Hello Dr. Hawkins,
I feel like Rob and I had our honeymoon in Paulsbo (I told him yesterday and again this a.m. that I wished it was our wedding day today because I would have loved so much to have gotten married feeling so close (I’ll settle for (with continued work) a marriage feeling so close). I feel like my husband and I fell in love all over again (not intended to sound cheesy:).
I just couldn’t have imagined how that would happen given the feelings and the fights and the yelling that had so come to characterize our relationship. At the end of the ‘foreward’ in the book you so kindly gave us, you end by saying that you hope to be a good steward of the gifts He’s given you (you were much more eloquent:). I can’t imagine how blessed you must feel and honoured you must be to help God mend, heal, and bring back love to the sacrament of marriage. We’ve been speaking to one another today, using the tools and words you’ve taught us.
Thank you for sharing your gifts and giving us gifts that we can use to keep our marriage healthy, strong and the way God intended. I look forward to sharing this information and passing along hope as I come across friends and family members who feel like things in their marriage may never change. As you know, family is the foundation of this world. Thank you for strengthening and with His gifts, saving families.
From the bottom of our hearts, thank you.
Claudelle & Rob
Hello Dr. Hawkins,
I wanted you to know that we are doing SO MUCH better.
Your therapy with us was life changing. We are actually living a married life that we have never experienced before. It is better than it has ever been. I think the biggest life changers were working to help each other be safe, and to nurture each other instead of hurting each other.
I really have so much gratitude for your help. I was at the end of my rope, and you really helped me. I just wanted to express my gratitude. I am doing so much better.I know Steve has referred a few couples to you, and you have another booked.
It’s amazing what God is bringing into our lives. I got a call from a young married lady I know just yesterday, who needs to talk. Maybe you will meet them…Anyway its a blessing for you but you might think we have a lot of crazy friends! Well- we were one of them!May the Lord bless all you do. Please pass this on to Terry if you want to.
Thanks again and maybe we will see you around your neck of the woods soon. We LOVE the Northwest.
Patty & Steve
