Hello, my name is Joel Beld. Wow, what a amazing opportunity to share what God has done in my life through the Weigh Down Workshop. Before Weigh Down, I was in slavery to many things of this world - food, cigarettes, drug use, money, lust, and the list could go on and on... Praise God for this truth that has totally set me free from all these strongholds. Through these teachings I have lost 50 pounds; I no longer have the desire to smoke cigarettes or do drugs; and I no longer focus on money or lustful things. I have been set free from a dependency on perscription drugs for heartburn.
It has been 5 years now, and the weight has stayed off and I am still learning how to love God more. God has totally blessed my marriage to my beautiful wife, and we are able to pass these teachings down to our children. Most importantly, however, I have a relationship with God that I never knew could have existed and it keeps growing. I love God so much!! To love God is to obey his commandments; I was never told that before. I praise God for Gwen Shamblin and the Weigh Down Workshop that continues to change my life all to the glory of God! Thank you and I am looking forward to getting to know you. God bless.
