Luke and Jessica Blosenski have been married for 13 emotional years. They experienced physical addiction, sexual lust and self-centeredness. In their redemption, they are now serving God at their church, The Gathering, and the Lancaster County prison. Their story is full of hope, redemption and radical change.
Dave and Connie Dienner have been married for 37 years. God’s hand has been on their lives through extreme financial trials. Their story includes losing their house, business and having to live with friends. After years of struggle, God restored their finances and relationship. Dave is the Sr. Elder of New Life Family Center, a DOVE church, and Connie runs a performing arts school, Cavod Academy of the Arts in New Holland.
Todd and Marie Good have been married for 23 years and have four children, one who is in heaven. In 2012 their world shattered with the diagnosis of their son’s cancer and the disclosure of a secret addiction. Life seemed completely hopeless. Todd is now the PA regional director for Be Broken Ministries. Marie is writing a blog. Both Todd and Marie have found redemptive reasons to live, love and laugh once again.
Jamie and Janelle Groff Janelle, after losing her former husband of seven years while serving on the mission field, felt God would some day redeem her story. She also desired a new earthly daddy for her two sons. Jamie, with frustrations about being single in his mid-30’s, never lost hope in his aspirations to find the woman he was to marry. Their story is filled with life after great pain.
