I am the wife of a fallen pastor who was removed from his church for breaking the seventh commandment… with me.
My name is Allison Carroll and I am a sinner. I am an adulterer. I am a woman who slept with a man who was not only my pastor but my best friend’s husband. I am a sinner, an adulterer and a terrible friend but thankfully, despite it all, I am also forgiven. That’s right. I am forgiven. Just like every other child of God. We are all born sinners. We all commit sin. And we all can be forgiven if our hearts are right with God.
I am probably a lot like you. If not you, then maybe like your wife or your mother. Your daughter or granddaughter. Someone that you know very well. I am a lot of things, good and bad. But the most important thing I am is a believer in Christ Jesus; He loved me more than He loved Himself. He died for me.
Outside of my blog I am a full time Medical Laboratory Technologist. I am a wife to Ray Carroll, Author of “Fallen Pastor, Finding Restoration in a Broken World“. I am also a full time mom to my daughter Leslie and a step-mom to Abigail and Katie.
I am telling my story to hopefully help anyone who has found themselves either in the same situation so that I can lend them support and they can see they are not alone OR to those who may be heading to the place where I have been. I hope to paint a clear picture of the damage that their potential sin might do. And I hope to deter them from going there at all.
Thank you for visiting my page and my blog. It is through God’s forgiveness, grace and mercy that I am able to share with you. If you are someone in need of someone to listen, I am here. If you know someone who needs some support, I am here.
My husband also has a ministry for fallen men and he would be happy to help if you need to talk to him. We both network with several other people and there is a good chance we can find just the right help for you.
