Why Should I Write My Testimony

Words have the power to change lives.  With a single word we have the power to change the lives of those around us, do more for good, and completely alter the course of human events.

I then went on to tell her every negative thing I could share while choosing to avoid anything that would help her or give her encouragement. Yes, I gave freely, but I gave advice that stemmed from my hurt and pain, not from experience and love. I had no desire to bless a marriage tha
