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

When I went to the Healing is a Choice workshop, I was in a lot of pain due to a divorce.   I had done all I knew to do, and didn’t know what else to do to heal from the pain. The Healing is a Choice weekend put me on a path of healing. It started off by offering empathy for the pain I was in, and then gave me guidance where to go from there. The workshop was very valuable to me. I received what I went for, and have appreciated it ever since!

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

Before this weekend, I had hit a wall and did not know why I was stuck in chronic depression, anxiety, and outbursts of anger.   I was tired of trying without getting anywhere. I wanted to have something big come into my life to help me make big changes for the better. This weekend has been “something Big” to get me unstuck from a long pattern of isolation and unhealthy thinking. It has been a plunge into both truth and emotional safety to figure out and receive God’s grace and love, which changes everything. I leave here with decision and clarity, hope and God’s acceptance, and a plan for the next choices I will make that are life-giving.  – Emily

I was desperate to change our 33 year old marriage from mostly friendly co-habitation to meaningful connection and safety. This workshop has been a turning point filled with the potential of having a marriage that is open, honest and satisfying. I am leaving the weekend with hope for the first time in decades that I can have the kind of marriage that I would want for my adult children.  – Dawn

This is the Marriage Solution Workshop testimony Steve read on the radio today –

Before coming to the New Life marriage weekend, I felt I had to worry, fix, and obsess about the future of my marriage. I wanted to come here and fix what has been broken. I have learned this weekend that this may not be fixed, but we can relate and learn about each other enough to slowly rebuild trust and to have compassion for one another. I am leaving the weekend with compassion for the “little boy”inside of my husband and with tools for effective communication. Come to this workshop if you want to truly learn and know your spouse and yourself on a different level – an intimate level.  – Mallory
