Tonight's special guest is Rodney Calmes from Cornell, Michigan, who says, "I met my wife when I was 29 and dated her for about 2 years and got married when I was 31. She had listened to me and became a great blessing in my life. She stands behind me when I run my page and share my story because she knows it will bring healing and help others heal. My wife is a great support." He further explains, "I realize that the things I have been through and the things I have learned from what I have been through had to be unlearned, along with many behavior patterns, self-destructive behavior, thought patterns, and I had to relearn the correct way of doing things. This is a daily process." Rodney details his young life, saying, "From the time I was born until I was 4, my mother and dad were married. My mother was a good mother to me. My dad was an absentee father. I was slow to catch on to things, and my dad showed more favor to my brother during that time. When I was 4 years old, I lived with my grandparents who used to spank me with a 3-foot stick until I could not feel the stick hitting my butt anymore for every little thing. I got at least one round spankings a day." Adult life was tough, too. "I felt that if too many people discovered that I was abused, that they were going to think there was something wrong with me." Now he's healing. "I now realize that God has made me into a beautiful, loving person who even cares for strangers as much as I care for myself. God gave me that heart. I also realize God's love for me, and His love for others, and every person is precious to Him."
