This is the Marriage Solution Workshop testimony that was read on the radio today:

Prior to this weekend I felt very disconnected from my husband and even doubted whether he still loved or even like me. Our communication often led to arguments that escalated to fights filled with criticism, barbs, defensiveness, and familiar low blows that only we knew how to throw. Even when we were civil to each other, it felt more like a business partnership. This workshop has been incredible. I was able to realize how the differences in our personalities, how we were raised, and our make-up has led to distinctive cycles of misunderstanding, defensiveness, and has ruptured our relationship. Most importantly, I have learned how to let go of myself and see my husband with new eyes. I am leaving this weekend with the knowledge that my husband not only loves me but values, understands, and sees me. We now have a better understanding of what causes us to respond to conflict the way we do, but we are now armed with the tools to not fall into those same pitfalls. – Ruth

Here is the Lose it for Life testimony read by Steve on the radio:

My life before coming to LIFL was dark, filled with no hope. As a single mom, I work long hours so there has been no time for me. I have been completely isolated. This was just how it was. I was only just existing. This weekend has been full. I have learned so much. I have connected with a group of wonderful supportive women. I now feel like I have safe people in my life with whom I want to stay connected. I am leaving the weekend with hope. I can do all things with Christ. Losing weight and or re-claiming some of my health is not impossible and I am not alone. I would encourage anyone considering this event to go. The tools and the connections in this weekend can change your life if you let it! – Sarah
