Welcome to Your Support for Marriage Health and Wellness!
If you are married, have been married, or want to be married (you are seriously dating or engaged) AND you want a thriving, vibrant marriage, then you’ve come to the right place.
We are Doug and Julaine Bierl. All we do is about improving overall well-being of the individual and marriage to be as whole and complete as possible, reclaiming the wholeness that God intends, with Jesus as the center of wholeness. We provide Christ-centered services to build, restore, and strengthen marriage health. Our goal is for a husband and wife to have a vibrant, thriving marriage. So, wherever you are in your relationship, whether in a good place, experiencing challenges, or somewhere in between, if you want your marriage to be better, we can help!
Every marriage has challenges at one time or another. Our marriage is no exception! In fact, our marriage was once dead. We were separated and heading for divorce at the 3 year mark, even though it was our second marriage and we both said we would never divorce again. But, by the grace of God, our marriage was resurrected through Christ, and it is alive and well today (20 years later and still counting)! Chances are that we've dealt with at least some of what you are experiencing.
If you've experienced or are going through any of the following, we have lived through them in our relationship or in our previous marriage.
- Being single again after marriage
- Blending families
- Undiagnosed alcoholism
- Betrayal through infidelity
- Struggles with pornography
- Depression and suicidal thoughts
- Suicide attempt by a child
- Death of a child (as an adult)
- Estranged relationship with a child
- Emotional abuse
- Verbal abuse
- Other "baggage" from previous marriage
If you are faced with any of these, we hope you will connect with us to have a conversation to explore whether we are a fit to help in your situation.
Just Released! The Divorce Pill is the first book published by Doug Bierl, co-founder of Reclaiming Wholeness. Readers will get a glimpse into what divorce could look like. The book represents the "why" behind the work of Reclaiming Wholeness. We want to help prevent divorce because of how it impacts every aspect of life. The Divorce Pill is available as a paperback and e-book on Amazon.
We Serve Couples, Churches, and Organizations:
We help engaged couples build a solid foundation for marriage and we help married couples navigate the ups and downs of marriage.
We help church leaders to strengthen marriages of their congregation by providing marriage programs and services they might not otherwise be able to offer. We also help pastors, elders, and other church leaders to strengthen their own marriage so they remain effective as leaders.
businesses & Nonprofits
We help owners and leaders strengthen their marriage so that they remain effective as leaders. We also provide employee marriage wellness programs and services to avoid or reduce the loss of productivity associated with struggling relationships.
The costs of unhealthy marriages are high – to families, communities, and businesses! Divorce statistics are staggering in terms of the impact on emotional, physical, and relational well-being--not only for the couple involved, but also for families, children, and generations to come. Our goal and desire is to help marriages succeed!
We are glad you are here and hope that you will connect with us to explore what’s possible in your marriage.
