Over a decade ago, I attended my first Weigh Down class and my life has never been the same since - it has been permanently changed! My life before was waking up every day in complete anxiety, extreme control and planning every hour of the day, exercising for at least 2-3 hours of the day, eating very little food and of course only fat-free, and then ending the day in complete anxiety again. So of course this greatly affected my marriage while I was physically wasting away and mentally becoming severely depressed.
However, God led me to a Weigh Down class and I experienced for the first time in my life a peaceful mind and a true relationship with God. I found what I had been looking for all my life - a true love for God and answered prayers. Gwen Shamblin's teaching on obedience was revolutionary - even as a Registered Nurse, I had never heard of these basic truths of hunger and fullness and keeping a pure heart and mind. Since that class, I have continued to change and I am happier every year! I have a completely blessed marriage, have since had two children, all the while maintained the same weight over many years outside of pregnancy. I have complete peace from the moment I wake up until the time I go to sleep. I cannot believe that I get to live out all the commands of the Bible and even the ones that never made sense before! I did grow up on a church pew, jumped from one Bible study to the next, always looking for some kind of answer.
It was not until I found Remnant Fellowship, that I found the answer the TRUTH! I heard teaching on how to lay down sin and live a pure life for God. I have found a fellowship of true believers that are all new creations and live out a genuine, true love for God Almighty – every day! There are no fakes! Leaders that truly have a heart for the will of the Father with no hidden sins! Amazing! I have spent most of my life running after anything to make me feel good and now I have found it - God Almighty and doing His will. God has completely transformed my life and I know this is a permanent change. I praise Him for the Weigh Down ministry, the Remnant Fellowship Church, Gwen Shamblin and all the Leaders who daily serve God's church. There is nothing of this world that could replace the peace with God in my heart and mind that I now have every day!
