She started to pray and asked Lord to help her find the right way out of such a hard situation. And after some time Anne realized that by inviting God into the marriage you can literally save and preserve the love that you have:

If you feel trapped in a marriage where the love has run out, praise God! There is hope for you just as there was hope for me. The first step in starting over is to invite Jesus into your marriage.

Danny Lotz passed away in 2015 after he was found unresponsive in their backyard swimming pool and Anne is still learning to forgive herself. Anne wrote on her official website:

If I kept blaming myself and wallowing in the guilt, I knew I would spiral down into bitterness and self-hatred.  I could actually feel the downward pull into that black hole from the moment I found Danny.

And again, God was the one who saved her:

My journey to forgive myself began with a simple prayer. God, I am so sorry.  Danny’s death is my fault. I have failed to obey Your calling to care for him. I’m so sorry.   For two days, that’s as far as I got on my journey. God, I am so sorry.  God, I am so sorry.

At some moment, Anne Graham Lotz felt trapped in her marriage, but God helped her to save the family and to preserve love.
