Having coached hundreds of couples before and after they say I do I understand the issues that many of them face and the challenges as a leader to address those needs.
My wife and I have written a book entitled "Marriage Works When You Do the Work-Five things you need to know." We also developed a workshop in order to provide couples and singles with the proven tools to help them develop healthy Marriages.
If roughly half of marriages are ending in divorce, my question is how is the other half doing?
Some are thriving no doubt, but so many are just surviving…
Communication is a problem, intimacy is nonexistent and the ability to resolve conflict is lacking!
That's why we created the #MarriageWorks Experience and we want to bring it to you and those that you influence.
Take a look at the video and let's connect! #linkinbio 👇🏿

I debated on sharing this, but I felt like I needed to, to show that there is hope, that relationships do heal and coparenting is possible . This is from my ex wife, my kids mom. We got divorced due to my addiction and well to say she hated me would be putting it lightly. I chose drugs over my family. They really thought they would never see me again, in and out of rehabs, shooting heroin and just that hell of a life style, but this last time I said I wasn't going to say anything just prove myself. Bc in the past it was all broken and empty promises. And it's been a little over 2 years now since I've used last and everyone can see the change, there are no broken promises or anything like my past.. So the past few weeks she has been going through a lot with my kids, from my son being hurt to my daughter getting pneumonia etc. I am in Colorado working so I can only help so much but I did whatever I could do to help them. And I am beyond blessed that her and her new husband are freakin amazing parents. Anyway she sent me this a little while ago and well it was very touching to say the least. We all have an awesome relationship, and I respect both her and him to the fullest and am beyond grateful for them and what they do for our kids. So I pray this gives anyone hope that may be going through a divorce or whatever with the other parent of your child. Relationships do heal, we do get better and things do change. Healthy Co-parenting does exist!
There are many types of #discipline . Some are a reprimand for breaking rules. Others are about having the will power, control, or steady regiment to achieve a goal.
For me, I find it all tied together to keep me balanced mentally, physically, financially, and #spiritually .
Odd that I mention spiritually last, because it really is the first thing that I know I need to watch, because everything else will be what it is afterward. Putting my spiritual need, my #relationship with #JehovahGod , first, before all else is a struggle as it conflicts with the world standard for material things first, as well as what the world would convince me is acceptable
Having a disciplined or steady and precise spiritual routine can be painful. I have had to cut off relationships that were keeping me from being close to #God . I've stopped doing things which please the devil, and now strive to please #myheavenlyfather . I've reassesed my choices of #entertainment so they are not a slow desensitization to the things detestable to #Jehovah . #itisnoteasy but #itisworthit .
I tell you something - I am a #better and #happier#me without those kinds of poisons in #mylife . My relationship and appreciation for #Jehovah has improved.
#JW#dailytext#examiningthescripturesdaily#ThankYouJehovah for the refinement you provide through wholesome #spiritualfood that is always provided at just the right time.
#followup thought (edit add on) ... while discipline can be painful, it can also fine tune a person to have better habits or to develop a quality in themselves. Therefore, discipline is not necessarily a bad thing, and at times we can see how badly we've been behaving toward others and ourselves. We have to be humble and willing to make the appropriate changes when it's time to do so.

Soooo once I got to the park with the 7yr old, she says #PopPop we really should have brought some bug spray👀
Me: Hmm, didn't realize we would need it
Her: Of course we would it's Summer 👀
Me: Thinking "DUH" you knew that 😬 Come on #PopPop let's get it together 😂😂😂😂😂
Are you Married, or a Parent trying to figure it out?
Here is what we know
Relationships are messy that's a fact of life. Another fact is you don't have to lose because of it.
For years others called me a public success all the while I knew I was a private failure. .
Today I understand the difference in relationships making it or not has everything to do with the support that's around them!

Most people quit (including me) before the process is complete! My truth is that, when I focus on "embracing the process" instead of trying to "like it" I get so much further.
The truth is I may never fall in love with the process but when I fall in love with what the process produces, perseverance becomes sustainable!
Droppin' some serious #truth .
If we want things to be different, we have to be willing to change.
Change can be really painful, but staying stuck in circumstances, a job, a routine, a life that is not God's great plan for you is so much worse.
It will take work. It will take sacrifice. It will take time.
In the end it is WORTH it.
Push through fear. Embrace change. <3
