How far can a person go in search of happiness? Well, for Sid Roth, an American talk show host and author, his search for happiness almost made him sacrifice his relationship with his wife and daughter.
Despite having it all, from a fulfilling family to a well-settled profession, Sid Roth's It's Supernatural host's dissatisfaction with life led him to leave his family and take the road of solitude. But later, his journey of discovering faith in Jesus brought him back to the family he once abandoned.
How Faith Restored Sid's Relationship With His Wife?
"I did something I am not proud of. I left my wife, daughter, and Merrill Lynch and went searching for happiness."

His life was what many would picture as a fulfilling life, but it wasn't the case for Sid. He wanted more.
Becoming a millionaire was his biggest goal that overshadowed every other aspect of his life, even his family. As his job was not offering him his dream, he went in search of happiness, leaving his wife and daughter behind. As he described,
Although I had a wonderful life and career, I felt I was a failure because I was not a millionaire. My search led me to Eastern meditation, the New Age. During this search, I almost lost my mind. Life was too difficult.
Having faced several difficulties in his quest for peace and fulfillment, he came across a Christian businessman whose intriguing words made Sid rethink his religion. In his words,
A Christian businessman challenged me that my Jewish Bible condemned my occult practices and told me that Jesus was the Jewish Messiah that my Orthodox Jewish upbringing had carefully hidden from me. I was stunned.
As he began searching for the answer to the mystery that the Christian businessman had introduced to him, Sid claimed he had an unreal encounter with Jesus in his dream one night which changed his life forever.
Not only did he say that the miraculous experience changed the direction of his life journey, but it returned him to his wife and daughter along with his other family members that he left behind looking for fulfillment.
As he said, the supernatural encounter, which brought him back to his roots, made him who he is today.
