I was born into a large family and I loved the closeness of my family. Nothing could change this closeness, and I spent my youth in this atmosphere. But things changed for me after I was married. My husband was always bitter and closed, and he didn’t get along well with others or with me.

This emotional separation made our family weak. We could never be close, and little by little, love left our house.

I was desperate for love and peace, but it was impossible with my husband. Our life was bitter every day. Years passed like this. Even small problems would go without resolution and affect our lives for a long time. My only request was that God give our family forgiveness for all the past hurts and help us to live together. I asked Him to show me His will for our lives.

I got what I asked for the day my daughter brought home stories about God. We started reading them together, and in just in a few weeks we had learned to talk to God directly. We were amazed as we watched how He was coming to our lives! It was great for me because, more and more, I was receiving and feeling forgiveness in my soul.

In these stories about God, I found out who our main supporter is—it was so evident to me. So when I read the story about Jesus, I didn’t have any doubts and I believed in Him. After 26 years of being so unhappy in my marriage, I now experience love and peace from God.
