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

This was the first time in my life that I shared my “secret life” and the first time that I feel that I’m on my way to a “new life.” In the past, I have placed landmines in the pathway of everyone in my life and left them to pick up the pieces. Now, I have partners to help me . It’s not just me against my demons. It’s my “team” against my demons. This would never have happened without EMB. Thank you New Life for the tools that I can use to touch others. – Curtis

    Debbie, it sounds like the man your mother is married has hurt you in some way, I mean it’s enough not to be respected, more so to see your mother being disrespected and her not acknowledging it. It’s her life and if she wants to continue living under such circumstances then so be it, it’s her not you. You have your life and your children to be concerned with. Don’t hate just forgive and trust God, the possibilities are endless and oh so glorious, try him!

    to the last caller – Joe, though you had many affairs during your marriage and your wife is ready to call it quits, don’t give up, I know you’ve hurt her and your children pretty bad but now it’s time for you to make a serious change. I really want to blast you out but who the heck am I to do so. Not sure why it took so many affairs for you to come to your senses but God is a forgiving God, even me he forgave and forgives. If you want to save your marriage do all that is in your power to save it. You sound as if you’re sincere so I pray you make it to the EMB event and in the mean time I will pray for you and your family.
