This is the Women In The Battle testimony Steve read on the radio today:

Before coming to this workshop I had been working to start the restoration part after my husband’s infidelity. I was having trouble expressing my feelings and concerns to my husband. I will not have any problems with that now. I had been so disconnected for years that it was so refreshing to be open with the women in my group. I was affirmed by Sheri’s teaching. I leave here with a new attitude and a peaceful spirit. I know that I am a “warrior princess” and I can effectively handle whatever comes up with God by my side. I encourage every woman dealing with infidelity to sign up for this workshop immediately. Open your heart and see God move. – Denise

    I am looking for anything that i can help my friend with. She is actually in counseling with a woman who practices EMDR, but she’s only been with her for a few months. My friend has really good days and then she has really bad days. She is suffering from anxiety, which she takes Ativan for, but the other problem that no one seems to be able to help her with is what she calls her “taste-smell issue”. Her counselor tried to find someone who has worked with this before, but cannot find anyone. So I am asking if you have ever dealt with anything like this before. I’ve been listening for a few years now but haven’t heard anything of advice that comes close to how this can be helped.
    thanks so much!!

    Could you address the misdirected anger toward husband on, please? I have so much anger toward my husband and realize it is because of my issues with my mom. She has always been emotionally detached, unprotective, a workaholic, makes excuses, blames others, criticizes… Realized recently that I set her up as an idol all these years, waiting desperately for her to give me some sort of approval/love. Since I finally see that is never going to happen, unless God provides a miracle, I have been trying to move on through EMDR/counseling, reading, and listening to I still have so much anger, anxiety, resentment, distrust, bitterness… Thank you for ALL you do!

    Well M. Tilest, may I suggest you pray to God to help you let go of the anger you have in your heart for your Mother (and others that have hurt you). The change needs to start with you, and yes, it’s time for change you are obviously tired of living the way you’ve been living and want change. Your heart is and has been heavy for a long time, that’s so not a good feeling to have to go through life with a heavy heart. I speak to you personally, trust me, if God did it for me he’ll do it for you but you have to want the change and you’ll have to do some things you haven’t done or would rather not do. Much praying is needed and much trust, start with you first and watch what happens. I was so filled with anger and disgust until I couldn’t even pray. I did get counseling and even then I wouldn’t be honest or let go of things….it’s time to stop, get your life back the adversary is having way too much fun seeing you live like this. Forgive yourself, trust God, let go, and I promise you things will start happening for the betterment of your life and those in it. Blessings to you.
