Starting Us on the Right Foot We couldn’t be happier that we started our marriage out on the right foot with the help of Growthtrac. Although we were in love and had things in common, we attribute the success of our relationship to the tools Growthtrac provided us. Without them, we wouldn’t have gotten to know each other in such a powerful way. Growthtrac is essential for any marriage. —William and Rose

Showed Me How to Share My Feelings When I first began receiving your daily updates, my husband and I were drifting apart. I secretly resented him for our lack of date nights and time together. One of the first Marriage Minutes I read included questions to start a meaningful dialogue with your spouse. The next talked about praying for your husband. It may seem small, but those Marriage Minutes helped me openly express how I was feeling in a way that did not diminish or belittle my husband. As a result, we got through that rough patch. And now our daughter says we act like high-school sweethearts who make each other blush! —D.R.

Guiding Me Toward the Gospel While surfing the Internet, I accidentally landed on Growthtrac. I angrily submitted a question stating I’d always hated God and asking why they thought they had the answer. I never expected to get a reply from the staff—but I did. My next few contacts with Growthtrac were a mixture of them telling me I needed Jesus and me attacking the person who wrote me. Yet over the next few days, God used many things–including Growthtrac’s persistent, gentle emails—to soften my heart. After wrestling with God for hours, finally surrendered to Jesus Christ. He’s transforming me—and my marriage. Thank you, Growthtrac, or your commitment to serving God through this excellent ministry. — Emily

Hello, I just wanted to thank you for your ministry. Today’s devotional was something I needed to hear. I am also a Facebook fan. I appreciate your ministry and facebook page because now it brings me to reality and it helps me to lift up and surrender my husband to the Lord in the midst of my pain and disappointment, to give myself time to heal, and to hope (and oh how hard it is!) that one day, someday I can once again be able to say things I love most about my spouse.  — anonymous

My husband is in Afghanistan and I send him your devotionals by e-mail. It is such a blessing to get them! I rely on these to get me through these days. We have been blessed by Growthtrac. Thank you!!!!! — Denise

I live in a small town and have not been able to share my hurt. This is the only place I can unburden myself. I almost killed myself for having no one to talk to. — Robin

Growthtrac will always hold a different meaning and purpose to me. For most it’s marriage — For me it meant finding life. — Cynthia

I have been struggling for a long time about the decision to accept Jesus. Reading your message is what made me realize that I need Jesus and I want Jesus in my life. Thank you so much for the nudge I needed! — Casey

I have been able to correspond with people who are experiencing the same problems as me and who understand exactly what I am going through. When I am having a difficult day, I can get encouragement from people who love the Lord and in return love their fellow man. I know God is with me, but it is great to know there are others who care about me as well even though they don’t know me personally. Growthtrac is a safe place to vent and to get advice — anonymous

Thanks for sending these (devotions) and feeding my spirit daily. I appreciate you! — Melissa

I am not sure if you realize how many lives you touch, but after I read the daily marriage minutes, I pass them on to my husband in Iraq. He then forwards on to his troops as well. Thank you for allowing me to be a partner in your helping of Christ’s Kingdom~ With Hope in Him  — Denise

I must say I am highly impressed with the quality of advice and resources. — Christine

I really appreciate the service you provide. Many times you have ministered to me through your Daily Devotionals; they have had a significant impact on my life. One night last month I cried and cried and to the Lord asking him for help, strength and guidance in a continuous struggle I’ve been going through. I woke up the next morning and I was ministered to, and put at peace through a message from Growthtrac. Thank you Jesus for Growthtrac’s ministry. God’s bless you. — Millicent S.

I want to compliment you on the excellent articles and information on your site which I find to be outstanding and very useful in my work with my young clients. — Valerie

I have enjoyed your ministry and have found it helpful in understanding past mistakes and resolving my present situation. I’ve been to a number of Christian relationship web sites and none of them have moved me that way Growthtrac ministry has. Growthtrac’s ministry has helped me and I know it was God’s guidance to your web site and my obedience to Him that has allowed me to reach out . Tanisha L.

Growthtrac has been a lifeline to me and my husband. When I first found out about my husband’s affairs during most of our marriage, I didn’t function too well. I searched for Christian forums and immediately found Growthtrac. Being able to converse with people who’d been where I was, understood my pain, was highly important. I didn’t feel alone anymore. — anonymous

Growthtrac has helped me to realize that I am not alone in my circumstances and I have received Godly advice and caring fellowship. — anonymous

I am a regular visitor to Growthtrac and am truly blessed by your web site. — Dave E.

Growthtrac Radio

Just heard the “Cheezy-Lactose Intolerant” thing…Oh gosh…too funny. I have always wanted to tell XM radio that… (A) Playing large amounts of “News Boys”, “Third Day” and “Michael W. Smith” (B) Playing music older than 10 years OR (C) combining A & B …WILL not hasten HIS return. I know it takes some form of passion AND time to have play lists like that you have. Thank you for the effort, it is appreciated. —John

I’d really like to know where you folks came up you’re your playlist… someone must really know and have experience with worship. It is amazing that other Internet and satellite stations claim they play modern worship and really don’t. You’re great. I do support you. — Mike

Great radio station, my favourite! — A listener in the UK

<I LOVE your mix of contemporary worship music — lots of variety — and not cheesy lol!! I also like the marriage tips- very practical. I’ve sent some of my friends and my newly married daughter to GT Radio. Seriously you are the best radio station on line or otherwise I have ever listened to. I always have it on. Thank you!!!! GOD BLESS!! — Cheryl

Listening to Growthtrac Radio from Paris. A blessing enabling Christian Music from my Hotel Room, and a comfort for being home-sick! Thanks GT!

I had been searching for a Christian station that I was ‘in tune’ with for some time, basically going through the large list on iTunes radio. Growthtrac radio stood out as I seem to like every single track that gets played! It is a very good way to find new artists that I like to listen to. I like the pearls of wisdom that get thrown in as well. I have just started tuning in during my day job as well as it is so enjoyable. It’s too bad that I can’t get it in my car as well as I drive for up to 2 hours a day. The station is a great source of inspiration.
