I had no direction in life. I was not doing well as a wife, a mother, a friend and I was just not developing as a person.
I was not on good terms with my husband and we would go for a week or more without talking to each other, even though we were husband and wife. I served or did things for him just to clear my conscience. I had lost love for him at an early stage in our relationship, I had no feelings for or closeness towards him. There was a time we even spent a full year without being close, just like two strangers living together. I almost gave up on my marriage because I started seeing my husband as a burden. I was very rude to those around me. I would nag and always wanted things my way. I used to despise people. I had no affection for anyone. I was filled with anger and I would wish away those who did not agree with me. I cut communication with them, including my own family. As a result my husband became hostile towards me, my children hated me and even my friends left me.
After receiving various lessons and teachings from Godllywood, I realised where I needed to change and to improve as a wife, a mother, sister and friend. I looked at my position as a wife and put into practice everything I was being taught. For example, I started preparing nice meals for him, serving him, showing him affection, appreciating him as a husband, spending more time with him. This time around, these things were no longer a burden for me but a blessing. I have changed as a wife inside out and my husband loves the woman I have become. I treat my children with love and I respect my friends. I am no longer the same person.
I have grown spiritually. Before I did not know how to apply the word of God in my daily life. I would read the Bible, but with little understanding and without any meditation. My spiritual life was not developing because of this. Through attending services in the church, I started seeing the word of God in a different way and I have grown a lot because of this. I was a very proud person before and now I am open to correction and this has helped me to grow as a person. God has given me so much wisdom through all of this, even at school my students are the best. They always come to me for support and guidance. I have brought many to the church and some are even in Godllywood with me.
