Celebrating Family

A Message From Senior Partner and Owner Tom Marks...

With Fall at our doorstep and football season in full swing, it feels wonderful to embrace a new season. Don’t you love new seasons? 
I enjoy the freshness that comes with feeling like you’re working with a clean slate. I love knowing that with new seasons of life, you can start over. 
I know this because the Bible promises us that: “The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.” Lamentations 3:22-23 ESV
Every day I’m privileged to work with individuals and families who are facing a “new season,” and while they are often challenging I am always encouraged to see people successfully start again. Often, I see those going through difficult situations come out stronger at the other end.
September 16, 2015, is National Step-family Day, and I wanted to take a moment to recognize the fact that one in three Americans lives in a step-family. More than 50% of Americans will live in a step-family at some point in their lives.
As I think about the challenges that come with the newness of step-family dynamics and step-parenting, I encourage us to celebrate the joy of new families, but also to remind us that it is with patience and persistence that every family perseveres. 

Parenting Through Divorce

It is sometimes hard to see how our divorce is affecting our children because we are hurting so badly ourselves. It is easy to let our pain blind us to the needs of our children.

Many times, the thing our kids need most is the thing that is the hardest thing for us to do: Be nice to our spouse.
Don't do it because the other parent "deserves" it.
Do it because your children deserve it.
