Bob’s hopes were dashed when his wife walked out minutes into the first Friday evening session: “Are You Living the Dream?” Downcast, he followed her.
Ann continued walking down the long hotel hallway. Bob stopped at the elevators to collect his thoughts. That is when a FamilyLife counselor approached him.
Bob was so embarrassed by his wife’s behavior and his dashed hopes that he barely made eye contact. He couldn’t put into words the pain he was feeling. The counselor briefly asked God to soften hearts, open minds, and heal hurt.
Ann finally rejoined Bob and they left the ballroom area. Not knowing if the couple had left the conference, the counseling team prayed they would return and work through their struggles.
The next morning the counseling team was excited to see Bob and Ann at the session. They attended the rest of the weekend. During the final testimony time, Ann was the first to stand in front of 500 people, declaring, “Bob is the champion of my heart!”
