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

Before this workshop I was distracted. I made no time to look back at myself or take care of myself.  This weekend has been a revelation of God’s view of my problems and pain, and the grief He has for my hurt and the promise He has for my continued healing. I am leaving the workshop with the promise of healing and the growth to be empowered to seek relations with other members of the body of Christ. – Hanna
