LAM Testimony: “This workshop helped us to rely on God again”

I was definitely scared and nervous to come to LAM. On day one before I even walked through the doors, I heard something discouraging in my mind saying, “You take risks and chances in things that don’t matter but you won’t take those same risks and chances where it matters most. You are wasting time here.” I knew that was a spirit of doubt and discouragement, so I rebuked it and walked through those doors ready to invest into our marriage because it does matter! I loved our group and the ministry and bonding time we got to have. It’s built what is now long-lasting friendships with them moving forward. Holy Spirit has put me in a place to be comfortable talking about things with my spouse and being open without fear or regret and learning valuable tools for me as a husband to truly invest in the health of our marriage. Thank you, Barry and Lori, for pouring into every couple at LAM! We love you! -A LAM Husband 

 

We walked in finally admitting that we needed help. It had been a difficult time going on the 3rd year of marriage and just becoming youth pastors. I was critical towards my husband and even skeptical with little feelings of love towards him. We would argue and not be productive in taking care of our responsibilities. It was hard for him to be authentic because he didn’t like the way I responded. I was not caring towards him and often shut him down rather than building his confidence. This workshop helped me to rely on God again rather than my own solutions that usually are out of survival mechanisms I had been practicing too long. I experienced freedom from many strongholds of control, self-reliance, lies that I was a burden or too much for others to handle, and even got healed from sexual abuse where I experienced a fire sensation that burned it away! I am so much lighter from everything I have given up to God and in return have reactivated my gifts and renewed my mind so that I can interact with my husband in truth and love. I no longer have the pain or setbacks of my past and can freely give and receive. -A LAM Wife
