And then, through a cracked door, God intervened and their marriages were restored. They were each given a glimmer of hope that the marriage could be saved. They dared to think differently about their husbands and their marriage. Over time, with attention and intentionality things began to change. What struck me is that for both of these gals, it was when they began to change their mind about giving up. The challenges that took them to the brink of divorce had not magically disappeared but they decided to press on. Over time the feelings of love returned and today both marriages are intact. They are working hard and fighting for their marriages.
If our Hope Filled Marriage Workshops can minimally give some hope to not give up, then we have succeeded.
