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

Before this weekend, I had hit a wall and did not know why I was stuck in chronic depression, anxiety, and outbursts of anger.   I was tired of trying without getting anywhere. I wanted to have something big come into my life to help me make big changes for the better. This weekend has been “something Big” to get me unstuck from a long pattern of isolation and unhealthy thinking. It has been a plunge into both truth and emotional safety to figure out and receive God’s grace and love, which changes everything. I leave here with decision and clarity, hope and God’s acceptance, and a plan for the next choices I will make that are life-giving.  – Emily

    To The Grandmother that called in regarding your grandson being choked by his mother, 1st of all I would like to say I’m so sorry…. 2nd of all I can speak from experience, my big sister began choking me from when I turned around 8 I believe… before then she adored me… Something triggered her & she couldn’t stand me anymore & it made her literally hate me… she truly wanted me dead… I can tell you if it weren’t for my little sister in the room screaming for help I would be dead. I can’t tell you how many times I got choked as a child. So for you to stand up for your grandson, is the best thing you can do for Him!!!! I just want to say THANK YOU FOR CALLING IN FOR HIM AND BEING HIS ADVOCATE… I FINALLY DID THAT FOR MY NIECE FOR MY NIECE ABOUT 3 YRS AGO & GOT her in a safe home that is stable for the 1st time in her life & she is a Jr. in High School now 🙂 Thank The Lord…
    There Truly is hope out there for these children if WE STAND UP AND ARE ADVOCATES FOR KIDS THAT DON’T HAVE VOICES

    Poor Ralph. He sounds like such a nice guy. I got to thinking that it has been said that the STD (genital herpes) can live in someone for years and not show up. So I’m wondering if this STD was possibly already there ? Just a thought. Maybe I’m being naïve, but Is this possible?

    Not forgiving yourself or someone that hurt you keeps you stuck in an ugly dark place in life. Letting go, forgiving, and trusting God will lighten up your darkness and allow you to forgive and move on. Ralph, you choose to stay at stuck and that’s causing issues in your marriage and in your future. I pray you find it in your heart to forgive and let go of what happened in the past. You obviously love your wife so consider the above, as God to help you along the way and watch things turn around for the betterment. I’m just saying and suggesting. Blessings to you both.
