LeRoy and Kimberly Wagner take us back to their honeymoon, where poor communication skills, combined with hurt feelings, set a pattern that would lead them to bitterness and isolation. With their marriage problems seemingly irreparable, LeRoy decided to step down from his pastorate, causing Kimberly to disrespect him even more. But when Kimberly realized that disrespecting her husband dishonored the Lord, she knew she had to seek his forgiveness. The Wagners share how her apology proved to be the turning point that led to reconciliation. Over time, the Wagners learned to appreciate their differences and to put love first.
