Subject: The Marriage Challenge Podcast EP15 - Back from the brink
To: Dear Bill <billcoffin68@gmail.com>


 

Dear Bill

Welcome to the latest edition of The Marriage Challenge podcast. This month we are joined by Kate and Harry Benson who talk very candidly about the struggles they experienced in their marriage – struggles which left them facing the prospect of divorce. In this interview, they explain how they managed to pull their relationship back from the brink and are now happier together than they have ever been. 

Whether you are going through a difficult time in your own marriage or have friends or family who are struggling, this is a must-listen. The Bensons’ story offers hope that relationships can be turned around, and that it is possible not just to survive together … but to thrive together.

Best wishes,

The Marriage Support Team

Thanks for sending me this reminder.  I am attaching the handout/slide we use these days with the four essentials.  The 4th one was added by Better Marriages Leadership, recognizing that the mace's implicitly valued this but didn't put it on the essential list in the early writings.  Maybe they would have added it had they been with us longer??

Good to see you a couple of weeks ago.

Fwd: Recovering Origins: A Unique Healing Retreat for Adult Children of Divorce

Recovering Origins: A Unique Healing Retreat for Adult Children of Divorce

Recovering Origins
is a three day retreat at the Saint John Paul II National Shrine that invites participants to move through the broken image of love that appeared to them in their parents’ divorce to their deepest origin and identity as God’s beloved. The retreat gives participants a greater understanding of the wound of divorce and the ways it affects their lives, offers advice about the difficulties concerning love and trust of others, and explains how the Catholic faith, spiritual practices, and the Sacraments are essential to self-knowledge and healing. The retreat begins on Friday, May 1st at 6:30 P.M. and ends on Sunday, May 3rd at 3:30 P.M. Cost per individual is $75 (includes several meals) and space is limited. Scholarships are available upon request. Please note that the retreat neither includes nor requires overnight lodging, but lodging in the area is available on a first-come, first-serve basis for those who would like to purchase it. To register or to request more information please email Daniel Meola at Daniel.Meola@jp2shrine.org.

        My dream is that this retreat will be offered 2-3 times a year or more if needed at the Shrine. I pray we can really start healing the wounds of the culture through this retreat. Please keep it in your prayers.

        If you have any questions about the retreat, then please don't hesitate to email me. Thank you.

Regards,
Daniel Meola

TYRO

Here Are the Details on Our Successful TYRO Programming!

 

TYRO: (Latin, n): an apprentice, novice, or young warrior, someone learning

something new, or founding father.

 

TYRO, our flagship suite of programs, was created and is based on the Tijerina family's personal experience with welfare and incarceration. It is comprised of three components: TYRO Dads, Couple Communication®, and TYRO Job Ethics Training (JET). TYRO is a holistic, multi-faceted character-building program, designed to strengthen individuals and families. It teaches participants how to overcome destructive generational cycles of poverty, incarceration, and dependency.

 

TYRO ADULT PROGRAM SUITE

  • TYRO Dads
  • TYRO Job Ethics Training (JET)
  • Couple Communication

Our TYRO programs offer individuals a clear picture of what responsibility looks like, and how they can achieve success within themselves and their own family.

 

The RIDGE Project's nationally recognized TYRO Programs have yielded the following positive results:

 

Ex-Offender Recidivism
3.28% one-year rate for TYROs! 

 

Fatherhood/Marriage
98.9% of TYRO participants improved in at least one responsible parenting or healthy marriage category!

 

Workforce Development
225 clients placed in jobs generating over $6 million in taxable wages!*
 

Infraction Rate

TYROs are 46.2% less likely to have an infraction than non-TYROs!**

 

*For participants who completed the TYRO program and obtained employment between April 2012 and August 2013. Clients were obtaining employment prior to April 2012, but tracking employment data did not begin until April 2012.

 

**As recently measured at Belmont Correctional Institution.

 

"This project has been very successful in reuniting families, in particular after the fathers leave prison, keeping them home and out of prison. And, to have a successful program that achieves results in that area is absolutey astounding." - Lynn Wachtmann, Former Ohio Senator and State Representative

VIDEO: Conversations on Compassion with Glenn Beck
Compassion is a tool for understanding people who don't look like us or think like us. We are all on a journey, and when we spend time together we realize it is one world and we have to live together in it. We can't judge people by sound bites; ultimately we all want many of the same things: safety, enough food to eat, and the help of others. -Opening remarks by CCARE's Director, Dr. James Doty
