If you and your significant other are thinking about getting married, but, you think you need to discuss it with someone first, I will be more than glad to help you by discussing what and how marriage changes every aspect of your life. If you're looking for council from a Religious view, we will discuss what your relationship with God is, as an individual, as a couple, and where work is needed, how you can work together as one, to become the helpmate that Eve was to Adam, ways to make your faith stronger with your marriage and your marriage stronger through faith, we will discuss financial planning, life events that you're planning, as well as goals you'd like to reach as a couple. Plus other issues that either party may feel they need to talk about. It is my goal to prepare the couple as well as possible before they go blindly into this. Marrying the person of your dreams, who you love so dearly is a beautiful thing. But, there are surprises that can get thrown at newlyweds, which can put a terrible strain on their union, and some couples don't survive them because they didn't know how to work though it. I am more than happy to help you be better prepared to walk into your new life, in a strong bond of love, faith and support. In a world where everything from personal relationships to the money we earn, is seen as disposable, please don't become another statistic, be in the minority that fulfils the vows they take. If you don't chose to take me up on this, then, I have a prayerful and heartfelt request of anyone reading this, please find someone who will counsel you.
How it works: when I am contacted, I will get an email address from the client, and send a basic questionnaire for both parties to fill out, as quick as you can, and return, via email. From there, I will send you a second set of questions that ask about your life, there are three parts to this, one for both individuals, and then one to be completed together. With this email also come a time for us to make contact via group chat (I use google hangouts or FB messenger) or a time I can call and we can all three talk, via phone. that one is a trickier one to pull off at times, which is why I use group chat the most.) depending on how quick the wedding is coming, and other factors, this is usually done in two or three sessions. But, I won't just wish you well, without giving time for each party to ask questions and address concerns they have, only when you feel comfortable and ready to be done with my services, will I exit the scene. The price doesn't change for any reason, no matter how long you request my council, or how many sessions.
Training & Qualifications
Ordained by 21 different Christian churches/groups to preside over weddings, and act as a mediator, to advise, educate, council and prepare the couple by pre-marital counselling. I am currently able to officiate weddings, by state, local and all federal laws. I was first ordained in this role 12 years ago. I also have seen, that couples who don't consider at least some form of counselling before their wedding face a harder marriage, and of that number more couples divorce than not.
