- What would cause my adult son to be such a slob, like a tornado hit his home?
- Why would my son not attend his own daughter’s wedding just because his previous wife was there?
- How can I handle my functioning alcoholic husband who is in denial?
These are the Every Man’s Battle Workshop testimonies that were read on the radio today:
I came to this workshop highly skeptical. I was almost angry and felt forced to attend in order to have any chance of going forward with my wife. As the first day went on I found that every man in my group was struggling with the same things I was experiencing. It provided me an opportunity to share like never before. I understand what I have done to my wife, to her trust, to her self-esteem and to her image of me. I now have the tools to work toward improving. I have the network of support to encourage and strengthen me. This weekend has given me hope for the first time in a very long time. – Todd
What I learned this weekend has changed my life in a profound way. Until this weekend I didn’t understand what my addiction had done to the woman I love the most and how it had affected me. My heart was so full of shame, anger and guilt that I was blind to the cycle I had created and had convinced myself that there was no hope. This program saved me from myself. And I could feel the Holy Spirit healing my wounds and the pain I had from them. My heart has been restored. Finally, I can be the man and husband that God created me to be. – Mark G.
