Oct. 21, 2010— -- Brett Favre's wife, Deanna Favre, spoke out today about her superstar husband's alleged extra-marital scandal, saying her faith will see her through.

"I'm a woman of faith," Deanna Favre told "Good Morning America" today. "Faith has gotten me through many difficult struggles. It will get me through this one."

Brett Favre, quarterback for the Minnesota Vikings, has not denied allegations that he sent sexually suggestive messages and pictures to a woman who worked for the New York Jets in 2008. Favre met with NFL Vice President for Security Milt Ahlerich on Tuesday but has declined to answer media questions about the meeting.

"That's a league issue," he told reporters Wednesday. "That I just have to leave at that."

Deanna Favre agreed to an interview with "GMA" before the allegations surfaced, but said she did not cancel because it's a central theme of her new book "The Cure for the Chronic Life" to look to not focus on yourself.

"Outward focus, not inward," she said.

Deanna Favre offered advice from the book to those facing personal challenges, perhaps appropriate to her own situation.

"You have to not let this struggle define you. You have to define your struggle and use it in a good way," she said. "You can turn this into success in some way, shape or form."
