Passionate About Teaching and Inspiring Others

I've been working with couples for over 16 years.  I've been married for over 50 years - unfortunately not to just one woman.  My initial marriage lasted nearly 30 years and my current marriage is in it's 25th year.  In my own case, and in the case of most of the couples I work with, we've never been taught how to "do relationship".   It's not that we wouldn't do what we need to do to have a great marriage - we don't know what to do.  And, it's very painful and difficult to learn what to do in the midst of trouble.

I've committed myself to teaching and inspiring others before they encounter major issues - relational preventive maintenance, if you will.  Over the past 16+ years I've developed a way of working with couples that I call the Mutual Understanding Method®.  The over-arching concept for this approach is based on the following statement:  Communication is not the key to your marriage - mutual understanding is.  This straight forward, common sense approach weaves scripture and psychological research together.

I use a modified version of this approach in coaching pre-marital couples.

I am in my sixth year of doing a weekly radio program about marriage and family relationships here in the Treasure Valley.  The program, Life Point Plus, is aired on KBXL, 94.1 FM, on Friday mornings at 8:45.  You can listen to previously aired broadcasts by going to and clicking on the Program Archives tab.  I also write a column for Christian Living Magazine titled Understanding Relationships.  You can read past columns by clicking on the Past Issues tab of their website home page.
