Stephen retired from the Ugandan army and began staying at home more. His account of what followed reveals deep problems in his relationships with others, including those closest to him:
I was a serious drunken man, quarreling with my wife and children, not so friendly with the community. I could not relate with my wife in a friendly way. I was very tough on her and even the children.
Then Stephen became attracted to the Discipling for Development training in his town. Stephen learned appreciative inquiry, a practice that helped him look for the good in his family and others. He began to respect his wife for her work on household chores. He learned to appreciate his children as well. In the process Stephen trusted Christ as his Savior and has developed as a leader in his community.
