“God helped me learn to lean on Him in the midst of my biggest disappointments and how to sit alone and be okay. He helped me fight battles that are still going on,” TerKeurst said, “not with one great big miraculous intervention, but instead with daily provisions and assurances. And He brought friends both in person and online who were in their own battles.”

In June 2023, Lysa TerKeurst revealed she had a new love interest after several tumultuous years of fighting for her previous marriage. In 2017, TerKeurst announced that after 25 years of marriage, she was getting divorced because her “husband, life partner and father of my children, Art TerKeurst, has been repeatedly unfaithful to me with a woman he met online.” 

However, a year later, the couple was still together. In December 2018, the two renewed their vows, celebrating the restoration of their union.  “A million prayers. A miracle answer. A marriage restored,” TerKeurst wrote at the time.

Sadly, three years later on Jan. 1, 2022, TerKeurst revealed that she was ending her marriage for good as her husband had continued to be unfaithful. She said, “I’ve had to learn the hard way there’s a big difference between mistakes (which we all make) and chosen patterns of behavior that dishonor God and the biblical covenant of marriage.”

One year later, the author and ministry leader met Chaz Adams. “As the pages kept turning last year, we knew what we’d found in each other was love. A beautiful love that requires work like love always does,” TerKeurst said in her marriage announcement. “But a togetherness that is safe, honest, fun, funny and surrendered to the sacred way God tells us to love and care for each other. We got engaged last fall, which I decided to hold private so I could tell as many people as possible face to face.”

TerKeurst hinted at her new relationship in May of last year and revealed more in June, saying, “The hard parts of our story aren’t the end of our story… in time, He wrote a story that was the sweetest surprise.”
