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

  1. Barbara whose daughter is a ‘messenger from God.” Could it be that the daughter is part of a cult? Or in a church that controls through isolation? It sounds like the daughter might be needing excessive validation and is creating this false self-image i.e. ‘messenger from God.’ Sad that she is into ‘familial extortion.’!

  2. Tom reminds me a bit of Archie Bunker… Edith! I didn’t say bi liked aked chicken did I?, Geeez Edith what’s wrong with you? Jill and Steve are trying so hard to show Tom what he is missing. Yes, “they’re both missing it.” -Steve Arterburn
