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

My life before coming to this weekend felt hopeless, like a roller coaster ride, depending on how my husband was doing. I was very insecure. This weekend has been healing and directing for me and it has given me the knowledge and belief that I am worthy of my husband’s love. I would tell any woman considering coming to WITB to come for yourself, regardless of the choices your husband is making. You will find strength to begin healing. – Karen

    Thank you all for the words. This Howard i had breakfast with my wife today and she said the Lord give her peace with a divorce in the marriage. I took it and said ok. But we are still coming to the marriage conference. I got home and cried till I couldn’t breathe but the Lord is able.

    Bless your heart Howard, please go to the conference with an open heart and open hope that through God all things are possible, not sure what happened in your marriage for it to come to a divorce and it really doesn’t matter, what matters is that you want your wife and your marriage so again, keep trusting God, there’s a reason for her going to this conference with you. I’ll be praying for you. And yes, GOD is able, ready, and willing!

    Dear Kenyatta, you are confused about what rejection really means. You are not being rejected you are just not accepting any foolishness or disrespect which is a good thing. These men that you have are having these issues with are not good for you. I mean don’t give up on men just be very careful and first and foremost be sure of yourself before getting in to these relationships with these (kind of) men. Seek counseling for yourself, maybe there’s closure that you need in your life before trying another relationship, find a close female friend or female group either at your church or support group in your community. You are deserving of good things and God has greater things in store for you but get yourself together and look deep within your heart and be honest with yourself and the rest won’t be so complicated. Blessings to you.

    Bad advice to woman with overweight coworker in this day and age. Discussing that or physically touching her anywhere buy shoulder would violate what my company has as a harassment policy and could land you in trouble. We are actually required to do quiz online for this policy and answer questions at end to pass.
