Marriage Counselling

Well, John is back. We've decided to go to marriage counselling. I hope and pray for our sakes and our children's sake that this works. It's going to be hard for me. I've got a little bit of a complex about sitting in front of a stranger - divulging all of my inner most thoughts and them judging guiding me on how to fix it - but for my family, I would do anything :)


  1. That sounds like a good idea. My friend did marriage counseling and swears by it. I wish you luck. I don't like the idea of counseling myself, I would do it for my marriage. You both may gain more prospective on your situation.

  2. i'm glad to hear he is back. i've been praying for you (although we technically don't know each other... isn't blogging a wonderful thing?)

    i hope you guys find a great counselor. i think just the fact that you both are willing to go is the first step. hang in there!

  3. I'm glad you're both willing to give it a try! Will be praying for good things to come from this for your family. **Hugs**

  4. Hi Jennifer. I came over because you commented on my boy post. And I just wanted to thank you...but your blog seems vaguely familiar like I may have been over here...probably on a Thursday from one of Mama Kat's assignments.

    Anyway, I just wanted to encourage you with the counseling. Sister, it's worth it. I've been to a counselor and I was a good manipulator. I would leave there knowing their whole life story. I didn't think they could offer me anything.

    But one day (YEARS later and much damage done to myself and those around me) I wised up and realized that I could use the help that was being offered. And it went well. I have never had marriage counseling...although we have gone to talk to our pastor when there have been things we couldnt handle on our own about our family.

    They won't judge and they've heard it all. Be open to the experience.

    It's going to be hard work to repair your marriage...I dont know what's going on, but I know that.

    In the end IT IS WORTH IT. I'll be praying for you. Please visit my blog and update me occasionally.

  5. I am new to your blog and haven't searched around enough yet to know what happened but I wish you both luck. I hope that you are both willing to save your marriage.

  6. Thanks for your sweet comment on my blog. Kids are the best prescription when we need a good laugh. Sorry to hear that things are tough for you right now. I have been in your position, except my husband didn't come back and wasn't willing to do counseling. So take advantage of this opportunity and give it your all. My prayers and thoughts are with you.

  7. Thanks for stopping by my blog today:) Now I've read most of yours and feel like I know you. I will certainly keep you in my prayers. I admire your willingness to share your hurts. It means there are a lot of people praying for you. You may never know the hosts of people who are lifting you up right now!

  8. aww...good luck...I hope all is going well :)
    that is very good ya'll are doing that...too many people just give up...
