I’m a teaching and counseling pastor with a Masters in Marriage and Family Counseling, over 30 years of pastoral counseling experience, more than 40 years of experience being a husband to my wife Libby. And I’m still learning.
I met Libby in high school, but it took me four years to finally convince her to go out with me. After a three year long distance relationship, she finally agreed to marry me in 1980. I either won her over or wore her down, but either way...I won.
We’ve moved from Illinois, to Oklahoma, to Texas, to Georgia. We’ve raised two daughter who now have families of their own. We’ve been madly in love, and some times just mad. There have been times when we couldn’t bear to be apart and other times when we probably weren’t too sure about being together. But God knew what He was doing when He put us together, (even though we were pretty clueless), and we’ve been learning and growing since then.
What You’ll Find Here...
Marriage and Family - Here, you’ll find a tab marked “Normal Marriage.” Why Normal Marriage? Because that’s what most of us have. We don’t have textbook perfect marriages, and we don’t have Charlie Manson type marriages. We just have “normal” marriages filled with good times and bad, fun and frustration. Normal can be quite wonderful if you let it. You don’t have to have a perfect marriage to have a great marriage.
Personal Growth - Here you’ll find 2 Minute Truths, which are quick and practical truths for your everyday life, found in each chapter of the Bible. You’ll also find something called Quick Counsel. This is a podcast with short and simple counseling insights you can apply to you life.
Sexual Abuse Recovery - Here you will find a unique way to understand the process of healing from sexual abuse. This comes from my years of counseling individuals and leading groups for sexual abuse victims.
There are other things for you to explore, but I’ll leave you with the story of my personal journey of faith.
