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

Before coming to this workshop, I just felt empty. I wouldn’t talk about my sexual abuse, and I felt alone and that no one understood. This weekend has connected me with other women who have been through similar things. I now feel like I am not alone and I want to continue healing not only for me, but for them as well. I am leaving Healing is a Choice with tools to continue healing and goals for what I want for my life. I feel hopeful that I can give God all of me and that no matter how broken I have been God can use me. I would tell anyone to definitely come to this workshop. The small groups really help you to connect with people and to feel secure and hopeful for what God has planned for your life. – Carrie

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

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

Before coming to this weekend I needed to understand the grief from my father’s death 13 years ago. I needed God’s direction on whether I should reconcile with my alcoholic ex-husband of 27 years marriage, and guilt for my unfaithfulness towards end of marriage.  This weekend has been freeing from my guilt of leaving my marriage, and helping me forgive my husband but knowing what to require for reconciliation. I am leaving this workshop feeling God’s forgiveness anew, and with a fresh look and attitude at what has happened in my life and what to look forward to. Colleen
