We celebrated our fiftieth wedding anniversary July 2013, and it is a joyous celebration because of Weigh Down Ministries and Remnant Fellowship Church.
Before coming to this message, we had problems with anger, disrespect, and strained communication. Vernon had a problem with anger, and Phyllis was not under his authority. We consulted with many pastors and Christian counselors, and they had no answers for us and, in fact, expected that divorce might just be what we would have to do. We even separated for a short time.
It was in 1997 that Phyllis heard about a new class in town that was “changing people’s lives,” and that was the beginning of the change in our lives. We both got involved with this new study, called Weigh Down Workshop, and we began to learn how to change our old habits and learn how to love and respect each other.
Now things are so different. There is now peace in our home, and we praise God for answers to having a peaceful marriage after many years of seeking.
