Recognized and approved by hundreds of pastors and marriage therapists throughout the U.S., Cornerstone's nationally known, distinctive Christian marriage intensive counseling program was developed by a team of professionals who have been working with distressed marriages for over 25 years.

Different Help for Different Problems

Marital problems can range from minor to serious or to crisis-level, with each requiring a different kind of help. Help is available for all levels of marital problems, and it's important to understand that regardless of what kinds of problems a couple may be having, that help is available at all levels. Even the most seemingly hopeless of situations can be turned around for the better. To understand how wide-ranging marital difficulties can be, let's look at several couples to help us understand.

 

Refreshing Long Term Marriages

David and Jan have been married for 12 years and have 3 children. They sometimes disagree about how to discipline their kids. They also find themselves arguing more frequently about finances and aren't communicating like they used to.  Date nights have been waning lately and have been few and far between. They used to  enjoy being together and having fun whenever they had time to be together. But with all the demands of children and finances, they were spending less time together.

They recently came to the realization that they need to refresh their marriage. After examining several options, some of which were very costly, they decided to see a marriage coach at their church. After 4 or 5 sessions, they begin to find success implementing the tools they developed while in the 6-week coaching program.

Why Traditional Marriage Counseling is Ineffective For Marriages in Crisis

Suppose you had a critical medical condition that required 5-6 hours of major surgery and 6-8 weeks for recovery.  Do you think the doctor would recommend that you come in for an office visit, for an hour, “once-a-week,” for 12-16 weeks until your surgery was done and you recovered? Of course not! 

Why not? Because if you're hurting and in serious pain, you're in  critical condition.   Time is of the essence!  A critical condition requires intensive care where you'll get immediate attention and care. This is what provides for a speedier recovery before the condition becomes worsened. 

It's the same with marriages. If there's been a breakdown, whether due to a slow-deteriorating condition, a long-term disorder, or a serious marital crisis, then time truly is of the essence. Immediate care can help you avoid further damage or even worse, a marital breakdown. Intensive care provides immediate, uninterrupted care that can help a couple achieve speedier recovery.

That's why Cornerstone's Christian Marriage Counseling Intensive is so effective. It provides "intensive care" for hurting marriages and allows couples needing urgent care to get the "major surgery" they need and deal with the painful issues to get the "major surgery" done.  Once this "major surgery" has been accomplished, couples are able to achieve a more thorough and speedy recovery over a 2-night/3-day, Marriage Intensive Weekend . ....[Read More...]

What A New Beginning Marriage Intensive Retreat is NOT

It is NOT the mere "cookie-cutter" lecture-type marriage seminar, nor a "Do it Yourself" DVD production that you watch at home. Neither is it a large conference-type program where you sit all weekend with a big crowd of hundreds of people, take a lot of notes and then go home and try to do the work of repairing your relationship all on your own.

Perhaps you've tried these, and still not found answers?  Don't give up hope. We can assure you, here at Cornerstone through our process you'll find caring, Christian marriage counseling that's practical, biblical, and effective with an 87.3% success rate.  [Read More...]

 

Advanced Relationship Issues

Unfortunately, we're not born with the relationship skills and know-how to create a healthy, happy marriage. Relationship skills are learned, and most of the time the people we learned them from were usually our parents, who were likely lacking relationship skills too. Consequently, along the way, most of us have have picked up some dysfunctional ways of relating that have become obstacles to building the healthy relationships we'd like to have. That is why some Christian marriage counseling can be ineffective for some situations and good for others. Although, as you will see, marriage counseling is not effective for all marital situations. In fact, you'll see how for some, it can prove to be very detrimental.

Developing and sustaining a healthy, happy marriage requires at least three tasks:

(1) That a couple knows what a healthy marriage looks like, (2) That they possess the key skills, knowledge and attitudes necessary to attain to it, and (3) That a couple identifies and deals with obstacles that may be blocking them from achieving the healthy, happy relationship they desire.

Fortunately these three tasks are teachable. Christian marriage counseling has proven effective in helping couples achieve success in these areas. Yet, there are many husbands and wives who go their entire lives without ever realizing this.

Like many, they never learn how to overcome the unproductive attitudes and unhealthy behaviors within themselves that lead to mediocre relationships and unhealthy marriages. Many know they want something different in their marriage, but just don't know what is, whether or not it's achievable, and if so - HOW to go about achieving it...more.
