I attended my first Weigh Down class over 20 years ago and my life has never been the same since. It has been permanently changed! My life before Weigh Down consisted of waking up every day in complete anxiety, extreme control that resulted in planning every hour of the day, exercising for at least 2-3 hours, eating very little food (of course fat-free only), and then ending the day in complete anxiety and self-focus again. As a result, my marriage was falling apart while I was physically wasting away and mentally becoming severely depressed. In 1996, 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 real love for God and answered prayers. Gwen Shamblin’s teaching on obedience was revolutionary for me. Even as a Registered Nurse, I had never heard of these basic, true concepts of hunger and fullness. Over the past ten years, I have continued to change and I am happier every year that passes! I have a completely blessed marriage, have had two beautiful, healthy children, and have maintained the same weight for over 20 years. I have complete peace from the moment I wake up until the time I go to sleep because I am living only to do God’s will and not my own. I did grow up searching for God, but it was not until I found Weigh Down that the bible began to make sense to me. I have learned to how to lay down sin and live a pure life for God through what Gwen Shamblin has taught. I had spent most of my life running after anything that would make me feel good, and now I have found it. God has completely transformed my life for the better and I know this is a permanent change. I never have to worry about gaining the weight back or losing the peace. I praise God for Gwen Shamblin for sharing her love for Him and the truth that has set me free from a life of control and misery. There is nothing in this world that could replace the peace with God in my heart and mind that I now have every day!
