I would like to share with you a letter I just received, a message that made my heart leap with joy. I love all aspects of helping people heal, but nothing thrills me more than saving a marriage.
First, I would like to offer my sincere gratitude for your help and guidance to bring our marriage back and beyond to what it was before. It is only through God's grace and love that we have been restored to one another.
We are so blessed and thankful for God guiding us to you! ??I remember when my wife requested a divorce and I reached out to a Christian friend for guidance. He referred me to a marriage rescue ministry, where I met with the founder and described the situation to him. His response was that his experiences with couples in similar situations led him to caution that it was most likely our marriage could not be restored. Then God brought us to you and you provided the guidance we needed to learn to listen with love. I always wondered why you didn't place any focus on the trial we were going through; instead you were pushing for us to look towards a future where we "dance" together. I didn't understand fully then but now I do understand. Looking forward to a better future provided a goal to reach for and kept our minds from focusing on the negative feelings of the past which really served no good purpose.
Now we have the skills to communicate with love to one another. Each day we "dance" a little closer together, learning from and about one another as we grow closer to becoming the "one flesh" God promised. It's not perfect, which is no surprise, as we are not perfect. However, we are committed, in love, to one another as never before. The tools you provided to us have and will continue to help us "dance" together. ??Faith, forgiveness, hope and love are the most important things I have learned from this experience.
Having faith in God to perform a miracle in our marriage and walk at my side through it all. Forgiveness for all the terrible sins I am guilty of by his Son on the cross showed me the way to forgive myself and her. The gift of hope from a God so big that nothing is impossible even when the world says otherwise. The amazing blessing of God's love for me taught me how to love my wife and show her his boundless love. Every day I fail in many ways but God is always there and he never does. Praise him!??Thank you so much for your kindness, gentle guidance and encouragement!

My experience in counseling marriages and relationships for over 20 years (as well as being with my wife for over 30 years) has taught me that every marriage has a Â“dance,Â” and that every marital dance is meant to be as smooth and beautiful as Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers. If youÂ’ve never seen them in action, rent the movie Top Hat. Fred and Ginger didnÂ’t just walk out on a dance floor and automatically flow in gorgeous Â“oneness.Â” They worked hard at perfecting their dance, accepting coaching where necessary. And as in the case with Bill in Bartlett, the coaching often involved feedback and techniques that were unexpected by Fred and Ginger at first, but paid enormous dividends once they were employed.
If your marriage or relationship is not dancing as smoothly as Fred and Ginger, give me a call TODAY, donÂ’t wait!
Nothing brings individuals down more than an unhealthy relationship "danceÂ” and it doesnÂ’t have to be that way. I have helped heal marriages at all levels of pain; there is not a marriage problem I have not fixed.
If you know of someone else who needs help with their Â“danceÂ”, please pass along this message of hope. You or they could be writing me a letter like BillÂ’s in just a couple of months!
