A Crisis and A Response

(Phone message received from a troubled woman)

“I was referred to the Marriage Resource Center by a friend. Please, please . . . I need help. My marriage is in crisis!  I really don’t know what to do. My husband has been unfaithful . . . I just found out. I am reeling. My world feels like it’s falling apart. We have one child, 5 years old. My husband is willing to go to counseling . Please, we need help ASAP!”

(Response from their mentor couple):

We met with this couple this morning and they have experienced an immense healing already. The have forgiven each other, setup the proper boundaries for their future, changed their priorities from Work/Child/Marriage to Marriage/Child/Work and even talked to us about their faith and where they should go to church. They decided to attend a church this Sunday, which is just down the street from their home, and then attend with us the next Sunday. Praise God !!
