My passion in life is helping families prepare, strengthen and heal.  Preparing couples for marriage.  Training marital mentors.  Training parents.  Helping parents talk with kids about sex.  Enriching marriages.  Character-building tools for men.  Tools to help men form deep connections with other men.  Lifting the fallen.  Freeing the trapped.  And providing tools for church leaders, most of whom have almost no training in areas covered within this website.

This website is about tools.  Each drop-down is a slice of sage, some drawn from a career as a pastor and therapist, some from academic training including three post-graduate degrees ~ Masters in Christian Education, Masters in Counseling, and Ph.D. in Family Therapy.  Add 40 years of marriage, 40 years of ministry, father of three, grandfather of 10.  Sage.

The tools provided on this website are not bullet-point summaries to be skimmed.  Each link is aimed at providing training, wisdom, and life-building information.  To be absorbed.  Sage.

Free samples of each link are provided.  If you like what you see in the sample, then buy the entire document ~ usually for $3.00.  Obviously, this is not about making money – it’s about sharing sage.  The $3.00 goes toward keeping the website current and improving

    I’m so glad your work is available to the public now! I’ve found several of your articles encouraging, like the “Getting to Know You” guide, and the “So You Think You’re in Love” article.

    That is the John I know and love, you are an inspiration! This endeavor is going to bless and touch many who seek a closer relationship and guidance from our Heavenly Father. I can’t wait to see how this will evolve.

  4. Awesome website! I highly recommend Dr. John Splinter and all of his work. A great writer, counselor, and pastor.

    Having attended just a few sessions of marriage that Dr. Splinter hosted, I was inspired and prompted to help many others in China. I can predict that all the efforts Dr. Splinter poured into this rich ministry will be appreciated by millions Chinese and rewarded by our faithful God.
