Renovating U has transformed our lives and our marriage. In the beginning I knew I had some seriously deep wounds and these wounds affected me individually as well as our marriage. I asked my husband to attend Renovating U classes with me since I was new to the church. I wanted him to “support me." He reluctantly obliged. Once in the class we both started to learn things about ourselves that we had often chalk up as "that's just who I am." God was showing both of us many things about ourselves. My husband was no longer attending just to "support me." Often men do not want to admit their need for inner healing. Things began coming up in both of us that we had never shared with one another, or anyone for that matter.
As time passed, we continued to learn about ourselves, and others. We both gained the tools to deal and talk to one another. We now have far more compassion for each other and those that are hurting as well. We are currently in our third class can and are learning something new every time. Though our marriage is still a work in progress, we have been able to identify the triggers and can correct it before we tailspin into a heated argument. The Renovating U team is so compassionate and we felt so comfortable opening up to them and sharing our stories. God doesn't want us to carry the baggage of life hurts. We have gained so much from these classes including deep friendships.
