How’s Your Marriage?

We understand marriage is a journey and it’s possible for couples to experience both seasons of thriving and seasons of merely surviving. So whether you’re on the mountain top, feeling stuck, or in the valley of crises––we’re here to help with cultivation, coaching, and counseling.

Cultivation: Keeping a good thing going

From encouraging text or emails, to marriage events and couples retreats, we want to help you cultivate and enjoy your marriage through these three rhythms:

  1. Communicate Daily (10 minutes)
  2. Pursue Weekly (2-4 hours)
  3. Escape Quarterly (8+ hours)

To join our texting service text the word HardinMarriage (one word) to the number 94000 and hit send. We will send you weekly reminders and fun ideas to help you cultivate a great marriage.

Coaching: Learning to thrive

Sometimes you need a marriage coach to move from surviving to thriving. We wholeheartedly recommend coaching from Grace Marriage at Home if you feel stuck and not sure how to move forward. Click this link to get started!

Counseling: Caring through Crisis

Are you in crises mode and not sure if you can stay the course? Do you feel divorce is inevitable but you still believe God can restore? We have pastors and counselors who will explore deep rooted issues and by God’s grace help you restore your marriage. To inquire about counseling email or call (270) 437-4868.
