Marriage Enrichment



When you gazed into the eyes of your spouse on your wedding day, and said "I do," you envisioned a marriage that would be satisfying and fulfilling. You probably did not dream that your marriage could get to the point of being less-than-ideal. But yet now you find that the daily pressures continue. It may seem like you are busy all the time, but don't seem to be getting anywhere. Perhaps the passion and romance is less, and you just don't seem to connect with your spouse like you previously did. Do you wonder at times why you signed up for this, or more simply, how to get things back on track? Christian Life Counseling offers a variety of seminars to help enrich a relationship for those who have been married for years, as well as for couples who are just starting out.
   

Pornography



The spread of pornography use over the internet has presented new challenges for many men. This often becomes a secret struggle with significant emotional, spiritual, and relational consequences.
