If you are facing the possibility of ending your marriage, wouldn’t you want to be sure that it is your best and only choice? 

Close to half of divorced couples regret not putting more effort into their first marriage. I have worked with over 120 couples who found themselves at the  painful place of divorce. You should know that the vast majority were glad they took the time to gain clarity about such an irrevocable decision. Our hope is that even if divorce becomes absolutely unavoidable,  you would at the very least have the confidence that you didn’t walk away from your marriage and at the very best find that your relationship has more hope for healing that you previously thought. Our process helps you uncover how you got to the place where divorce is on the table, explore the effectiveness of what has been tried to address your issues, and explore the options facing you now. It is a common experience for couples to discover the roadblocks to their marital happiness and begin to see HOPE that great marriage counseling with their mutual commitment could possibly lead to the relationship they have always wanted.
My husband and I have had a few counseling sessions with Pastor Russ.  Both of us left our first session feeling inspired and with hope that we were on the right track. Russ has also given us a different perspective on each other’s childhood’s, which has helped us understand each other and also helped us understand some of our differences.  We look forward to continuing our counseling..”         Unchurched Couple from Blaine, MN


 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come!   All this is from God, who reconciled us to himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation:  that God was reconciling the world to himself in Christ, not counting men’s sins against them. And he has committed to us the message of reconciliation.  
2 Corinthians 5:17-19 (NIV)
