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

I was angry when I came to EMB, but I didn’t know why. I wrestled with whether I was here because my heart is truly repentant or simply because I got caught. I love the Lord, but I am a proud man. I enjoyed pornography, but when I indulged, the Holy Spirit would convict me. I have tried numerous times on my own to quit, but have not been successful. I realize that if my heart is not truly repentant, EMB and this weekend is just a waste of my time and money. I have decided and I am resolved to be a man of sexual integrity. If my wife stays or goes, if my friends know or don’t know, if my church family thinks I am a hypocrite. I am ready. EMB has given me hope, but more than just the fleeting kind of hope that I have experienced before an emotional high after a fiery sermon or motivational talk. My hope is now based on examples of men I met who are victorious over this struggle and have given me Biblically based practical tools I can use to have lasting success. - Will

This is the Healing Is A Choice Workshop testimony Steve read on the show today:

Before coming to this weekend, my life was isolated, sad, lonely, full of shame and self-anger.   Helpless- I felt I had worked so hard for so long and still was a mess. Felt I would always be broken, no matter what I did or how hard I worked. This weekend has been freeing. It gave me the safe place to finally say – outloud , to other humans -the shame that has kept me held captive. It’s given me new lifetime friends. I leave here with courage to continue on my healing path and new tools to help make the journey. I have a renewed belief that I can be who God intended me to be. I will heal with God’s help. To anyone considering attending this event, I’d say: Come! Don’t let anything or anyone keep you from this healing workshop. - Lori

The last 4 years my husband’s temper, anger, rage, and emotional abuse had taken a toll on our marriage and our children. We’d recently been separated and he moved back home a month ago. This workshop has helped us identify the root problems that were preventing us from moving forward in our journey to find healing and restoration. This workshop experience is worth your time, money, and commitment. The New Life staff is warm, welcoming, and have a heart for restoration ministry. – Rachel

This is the Healing Is A Choice testimony Steve read on the radio today:

Before coming to this weekend I was in a dark place that felt scary, alone, and helpless. I was living in bondage – trapped by sin and shame that felt too big and unforgivable for me to bring to God. I felt small, invisible, and insignificant in the eyes of others. This weekend has been an emotional breakthrough that God can love even me. That he can use ordinary people that are broken and damaged to do great works in his name. It has given me hope when I feel I had none. It has been the toughest, most emotionally exhausting stripped raw experience I have ever had but by far the most freeing. I leave here with a new self image of who I am. Not by “man’s standard“, not by the world’s view, but as who Christ has made me and sees me to be. That with a willing attitude and of hard work I can change my life and open the door for Christ to use me for His glory. - Daminica
