These are the Every Man’s Battle Workshop testimonies that were read on the radio today:

I came to this workshop highly skeptical. I was almost angry and felt forced to attend in order to have any chance of going forward with my wife. As the first day went on I found that every man in my group was struggling with the same things I was experiencing. It provided me an opportunity to share like never before. I understand what I have done to my wife, to her trust, to her self-esteem and to her image of me. I now have the tools to work toward improving. I have the network of support to encourage and strengthen me. This weekend has given me hope for the first time in a very long time. – Todd

What I learned this weekend has changed my life in a profound way. Until this weekend I didn’t understand what my addiction had done to the woman I love the most and how it had affected me. My heart was so full of shame, anger and guilt that I was blind to the cycle I had created and had convinced myself that there was no hope. This program saved me from myself. And I could feel the Holy Spirit healing my wounds and the pain I had from them. My heart has been restored. Finally, I can be the man and husband that God created me to be. – Mark G.

This is the Every Man’s Battle Workshop testimony Steve read on the radio today –

The change that I was able to see on the faces of several men from our first lunch when some said nothing, to the openness they came to find in small group, was heartwarming. There were men from all walks and parts of the country, hurting men, scared and hopeful men. The ability to support those in my group was also empowering to me. To develop new “close” friends in the battle was something truly needed, and I believe my relationships will survive as I attended this workshop as reinforcement to please my new bride. We have been working on issues for the last 8 months and I wanted to do my part to help her heal, and to keep me sober and pure for her. This experience will allow me to do just that. I thank the men of EMB for their sincere and focused mission to help heal so much brokenness and pain. I thank my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ that I was able to have this experience. For without God’s grace and Jesus, I am nothing.  – Terry

This is the Women in the Battle Workshop testimony Steve read on the radio today –

My life has been a nightmare for the past 4 to 5 years. I was in despair and lonely, and afraid. I felt as though the only safe place was away from my husband and home, and taking away my kids to safety. I was starting to breakdown physically. This WITB weekend has been so enriching in support, compassion, and knowledge and full of the Holy Spirit. I am leaving the weekend with knowledge about the problem, tools in hand for a plan of action, and with assurance that God loves me and will see me through this. This weekend has been the best thing I could do for my healing, serenity, and peace of mind! – Judy

This is the Women In the Battle testimony Steve read on the radio today –

Since learning about my husband’s sexual integrity issues 3 months ago, I have experienced depression, grief, and tremendous loss. The pain has been overwhelming. This weekend has been exhausting, both physically and emotionally. However, what I have experienced was worth it. I have learned about the impact of betrayal and its trauma experience. I have met some beautiful, awesome women with whom I have been able to be vulnerable, share my story, learn from, and cry with. This weekend has been empowering. I am leaving this weekend with hope. Hope for my healing and for the restoration of my marriage. I also leave with tools and a plan to continue on a path of recovery. I have new resources to aid in this journey and new support from women with whom I share a bond because of our spouses’ sexual  betrayal. I would tell any woman who has been sexually betrayed, don’t hesitate, attend WITB. Invest in yourself, your healing. You won’t leave the same. – Melinda
