This is the Healing Is A Choice Workshop testimony Steve read on the show today:

Before coming to this weekend, my life was isolated, sad, lonely, full of shame and self-anger.   Helpless- I felt I had worked so hard for so long and still was a mess. Felt I would always be broken, no matter what I did or how hard I worked. This weekend has been freeing. It gave me the safe place to finally say – outloud , to other humans -the shame that has kept me held captive. It’s given me new lifetime friends. I leave here with courage to continue on my healing path and new tools to help make the journey. I have a renewed belief that I can be who God intended me to be. I will heal with God’s help. To anyone considering attending this event, I’d say: Come! Don’t let anything or anyone keep you from this healing workshop. – Lori

    I wish someone could enlighten me. The 2nd caller, Carol, was advised to have other relationships, etc. Her need to have her husband as a companion was met with solutions that ‘she’ needs to do, (she should have women friends, so she doesn’t rely on him for her needs) I understand this, however, why is the word always ‘it is not good for man to be alone?’ Does this mean women should be ok with it? Women have learned to grow and live alone, but in the superficial world, men are not seen as strong if they are alone. They are raised to think if they are ‘men’ they will always have a woman (or many) there at all times. I don’t see this a strength, but weakness. Because of history and corrupt traditional values, it seems men are encouraged to find a woman to be with when things aren’t ‘going ‘his way’ while women are encouraged to find female friends and deal with it. Men from other countries still have this chauvinistic belief, that women have to be under their control.
    Is the constant conflict because of the original sin? I’m single and thank God I don’t need a man financially or otherwise. I also thank God I have no kids, and chose to drive a truck and make enough money to not be controlled by a man. What is wrong when men cannot choose to learn and grow spiritually and appreciate God, instead of thinking about sex all the time? Is media and upbringing to blame? Most secular people do not value the Bible and Christianity, as if it’s ‘too old and outdated to have any merit today.’ What can we do about this? And the media??? Im soooo sick of media, porn, Carls Ju commercials, and people doing anything for monetary gain. People are shooting each other on the highways, and I can understand their anger!
