Haggard Revelations: Wife Chose to Love

Ted Haggard's wife gives her side of the story about the evangelical leader who consorted with a male prostitute.

Says Gayle Haggard:

"My heart broke in that instant. I knew the importance of physical touch ... And I knew the damage rejection could cause. Broken people need to be touched, and by reaching out, Ted was pleading for my help. I wanted to help him; I didn’t want to reject him — but what was I supposed to do with the anger, revulsion and pain that were warring in my heart? I had coached other women through this. Now it was my turn .... And so that night I began my journey of choosing ... Choosing to love.”
