In ‘The Women of Duck Dynasty’ Lisa Robertson who is married to the eldest son Alan wrote very honestly of being molested repeatedly by a relative when she was a child and then having an affair while married which led to her husband asking her to leave the family home. Amazingly her mother-in-law Miss Kay holds no grudges and forgave her.
How did you forgive her?
-I felt that Lisa had a good heart. She had a lot of problems growing up that no one knew about. She just let the devil take control and made bad choices. I knew she was a good person under that. When she changed and followed the Lord it was easy to forgive her.
Nobody knows this but one morning after she first revealed the affair Alan came to our house and we woke up to him at the foot of our bed sobbing, just crying. We woke up to that of course it just broke our hearts. It really did. It was like I was stabbed by a knife and yet we knew if Phil could change she could change.
For a long time the trust was harder to recapture. But both (Phil and Lisa) of them proved they have really changed.
