Creating opportunities for couples to experience more meaningful and rewarding marriages through Marriage Mentors, I Promise®, and the Connect Assessment® programs.

We believe the strength of every culture can be traced back to the strength of the family and the source of strength for every family is found in the marriage between husband and wife. Strong Marriages seeks to partner with churches and other organizations who share our passion. We want to empower individuals to help strengthen the marriages in their community. By offering a proven mentoring ministry curriculum and online support system, pre-marital and small group resources, and a free online survey that gives church leaders an overview of the marriages in their church, Strong Marriages is playing a critical role in equipping individuals with the tools they need to experience God's design for marriage.

Mission: Building Godly strong marriages through biblical principles and meaningful relationships

Operating as usual

[01/08/21]   My orthopedic surgeon opened the door and said, “It’s time.” The x-rays revealed the bone erosion after 30 years had taken its toll on both of my knees. No steroid shot, no gel injection, or any other quick fix was going to provide relief. The only hope I had of ever walking free of pain would come only after both of my legs were cut completely in half, the degenerated joints removed and new, stronger titanium knees inserted in their place.

Anyone who has ever experienced these types of surgeries knows first-hand that what I just described is only the first step to recovery. True healing requires enduring an agonizing journey of physical rehabilitation. Cancer survivors understand. So do soldiers, first responders and anyone else who has survived a traumatic event.

My first day in rehab, I remember just wanting someone - anyone - to reassure me things would eventually be ok. Only, I soon learned the real assurance I needed wasn’t going to come through passive words founded in a skeptical perspective of someone hurting like myself who was also searching for the same outcome. Instead, I needed someone who had already pressed on through the face of adversity - and survived. Someone who began by sharing things would only get better once I accepted the reality of just how severe things were.

That I choose what to believe, and believe it or not, I would be able to endure a lot more than I thought possible. But, demanding and expecting someone else do what I needed to do myself wasn't an option. That my circumstance or experience wouldn’t determine any outcome. My every response would do that.

Our days are unquestionably uncertain, difficult and challenging. People are hurting. No persuasion needed. A lot of erosion has occurred and for many, things seem completely irreparable.

But frankly, no institution of man can repair what only God can restore.

The Apostle Paul knew this truth. He also understood quitting wasn’t an option when he shared the following words in Philippians 3:12-16:

“Not that I have already attained, or am already perfected; but I press on, that I may lay hold of that for which Christ Jesus has also laid hold of me. Brethren, I do not count myself to have apprehended; but one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead, I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.

Therefore let us, as many as are mature, have this mind; and if in anything you think otherwise, God will reveal even this to you. Nevertheless, to the degree that we have already attained, let us walk by the same rule, let us be of the same mind.”

Physically, emotionally or spiritually - collectively or individually, no matter the relationship or the circumstance, God can heal what is broken. He uses people to do it. His process is straightforward, radical to most, and seldom without pain.

Together, we can be a part of God's restoring process for our country. Only, not as Democrats or Republicans, white, black or brown, rich, middle class or poor. Following Paul's lead, who knew from experience, we must walk together by the same rule, the same mind, encouraging one another as we press on, putting our hope and faith in Christ Jesus so that we may lay hold of that for which He has laid hold of for us. Wouldn’t you agree it’s time?

Wishing you and yours a very happy and blessed New Year!

https://strongmarriages.com/seasonofgiving

As we enter Christmas, the season of giving, would you consider a year-end gift? Today, maybe more than ever, it is incredibly critical to offer hope and healing to couples and their families! When Marriage Mentors meet with Mentee couples, they do just that; meeting with them week after week for at least one year. Your gift of any amount will be DOUBLED! No gift is too small to strengthen marriages now – but even more than that, for generations to come!

Merry Christmas from the staff of Strong Marriages!

https://strongmarriages.com/seasonofgiving

This year was difficult for everyone and even more for struggling marriages! With Marriage Mentors by their side, married couples and their families can have help and experience hope. Give to train more Marriage Mentors to help more couples!

When you give, you will know in your heart that you helped someone in need. And that makes the gift priceless!

YOUR generosity will impact MORE marriages! Make a difference by giving tools to more couples. Your gift is doubled TODAY up to $25,000.

By GIVING NOW, couples can learn how to exhibit the love and forgiveness that strengthens their marriage and provides attachment and security for their children.

What can hurting couples do to make things better? Where do they go for help, trustworthy, effective help that changes lives forever? Where would you send the hurting couples you know?

A few months ago, Mentors in one of our partnering churches (who are also former Mentees) called for information regarding Marriage Mentoring for a young couple they knew seeking help to save their marriage!

Our response: “Unfortunately, there is no Strong Marriages’ mentoring program available anywhere in the area of Ft Hood, Texas!” This husband who serves our country and his wife needed help and wanted Mentors, but there are no Mentors in their area.

Sadly, we have to give this heartbreaking response often! We believe this wouldn’t be the case if marriage mentoring became a traditional church ministry. Please make this ministry available to every couple looking for Marriage Mentors!

They need you!

Working with you to help more couples experience meaningful and rewarding marriages!

Lynne and Dewey Wilson, Ph.D.

Christmas is about everyone celebrating the birth of Christ, our Savior!

WIVES

Wives make sure you are taking time to rest so you, too, can celebrate the true meaning of Christmas.

HUSBANDS

Husbands realize you and your wife view a lot of things differently, including possibly how and with whom Christmas should be celebrated. Living with your wife in an understanding manner honors God and can certainly add enjoyment for the entire family during the holidays.

https://www.strongmarriages.com/givingtuesday

We know marriage is difficult, but we believe having a strong marriage is worth the work!

#GivingTuesday takes place on December 1, 2020 — a day of generosity to transform communities around the world. EARLY GIVING NOW OPEN!

We all have gifts to give. Let YOUR gift impact marriages around the country and the world.

WIVES

Even though we look forward to connecting with loved ones, our task list can still seem ever-growing. Tidying up plans, cleaning, baking, and cleaning again can be exhausting!

This year, be willing to accept help from others — even when it might not exactly be what you expect or want it to be. It can be fun for children or friends to join in on the preparations. Be open to those opportunities for help and connection!

HUSBANDS

Husbands, let's proactively look for ways to assist not only our wives but also others around us. Sometimes it will be your hand extended that is just what the person needed.

Don't wait to be asked, but instead, ask what you can do to help. It truly is more blessed to give than receive. We invite you to try it out this holiday season.

HUSBANDS & WIVES

Serve one another in love. Find little things that help your spouse. Maybe it's putting away that pair of shoes or taking out the trash without being asked. No doubt the reward will far outweigh the sacrifice!

We're thankful for the many marriages we've served and the stories of families that are stronger than ever before!

God bless you and your family as you celebrate. Happy Thanksgiving from the staff of Strong Marriages!

Do everything possible on your part to live in peace with everybody. Romans 12:18

Decide that you’ll make an honest attempt to have a positive attitude. Be active in your marriage. Even when it’s not on your top ten list of things to do, be willing to do things together like go for a walk or go see a movie.

https://strongmarriages.com/working-out-your-marriage

Proactively learning positive behaviors and responses, then consistently choosing to implement them, strengthens your marriage.

"But how am I able to understand, without someone to guide me?" Acts 8:31

We are thankful for all the generous gifts of our Supporters on North Texas Giving Day who give to train and support Marriage Mentors to guide Mentee couples to learn and repeat new behaviors. #NTxGivingDay

You may not mentor but you can GIVE to train and equip couples who can. You can outfit Marriage Mentors for battle!

Marriage is hard, even harder now with CoVid shelter-in-place guidelines. Trained Marriage Mentors guide couples to know why they need to work on their marriage, how to do it, and what really works.

Marriage Mentor couples willingly and knowingly choose to get into the messy details of another couple’s marriage. It is not for the faint at heart! It’s not for everyone; but, for those who God has given the passion, it works. They use our Marriage Mentor training, life experiences, and God's word to enrich and restore marriages.

Please GIVE TODAY to strengthen more marriages.

Whatever you consistently rehearse in your mind will ultimately become your reality. So, each time you realize you are focusing on negative thoughts and attitudes, literally envision yourself taking captive those thoughts and attitudes.

Marriages that pray together, stay together.

When couples incorporate prayer into their daily routine, our experience shows the bond between them grows. Praying together, blessing one another, and spending time together in God's Word, and individually, are some of the disciplines Mentors first teach their Mentees before holding them accountable to do them regularly.

Do everything possible on your part to live in peace with everybody. Romans 12:18

When we gain weight, it happens little by little, pound by pound. Yet we want the weight to come off immediately! It’s only when we cut calories and become more active, that we see results - little by little, pound by pound. Likewise, when we make new habits in our marriage, we generally don’t notice a significant impact right away. But just like losing weight, small things done consistently over time can lead to noticeable change for good.

For example, try identifying one positive thing about your spouse each day. Then, work to identify another every day after that. Consider writing them down, because what you record will help you see what a blessing your spouse truly is to you. With consistent effort, you’ll eventually begin automatically assigning positive attributes to your spouse’s words or actions.

https://strongmarriages.com/working-out-your-marriage

Psychologists at the University of Freiburg in Germany wanted to see if expectations on the difficulty of activity can affect how strenuous it feels, so they took 78 adults and plopped them on a half-hour stationary bike.

They discovered those who already thought of themselves as athletic and possessed a positive attitude found the workout easier than participants who considered themselves non-athletic. By definition, an attitude is formed once a person assigns either a positive or negative effect to an evaluation they make of a behavior, event, issue, object, or person.

So, when it comes to your marriage, think of the negative attitudes that challenge and affect you and your spouse the most.

https://strongmarriages.com/working-out-your-marriage

There are immediate benefits to being physically active, and the benefits increase when you are consistently active.

Choosing to make a schedule – even when it’s difficult – will improve your success!

The same applies to marriage. Be active and intentional in scheduling things to do together like going for a walk, riding bikes, and yes, even working out together. Decide before you go to have a positive attitude. Because just like working out, your positive attitude generally makes all the difference in obtaining a successful outcome – or not!

Do everything possible on your part to live in peace with everybody. Romans 12:18

Attitudes form when a person assigns a feeling, good or bad, to something. Attitudes are quietly in the background shaping and guiding our everyday behaviors, pushing us towards the positive assignment and creating dread for unavoidable negative things.
In the context of a marriage relationship, your spouse is keenly attuned to your attitude. And much more than six-pack abs, a positive attitude creates attraction from your significant other. An overall positive attitude also makes you more likely to have the confidence to deal with uncomfortable situations that keep up your relationship's health.

Working hard to have a positive attitude toward your spouse is worth the effort!
Spouses who consistently train themselves to focus on their spouse positively project more confidence and are less likely to react when dealing with a situation negatively. It’s fun to work out together when you have a positive attitude.
