Focus on the Family to release “How God Used ‘the Other Woman,’” Tina Konkin’s unexpected story of rebuilding
her marriage after infidelity

Carol Stream, Ill. (May 8, 2019) Focus on the Family, in alliance with Tyndale House Publishers, will release How God Used “the Other Woman” on July 9, 2019. Tina Konkin and her husband were both working as marriage counselors when she learned that he was having an affair with her best friend. Amid her devastation, Tina felt God asking her this question: “What role did you play in this, Tina?” That question and her willingness to answer it led to a restored, renewed marriage that was better than ever before, as well as a marriage counseling program that has an 80 percent success rate.

Tina Konkin is a registered professional counselor with 25 years of experience in personal coaching and leading relationship seminars. She is the cofounder and executive director of Relationship Lifeline and the author of Love, Sex and Money. She regularly speaks to men’s and women’s groups, couple’s conferences, church groups, and business organizations. For couples in distress or on the brink of divorce, How God Used “the Other Woman” will provide proven tools for restoring and improving a marriage, even after betrayal.
