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

Before coming to this workshop, my life felt stuck. I couldn’t get moving forward. Either because I felt justified or hurt. But my life was more “feel sorry” than living.

This weekend has brought such a light!! I have had 8 years of counseling and in less than 3 days I have felt more movement and hope. I am so grateful for everything this workshop has been. I am leaving with so much hope and love, and less baggage. – Kim

This is the Every Man’s Battle testimony that was read on the radio today:

I was skeptical of this workshop when I first came. I fell under the camp of “my wife made me go.” I am so very glad that I did. The fellowship with other men having the same struggles was unbelievable. Understanding the brain and the chemistry of what this does was powerful. Understanding tools and decision making points so powerful. Talking and confessing with other men was so powerful. I truly feel that this could be a turning point for my relationship with my wife and my God. New Life is doing a wonderful work for the kingdom. Thank you! – Chris

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

To be honest coming here I wasn’t sure if I wanted to stay married. I have sinned and been caught before so I know the tough road of rebuilding trust and a relationship. What I lacked before was tools and community to sustain my efforts. I feel EMB has prepared me for that “battle” and now I know that not only can I do this but I MUST do this. I have come to the absolute decision that I do want to stay married. I do want to fight Satan for my wife’s love, my children’s respect, and my redemption. – Jim
