Here is the Women in the Battle workshop testimony that was read on the radio today:

Before attending Women in the Battle, I felt like I was in a slow downward spiral to my death. I felt like I was dying from the inside out. This weekend has been the kick start to me saying goodbye to the old me, my old marriage, and dreams. I can now say hello to a new life with hope and power to ask what I need now and that is ok! This weekend saved my life (physically, emotionally, and spiritually.) – Meredith

This is the Marriage Solution Workshop testimony that was read on the radio today:

Prior to this weekend I felt very disconnected from my husband and even doubted whether he still loved or even like me. Our communication often led to arguments that escalated to fights filled with criticism, barbs, defensiveness, and familiar low blows that only we knew how to throw. Even when we were civil to each other, it felt more like a business partnership. This workshop has been incredible. I was able to realize how the differences in our personalities, how we were raised, and our make-up has led to distinctive cycles of misunderstanding, defensiveness, and has ruptured our relationship. Most importantly, I have learned how to let go of myself and see my husband with new eyes. I am leaving this weekend with the knowledge that my husband not only loves me but values, understands, and sees me. We now have a better understanding of what causes us to respond to conflict the way we do, but we are now armed with the tools to not fall into those same pitfalls. – Ruth

This is the Every Man’s Battle testimony Steve read on the radio today:

This has been the best Christian program that’s ever been presented to me.  I didn’t realize that I was a sex addict and didn’t see that I was harming myself, family, and future because of this problem.  I’ve read Every Man’s Battle but still didn’t seem to get victory over this sin.  I’m happy to say I’ve been delivered, healed, and set free.  I have a game plan and support with connection with brothers in Christ who have overcome and are working on a daily basis to stay sexually pure.  I believe God put me here to show me how I can forever stay set free and delivered.  I want to help men come clean and free from this horrible trap that Satan has webbed us into.  – George
