The resource I recommend most often for marriage, particularly one in crisis, is Marriage Helper. While many marriage issues and needs can be addressed in a church setting or counselor’s office, those in crisis typically require more intense and specialized help than either of these venues tend to offer.
Marriage Helper offers myriad resources in varied formats. You’ll find podcasts, videos, small group and in-home studies, workshops, and more. Here is a sampling of some of the issues addressed by Marriage Helper.
The crown jewel of Marriage Helper is The Marriage Helper 911 Seminar. It is truly one of the most amazing weekends any couple can experience. My husband and I attended the seminar nearly ten years ago, and it was one of the best things that we have ever done (and likely one of the key factors in our being married now for 27 years and counting).
My husband and I not only experienced transformation in our own marriage, but we also witnessed amazing miracles in other marriages over the course of the weekend. We saw couples move from despair to hope, anger to forgiveness, and withdrawal to commitment. We saw couples whose plans were to divorce after the weekend seminar who instead left with a renewed commitment to stay the course.
Since that weekend, my husband and I have sent others to the seminar and have seen their marriages similarly affected. Joe Beam, founder of Marriage Helper, has devoted his life to saving as many marriages as possible, and thousands of couples are together today as a result of the work he has done through Marriage Helper.
