Bob knows it is an honor and a source of joy when his clients share their pain and difficulties with him and allow him to help in their healing. He gains great satisfaction from helping distressed couples turn their unhappy relationships into the harmony and intimacy that God intends for all marriages. A basic principle of Bob’s counseling is summed up by the words of fifth century monk, Abba Amonas, who told everyone who came to him for counsel, “Pay attention to yourself.” Bob believes it is possible for God to work in their lives and experience His healing grace only when people are honest with themselves.
Bob has been married to Doris for 63 years, and together, they have three children, nine grandchildren and five great-grandchildren.
