What Others
are Saying:



"Having heard Jack and Sheryl present to groups of Christian counselors, to my clients, my family, and to my wife and me, we have all found the presentations to be inspiring, practical, and enjoyable. Their presentations are a lively mix of scripture, solid research, their personal testimony, audience participation (unforced), highlights from successful authors, and perhaps the most readable, useful handouts I have ever gotten from a seminar. Any marriage or love relationship would benefit from these classes, and I couldn't recommend these gifted teachers with more confidence." (March 2004)

Licensed Clinical Psychologist
Author of Coping with Difficult People, (Westminster Press)

“I have been praying many years for people to discover from sound research why married couples separate and how to help them stay together in a loving way.
