Many people experience trauma or pain and keep it to themselves, letting it become a secret that holds them captive. They live with pain, blame, and shame, unsure of what to do or how to break free. The secrets grow, causing people to become increasingly silent while they hope and pray for better days, struggling to believe they will ever come. Today our guest will join us for an honest, vulnerable, and courageous narrative about nearly losing everything, breaking the silence of secrets, and finding purpose in pain. This founder of the international franchise Auntie Anne’s pretzels, will share her journey through the loss of a child, sexual abuse, and the resulting trauma that haunted her for years, reminding us that we are not alone in our pain.
It's a scene too often played out in current American culture: One spouse offers the other these five little words, now considered a legitimate exit line from what was supposed to be a lifelong commitment. Discarding popular advice to use romance and sweetness to draw a wandering spouse back into the marriage, Dr. David Clarke lays out an action plan based on Matthew 18. It turns the tables on the divorce-minded spouse and guides the injured spouse from becoming mired in devastation to calling the shots--leaving the fate of the marriage in the hands of the person still committed. Join us to learn how to save your marriage.
