Over half of today’s marriages will 
end in separation.
That's a fact!

By taking a marriage preparation program you're cutting your chances of divorce by an amazing 30%.  Premarital counseling and education also correlates 
to higher satisfaction in and 
greater commitment to the marriage.

Could you use help clarifying important topics, navigating change with humor intact, improving communication, or deepening in your understanding of love and marriage?   Marriage is always a work in progress!

Besides being a minister and officiant, Rev. Robin Renteria has an M.Div. in pastoral counseling and is well qualified to help you.

Life shrinks and expands 
in proportion to one's courage.
