Experience 25 Biblical Truths & Essential Marriage Skills in a concentrated, three-day format.
We offer Individual Counseling to couples or individuals wanting marriage counseling or those wanting to deal with specific issues (depression, anger, addiction, depression, fear, worry, anxiety, infidelity . . .).
The Monthly Marriage Enrichment Group offers accountability and support to those who have already attended the Three-Day Marriage Clinic™ or the Three-Day Accelerated Marriage Counseling (AMC)™.
We occasionally offer classes, lectures, and group meetings at churches or colleges in the Houston area. Many of these events are free and some include child care.
Most women desire to live in peace with their husbands— but at times just need a listening ear and prayer time with and encouragement from an older woman. (Family and friends often cannot listen with an unbiased ear.)

FAQs Christway Counseling Center
Man’s ways do not work. “There is a way which seems right to a man, But its end is the way of death.” (Proverbs 16:25). Many Christian counselors use “ungodly,” secular concepts learned in secular schools that contradict God’s ways as revealed in the Bible. “Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly . . .” (Psalm 1:1)
Couples often cannot resolve their own conflicts effectively because they violate just one of the 25 Essential Marriage Skills—the Log and Speck Principle. The Bible says, “You hypocrite, first take the log out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to take the speck out of your brother’s eye.” (Matthew 7:5)
Notice that there is a time to “take the speck out of your partner’s eye.” But first, you must remove the “log out of your own eye.” In counseling over 3,000 clients, I have never once seen the reverse order work successfully.
All of God’s ways do work. “For no matter how many promises God has made, they are ‘Yes’ in Christ . . .” (2 Corinthians 1:20)
God designed marriage to work. “Unless the Lord builds the house, they labor in vain who build it . . .” (Psalm 127:1)
God describes how it will work. “All Scripture is inspired by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for training in righteousness; so that the man of God may be adequate, equipped for every good work. (2 Timothy 3:16-17)
When we approach marriage God’s way it does work! “. . . He will be like a tree firmly planted by streams of water . . . and in whatever he does, he prospers.” (Psalm 1:3)

Consider staying at a hotel both nights (for the Three-Day Marriage Clinic™). Even if you opt for the Three-Day Accelerated Marriage Counseling (AMC)™, you may wish to book a hotel room for all three nights. This maximizes your togetherness time and minimizes interruptions. You can also use downtime at the hotel to complete your projects.
