When Dewey and Lynne Wilson agreed to meet with some friends in 2002, they were simply hoping to help them salvage their marriage of almost 20 years. They had no idea what God was about to do in their own lives. The Wilsons witnessed God save their friends' marriage, but maybe just as important, their own marriage was enriched beyond imagination. All through a process called mentoring. Within months, more couples sought out Dewey and Lynne and before long, the demand on their time was so great, it was evident God was taking Dewey away from his career of building luxury homes to another home building career, only this time not using sticks and bricks.
Since that time in 2002, the marriages and families of literally thousands of people across America and Canada have been touched in a positive way through the marriage mentoring process created by the Wilsons and perfected over years with the help of other volunteers. Today, Strong Marriages is much more than mentoring. Just in the last few years, Dewey and Lynne have created many new resources and unprecedented processes for helping couples prepare for marriage, along with helping married couples learn to make their good marriages better. All of this is for one purpose only, "To see God glorified by helping individuals experience God's design for marriage." Sounds simple right? Maybe in a perfect world, but today we seem to keep finding ways to tear down marriages in our culture. Keep reading to see how you can help us make a positive difference by building stronger marriages and stronger communities.
