitutes, sexting, sexual fetishes or same sex attraction — sexual betrayal is traumatizing.

The Restore Workshop helps women whose hearts have been shattered by sexual betrayal find hope. Many women who come to the workshop feel very alone and are filled with shame, anger and worthlessness. Some have never even shared their story. But once they arrive, they discover women of all kinds and ages are struggling as well, and they begin to feel safe to open up and share.

Restore is the place to realize you are not alone. Restoration is possible – if not for your marriage, for you!

SHELLEY MARTINKUS:  Shelley’s entire world changed years ago when she confronted her husband and demanded the truth about his secret life of infidelity. Little did Shelley know that his recovery from sexual addiction would be the impetus for her to begin looking honestly at her life-her past and her brokenness-and begin seeking healing and wholeness for herself and her marriage. Shelley speaks to many different audiences about her story and the story of their recovery. She and Jason also speak together, helping others find healing in their relationship after betrayal, and they provide training and information to professionals and lay people who are helping those in recovery. Her first book, Rescued, released in 2015. She is also a contributor for MOPs and writes blogs.

I am grateful that the focus was truly upon my heart’s condition.  I have tried a variety of strategies in the past and failed.  I have recently come to understand that I cannot “white knuckle” this and beat it in my own strength. I am walking away hopeful for true renewal and restoration.”


The degree of acceptance and non-judgmental love that I received from the staff as I arrived for this weekend opened the door of receptivity in my soul.”


I was surprised at the power of relationship.  How strange is it that you put a bunch of strangers together and eventually they share more than if they were brothers.  Obviously you guys know what you are doing.  God bless you all!
