Thoughts from Class Members
One of the many changes in Neil since Hidden Heart is his desire to connect with men and discuss God’s Word. Ironic that I’ve said “Sweet Wife” is time consuming. I’ve laid down myself and concentrated on my husband. Yet, I just submitted my 465-page manuscript to the publisher! I wrote in the dedications: “Thank you to Hidden Heart Ministries for giving our marriage a happy ending.” My epilogue is the Hidden Heart change.
I’ve struggled to let God love me like a loving father, and trust that He does love me even when He knows all my sin. This marriage study is timely for me as I mentioned, in more ways than one. Through it and through a very tender, kind, patient, and gentle love of my husband, I’m not just seeing but experiencing God’s love for me. I understand that we are always going through a learning process of some kind, and I feel God healing so many hurts from the past, one step at a time.
I’ve been very blessed by our study, and know that it has just gotten me started on a new path. T.G.
I praise God for the study! This is the first group of women I’ve had in my home for this study. . .and I look forward to going through the study again in the future! I love that it is for singles AND marrieds!! It has truly been a treasure; I am 46, a single mom of one daughter. Christ has been my husband these past eight years and the study has only enriched my walk with him! I thank and praise God for your hearts and ministry! L.H.
Thanks to Gretchen and Kim, I am enjoying the study. Since I started it, I can feel the differences. The more I go … the more I gain respect for my mother. The way she handles her relationship with my father is a lesson to me. I am very blessed to take this class before I get married. With everyday prayers, I strongly believe that God will help me to be the wife and a mother He wants me to be. My favorite Scriptures in this book are Isaiah 54:4-5 and Ephesians 4:15-16. Thanks to Joan and others for their time and energy to help all of us, especially me, as I am young and naive. God bless you all.
The Cry of the Hidden Heart study fell into my lap at God’s perfect timing. Sometimes in life I tend to crowd my mind with so many different ideas, advice, self pity, sense of entitlement, etc. Being brought back to God’s ordained basic role as a wife in my marriage put so many things into perspective, and so much of the spiritual, emotional and mental struggles became so small when I gave it to God.
