NEW! Marriage Challenge Bootcamp: a 14-day journey to more peace about your marriage & in your heart   

Have you ever felt like this:
I will be lonely forever.
I’m the only one trying and I’ve tried everything.
There’s no point, it’ll never get better / change.
My husband doesn’t: acknowledge, apologize, think there’s anything wrong; hard to work with that.
I’m a horrible wife.
My husband is an — (abuser, addict, adulterer, a–…).
I’m exhausted; I’m done trying.
I have zero hope that I’ll ever have a good marriage.
I’m this-close to being legit done.
I will never be loved.

Sometimes we can change our circumstances; but sometimes we cannot. And when we cannot change something that is frustrating, we must, absolutely must, change how we think about that circumstance, lest we remain stuck, go a bit crazy or become bitter.

a marriage assessment tool
7 teachings to encourage you

NEW! Needs: What are Those?

Women are givers (understatement).
Women give and give and give, sometimes pouring out more than we have to pour, amirite?

Do you resonate with any of these statements?

I feel like I’m always bending over backwards to meet the needs of others and being selfish if I address my own needs.

I’m always suppressing my own needs, putting others before myself in everything…and I mean everything.

I give and give and give with no reciprocity. How does Jesus want me to give? And my own needs, what are those?

In this five-day intensive mini-course – Needs: What are Those? – we will tackle the following:

Am I allowed to need?
What are my needs?
What does Scripture mean when it says that God will supply all my needs?
How do I balance meeting others’ needs with my own self-care?
Am I too needy?

You will receive the following:
a needs assessment
daily teaching, Scripture, prayer, reflection exercise and next step

NEW! Healing & Wholeness

You have been through something difficult.
I am not saying this as if I’m a psychic.
I am saying this because every human being has been through at least one difficult thing in their lives.

But I have a feeling that you have been through more than just one hard thing, haven’t you?

And I also have a feeling that the pain lingers and leaves you wondering if you’ll ever feel normal again, ever feel better again, ever feel whole.

In this 7-day intensive mini-course – Healing & Wholeness – we will tackle the following:

Why do I feel so broken?
Why am I so comfortable with pain?
What have I done?
Why do hurt people hurt people?
What do I do when I feel without options?
Is it time to get help?
Why can’t I be healed right now?

You will receive a daily teaching, Scripture, prayer, reflection exercise and next steps.

Decision Time (formerly called Should I Stay or Should I Go?)

So you’re married. And it’s hard. Like, it’s harder than you thought it would be. Maybe there’s a lot of fighting. Or he’s been unfaithful. Or there’s an addiction. Or abuse. Or pornography. Or utter boredom. Or you’re roommates at best.

And in the quietness of your mind or in the privacy of your journal or in the confidential office of your counselor or across the table from your best friend, you find yourself asking, “Should I stay or should I go?”

Check out three things to stop doing right now in your hard marriage. 

You’re exhausted. You’re confused. You might be fighting back anxiety or depression or both. And you don’t know what to do anymore but you know that it’s time to do something.

I’m here to help. You are not alone. I have walked the road you’re walking. You can go here to read my story.

Over the course of five weeks, we will tackle topics such as:
grounds for divorce
your role in your marriage
your emotions
your reactions
ways you can get tangible help

You will receive:
weekly readings
weekly journaling exercises
and weekly webcast teaching all from someone who has been there

Here’s what Pat said about the course, “The course was really helpful in providing concrete ways to re-think how I was approaching things.”

Disclaimers:
1) I WILL NOT TELL YOU WHETHER YOU SHOULD OR SHOULD NOT DIVORCE YOUR HUSBAND. THAT IS BETWEEN YOU AND GOD ALONE. But if you give yourself over to the process of digging into the readings, journaling exercises and webcasts, I do promise you that you will be thinking clearer and will feel better by the end of our time together.
2) If you are simply unhappy in your marriage, this course is not for you. Read [here](https://elisabethklein.com/2015/12/03/should-i-stay-married-or-can-i-leave/).  But if there are things like adultery, addiction, or abuse, let’s get to work.
3) If you or your children are unsafe, you must set up a [personal safety plan](http://cscaa.com/safetyplan.pdf) and ask someone for help.

Looking for Mr. Right

You were married. But for whatever reason, you are no longer. And that was a nightmare to walk through, no matter the circumstances. But time has gone by. (LOTS AND LOTS of time, I hope!) And you’re thinking you just might be ready to dip your toe back into the dating pool.

However…

Dating post-divorce is WEIRD and CONFUSING and FUN all at the same time. (Did I mention weird?!?)

It can be fraught with crazy feelings and questions, with triggers and fears, and with some sweet, sweet moments.

But how do you know what you’re even looking for?
And how do you find a man once you know what you’re looking for?
And how do you protect your heart AND open your heart all at the same time?
And… and… and…

Oh, girl, I’ve got you covered! Because trust me…dating these days ain’t what it used to be! But I have been there and made it to the other side! In fact, here are three things you can now to start preparing your heart for dating again.

In this five-week e-course, we will cover the following:
It’s Not About a Man
Future Man
Past Relationship Triggers & Fears
Am I Ready to Date?
There are Good Men Out There

Marriage Methods

Your marriage is difficult. As in, much more than the average marriage. There might be a lot of arguing, a lack of connection and sex, perhaps abuse or addiction.

I’m guessing you cry a lot. Or, on the other hand, you’ve emotionally shut down because you’re just so tired of trying. You throw yourself into your children, your work, your hobbies. Or, you’re barely able to function because of the circumstantial depression that has settled over your life.

Things have not turned out the way you’d hoped, to say the least. And you don’t know what to do. (I know all of this, by the way, because this was my life for almost twenty years.)

But, you plan to stay. For now at least, you are not going anywhere.  Did you know that you can stay poorly OR you can choose to stay well? Yes, you have a choice.

Here are your options:
You can keep doing what you’re doing, expecting different results one of these days.
Or, you can change how you look at your situation and how you respond to it.

Start here by looking at three small steps you can work on now.

If you’re ready to move towards healing and wholeness and, yes, even hope, let’s spend twelve weeks together. Let’s learn how to stay well.

Topics we’ll cover:
what is my role?
self care (physical/mental)
self care (emotional/relational)
self care (spiritual)
grieving
anger
forgiveness vs trust
communication
God defines me not my marriage
our identity
newness
thriving vs surviving

You’ll receive:
weekly lessons
weekly journaling exercises
monthly webcast teachings
tools to help you think more clearly, act more maturely and feel so much better about yourself, despite your difficult and painful circumstances

Meaningful Life

One of my clients said to me recently, I know how to live. I know how to do laundry and make dinner and get myself to work. But I don’t know how to live a life.

After our session, I texted her. I told her I couldn’t stop thinking about what she said and that I had written this down in my notebook:

I don’t know how to live an {meaningful, authentic, non-reactionary, contented} life.

She texted back: Yes. That’s exactly it.
