We’ve been blessed that the Lord has chosen to use us in ministry for close to 40 years. We’ve served in churches (Robert, pastor and school principal), on the mission field in central Brazil, trained young adults in a Christian ministry, and directed a residential treatment center for troubled young men.
We’ve found the Lord to be faithful. He has taken our experiences—mistakes, failures, and triumphs—and used them for good. Through them, He’s shown us more of Himself, let us experience the joy of living in harmony with one another, given us tools for building healthy relationships, and sharpened our message and ministry.
Our relationships are constantly tested. The challenge is how to handle the tests in a way that promotes harmony and unity rather than tension, destruction, and disunity. We’ve gained hope and developed a more loving union as we’ve discovered tools to work on our relationship.
We experience great joy in equipping believers to live in harmony within their families and in other relationships. Life is more pleasant and fulfilling when relationships are healthy, but more importantly, healthy relationships are a testimony to the world of what it means to walk with God and live in His kingdom.
We also delight in encouraging others to have a personal, intimate relationship with God. We find that He is the source of life, strength, and vitality in all relationships.
Robert pastors a church in central Kentucky; we are completing a book, The Great Exchange; and we both speak, conducting seminars nationally. We also care for Robert’s father.
Our blog usually focuses on building relationships—with God and within the body of Christ.
