Deanna Favre says her religious faith and an outward focus are helping her overcome the allegations of improper behavior that have been leveled against her husband, Brett.

Deanna Favre was interviewed Thursday on "Good Morning America" about a book she co-authored with Shane Stanford called "The Cure for the Chronic Life," which is about getting past hard times and patterns of unhealthy behavior.

During the interview, Deanna was asked how she's handling the accusations against Brett Favre, who is being investigated by the NFL for allegedly sending suggestive messages and lewd photos to a woman who worked for the New York Jets.

Deanna Favre says: "I'm handling this through faith."

She did not address whether the allegations against her husband are true or false.

The Vikings QB met with an NFL security official Tuesday regarding allegations that he sent lewd pictures and racy messages to then-Jets employee Jenn Sterger in 2008, when Favre was New York's quarterback.

Speaking on a conference call with reporters in Green Bay ahead of Sunday night's Vikings-Packers game, Favre called the NFL's investigation into his alleged behavior a "league matter." He also declined to answer questions about the situation in his weekly news conference Wednesday with Minnesota media.
