This is the Healing is a Choice Workshop testimony that Steve read on the radio today:

Before this weekend, I was lost in my shame from being raped! My life spiraled downhill for over 15 years. I lived a life of many bad choices, which included 2 abortions, sleeping with many men, and alcohol abuse. I recently got married to the most patient and loving man, but because of my past, I have been emotionally abusing him. This weekend has made me realize my inappropriate behavior towards my husband. I realize now that God loves me and he has forgiven me. I don’t have to be afraid anymore. I don’t have to carry this burden alone. I can give it to God and enjoy His peace. I now know the steps I need to take to forgive. I know now that I want to trust again. To anyone considering this workshop, I would say do whatever it takes to get here! Your life will change in the grace of God. – Deanna

    Today’s conversation with the lady who discussed her husband’s under employment issue was truly an answer to prayer. I wanted to call in as I have been struggling with the same issue very most of my marriage. Once she started talking and I could tell it was my same issue, I about fell over. It was as though I placed that call. So many of the issues were similar. I’ve been afraid to confront and when I do he gets angry, so I would just drop it and try to cope with my frustration and disappointment.
