Book Review: I loved this book! It is informative and gives a positive example for others struggling to rekindle their marriage after such trauma. Moving and very powerful emotionally. The insights and honesty offered are right on the money and extremely well articulated. There can be no greater goal than rebuilding a marriage to the benefit of both spouses and the family. – Bettina Gregory, Psy. D, Host of American Life Television’s “American Family”
Martez and Woodrina Layton are the authors of, “A Blessed Affair; Be Careful What You Curse, Your Curse Could Be Your Blessing”, founders of Dream Builders Professional Coaching, and Healing Hearts Healing Homes.
Woodrina Layton’s lives and destiny were changed after both of their
affairs. In 2007, when Martez and
Woodrina could not find a Coach or Counselor who had overcome infidelity in
their marriage, God placed it on their hearts to become messengers of
reconciliation for other couples who would be fighting for their own marriages. Martez became a Certified Professional Coach
and Woodrina became a Licensed Professional Counselor. Together they are Certified Premarital
Counselors with a passion and commitment to see marriages avoid infidelity and
other pitfalls which may lead to divorce.
In 2009, Martez & Woodrina established, Dream Builders Professional Coaching for the sole purpose of “Changing Lives One Relationship at a Time.” In an effort, to become more of an advocate and resource for the community, they are launching their nonprofit organization and ministry Healing Hearts Healing Homes this year. Together they have been ministering, mentoring, speaking, coaching and counseling for over 20 years. Their mission is to heal homes and families by healing hearts with the message of reconciliation through God’s word, love, and grace.
We're mothers, daughters, sisters, friends, wives. Wives of men who cheated. Wives who have overcome our husbands' betrayal.
Never did we expect to be that last one. But here we are. Along with some wonderful women we've met on our journey toward wholeness, after feeling completely shattered. We call ourselves the "Betrayed Wives Club".
Why a Betrayed Wives Club?
But don't feel sorry for us. We're definitely not victims. Nor are you. We're kicking infidelity's (ahem) ass and remain determined to help you do the same.
Join the Betrayed Wives Club and join the conversation. It's the survival blog site for anyone who's ever been lied to, cheated on and left for dead.
Infidelity Counseling Network helps women heal from the pain of infidelity through free, confidential, one-to-one telephone peer counseling.

...Strengthened to cope with the emotional rollercoaster of betrayal
...Empowered to manage the ending or mending of her marriage/relationship
...Transformed into a powerful role model for her family and friends
We are the only nonprofit like this anywhere and every day we transform women's lives.
of THE (IN)FIDELITY FACTOR: Points to
Ponder Before You Cheat.
A well-received, five star book written by a woman who's been on both sides of the fence. Elda candidly recounts the important lessons she learned along the way. This is a much needed book for those who have a desire to know, and those in the throes of desire re: (in)fidelity in a committed relationship. It includes invaluable information, statistics, commentary, personal stories and surveys for examination. An honest, easy, concise read that gets to the crux of the matter, with bits of humor thrown in for good measure. Guidelines are offered to help preserve integrity and respect before falling victim to the harmful backlash of infidelity. The purpose is to promote awareness, education and personal accountability.
