Are you Christian, feeling isolated, not knowing were to turn for support? It is essential that you and your spouse understand God's plan and purpose for your Marriage.  As believers you are faced with an increasing amount of obstacles that get in the way of your spiritual growth.  Turning to God and making Jesus the center of your marriage is the best place to start.  Evening sessions are available with Barbara Padron, LMFT.
