Joyful Marriages

Our appearance on 100 Huntley Street

In February, we flew to Toronto to appear on this national Canadian TV show.

Our segment was about 20 minutes long and it went by very fast. Ron started to cry when he talked about God's mercy and forgiveness and I started to cry when I talked about my father. But it was not a sad show, we laughed too and talked openly about how awful our marriage was and how good it is now.

We took a side trip to Niagara Falls and it was COLD, but beautiful!

EV Free Fullerton--Couples in Recovery

We often speak to married or engaged couples, most of whom have not had affairs, but this week was different.

On Wednesday, we talked to a group of couples at EV Free Church, who've all had affairs.
The class is taught by Dave Carder, the author of TORN ASUNDER, and he asked us to share our testimony.

These wounded people are just beginning to rebuild their marriages and it was a privilege for us to encourage them. We told them the short version of our story and tried to give them hope for their own futures. Some of them were nodding, some were crying, and one man had his back toward us, with his arms folded, facing the door. I don't think he wanted to hear our message. That's the hard thing about speaking to people: we can't make them listen, we can't make them change. If they don't want their marriage to work, it won't. There has to be an internal decision--a desire--a commitment to stay. Without that, as soon as it gets difficult (and it will) they give up, walk away.

We will continue to pray for them and hope that our story gave them the encouragement they needed. We hope they begin to see the healing that can be theirs --if they choose it.
