We want to thank Marcos and Amarillis Mercado for the opportunity to be a part of the Marriage Beyond the Vows Relationship Workshop event this past Saturday (December 3rd 2016)! It was a powerful time as Pam and I shared our personal experiences (good and bad) along with Ted Winsley and Dawn Winsley, pastors of the Family Church in New Jersey. It was also an honor to be a part of this free event, given by PRAISE 107.9 and the Marriage Beyond the Vows radio show! It consisted of an open panel discussion that highlighted emotional honesty, humility and vulnerability as the key to healthy marriages. As questions came from the audience it was evident that couples of all ages are looking for healing and growth in both their faith and in their relationships. It’s encouraging to know that God uses both our strengths and our weaknesses to heal and relate to others!
