Tim and Rebekah had a life of heartache and brokenness which God used to turn their marriage into a major success story. Even though they both came from dysfunctional homes and brought tremendous baggage into their marriage, they have seen God do a tremendous work of healing in each of their hearts, as well as, their marriage. It is their desire to help couples in the way they were helped through discipleship counseling. After 6 years of a tumultuous marriage, Tim and Rebekah started counseling with a pastor in Fairburn who not only gave them many helpful tools regarding their marriage but more importantly taught them who they were in Christ, how to forgive people from their past and how to grow intimate with not only one another but with their Heavenly Father. They experienced individual healing and growth, as well as a healed marriage.
After seeing the help they received through discipleship counseling they began to seek out training so that they could help other hurting couples. Tim and Rebekah received their training from Grace Ministries International in Marietta, GA. Rebekah completed her internship in 1991 and Tim completed his internship in 1999. Rebekah was on staff with GMI for 8 years.
It is their desire to work with hurting couples and families in whom God sends their way. They have seen much success if a couple is ready and willing to allow God to unveil the real issues at hand and bring healing to hurting hearts. It is exciting to not only watch marriages experience healing but to also watch individuals blossom into the person God intended them to be.
The biggest obstacle to overcome is to stop pointing fingers at one another and to be willing to look at yourself and your contribution to the problem at hand. When two people are willing to work with God on their own issues, the marriage can begin to heal. God has ordained marriage and it is his will for couples to dwell together in unity. After we accept Christ into our lives, he begins a very intentional plan to grow us up in our Christian lives. Many times he uses the difficulties in marriage to conform us into the image of Christ. Through honesty, forgiveness, compromise and compassion God can not only conform your marriage but also conform your life. The GOOD NEWS is you don’t have to figure out how to make your marriage work in your own self strength. You only have to be willing to allow God to make your marriage into the marriage HE would have you to experience. Your job is to merely cooperate with his working.
