Families are only as healthy as the couple. So how important is working on having a stable marriage to lead your family? It is very important. Many of you have not had examples of what a healthy family looks
like. Maybe you grew up in a single parent home, or had an absentee parent, emotionally unavailable parent, or there could have been addiction and abuse present.
We carry our past experiences with us, until we learn to overcome the past messages and
reshape our faulty thinking patterns, beliefs, expectations, the way that we speak, and how we approach relationships through our life skills. We can tear down destructive root systems built upon poor life experiences and establish healthy relationship
skills, communication, conflict resolution, and coping skills, to have successful relationships.
Children are only as healthy as their family, and a family is only as healthy as the couple, and couples are only as healthy as each individual.
The way that you as an individual have developed your patterns of thought, expectations, life, and relationship skills, affect the overall health of your marriage. You need healthy self-image, a sense of self esteem that agrees with how God
sees you, or your marriage relationship is affected. For example, if your spouse has a faulty identity and is insecure and doesn’t like them self then compliments, encouragement, and even love can bounce right off the stronghold wall. Another
possibility is that they may operate in distrust, jealousy, or control. If you have a spouse who won’t talk about difficult issues in the relationship because their coping skill is avoidance, how can you communicate with them? You cannot do healthy conflict
resolution without communication.Communication and conflict resolution skills are required to maintain a happy and healthy relationship.
The Bible is an instruction book that we have received, yet we need a clear understanding through the
clinical counseling process to develop thinking, life, and relationship skills that agree with biblical principles. The best marriage counseling considers that we were created by God as body, soul, and spirit,
with two individuals joined together as one. Couples come together with different past experiences, beliefs, and behaviors. Effective marriage counseling provides lasting solutions, considers the root system that created the presenting
problems, and heals the marriage from the roots up. When you receive marriage counseling at Life Renewal Inc. you will receive this kind of counseling in agreement with biblical principles. You will gain a road map and a check list to identify what
healthy and also destructive behaviors in marriage look like. You will learn tools and develop skills to navigate through your challenges and overcome. All it takes is two people willing to learn and grow, and each individual, the marriage, and your family
can be transformed.
What are you willing to invest to assure a happy, healthy
[twocol_one][/twocol_one]Did you know that the
average wedding today costs around $27,000? That is the average, not the high end. How ludicrous that you would spend that much money for an event, and invest nothing in the success of your marriage. Most people go to only a few sessions of premarital counseling,
often in their church. This will not prepare you with the tools and skills that are needed to navigate through any storm that you may face.
The divorce rate in the church is no different than in the world. So what are we doing wrong?
We are not
focusing on healthy root systems, building solid foundations in thoughts and beliefs that agree with the Bible and not our life experiences, and then learning to move them into the application in our life, and relationship skills.
Premarital counseling that
will increase our chances of success involves more than just a discussion of roles and expectations.
It involves the following:
Looking at each family system you came out of and the beliefs, expectations, and behaviors you adopted
through those experiences.
An understanding of your unique temperament which is the design of your soul is essential. This teaches you the tendencies of what you want and express in many areas:
Casual relationships, deep
relationships, how you take in information in your thinking skills and perceptions, your social interactions, how you handle roles, responsibilities, decision making, your tendencies in communication, assertive and coping skills, how emotional
you are, and so much more.
This is not your personality or your behaviors, but an in-depth tool to teach you about your specific design and needs. This enables you to learn precise marriage skills for your unique strengths and weakness while
interacting with your spouse.
Tangible tools and practical skills to understand the 20 healthy behaviors in relationships, how to assert yourself, communicate, validate each other, and resolve conflicts, without adopting poor behaviors.
Identifying roles, expectations, and boundaries about everything from household chores, finances, sex, children, parenting plans, and other important topics.
If you are willing to spend a year planning your wedding and $27,000 for the
event, are you willing to spend several months investing in your lifetime relationship, resolving problems before they ever happen?
All people have experienced trauma, pain, fear, and rejection; these traumas injure your soul. Many Christians struggle and do not experience the peace, joy, and thankfulness that God desires for
them, and they are unaware of the damage that has occurred in their soul. When you receive your salvation, your soul arrives before the throne in varying degrees of brokenness. Some of you have been beaten down and shattered, while others have
only acquired nicks and bruises.
Trauma, abuse & abandonment are closely linked because they all result in a psychological or emotional disturbance. Your experiences produce messages, and the messages develop into faulty core
beliefs and mental strongholds that direct your expectations, emotions, speech patterns, life, and relationship skills.
“And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what
is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.” Romans 12:2 NKJV
When you experience trauma, abuse, and abandonment it affects your expectations and how you see yourself, and others. These experiences produce messages, and you have
to choose to “not be conformed to this world.” If you agree with the messages from your experiences, adopt faulty thinking and behavioral patterns in response to them, you have been conformed to this world.
If you have been victimized
it does not mean you have to think, live, or respond like a victim. You are an overcomer; every form of damage can be processed and overcome when you don’t allow it to taint your tomorrow with fear, negative expectations, pain, or rejection.
Trauma is not necessarily abuse, but all abuse is trauma. Trauma is a wound formed by sudden physical injury, or an emotional shock that jars the mind and emotions, and can produce lasting damage to the psychological development of an individual.
Everyone has experienced trauma through life occurrences. Trauma can be identified in several areas: physical, accidental injuries, illnesses, psychological, and emotional traumas.
Abuse is the improper, misuse of an individual. It is a misuse
of authority. When you are handled by another person or group wrongly, you have been mistreated and experienced harm, you have endured abuse. Abuse can be verbal, emotional, psychological, physical, sexual, or spiritual. Most people do not know
how to identify the more subtle forms of abuse that are epidemic in our society. Often when you feel like the rug has been pulled out from under you, you feel confused and disoriented, you receive double messages, when you feel disrespected, controlled
and manipulated, unheard, invalidated, and your needs aren’t meet, you have experienced the more subtle forms of abuse.
All abuse systems will use anywhere from blatant, to subtle forms of manipulation and control. Abuse ranges from
less severe to extreme. All abuse damages you in your thinking, expectations, self-image, life, and relationship skills. The damage done to your soul is directly proportionate to your experiences. No abuse is to be swept under the rug, because any
and every destructive event harms your soul.
Abandonment is another form of abuse that is not from an action, but from a lack of action. Most people don’t realize that this is abuse, but neglect is a form of abuse. If your needs were left
unmet from childhood, or anytime in your adult relationships, you emerge with pain in your soul. When someone is emotionally unavailable, does not communicate, withholds information, support, comfort, or affection, it is abandonment –
an abuse from a lack of action.
In addiction systems there is always abuse. The person who is abusing a substance or event will do whatever is necessary to protect that primary relationship and will sacrifice others to meet their need. The result
is that their primary relationships will be left with unmet needs, a lack of safety, honesty, or availability to be emotionally present consistently, which is not possible as the person progresses into addiction.
Every person should learn
the types of abuse and their characteristics, the many types of verbal abuse, the 20 healthy behaviors in relationships, and other tools that help to identify when abuse is present and give you a name to identify it further. Learn what healthy looks
like before you find yourself in an abuse system. If you question if you are experiencing a form of abuse, if you feel uncomfortable, or are in a painful relationship please seek help with our online

Receive Addiction Counseling | Addictive and Compulsive Behaviors
First let me define addiction:
Addiction is an unhealthy relationship with a substance or event.
may be alcohol, drugs, porn, Facebook, gambling, eating, exercise or a myriad of other things that can fall into this definition. You use them to cope, feel better, meet a need, and you can develop obsessive and compulsive behaviors.
at a very basic level with you seeking to change your mood. Some people may abuse substances or events during painful seasons, and then turn back to healthier ways of meeting needs. However, if a pattern is formed you are susceptible to developing an addictive
relationship with a substance or event.
No matter what type of addiction, abuse progresses with an unhealthy relationship to the substance or event, creating faulty thought patterns, core beliefs, and life skills.
The abuser then becomes dependent and believes their needs are being met by the substance.
You and I have ten needs that we seek to meet. However, life experiences have taken their toll and you have fallen short of fully receiving these needs. You do
what you feel you have to do to meet your needs. You react to your environment and produce thought patterns, core beliefs, life, and relationship skills, to maneuver your way through life. If these are defined by unhealthy ways of meeting your needs you are
going to have negative consequences.
The very nature of addiction forms a bond with a substance or event and it becomes your primary relationship. You go to the unhealthy relationship with the substance or event which replaces healthy bonds in
human relationships. It affects your self-image and every area of your life, and relationships. You begin to protect your addiction system to cope, find fulfillment, meet your needs, and isolate from anyone who has the potential to expose what they see.
To receive help from addictions you need other people in order to be accountable and receive support. Then you can succeed in understanding and overcoming this addictive system. To believe you can do it all on your own is a protection
device to remain in your patterns.
Professional counselors, programs, and support groups are designed to help you learn and break free of the patterns. It is in forming these relationships, learning new ways of thinking, and meeting needs, that
the isolation is broken and you can begin to develop meaningful relationships that can replace the relationship with the substance or event.

Men and women were designed by God as sexual creatures, and your sexuality was formed since your infancy. You received messages about male and female relationships, love, and sex, from watching the people
around you. How your parents taught you about your body parts, if they used anatomically correct names, or nick names for male and female genitals. How were you bathed, taught about modesty, and much more that promoted messages that formed your sexuality.
Did you see healthy displays of affection between your parents, or did you see multiples divorces, boyfriends, and girlfriends from the adults in your life? When you watched television with your dad did he make comments about women, and their
bodies? Did mom ignore pornography in the house? Did someone inappropriately touch you; did you experience any form of sexual abuse? Did anyone hear your voice, or were you silenced, and no one knew or responded to these harmful experiences.
These are just a few of the types of life events that you may have had in childhood that gave you messages of what “normal” looked like.
Did you receive messages that screamed “this is just what men do,” or “this
is all that women can expect?” These messages are what formed the foundation of your sexuality. We live in a culture where sexual addiction is epidemic, sexual confusion is commonplace, and sexual abuse is rampant. Is it any wonder that
many people seek help with all forms of sexual twisting?
We were all born into a sinful world, a uniquely created soul designed perfectly by a God who has, “…plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and
a future.” (Jeremiah 29:11)
It is not your design that is the problem; it is not a gene or your DNA that turned your path. If that were so how could God hold you accountable and tell you that you “can do all things through Christ
who strengthens me. (Philippians 4:13)
You have experienced the affects of developing in a sinful world that has created a twisting in your body, soul, and spirit. The word iniquity in Hebrew means to bend or twist. That is what has happened
to all mankind in areas of thinking, beliefs, expectations, and behaviors. This includes in your sexuality.
Well, here is the good news. Anything that a sinful world has twisted in your thinking, expectations, or behaviors, can be untwisted.
I have counseled thousands of people and have many, many, people in recovery from all forms of sexual addictions that are free to have healthy and happy relationships without bondage.
You can overcome any challenge, but you need to pull out
the root system that laid the foundation. Then you can succeed without a constant struggle for life. You need tools to apply this truth to your life. God desires you to live your life to the fullest and He created sex to be a blessing in the context
that He designed it to be enjoyed.
It is important to know what codependency and people pleasing looks like in your daily life; then you can effectively identify if you are operating in these patterns. Codependency can be defined as a pattern of thinking, coping, life, and relationship
skills, where you allow another person’s behaviors to affect you. You become focused on saving, fixing, comforting, enabling, protecting, and rescuing them; you are consumed by what they think and how they feel. The behaviors of codependency include:
walking on eggshells, avoiding confrontation and disapproval, making decisions based on emotions that you may know are wrong, and shielding others from consequences. If you have identified any of these patterns in your life, there are counseling services available to you and your family. counseling servicescounseling
Codependent behaviors are a response to the behaviors of an individual who is causing pain and stress in any area including the workplace, family, school, friends, or church. Most of us operate in some areas of our life with the traits
of codependency, as it is a challenge for many of us to not be people pleasers, but a God pleaser. Many people make codependency a coping skill pattern that controls their life and affects their relationship with self, others, and
Codependent behaviors were developed to survive your life experiences. They were created as a means of self protection and formed faulty thinking patterns and core beliefs that drove you into behaviors that may sabotage your life and relationships.
These coping skills are destructive to the person operating in codependency, and to the person they are enabling. You must learn how to say “no,” “I refuse,” to the individual who is displaying unhealthy life, and relationship skills,
blaming, manipulating, controlling, using, and abusing you. You must establish boundaries and allow natural consequences in place of rescuing.
Codependency allows and supports bad, unhealthy, and ungodly behaviors. You may be codependent with
your parents, husbands/wives, bothers/sisters, girlfriends/boyfriends, children/adult children, friends, employers/coworkers, and church leaders/members. These behavior patterns are founded on fear based thinking and you become hyper vigilant to hold everything,
and everyone together while protecting yourself. Your trust is not grounded in God when you operate in a fear based thinking patterns, striving to control circumstances, and people.
When you operate in codependency you do not focus on God, but put yourself
and others before Him. Thus, you operate in a form of idolatry and remove God from His throne, while placing yourself in the driver’s seat. You do this erroneously to self-protect and meet your needs in unhealthy and ungodly ways. This is how you depend
on self… taking God off His throne; you place yourself on the throne to solve every problem and be in control of situations.
God created us to need each other, to be in relationship with Him and each other. As a society we are dependent on each
other to survive. However, there is a huge difference between healthy dependency on others and codependency. We depend on others who are close to us to accomplish goals in our lives, but when we are codependent we are enabling unacceptable behaviors in order
to appease a person who is causing harm or disruption in order to avoid being rejected. All of the characteristics of codependency are contrary to the Word of God. Many Christians confuse operating in grace, mercy, and forgiveness with a lack of boundaries,
consequences for actions, and discernment.
Codependency is a learned behavior pattern that is sin. When you have faulty core beliefs based on fear, faulty identity, lack of faith, self protection, idolatry, and people pleasing, you think and operate
in ways that are not in agreement to the Word of God. You must tear down the faulty core beliefs that drive your emotions, speech patterns, and life skills so that you can be transformed.
When you operate in codependency you strive to fulfill
your unmet needs. In codependency you try to fill your emotional voids with pleasing and rescuing people and saving others from their behaviors and choices. This in turn medicates your inner feelings of low self-worth, loneliness, fear, and is
your attempt to get your needs met. You operate in a fear of rejection and a fear of abandonment, and do whatever you deem necessary to meet your needs. The problem is your emotional voids are not met by codependent traits; it is nothing but a
Healthy relationships will never come from unhealthy behaviors and life skills. The answer is that you should seek God first to heal and meet your needs, and then everything else that you desire will be added to you through thinking and
living in agreement with biblical principles. Codependency can be overcome by identifying the root thought processes and changing them. Then you can apply new life and relational skills for successful living.

Do you look at a magazine cover and say, “I wish I looked like
that, and maybe then I’d be happy?” Do you measure your self-worth based on how well you perform educationally, in your career, personal finances, or by what possessions you have acquired?” We are often our own worse critics and focus on
the negative about ourselves; no one will judge you as harshly as you judge yourself.
The family, community, and peer groups where you resided have affected your self-image. The culture and even the media gave you messages from the community. The people
that you choose to associate with either have raised you to a higher level, or pulled you down. You have continued to receive messages from your childhood to the present day. These messages have shaped your identity and your personal self-image.
the family message was “meet the standards” to gain love and acceptance. This message developed into a performance based mentality that governs your core beliefs, and defines your value as based on how much you have earned and achieved. This type
of message can be received in many different ways. For example, maybe you had a father who was muscular and athletic, but sports just weren’t your forte.’ Did he belittle your efforts in academics or the arts? The message you received was that
if you are not like him and succeed at sports, then you just do not measure up.
Perhaps you did not have your needs meet, and the people in your life were emotionally unavailable. The message that you received was that you just weren’t good enough,
you had to settle for crumbs, or there is something innately wrong with you. These are just a few of thousands of messages you could have received to develop a poor self-image. You have likely internalized and embraced these messages without even recognizing
them for years and years.
From these messages you developed thought, speech, life skills, and relationship patterns, which put you out of alignment with God’s Word, and the value and worth He places in you. He created you with unique talents and
a perfect design to fulfill what He has planned for your life, if you will but agree with Him.
Your perception of your core identity determines how you think, how you carry yourself in daily life, the level of joy or pain you experience, how you treat
other people and expect to be treated, and how you respond to family, friends, and even God. Many of you focus on the outer layers and don’t see yourself as God sees you.
Your true identity is not based on the outer layers of your appearance,
education, accomplishments, finances, and possessions; it is based on who God says that you are in Him. When you look up at the mirror on the ceiling, God’s perspective reflects back to you. It displays your true identity and the perfect design in you.
The root systems of faulty self-image can and must be identified, torn down, and replaced. When you begin to recognize and reject the faulty messages that created your view of self, you can change your thinking, find a renewed sense of worth, and see yourself
as God sees you.
Your past and present experiences do not have to define your today or tomorrow. I teach you tangible tools and practical skills to apply daily to your challenges in order to break the everyday patterns that hinder you. Learn

LGBT (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender) laws if enacted will produce the following and must be defeated. The term “Human
Rights Ordinance” is a hoax. This is a preferential treatment law. It grants superior rights to LGBTs, while taking away rights from others. The morality and the social fabric of the Community will decline.
Any church that opens its doors
to non-members is a “Public Accommodation” and not exempt. Organizations with a religious mission to feed the homeless or arrange adoptions are exposed to liability for professing their beliefs.
Men alleging a female gender will be free
to enter women and children’s, dressing, locker, shower and restrooms in “Public Accommodations” – an unstoppable crime opportunity which will be exploited by sexual predators.
“Women Only” facilities will cease to
exist. In some schools boys will be allowed to enter girls’ dressing and shower areas, to expose themselves and to view girls in all stages of undress.
Rational concerns for modesty, privacy, and safety will be re-categorized as “discrimination”
under the new (and far from settled) concept of “gender identity.” The rights of the self-styled “female” mean everything, and the rights to privacy, modesty and safety of the many women and children mean nothing.
expression” is protected, so will be on display in public places and some schools, undermining the moral and religious training and values of children.
The law governs facilities in all nurseries and preschools, and in any school or college including
private religious schools if they utilize the least public asset.
Businesses will NOT be told what “gender expressions” they must tolerate to avoid prosecution – that is determined by the daily whim of the official “victim”.
So, owners will be sitting ducks for bankrupting lawsuits.
The 15-employee, small business exclusion will no longer apply in many cases, since many businesses are subject to the law as “Public Accommodations”. The law will curb Free
Speech and Religious Speech against LGBT lifestyles. It will compel government to punish those opposed to LGBT lifestyles.
Anyone who dares express an anti-LGBT conviction (even one based on religious belief) in a consensual conversation is guilty of
discrimination, if “discrimination” is perceived by someone overhearing it.
Businesses will be forced to provide services that ultimately support and promote LGBT lifestyles which owners may oppose on religious grounds. Owners will
suffer more lawsuits and government intrusion. One “rights” complaint could easily exceed $20,000 in legal fees and costs, and produce financial ruin.
LGBTs will receive preferences in hiring, layoffs and in housing disputes.
