Here is the Women in the Battle workshop testimony Steve read on the radio today:

Prior to this weekend, my husband and I could never resolve issues because hurt, frustration, and disappointment were always chasing us around. This weekend has been life changing. The new techniques and understanding of each other’s baggage has lifted the scales from my eyes so that I can see my husband as the man God intended. Anyone considering attending the New Life Marriage Weekend should sign up now! Beg, borrow or steal to get there, but go! – Kirsten

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

Honestly, it is not an enjoyable workshop, not fun, not easy, but so very needed and above anything I’ve ever experienced in my life next to salvation. EMB is very informative and gets to the root of what Satan uses to keep men in bondage. EMB is God sent! God Bless you guys who have given themselves selflessly to this ministry to help men be real men. – James

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

This weekend I have realized that this problem is NOT my wife’s fault! I subconsciously have been blaming her for my acting out, thinking “If she would only respect me, or love me just as I am, I wouldn’t have to do pornography to fill the void.” This weekend I have learned the value and importance of being involved in a men’s group, and that there is strength in a group. I have also realized that Jesus’ blood covered my sins, EVERYTHING that I have done. Nothing I have done is too terrible or too big not to be covered by Jesus’ blood. Now I can leave it to Him and I don’t have to just try harder. I can trust that God will be on this journey with me. Thank you New Life. – Wayne

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

I have given up hating my dad this weekend and have given that hatred to God. I can’t handle it, but my Savior can. My father molested my two daughters when they were very small children for several years. Thank God for my supportive wife and pastor or I would be in jail for murder. I also gave up my hatred for my son-in-law that beat my daughter and grandchildren. I have asked God to give me the ability to see whatever is good in my son-in-law. I’m grateful to finally get rid of the hatred. It was hurting me and no one else. I’ll keep my little stone with me to keep Satan off my back and to prevent him from causing me to return to my painful hateful state. I gave praise to my God for He supplies all my needs in Christ Jesus, “therefore I pray that He will increase and I will decrease”. Thank you New Life Ministries for providing the guidance I needed to step out in faith. – Jim

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

Our marriage was stuck in repeating cycles of chaos, hurt, frustration and injury. The downward spiral of blame and wondering why all the help and attempts of repair weren’t working was pushing us toward divorce as the easiest and only repair. This New Life Marriage Weekend has been an answer to prayer! It has been truth and love in candid form. It has brought about a perspective change to each of us and given us tangible tools to see each other differently. This workshop has given us understanding as to why we do what we do and how to shift towards love and healing. I am leaving with a feeling of freedom, renewed hope, and an awareness of being washed in grace for myself and my spouse. – Christy

Here is the Women in the Battle workshop testimony Steve read on the radio today:

Before coming to WITB, I was full of fear and anxiety about my situation and my future. I felt really unworthy and lost. I would have moments of empowerment, but the anger, sadness, and terror would resurface and take me out. This workshop has been such an essential part of my healing. I no longer feel isolated and ashamed. I feel empowered again as a woman. If my husband stays in recovery and we stay married, great. But if he doesn’t choose to stay in recovery, I know that I will be okay. I am a winner either way. Leaving WITB I have a stronger relationship in Christ and a fundamental belief that I am worthy. – Carole
