“No other single force is causing as much measurable hardship in this country as the collapse of marriage.”
– Time Magazine, July 13, 2009

“The reasons for the great number of unsuccessful marriages and broken families are many and often complex… but there is help and there is hope” Let us better equip you with the tools that will help you to experience more joy, more understanding, and more excitement in all of your relationships…


Spiritual Perspective

Protect your Future by Studying your Past

The man said, ‘This is now bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh; she shall be called “woman,” for she was taken out of man. For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and they will become one flesh.’ Genesis 2:23-24

Those who are ignorant of the past are condemned to repeat it. How true this is. Our marriage was not birthed in a timeless vacuum. It is shocking how little we know about our own family history, let alone the family history of our spouse. We understand that a doctor cannot help us without a full examination and a diagnosis that includes a family medical history. He asks a number of questions and administers several tests before prescribing a remedy. In the spiritual realm, it is the Holy Spirit who is the doctor of our souls. All the best inspirational Bible teaching can do us no good if we have not subjected ourselves to the scrutiny and examination of the Holy Spirit.

Hope in His Unfailing Love

Psalm 33:18-22: But the eyes of the Lord are on those who fear him, on those whose hope is in his unfailing love, to deliver them from death and keep them alive in famine. We wait in hope for the Lord; he is our help and our shield. In him our hearts rejoice, for we trust in his holy name. May your unfailing love be with us, Lord, even as we put our hope in you.  We put our hope in a lot of things.  We hope our car will start each morning.  We hope our jobs are secure.  We hope our children make wise choices.  We hope our marriages don’t fail.  It is natural for our hearts to hope–but more often than not, we put our hope in wrong places.  We place our hope in things or people that can and often do fail.  Even knowing this, we continue to hope in that which can disappoint. But take heart…there is One in whom we can place our hope that will never fail us.  We can firmly and confidently place our hope in the God who loves us.  Because his love never fails, it is the only place where we can place our hope and rest securely.  Psalm 33 tells us that the eyes of the Lord are on those who fear Him.  He carefully watches over those whose hope is placed in his unfailing love.  Imagine God looking your way this very moment.  He sees you sitting on your couch or at your desk.  He sees you kneeling in prayer.  He hears your cries for help and is always watching…always at the ready to meet your needs. He... read more


Joshua 24:14-15:  Now fear the Lord and serve him with all faithfulness. Throw away the gods your ancestors worshiped beyond the Euphrates River and in Egypt, and serve the Lord. But if serving the Lord seems undesirable to you, then choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve, whether the gods your ancestors served beyond the Euphrates, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you are living. But as for me and my household, we will serve the Lord.   Each and every day that we draw breath we are faced with hundreds of choices.  Some are simple and somewhat meaningless–what to wear, what to eat, etc.  But some of the choices we make can have a huge impact–either positively or negatively–on our future. And some choices carry an eternal impact.   Choosing to walk in obedience to God’s Word is an ongoing challenge.  It is not something we choose once.  It is a continual process of choosing day in and day out to believe God and act upon his Word over and over again in every circumstance we face.   When we come to faith in Christ we choose to accept his gift of grace and forgiveness and to follow Him.  When we are new in the faith we do not understand the depths of this choice–nor the challenge.   When we choose Christ we acknowledge that He alone is the Master of our lives, and we yield our will to his.  He becomes our Lord.  He becomes our healer and our provider and our source of strength and wisdom.   Then life happens and... read more


2 Corinthians 5:1-5: For we know that if the earthly tent we live in is destroyed, we have a building from God, an eternal house in heaven, not built by human hands. Meanwhile we groan, longing to be clothed instead with our heavenly dwelling, because when we are clothed, we will not be found naked. For while we are in this tent, we groan and are burdened, because we do not wish to be unclothed but to be clothed instead with our heavenly dwelling, so that what is mortal may be swallowed up by life. Now the one who has fashioned us for this very purpose is God, who has given us the Spirit as a deposit, guaranteeing what is to come.   This morning I read passage after passage waiting on the Lord to show me where to land for today’s devotion.  The theme kept repeating itself over and over again as I read various Scriptures and different writer’s devotions. That theme was God’s promise of eternity.   Today is Memorial Day. Today we remember and celebrate those who have sacrificed their lives to protect our freedom…and so we should.  The truth is that every one of those who gave their lives was someone’s child and their death left behind unimaginable heartache for those who loved them.   This day is especially hard for any parent who has lost a child.  We understand the ongoing pain and anguish of such a loss.  Our children fight many battles–wartime battles, cancer battles, drug addiction battles, mental illness battles, and the list goes on.  And often these battles take the lives... read more

Transformed Lives…

I’ve had leadership training in the military. I have a Masters Degree in Global Leadership. I’ve had leadership training for battle and in business but these skills don’t successfully translate as Leadership in the home. You can’t lead in the home the way you lead in battle or business. If you try, it leads to breakdown. In the home, you need to lead from the heart. It wasn’t until I made an investment in my marriage by taking MenSkills that I realized that real leadership is found in serving my family.

– Jerry, MenSkils Graduate

I was about to file divorce paperwork. I had no hope left and I crying out to God for an answer to a failed marriage, then came the MarriageSkills Workshop. We came discouraged and lost and now we are leaving as leaders to pass this on to other couples. Every couple needs to participate the MarriageSkills adventure.

I came in a lot of pain and questioning if my husband could ever love me. I learned so much about what my truth is and why I’ve been stuck and I now have the tools to have a marriage that pursues peace. I am leaving here with a new creation marriage.

Our marriage was dead and now it is ALIVE! We are living out of God’s love for us rather than demanding love from one another!

Attending a seminar, workshop or retreat with TMR will be a life transforming experience that will propel your personal walk with the Lord and your marriage relationship to a new level of fullfillment and fruitfulness. You will be able to immediately encorporate the scriptural truths and apply what you are receiving so that your marriage will be enriched in ways you thought were impossible. You will experience God’s love and refreshing. You will discover areas  that must change, and it may even be painful, but you will also laugh out loud as you see great hope for the future. For us, investing in our marriage by attending the retreats has been like a drink of cool water. Something amazing happens when you make a committment in time away, in finances, in  truly connecting with eachother and with others and sincerely desire to receive and grow. We always  receive so much from the excellent speakers and  teaching, but also from praying and sharing with other couples and just  enjoying being together away from normal life. We have learned much about how to love eachother well  and we are experiencing a unity in our marriage that is  affecting our family and others around us.
