“We have had over 400 couples, 100 individuals go through {the Relationship Help Centers programs} and I will tell you there is nothing like it! I refer to it as the defibrillators of the heart of the individual.”

— Pastor Eric Heard, Mariners Church

“We entered the weekend rather reluctantly, simply expecting to experience just ‘another’ marriage seminar. What happened in those few days was more than an experience; it was an encounter that rocked our marriage! We experienced lasting transformation in such a deep level, that the only word that describe it is miraculous!”

— Pastors Anthony & Madeleine Greco, Calgary Life Church, Alberta

“As a pastor I face the never ending saga of marriages in crisis… {Relationship Help Centers} has the ability to help couples get past the surface issues and right to the root of the pain. I have had them {Ron & Tina} minister in my church and watched them have a dramatic impact on my people. I would strongly recommend them to anyone or any church as not only engaging speakers but also speakers that are desperately needed in our culture.”

— Pastor Gary Keesee, Faith Life Church, Johnstown, Ohio

“All I can say is that what God is doing in their ministry… has been 100% success! Every time we can send them {we do} because I have something that’s 100%. I get emails all the time saying that their marriage is savedbecause
of them!”

— Pastor Mattew Cork, Yorba Linda Friends Church, California

“Over the past twenty years we have seen the consistent passion that Ron and Tina have for healthy marriages and families. They live, they fight for it, and they have a very unique gift to bring restoration and healing to the most challenging cases. We have recommended their ministry to various couples with amazing breakthrough results.”

— Pastors David and Cheryl Koop, Coastal Church, Vancouver, British Columbia

“I have known Tina Konkin for over 30 years and observed one overwhelming fact – her success and longevity in teaching is due to her love for people which created in her a great desire to see people made w hole. To say she has done a good job at it is an understatement to say the least.”

— Pastor Don McMillan

Common reasons couples attend

Are you really hearing each other?

Good communication is the cornerstone to building and maintaining any healthy relationship. It creates a sense of intimacy that can be shared throughout a lifetime, and it’s nearly impossible for any relationship to thrive without it. Whether you would like to improve your conflict resolution or experience a deeper connection with your spouse, you can achieve it through communication. Thankfully, it can be learned!

We can help you develop your communication skills so that you and your partner can establish and sustain a relationship filled with closeness, love and respect.

Can I feel happy and whole again?

We can never quite know what’s going to happen in life, but one thing seems to remain true: it’s so very rarely what we expected. Sometimes things happen that we never saw coming, and it can feel like the ground is shifting beneath our feet. What happens to your relationship during those times? Many marriage workshops teach the skills to help people deal with the past, but leave it at that. Relationship Lifeline provides a deeper experience that leaves you with the foundation and expertise that will allow you to be confident in your ability to face anything that comes your way — together.

We can help you find healing from emotional abuse, break the painful patterns that have resulted and learn to set boundaries to prevent it from happening in the future.

How do we set boundaries with within our families?

A marriage is more than a relationship with a spouse — it is the uniting of two families and the creation of a new one. It can be complicated trying to set boundaries with the in-laws as you start growing a new family with your spouse. How do you manage everyone’s expectations around holidays, birthdays and family traditions? These are common challenges, and in fact a recent study found that over 60% of couples felt that friction with their in-laws caused them long-term stress. But while these struggles are common, we believe that they are far from inevitable.

We can help you learn how to create balanced, stable and happy relationships with extended family that will bless your marriage instead of strain it.

How well do you know yourself?

There is no one else quite like you. You are a unique individual who has been developing over time and through all your life experiences. Your mix of hopes, dreams, fears, quirks, habits, and personality is unmatched…but have you really taken the time to really get to know and understand yourself? Do you ever find yourself asking why you behave a certain way? Focusing internally to increase self-awareness will help you understand what shapes your perspective, why you react as you do, and why other people “just don’t get it” when something seems so clear to you. Understanding yourself will revolutionize your behavior and relationships with others, and we can help you!

We will guide you through a process where you and your spouse will come understand yourselves individually, understand each other and learn how to more effectively grow together throughout life.

Can your partner be your shelter in a world of storms?

Maybe your marriage is fine, good even, but you just don’t have that sense that you are each other’s safe harbor — the place where you know you can bring the secrets of your heart and your deepest fears and insecurities, and know that you’ll be met with love and understanding. Maybe you can’t seem to find the right way or bring up the challenging topics. Maybe you’ve tried, and it didn’t go so well. Maybe you’re scared you’ll be met with judgment instead of empathy.

We can help you develop the skills necessary to have those important talks and cultivate that sense of refuge, both throughout the weekend and thereafter.

In order to be involved and facilitate Relationship Lifeline, Paul and I had to experience it first. We were newly married, still in the “honeymoon” phase, but found that it took our relationship to a new, deeper level of understanding, especially with our blended family issues that had already started to surface.
