Here is the Women in the Battle workshop testimony Steve read on the radio today:

Before coming to WITB, I was full of fear and anxiety about my situation and my future. I felt really unworthy and lost. I would have moments of empowerment, but the anger, sadness, and terror would resurface and take me out. This workshop has been such an essential part of my healing. I no longer feel isolated and ashamed. I feel empowered again as a woman. If my husband stays in recovery and we stay married, great. But if he doesn’t choose to stay in recovery, I know that I will be okay. I am a winner either way. Leaving WITB I have a stronger relationship in Christ and a fundamental belief that I am worthy. – Carole

    You are so afraid of your husband until he has taken full advantage of that and he is using it to his full benefit. It’s no wonder he treats you like a little kid, you sound like one, you really do, not being judgmental but you sound like you were hiding behind a wall peeking as you talked. Living in fear for as long as you have must have you thinking there’s no other way, well I’m here to tell you (with the love of God), there is a way, a better way, so what it’s been 30 years you can stop NOW if you want. You really have to want to change to make change work, more so trusting God in the process assures that better days are ahead but again, it’s up to you. I allowed my standards and boundaries to be stepped all over by my ex, this man treated me like pure rejected trash, he would call me out of my name, he would talk down to me so low, the verbal abuse was as if it were physical abuse, that’ s how it felt. I know that was not a life I wanted to continue living, not like that. I’m a much better person because I trusted God to come in and do the things I could not, it wasn’t easy but I had to humble myself. Please seek counseling, you are still 13 and you have not grown and your husband is taking full and I do mean full advantage of the situation. It’s not too late for you to make that bold move. It’s all up to you. You got a prayer warrior here so I’ll do my part, you do yours. Blessings.
