TERRY: THEY CAN BE KNOWN AS
MONSTER OF THE FAMILY.


I HAVE NEVER THOUGHT AS A
MONSTER.


TERRY: OR THEY CAN HELP HOLD
THE FAMILY TOGETHER.


I HAVE TO TRUST AND BELIEVE
THIS IS THE PERSON GOD PICKED


OUT FOR THEM.
TERRY: HOW TO BALANCE IN-LAW


RELATIONSHIPS ON TODAY'S "700
CLUB INTERACTIVE."


GORDAN: ON "700 CLUB
INTERACTIVE," WATCH WHAT GOD IS


DOING IN THE WORLD TODAY.
TERRY: HI EVERYBODY, WELCOME


TO THE SHOW.
THANKS FOR SPENDING YOUR MORN


WITH US.
GORDAN IS OUT TODAY, JOINING US


IS DAVID.
THANK YOU, TERRY.


TERRY: TODAY WE ARE GOING TO
TALK ABOUT A SUBJECT WE BOTH


KNOW SOMETHING ABOUT, FOR BETTER
FOR WORSE.


THAT IS A PROMISE SPOKEN BY MANY
COUPLES ON THEIR WEDDING DAY.


THE WORST COMES IN THE FORM OF
IN-LAWS.


FROM DORA ON BEWITCHED TO
EVERYBODY LOVES RAYMOND.


FOR THE FAMILY YOU ARE ABOUT TO
MEET IT IS THE IN-LAWS THAT HELP


HOLD THE FAMILY TOGETHER.
TAKE A LOOK.


I HAVE NEVER THOUGHT ABOUT
HER AS A MONSTER IN LAW.


I SPEND A LOT OF TIME ON THIS
PORCH PRAYING ABOUT THEIR


SPOUSES.
WHO AM I TO BE MAD AT THEIR


CHOICES?
I HAVE TO TRUST AND BELIEVE THIS


IS THE PERSON GOD PICKED OUT FOR
THEM.


IF YOU SET THE BAR SO HIGH,
SOMEONE IS GOING TO MEET IT.


IT IS NOT THAT WE SET THE BAR SO
LOW, I'LL GET IN TROUBLE.


IT IS ALMOST A CULTURAL NORM,
PEOPLE THINK I TEND TO THINK I


AM GETTING MARRIED AND HAVE
IN-LAWS I AM NOT GOING TO LIKE


THEM.
IT IS NOT SUPPOSED TO BE LIKE


THAT.
I WAS TELLING THIS GUY AT WORK


WE ARE GOING ON VACATION.
HE SAID I WOULD KILL MY IN-LAWS.


I WAS EXCITED.
HE COULD SEE THAT.


IT WAS SOMETHING HE DIDN'T
UNDERSTAND.


I LIKE IT.
FEELINGS MAKE IT HURT, WHEN YOU


KNOW YOU ARE COMING WITH LOVE,
THAT IS WHAT SHOWS IN THE END.


I HAVE SEEN OTHER FAMILIES,
10-15 YEARS GOES BY, SOMEBODY IS


STILL MAD AT UNCLE BOB.
WE FORGIVE YOU, IT IS DONE.


WE ARE NOT BRINGING IT BACK UP.
I HAVE HAD BITTERNESS AND


ANGER TOWARDS FAMILY MEMBERS IN
THE PAST.


I HAVE HAD TO SAY GOD I DON'T
WANT THESE THOUGHTS, I DON'T


WANT TO THINK LIKE THIS.
I ACTUALLY PRAYED FOR THE FAMILY


MEMBER I WAS HAVING ISSUES WITH.
THAT IS ONE OF THE HARDEST


THINGS TO DO.
NOW THAT RELATIONSHIP HAS BEEN


COMPLETELY STRENGTHENED,
SOMETIMES THE ONLY ANSWER IS


PRAYER.
IT IS GOD'S GRACE.


IT REALLY IS.
WITH MY SON-IN-LAWS, MY


DAUGHTER-IN-LAW, IF I LOOK AT
THEM THROUGH MY EYES, I WILL


FIND FAULT.
WHEN YOU THINK OF A


FATHER-IN-LAW AND YOU ARE THE
GUY, IT IS LIKE, YEAH, THAT IS


HIS BABY.
THAT IS HIS LITTLE GIRL.


I HAVE NEVER FELT LIKE HE IS
WATCHING OVER MY SHOULDER.


I KNOW THAT BOTH OF THEM AREN'T
AFRAID TO CHALLENGE ME.


THEY ARE NOT AFRAID TO SAY HEY,
MAYBE YOU NEED TO WORK ON THIS.


HOW CAN I PLAY GOD WITH THEIR
LIVES?


I CAN'T.
BY ME FORCING WHATEVER, WHETHER


IT IS FINANCES, WHETHER IT IS
DECISIONS ON HOMES.


YES, I CAN GIVE INPUT.
BUT WHEN I START TO OVERPOWER


THEM, I AM DOING MORE INJUSTICE
THAN ANYTHING ELSE.


I DON'T ALWAYS GET IT RIGHT.
THAT IS WHY I HAVE A HEAVENLY


FATHER WHO FORGIVES ME SO I CAN
FORGIVE THEM.


WE ARE FINISHED RAISING OUR
KIDS.


WE ARE NOT FINISHED BEING
MENTORS.


NOT ONLY WILL SHE WATCH MY
KIDS BUT HELPS TO DISCIPLINE AND


RAISE THEM, TOO.
SHE WILL ENFORCE WHAT WE ENFORCE


AND BRING OUT THOSE SAME VALUES.
I CAN GO TO HER AND BE HONEST,


GRIPE AND COMPLAIN ABOUT JOSH.
SHE'LL SAY YOU NEED TO WORK ON


THAT.
THEY ARE ALWAYS THERE FOR US,


ALWAYS THERE FOR ME.
IN THE COURSE OF THE YEARS,


MANY, MANY COMPLIMENTS ON OUR
CHILDREN.


GREAT TO HEAR THOSE COMPLIMENTS,
WE ALWAYS BRING IT BACK TO GOD.


I COULDN'T ASK FOR ANYTHING
MORE.


I ALWAYS CAN ASK FOR MORE.
[LAUGHTER].


WE ARE SUPPOSED TO GO CRAZY!
[LAUGHTER].


TERRY: I LOVE THE COMMENT
FROM THE FATHER-IN-LAW, THAT


THERE IS AN OPPORTUNITY TO BE A
MENTOR TO YOUR CHILDREN WHEN


THEY GROW UP AND MARRY AND HAVE
FAMILIES OF THEIR OWN.


SECRET IS TO WAIT TO BE OUT.
[LAUGHTER].


THAT'S RIGHT.
YOU HAVE TO BE EASY GOING.


I HAVE A FATHER-IN-LAW, HE IS
THE ONLY GRANDFATHER LEFT.


IN NEW JERSEY.
HE HAS ALWAYS BEEN EASY GOING.


HE MADE IT EASY WHEN I SAID I
WANT TO MARRY CARLA.


TERRY: HAVING WONDERFUL
IN-LAWS WAS A BLESSING.


WONDERFUL AND EXCEPTIONAL
ADDITION TO OUR EVERYDAY FAMILY.


WE HAVE RECEIVED E-MAILS ABOUT
THE STRUGGLES MANY OF YOU ARE


GOING THROUGH FACING IN-LAWS.
LET'S GO TO MARGAREET FOR THE


FIRST ONE.
MY IN-LAWS SEEM TO BE GLAD I


AM A PART OF THE FAMILY BUT TALK
ABOUT ME BEHIND MY BACK.


IT IS A TERRIBLE SOURCE OF
FRUSTRATION FOR MY HUSBAND AND


MYSELF.
I DON'T KNOW HOW TO HANDLE IT.


MY HUSBAND BACKS ME UP, IS THERE
ANYTHING I CAN DO TO FIX THIS?


TERRY: TO FIX IT, HERE IS
THE PROBLEM WITH THE CONDITION


YOU ARE IN, YOU CAN'T CHANGE
OTHER PEOPLE.


THEY HAVE TO DECIDE THEY WANT TO
CHANGE.


YOU REALLY, THE HARD PART IS IT
PUTS NOT JUST YOU IN AN AWKWARD


POSITION, YOU ARE IN BETWEEN
PEOPLE YOU LOVE AS WELL.


I WAS IN THAT AWKWARD
POSITION WHEN CARLA WAS PREGNANT


WITH RACHEL, OUR FIRST CHILD.
MY MOTHER AND HER MOTHER WERE


BOTH BULLYING HER.
IT WAS WEIRD.


I DON'T KNOW WHAT IT WAS.
TERRY: WITH WOMAN


INFORMATION?
SHE WASN'T DOING SOMETHING


PARTICULARLY JUST THE WAY THEY
WANTED HER TO DO IT.


I COULD TELL SHE WAS GETTING
FLUSTERED.


I SAID ALL RIGHT.
THAT IS ENOUGH!


WHEN THE VOICE CAME OUT OF ME, I
WAS LIKE WHERE DID THIS VOICE


CAME FROM?
YOU KNOW WHAT, THEY GOT QUIET


AND RESPECTFUL.
IT SET A STANDARD.


FROM THAT POINT ON.
TERRY: DAVE, DON'T YOU THINK


WHEN WE FEEL LIKE WE ARE TRYING
TO HELP, WE GET IN THERE AND


DON'T REALIZE THE TONE WE ARE
USING.


I HAVE HAD THAT HAPPEN.
MY SON AND DAUGHTER-IN-LAW ARE


LIVING WITH ME RIGHT NOW AND
HAVE BEEN FOR OVER A YEAR.


ONE NIGHT HE AND I WERE AT THE
TABLE, SHE WAS IN CONVERSATION,


I SIDED WITH HIM ON
CONVERSATION, AFTERWARDS I


THOUGHT SHUT UP, GET OUT OF IT.
I ACTUALLY APOLOGIZED TO HER.


ANNE, WITH REGARD TO YOUR
SCENARIO, YOU HAVE A COUPLE OF


OPTIONS.
ONE, IT IS A GOOD ONE, YOU SAY


YOUR FAMILY LOVES YOU, TALK TO
THEM ABOUT IT.


THERE IS NOTHING LIKE AN HONEST
CONVERSATION, YOU HEARD IT IN


THAT PIECE WE JUST WATCHED.
YOU NEED TO BE VULNERABLE IN


THAT TO SAY I KNOW YOU SAY
THINGS ABOUT ME WHEN I AM NOT


THERE THAT REALLY HURT MY
FEELINGS.


I FEEL BECAUSE I VALUE OUR
RELATIONSHIP SO MUCH, I WANT TO


TELL YOU WHAT THAT MAKES ME FEEL
WHEN THAT HAPPENS AND MAKES MY


HUSBAND FEEL AWKWARD, HE FEELS
LIKE HE HAS TO TAKE A STAND FOR


ME IN A SENSE AGAINST YOU.
IF YOU CAN'T DO THAT, ONLY OTHER


OPTION REALLY IS TO LEARN TO LET
IT ROLL OFF YOUR BACK LIKE WATER


OFF A DUCK'S BACK.
SOMETIMES WE ARE IN


RELATIONSHIPS WITH PEOPLE, THAT
IS THE ONLY OPTION WE HAVE.


LET'S TAKE ANOTHER COMMENT FROM
MARGAREET'S DESK.


THIS IS FROM SUE: I HAVE
WONDERFUL IN-LAWS UNTIL I WANT


TO START A TRADITION OF MY OWN.
ONE YEAR THEY GOT TO MAD AT ME


FOR NOT ATTENDING A CHRISTMAS
TRADITION.


THEY TURNED THEIR BACK ON ME.
I TRY TO FORGIVE, BUT THE PAIN


RUNS DEEP.
PLEASE PRAY FOR ME.


TERRY: HERE IS THE THING,
HOLDING ON TO THAT BITTERNESS


CAN ACTUALLY MAKE YOU SICK.
THAT IS SOMETHING ONLY YOU AND


THE LORD CAN WORK ON.
YOU CAN'T CHANGE PEOPLE AS I


MENTIONED BEFORE.
I AM A BIG ONE FOR THIS, WHEN


THERE IS SOMETHING DIFFICULT,
WRITE THEM A LETTER.


YOU CAN READ IT OVER TO MAKE
SURE YOU SAID EVERYTHING YOU


WANT TO SAY.
THEY ARE NOT FACE TO FACE WITH


YOU.
I AM TOTALLY IN AGREEMENT WITH


YOU.
I AM SURE THERE ARE OTHERS THAT


WILL FAULT ME WITH SETTING YOUR
OWN FAMILY TRADITIONS.


THAT IS AN IMPORTANT PART OF
BECOMING FAMILY.


IF OTHER PEOPLE HAVE A NEED FOR
YOU TO CONTINUE TO SUPPORT


THEIRS, AGAIN YOU CAN DISCUSS
IT.


YOU CAN SWEETLY WRITE TO THEM
WHY IT IS IMPORTANT TO YOU TO


ESTABLISH THESE THINGS FOR YOUR
OWN FAMILY.


SOUNDS LIKE MANY YEARS LATER
AFTER THE FACT IN THIS.


ALL I CAN THINK OF, 1
CORINTHIANS 13, THIS IS ONE OF


THE THINGS I PULL OUT ALL THE
TIME, LOVE IS NOT EASILY


OFFENDED.
IN THE OVERALL SCHEME OF THINGS,


EVEN THOUGH THIS IS HAS DEEPLY
WOUNDED YOU, YOU HAVE TO ASK THE


LORD TO HELP YOU PUT IT ASIDE.
MAYBE PRAYING FOR THEM AFTER ALL


THESE YEARS WOULD BE A QUIET BUT
PERSONAL WAY YOU COULD ATTACK


THAT FEELING ASKING GOD TO
RESTORE UNTO YOU, WE TALK ABOUT


RESTORING JOY OF SALVATION,
RESTORING THE LOVE YOU HAVE FOR


YOUR EXTENDED FAMILY AS IT WAS
BEFORE THIS EVENT.


LET IT GO.
IT COULD BE MORE HURTFUL,


ALSO FOR IT TO CONTINUE TO BE
ONGOING MEMORY.


IF SHE DOESN'T ADDRESS IT, THERE
IS NEVER GOING TO BE CLOSURE.


IT GETS BIGGER THAN IT WAS.
THAT WAS A BIG DEAL TO TURN


THEIR BACKS ON HER.
TERRY: VERY BIG DEAL.


I KNOW A WOMAN TEACHER INVITED
BY A PARTICULAR DENOMINATION TO


SPEAK AT THEIR ANNUAL GATHERING,
BECAUSE SHE WAS A WOMAN, THEY


GOT UP IN THEIR CHAIRS AND
TURNED THEIR BACK TO HER.


THAT HAD TO BE DEEPLY WOUNDING.
YOU CAN BE IMPACTED IN A WAY


THAT MAKES YOU BITTER OR SEE IT
FOR WHAT IT IS AND ASK GOD TO


HELP YOU MOVE ON AND TRULY MOVE
ON.


DON'T LET YOUR MIND DWELL.
I AM ONE FOR THAT.


IN MY CAR WHEN SOMEBODY CUTS ME
OFF, BY THE TIME I HAVE 12 SET


CONVERSATIONS OF WHAT I WOULD
HAVE LIKE TO HAVE SAID TO THAT


PERSON IF I COULD.
WITH THE WOMAN THEY TURNED


THEIR CHAIRS AROUND, SHE SHOULD
HAVE RAN AROUND AND PREACHED IN


FRONT OF THEM.
[LAUGHTER].


TERRY: WE HAVE TO BE ABLE TO
LAUGH EVEN THOUGH I KNOW THEY


ARE HURTFUL.
THERE ARE ANSWERS IN GOD'S WORD,


YOU CAN'T BE ACCOUNTABLE IN
SOMEONE ELSE'S BEHAVIOR.


WE MUST BE ACCOUNTABLE ON OUR
OWN.


GOD IS ABLE TO HELP YOU FIND
ANOTHER SIDE TO THAT.


COMING UP HOW ONE COUPLE FOUND A
SECRET TO A SUCCESSFUL MARRIAGE


AFTER THEIR DIVORCE NEXT ON "700
CLUB INTERACTIVE."



AT


JUST 19 YEARS OLD,
PROFESSIONAL SKATEBOARDER BRIAN


SUMNER MET AND MARRIED WOMAN OF
HIS DREAMS.


THEIR WHIRLWIND ROMANCE BECAME A
TRAIN WRECK UNTIL THEY FOUND


WHAT REKINDLED THEIR LOVE AND
BROUGHT THEIR FAMILY BACK


TOGETHER.
WHEN I FIRST MET BRIAN HE WAS


15.
BEING TWO YEARS OLDER THAN HIM,


IT WAS LIKE HE WAS TEN.
I WASN'T INTERESTED AT THE TIME.


I WENT TO CALIFORNIA, ALL
THESE SPONSORS, I FELT LIKE I


HAD ACCOMPLISHED THINGS IN MY
LIFE.


IT HAD BEEN A COUPLE OF
YEARS, WE MET AGAIN AND I DIDN'T


EVEN KNOW IT WAS HIM.
HE WAS A TOTALLY DIFFERENT


PERSON.
HE WAS NOT LIKE ANYONE I HAD


MET.
THERE WAS SOMETHING SPECIAL.


THERE WAS A LOVE, AN
ATTRACTION, A BOND.


IT FELT RIGHT, RIGHT AWAY.
I WOULD HAVE TO GO ON A TRIP.


IT WAS SO HARD FOR US TO BE
APART.


WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT GETTING
MARRIED?


HE PROPOSED AT THE BEACH.
NEXT DAY WE WERE DRIVING TO LAS


VEGAS, LITERALLY.
SO WE JUST SPENT EVERY WAKING


MOMENT TOGETHER.
WE NEVER WANTED TO BE A PART.


SHORTLY AFTER BEING MARRIED, WE
DECIDED WE WANTED TO HAVE A


BABY.
MY FOCUS WASN'T ON BRIAN 100%.


I HAD TO GIVE MY ATTENTION TO
SOMEONE ELSE.


WE ARE STILL YOUNG I AM 19,
SHE WAS 21.


IT CAUSED US FRICTION AND
ARGUING.


WE BEGAN TO FIGHT AND FIGHT
AND FIGHT AROUND MY SON, PUNCHED


HOLES IN STUFF, SMASHED THINGS.
IT WAS AFFECTING DAKOTA.


HE WAS A MELLOW BABY, BECAUSE OF
OUR CONSTANT FIGHTING IT WAS


AFFECTING HIS BEHAVIOR.
I WAS LIKE I DON'T EVEN LIKE


THIS PERSON, CONSTANTLY TEARING
ME DOWN.


YOU DON'T GET ALONG, YOU GET
DIVORCED.


I AM OVER THIS, I AM MAD.
WE ARE SEPARATING, GETTING


DIVORCED.
I MOVE INTO APARTMENT WITH A


BUNCH OF OTHER SKATERS AT THE
TIME.


I LOOKED AT THIS PERSON AND
ALL COMING TO AN END.


VERY EMOTIONAL.
I LOVED HIM BUT BOTH STILL SO


STRUGGLING WITH UM HAVING A KID.
WE WERE SO EMOTIONAL.


HE FINALLY FOUND A HOUSE SO
HE ASKED ME AND DAKOTA TO MOVE


BACK IN WITH HIM AT THE TIME.
OKAY, BABE, WHY DON'T WE LIVE


TOGETHER FOR HIS SAKE.
STILL FIGHTING AND CHAOS.


ANGRY AND FRUSTRATED.
I AM LIKE OKAY, GOD, WHOEVER YOU


ARE AND KNOW WHERE I AM.
WHO ARE YOU, BUDDHA, JESUS,


MARY.
I AM GOING TO PROVE GOD IS NOT


REAL.
READING THE BIBLE, I READ IT TWO


OR THREE TIMES.
I READ IT, SEVEN MONTHS OF


JUMPING AROUND IT, GOD WAS
DEALING WITH ME.


YOU HAVE LIED AND SINNED BEFORE
GOD WHO IS GOOD.


IT HIT HOME.
THAT IS WHY MY MARRIAGE IS THE


WAY IT IS.
I FELT THE PRESENCE OF GOD LIKE


I FELT THIS MOMENT OF MY EYES
BEING OPEN, HEART TRANSFORMED,


HE SHOWED UP.
I'LL GIVE YOU MY LIFE, I'LL GET


BAPTIZED, GO AROUND THE WORLD,
REMARRY THIS WOMAN.


DO WHATEVER YOU WANT.
SITTING THERE IN TEARS SAYING I


CAN'T BELIEVE PEOPLE DON'T KNOW
JESUS.


THE CHANGE IN BRIAN WAS SO
DRASTIC, THAT IT WAS KIND OF


CONTAGIOUS, I GUESS.
THERE BECAME THIS, LIKE A PEACE


OVER HIM.
I BECAME A LITTLE CURIOUS WHAT


HE WAS DOING.
HE WOULD GO TO CHURCH.


THE LAST TIME HE INVITED ME, IT
WAS A POWERFUL BUT SIMPLE


MESSAGE OF THE CROSS.
I REMEMBER HIM TALKING ABOUT


JESUS AND HOW HE DIED FOR OUR
SINS.


IT REALLY SPOKE TO MY HEART.
I HAD SEEN IT A MILLION TIMES


THE ALTAR CALL.
I WAS SITTING THERE, I REMEMBER


PRAYING AND SAYING GOD IF YOU
ARE REAL, I WANT TO BE SAVED


TODAY.
I CAN'T GO DOWN THERE.


MAYBE ANOTHER TIME.
I SAT BACK.


I SAW THE PASTOR LOOKING AT ME.
HE WAS TALKING TO ONE OF MY


FRIENDS.
HE ASKED HER TO COME GET ME.


HE SAID I REALLY FELT GOD
SPEAKING TO ME.


HE SAID HAVE YOU EVER GIVEN YOUR
LIFE TO CHRIST?


HE SAID TODAY IS YOUR DAY.
IT FELT SECURE AND SAFE.


IT WAS SO SIMPLE.
WHEN WE FOUND CHRIST, HE HAS A


PLAN FOR OUR LIVES.
WE AT THE TIME WERE DIVORCED.


WE LOVED EACH OTHER AS A
COVENANT OF MARRIAGE.


I AM LIKE
LORD IF YOU WANT US TO
DO THIS.


IF YOU WANT TO GET MARRIED IN A
PASTOR'S APARTMENT.


WE MARRIED IN OUR OLD
PASTOR'S BACKYARD.


IT WAS A TURNING POINT AGAIN IN
OUR LIVES.


NO TURNING BACK.
THERE IS NOT GOING TO BE ANOTHER


DIVORCE.
WE ARE GOING TO RECONNECT AND DO


THIS THE RIGHT WAY, GOD'S WAY.
SINCE BEING REMARRIED, WE HAD


TWO MORE CHILDREN.
THREE KIDS, 12, 6, AND 3.


WE HAVE JUST GOTTEN INVOLVED
IN BEING MARRIAGE MENTORS AND


SHARE OUR STORY AND HELP OTHERS
THAT MIGHT BE STRUGGLING.


THIRTEEN YEARS LATER, GOT
MATCHING TATTOOS AND RINGS.


IT IS NOT HOPELESS.
LIKE IF YOU ARE IN A


RELATIONSHIP, YOU ARE MARRIED
AND SEEMS THERE IS NO OTHER WAY


BY DIVORCE, THERE IS A WAY THAT
IF YOU PUT YOUR FAITH IN CHRIST,


TRULY, THAT WITH HIM ALL THINGS
ARE POSSIBLE.


GOD SAYS ALL THINGS ARE
POSSIBLE IN HIM.


EVEN THOUGH I HAVE NEVER HAD TO
HAVE MARRIAGE RESTORATION, THERE


HAS BEEN CONSTANT RENEWAL IN OUR
MARRIAGE.


JUST THIS PAST SPRING, WE TOOK A
DYNAMIC MARRIAGE COURSE THROUGH


OUR CHURCH.
EVEN THOUGH I HAVE BEEN MARRIED


OVER 20 YEARS, FOR THE FIRST
TIME I FELT LIKE I HAD A WAY IN


WHICH TO SPEAK TO MY WIFE ABOUT
CERTAIN THINGS IN A


NON-CONFRONTATIONAL WAY THAT WE
BOTH COULD REALLY EXPRESS HOW


WELL FELT BUT STILL BE CIVIL,
STILL HAVE THE RIGHT KIND OF


LOVE TOWARD ONE ANOTHER EVEN AS
WE ARE SPEAKING THE TRUTH IN


LOVE.
IT WAS GREAT.


I REALLY RECOMMEND THAT SORT OF
THING FOR ANYBODY NO MATTER HOW


LONG YOU HAVE LIVED AS A MARRIED
COUPLE.


WHAT I LIKE ABOUT WHAT BRIAN
SAID WAS THIS, WHEN HE READ THE


WORD OF GOD, HE SAW HOW HE HAD
GONE WRONG.


HE SAW THAT HE WAS CAUSING HIS
MARRIAGE TO BE THE WAY IT WAS


BECAUSE OF THE WAY HE WAS
LIVING.


THE BIBLE SAYS THAT THE WORD OF
GOD IS FOR CORRECTION AND EVEN


IN TERMS OF HOW TO LIVE.
I WOULD REALLY RECOMMEND READ


THE BIBLE.
LET THE LORD SHOW YOU HIS WAY,


HIS WAY OF LOVE TOWARD YOUR
WIFE, TOWARD YOUR SPOUSE.


IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO HAVE PRAYER
ABOUT YOUR SITUATION, WE WOULD


LOVE TO PRAY WITH YOU, CALL US
AT 1-888-777-1919.


TERRY?
TERRY: TRAGEDY TURNED INTO


TRIUMPH WITH ONE PHONE CALL
AFTER THIS.


TERRY: THE WOMAN IN OUR


NEXT
STORY HAD A STROKE WHILE HER


HUSBAND WAS OUT OF TOWN.
HE FELT POWERLESS UNTIL HE


REMEMBERED AN EMERGENCY NUMBER
IN HIS CELL PHONE.


IT WAS HIS WORST NIGHTMARE.
HE LEARNED HIS WIFE COLLAPSED.


HE WONDERED AS HE HEADED DOWN
THE HOSPITAL WALKWAY IF HIS WIFE


WAS A LIFE.
OUR CHILDREN ARE YOUNG AND


STILL NEED THEIR MOM.
DAYS EARLIER, HE TOLD HIS


WIFE AND DAUGHTERS GOOD BYE AND
LEFT TOWN ON BUSINESS.


I GOT A FRANTIC CALL FROM MY
DAUGHTER TELLING ME HER MOTHER


FAINTED AND UNCONSCIOUS.
I TOLD HER TO TAKE HER MOM TO


THE HOSPITAL.
SHE SUFFERED A STROKE BECAUSE


OF A BRAIN ANEURYSM.
THEY WATCHED INDONESIAN'S


VERSION OF "700 CLUB." HE SAVED
THE PHONE NUMBER IN HIS CELL


PHONE FOR JUST SUCH AN
EMERGENCY.


A FEW DAYS LATER A CBN PRAYER
COUNSELOR CAME TO THE HOSPITAL


TO PRAY FOR HEALING.
I WAS TOUCHED BY CBN'S VISIT


TO MY WIFE.
I FELL CBN PEOPLE REALLY CARED.


REENY CAME OUT OF THE COMA
AND STARTED OPENING UP HER EYES


AND MOVING HER HANDS.
AFTER MY WIFE WENT THROUGH


THAT CRITICAL TIME, I WAS SO
RELIEVED SHE WAS TOUCHED BY GOD.


WITHIN A WEEK REENY WAS ABLE
TO COME HOME.


HER CONDITION WAS GOOD.
SHE WAS STILL WEAK.


SHE DIDN'T NEED A WHEELCHAIR OR
WALKING STICK.


HE SAW A REMARKABLE CHANGE IN
REENY.


AFFECTS OF STROKE GONE, SHE WAS
BACK TO NORMAL CARING FOR THE


FAMILY.
PRAISE GOD, I AM FEELING VERY


HAPPY NOW.
I AM BACK DOING HOUSE HOLD


CHORES, COOKING, CLEANING AND
DOING LAUNDRY.
