Faith in Marriage:
The Strength to Persevere, Overcome, and Thrive

Written by Doug Bierl, co-founder of Reclaiming Wholeness, Faith in Marriage provides couples with a guide for how to live out a Christ-centered marriage.  

It is challenging to be married today, possibly more than at any other time in history. 

How do you address issues that come up in marriage? 

Many couples don’t handle them well. As a result, they end up living in or settling for an unhealthy, stagnant, and unfulfilling marriage. They disengage emotionally, and eventually, physically, through separation and divorce. 

If there was one thing that you knew would give you the strength to persevere and overcome challenges in your marriage so that it is healthy and thriving, would you do it? 

Good news! There is. It has to do with making faith in Jesus as the focal point of your marriage. This book is filled with timeless truths, personal experience, and practical applications for living out faith in marriage.

Faith in Marriage  is now available as an e-book and paperback through Amazon and at other retailers. Download a sample of content here.

The Divorce Pill

Written by Doug Bierl, co-founder of Reclaiming Wholeness, The Divorce Pill provides couples who are considering divorce a glimpse into what divorce could look like. In the book, the main character, Brian Walker, is considering divorce and he finds out about a pill, the "Divorce Pill," that puts him into a 24-hour hallucinogenic state where he vividly sees and experiences what divorce could look like for him and his family. Afterwards, he can decide whether to follow through with his plans or take steps to restore his marriage. 

Although the The Divorce Pill is fiction, the situations are real, based on the experience of the author and others. It is the author's hope that The Divorce Pill will open the eyes of readers to how much divorce might impact their lives, and that it will prompt them to seek the help and resources they need to overcome the challenges they are having in their marriage. Reclaiming Wholeness is one of those resources. 

The Divorce Pill is available as a paperback, e-book, and audio book through Amazon and at other retailers. Download sample content here.
