I grew up in a house without marriage. Although there was much love, there wasn't a husband or a wife there.
I knew what a wedding looked like but I didn't know what a Tuesday looked like.
Pre-Marital Counseling was a lifeline for me in the months before Sarah and I got married. We talked about important issues, picked up some vital skills, and we argued in the sunshine, when the pressure was low.
A few months after our wedding we moved to a college town and I had the opportunity to counsel over 50 couples toward lifelong love. I learned a lot over the years about what makes a marriage strong and fun. I love sharing those things with anyone else who wants to learn.
My marriage prep course is offered in the context of my Pastoral Counseling practice. I ask a lot of questions, do a lot of listening, look for areas in need of hope and healing, and then walk in those directions with those who felt like they were walking alone.
Sarah and I have been married for almost 13 years now and we have three kids. Through all the challenges and celebrations God has taken two hopeful kids and turned them into new people through oneness and grace.
I'm thankful for the wellness in our start and I would love to offer the same to you.
