"You Do Not Have A Marriage Problem That God Cannot Fix"
If the Spirit of God raised Jesus from the dead, then He can certainly resurrect a dead marriage.  

However, they typical 1-hr session approach doesn't work, you need an Accelerated Marriage Counseling approach (AMC).

Like touching bases on a baseball diamond the sequential order of "Blending The Four Ingredients Of Intimacy" (Marriage Skill #37) must be met in the following order:  



#1. Affectionate Caregiving -- says "I care about you."

#2. Vulnerable Communication -- says "I trust you." 

#3. Joint Accomplishment -- says "I need you."

#4. Mutual Giving -- says "I love you."


It is hard to become intimate when trying to blend these ingredients backwards.  For example, if I try to lovingly give to you (#4 Mutual Giving), it will not be effective unless you allow yourself to need me.  You must allow me to meet your needs (#3 Joint Accomplishment).


It is also hard to allow your self to need me (#3 Joint Accomplishment) if you do not trust that I will come through for you (#2 Vulnerable Communication).


And isn't it hard to allow yourself to trust me (#2 Vulnerable Communication) if you do not sense that I care about you (#1 Affectionate Caregiving). 


So blend the ingredients of intmacy by first communicating that you care (#1).  Do not let your fear of being hurt or rejected keep you from being vulnerable with your own disappointments, issues and needs (#2). Resist being self-sufficient by allowing your partner to be involved in your life to meet needs (#3) and strive toward both of you giving and neither one of you taking (#4).

 What other's are saying, (actual quotes):
  • "My closeness score went from 27 to 200 (on a 100 point scale)!"
  • ". . . an out and out miracle unfold  as God completely healed and restored not only our marriage, but each other!"
  • "It has changed our lives!  We have a marriage that is alive -- full of life!"
  • "I gave my marriage a 1% chance of surviving . . . after our sessions I give it a 200% chance!"

A 3-day clinic to learn / experience 25 Core Relational Life Skills.

Topics to be discussed
