Changying refers to Tracey, who has taken over some of the classes in Australia since I’ve left and whom you’ll meet in another post.

May 2, 2013 [Idols of the Heart, Marriage] 
A God Empowered Wife friend sent me a video testimony published by Nancy Leigh DeMoss and Revive Our Hearts. It tells the story of Joy McCain ‘s desire and struggle, breakthrough, separation, and finally reconciliation and restoration to a husband who was a drunk and becoming violent. It demonstrates everything we talk about in our classes, and the ideas in my next book on Idols. I encourage you to visit the Revive Our Hearts site or their channel on YouTube and view more videos to remind you and encourage you that God is faithful when you worship only Him. Joy has also written a book about her journey, and I will be giving away two copies (US residents only). Just be one of the first two people to send me a story in email form about how you have applied what you’ve learned from God Empowered Wife and/or idols of the heart (announced May 4).
