Links to resources by Joel and Kathy. General instructions on how to use GodSaveMyMarriageForums.com posting boards. This is a ministry to bring healing to hurting marriages. It is not a free-for-all for marriage paradigm debates. You do have to be "approved" to offer actual directive advice to people. (anyone can offer encouraging words.) Everyone can ask for help, regardless of current status. That is what this marriage forum is here for!
It has been almost Ten years since first releasing "The Man of Her Dreams/The Woman of His!" We have been conducting Weekend Marriage Intensives for Seven Years. So many couples have received astounding miracles of restoration and love, going on to live an Outrageously Happy Marriage. Occasionally, there is a husband who simply decides that he is NOT going to live an outrageously happy marriage. His wife has given her "all" in doing what she can to encourage a restoration and an outrageously happy marriage. In the end though, her husband absolutely refuses to participate in that restoration. This forum is for women who are on the new "Fork in the Road!" We recommend that a wife stay private and seperate to the Lord for a period of two years after being physically seperated from her husband. She needs time to stabalize - and to get her feet solidly on the ground in her new life. For that wife who has spent herself in trying to have a restored marriage; God seems to go to GREAT LENGTHS to bring you to a place of peace, security and supply asap. We will love to walk with you in this season of your life!

This is a private access forum for the Women's Group to talk online about the things discussed on the women's calls. Kathy conducts one call each week. The call is to help those wives whose husbands ARE working to become great husbands.. and she needs some help in how to respond warmly and in how to correctly hold him accountable to change when he misses it. Kathy did this PERFECT and she is the EXPERT! The women's group is $25 per month. The $25 covers your group call once each week with Kathy and gives you access to these recordings to review calls or listen to missed calls. To get access to this section, please send an email to JoelandKathy4@aol.com or text Kathy at 386-334-7873 and let us know you are part of this group - and give us your username for the forum.
These are recordings of the couples calls. This section will be available to everyone who is giving the minimum $10 per month gift to the ministry to access the group calls. NOTE: If you are already giving $25 or $100 for the Women's calls or Men's calls, then you are covered. You do not need to add $10 to the men's or woman's group. We just want everyone to carry a small bit of the load and $10 per month is like NOTHING for six calls per WEEK to get help for your marriage and to now access these calls on the forum. After you are on the automatic $10 per month giving using the giving link at the top of the forum, please send an email to JoelandKathy4@aol.com and let us know you are part of this group - and give us your username for the forum.. (or if your household is already giving the $25 or $100 per month).
This is a private access forum for the Men's Group. We conduct three calls per week for men who are working to win their wife's heart back and some men are involved who are with their wife but want to get more input and direct help on these special calls. The group is $100 per month and covers all three calls - and access to these recordings to review calls or listen to missed calls. To get access to this section, please send an email to JoelandKathy4@aol.com and let us know you are part of this group - and give us your username for the forum.
We feel like couples should strive to be together as much as possible. Therefore, we do encourage couples to build a business together; on a part time basis; something they can do together; that will ultimately/possibly result in being a full time income.
In this section, you may share ideas and business opportunities that you are doing that may contribute to reaching this "perfect" world in a couples financial life. Feel free to discuss network marketing, import/export, crafts - or any other potential income producing business ideas.
For people who have a passion to encourage others in health and nutrition. Share your motivation and knowledge that might help our readers live longer, more full and happier lives by addressing health, exercise, weight and nutrition. Yes, you may introduce your favorite health and nutrition network marketing product.
This is for various issues of life; all of which affect marriage, but none of which are marriage specific. For example: "Your salvation experience - How did you meet the Lord and get saved?" - "Have you come through a serious life issue successfully?
A forum to share with Joel and Kathy our thoughts and prayers at the one year mark of the passing of their "almost 14 years old" daughter, Shekinah Glory Davisson - September 17, 2008. One year ago now. Update - well, now it is three years later.
In honor of the many families that we have who do homeschooling, we wanted to open a section for you to converse about your marriage and how "The Man of Her Dreams/The Woman of His!" brings positive change to the life of HomeSchooling families. The principles are the same for all couples - but homeschooling does have some unique situations that are specific. Here you can find support and encouragement for homeschool families in one place. This is a brand new forum begun in mid-February, 2009. You do not have to be a homeschool family to interact and offer help. This is for everyone - just an easy way for homeschool couples to support each other in one spot. Spread the word!

Let's talk about parenting here!
