Do any of these apply to you?:

  • Are you or your spouse going through a faith transition?

  • Do you feel like you can’t talk to your spouse about your faith transition because it will cause too much pain and sorrow or they just don’t get it?

  • Are you confused why your spouse who was a faithful church member for so long is now experiencing doubt?

  • Are you disappointed that your spouse does not seem to understand you or even accept you anymore?

  • Do you feel betrayed by your spouse?

  • Do you feel like you did everything right, how can this be happening?

  • Does it feel like your marriage may not be able to survive the pressure and stress of the faith transition?

Coaching is perfect for you if :

  • One of you is going through (or gone through)  a faith transition.

  • The faith transition has generated changes and challenges in your marriage.

  • You both have different beliefs and it is causing friction in your relationship

  • You love your spouse but always seem to be annoyed or frustrated by them.

  • You know (or hope) this is something the two of you can get through, you just need some help.

About Coaching:

Coaching is designed to help mixed faith marriages. I specialize in helping  members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Especially where one spouse is going through a faith transition and one spouse remains a faithful member of the mormon church. This is called a mixed faith marriage or intrafaith marriage.

A mixed faith  marriage can prove challenging and stressful. That can be compounded for couples that have been taught mixed faith marriages are not desirable.

While it is true there are unique challenges to a mixed faith marriage, it does not mean your marriage is doomed or not capable of being wonderful.

I believe that your marriage is worth the effort and can in fact be stronger and better because of the faith transition.

Coaching is done over the phone so it can easily fit into your schedule.

Not too long ago I faced a similar dilemma in our marriage.

Brooke’s Story

A few years ago I decided I wanted to pursue a career in law. Years ago I had graduated from law school but together we decided that we would have kids and I would be a stay at home mom. However, over the years  that choice did not settle well with me and I wanted to choose again and pursue a career. However, the guilt and fear I experienced from even considering this choice was paralyzing. I started to realize the messaging I had received and believed all my life was causing me an immense amount of suffering. This among numerous other experiences caused me to question my mormon beliefs and ultimately led to a break from the church.  After mustering a immense amount of courage I decided to talk to Daniel about my shifting beliefs. Daniel freaked out. To be fair, if the roles would have been reversed, I would have freaked out more. Conversations became painful and less frequent. Uncertainty and fear became the norm.

Then we learned some tools from coaching and were really able to reconnect and turn things around. In fact, we were able to connect on a deeper level than ever before. The best part was  being able to feel safe again with one another and feel that we were on the same team again.

Daniel’s Story

Brooke and I meet in a singles ward.  We both had graduated from BYU, gone on missions, and were attending church, FHE, the temple and institute together every week.  We were eventually married in the Detroit temple.  Years later, I was enjoying the type of a family that I had always imagined.  Church and children were the center of attention for us as parents. Then things started to change.  Brooke started to do and say things that confused and frustrated me.  It was a confusing time as we seemed to grow farther apart and more emotionally distant.  Even when Brooke open up about her new thoughts and beliefs, I had a hard time “believing” what I was hearing.  I though or perhaps wished that this was a “phase”, or that she was having a rough time but it would go back to normal.   I felt she was not thinking this through or not honoring me and the kids.   I also felt like I had failed as a Mormon father as my wife’s new attitude toward the church started to influence the children and changed the dynamics of the family.

After months of discomfort and confusion, we learned some tools that were life changing and relationship saving. Those tools helped us talk through difficult issues like tithing and Sunday attendance. They helped us redefine our marriage in ways to support us both. These tools helped us recommit to each other and our marriage like we never had before.
