“TouchingHearts has done so very much for me and my family. I’m very grateful to have attended and participated in the weekend group and follow-ups. It’s really a true work from the Lord. I believe it’s evidenced in what it’s done for me and my family. When I came to the weekend I was emotionally shutdown, exhausted, frustrated beyond belief and ready to checkout emotionally. I was going through life living married but emotionally distant.
After going through the weekend and follow-ups, I’ve now learned to feel again. I’m able to write out my feelings, talk pretty openly with my husband and to value my marriage again. I like my husband now. I’ve always loved him, but now I can value him once again. My heart isn’t stone. Above all, I’ve been able to really forgive my husband and this has led to us communicating with each other. I believe he really hears me now and I hear him (we are listening and this is awesome). My family has received a great gift from this ministry; we are closer, more intimate and loving.”
"My husband and I came to Richard and Kathy at a very desperate time in our marriage. I had left my husband and took my kids with me, then returned home two weeks later. Four months later we attended the weekend. The weekend changed our lives. We have never been the same since.
Through God's hand and the weekend, we have opened up to each other and communicated our feelings in a way that we have never experienced. Through dialogue, we can now express our feelings and have less conflict. No blaming or assuming/presuming any more. Thank you, Lord."
“I felt like giving up before the weekend. There had been so much hurt between us. I felt like God wasn’t a part of our marriage anymore. Our communication was completely gone. I felt distant, alienated, dejected, rejected, hopeless, lonely and resentful. I felt that I did not know the person I was married to.
I now feel accepted, forgiven, blessed, loved, inspired and determined to love as God intended me to love. The Lord has changed our hearts and our lives through your ministry.”
“TouchingHearts ministry was a safe place for me to share my feelings with my husband, and allowed him to share his with me. What an insight I got to this man. It gave me hope that we could succeed, with the right tools. It has made me look at certain behaviors of mine that are hindering or hurting our marriage and my husband. Kathryn and Richard shared many beliefs about marriage that I already held, but had forgotten or refused to engage in because of fear. I would recommend TouchingHearts ministries for good marriages or marriages in trouble.”
“TouchingHearts has touched my heart and soul and spirit. They are alive in me again. TouchingHearts is a great reference for everyday living, the information is done so well, that every time I read even one paragraph from the notes, it helps me keep going.”
“TouchingHearts has brought a whole new person into this relationship – ME! For me being a feelings stuffer, and a non-listener, I feel like this heavy load has been lifted off of my heart and now with all of these new tools and methods I have learned, both my wife’s and my heart can beat together as one. I love my wife more today than ever. Today I can stop what I’m doing and listen to her feelings and if needed give her some input. For myself, I’m able to talk to my wife about feelings or whatever is on my mind a lot easier than I ever could before, and what a wonderful feeling that can be. Thank you guys so much for everything, I hope someday we’ll be able to return what you’ve given us - back 10 fold.”
"TouchingHearts has literally 'saved' our marriage! I was very depressed after I got back with my husband before our TouchingHearts weekend. For some time there was a lot of unhealthy stuff going on! We learned so much on our weekend. We learned so much about ourselves. Thank You!"
"Richard and Kathy were wonderful, open and so genuine. Their sincere concern for each and every couple was tremendous. What they are doing for marriage is a great blessing and gift from God."
"TouchingHearts allowed me to learn things about myself I thought I already knew. The weekend and Follow-ups gave me some much needed accountability to R. myself and God. R. and I have opened up in so many ways. I know our marriage will grow. As you have said so many times before, 'Your marriage will never be the same. It will be better.' It is! I would love to help out or be a part of your ministry. I would hope our story could help others. Thank you so much for opening your lives and hearts to us through God. "
I am so thankful that the Lord led us to TouchingHearts. Through our weekend and follow-ups, we now have the tools to deepen our marital intimacy. I now look across a room and smile as I look at my spouse. I feel connected as we have not felt connected in years. I value the gifts that the Lord has given my spouse, and I look forward to speaking his love language and modeling conflict resolution and intimacy for our daughters. I would love to be part of this ministry. Thanks so much!
"Were it not for TouchingHearts and the weekend seminar, K. and I would be so wounded. We would not have seen any hope for our marriage. I am convinced we would be separated at the least and more likely would be divorced by now. Richard and Kathy have truly been our friends and cared for us in ways that no other counselor, parent, pastor, or friend has been able to. God has anointed the Harrison’s with wisdom, grace, and revelation in the area of marital difficulties, and they will continue to rescue marriages. We were able to walk in their footsteps because they are transparent and down to earth, and most importantly, they have survived the greatest test a marriage can endure. We are thankful and recommitted as a result."
Kathryn and I hope you have been blessed by the testimonies as much as we have been. To be able to watch the Spirit of God bring broken marriages back to wholeness is such a privilege. PTL!
NEVER take your eyes off JESUS!
