Controlling behavior violates the boundaries of healthy relationships and will damage any relationship: marriage, siblings, coworkers, neighbors, and anywhere you find two or more people. As a…

Here’s a Benefit of Paying Attention to Our Emotions

Some people are tuned into their emotions, while others never think about emotions or minimize their importance. If you were raised in a home where emotions were never spoken of or might have even been ridiculed, you likely minimize the role of emotions in your life.

Why is it so difficult to communicate with my wife?
Why does she seem to change at the flip of a switch?

What Others Are Saying

I love the opportunity that my husband has to attend the sessions. It not only helps him gain more knowledge on how to support me better, but it also gives him a chance to talk to other people and get support for himself—with people that truly understand what we are going through.

Marriage Reconstruction has truly changed our lives and shaped our marriage. I am so grateful for Bill’s work, passion, and dedication. We love each other more honestly and wholly because of the things we’ve learned about ourselves and each other through Marriage Reconstruction. Bill’s ministry has brought deeper healing, understanding, and communication to my husband and me. We are truly humbled by the powerful gift this ministry has been to us. Bill has been every definition of a shepherd, mentor, and friend to my husband.

Wife and Survivor of childhood sexual abuse

Ph.D. Licensed Psychologist, Author, Teacher, Speaker Clinical Director, New Life Resources, Inc.

Dr. Bill and Pamela Ronzheimer offer a rare blend of clinical accuracy, personal experience, distinctly Christian perspective, and loving pastoral care as they address the complicated and painful topic of marriages impacted by childhood sexual abuse (CSA). Their understandings are derived from their own experiences, a lifetime of pastoring a church, Bill’s doctoral research, and their work with many couples healing from the consequences of CSA. . . . Difficult, complex, and often painful concepts are described and explored in a vulnerable and personable manner. They focus on increasing understanding, personal and relationship growth, and moving forward in truth and love.

Your ministry has been life changing for me and I still need to keep doing the work. Honestly, if it wasn’t for your support when I started this journey I don’t know where I would be. You’ve been a bright light that shined into my life and helped expose the darkness. I’m forever grateful that God has sent you into my life.
