Breaking Through to Intimacy

by Drs. Ron and Nancy Rockey, Faith For Today

Statistics tell us that in or out of Christian arenas,
marriages are failing nearly as fast as they are occurring

Wives feeling used, husbands feeling rejected. Communication fails as distance and silence move in. Then broken commitments, lost trust, unmet needs, anger internalized or expressed in ways that disrespect, emotional distance moves in, perhaps even divorce and custody battles. Statistics tell us that in or out of Christian areas, marriages are failing nearly as fas as they are occurring.

For "Mr. Nice Christian Guy" and his "Mrs. Trying Hard," the "breakdown" in their relationship became apparent many years into the marriage. It's as if they woke up one morning to the realization that the love they once felt had faded into the distant past. Romance was gone.

Many Christian parents suffer excruciating emotional pain because their grown children have left their church, their home and family or a relationship with God. Prayers and pleadings go unanswered. In some children, bitterness and anger have replaced the innocence and trust which characterized childhood years. Parents who are still raising children, are concerned that they instill right principles, thus preventing emotional trauma.
Most are unaware that Satan's agenda is to destroy children in character forming years, so that he can control them for a lifetime. In this series, the Rockeys explore the most famous of Christ's parables - the story of the Prodigals Son. Participants are called to self-examination and study. The Word of God, inspired writings and sound psychological principles are employed to create life-changing results and hope - Confident Expectation, for the future return of our children.

Ron and Nancy presented the highlights from this series at the Oregon Conference Camp Meeting in the Family Life Center. This video series of 22 presentations (30-minute each) is $395. Order at www.itsfixable.com.
