Having a Marriage Perfect for You Is Easier Than You Think

Tuesday, May 4, 2021 @ 9:29 PM

It took me 33 years as a marriage counselor to discover how easy it is to help couples have a marriage perfect for them. When a couple comes for counseling, they are nervous and want to talk about the issues and their feelings. During those first two sessions I can discover what their issues are and can explain how we will overcome them. From that point my job is to get the couple talking together so that we can infuse the Eight Skills I discovered. These are skills most of us did not learn growing up. During this counseling process we will replace the less effective skills practiced all of their lives with the eight more effective ones. So far results have been phenomenal with the couples using this approach.

Because couples have not learned these eight skills, Christian and non-christian couples alike spend too much time absorbed in trying to make their marriages work. They act as though the marriage relationship is the most important. No, one's relationship with Christ is the most important, our following Jesus in serving others. But until they learn these eight skills they continue to be bogged down trying to solve problems for which they have no training. My method of counseling frees the couple from conflicts to serve Jesus and others. We know as Christians that it is more blessed to give than receive. When a couple's purpose is to serve others more than self and selfish interests, they lose much of the anxiety and depression that prevents success in marriage. Why struggle so hard when having a wonderful marriage can be much easier? Contact us at and learn more about this new method of marriage counseling.
