Daniel Testimonial: a husband isn’t just about fulfilling duties

Daniel Testimonial:

“Attending the recent marriage intensive with Joel & Kathy Davisson at their Airbnb has truly been a transformative experience for Jan and I. We’re working on daily walking this out. It’s not just about learning how to be better spouses; it’s about embracing the profound responsibility of being the husband and wife God has called us to be.

The program challenged me, as a man, to step into the role that God intended for me in our marriage. It is pushing me to dig deeper, examine my actions, and reflect on how I can better serve and cherish my wife as Christ does the church. Through heartfelt discussions and guidance, I realized that being a husband isn’t just about fulfilling duties; it’s about keeping my wife front of mind and leading with love, humility, and grace.

One of the most significant paradigm shifts I’ve experienced is understanding the importance of empathy and communication. Learning to truly listen to Jan’s needs, fears, and dreams I know will strengthen our bond in ways I could have only imagined (easier said than done). It’s not just about being present physically; it’s about being emotionally available and supportive in every aspect of our journey together.

Moreover, the intensive reminded me of the beauty of partnership in marriage. We are not just two individuals coexisting; we are a team, navigating life’s ups and downs hand in hand. Understanding this and applying it will bring us closer together, fostering a sense of unity and purpose in our relationship.

In essence, this marriage intensive has equipped us with the tools and insights needed to cultivate a thriving marriage rooted in faith, love, and mutual respect. We are immensely grateful for the guidance and support we received from Joel & Kathy in person and from their moderators on the weekly calls. I now am convinced as I die to my selfish desires and lay my life down for Jan, and her getting healed and responding to my unconditional love, that we can look forward to continuing this journey of growth and devotion together.”
