Has a faith transition created marriage problems? Does it feel like there is just no good solution?
There is a solution (really there is!) to the disconnect you are feeling in your marriage. You can learn to accept yourself and your spouse where you both are right now, no matter how far apart you think you are today.
The work we do together will create the foundation for a whole new marriage. One that is based on emotional responsibility and respect. It can be even better than the marriage you had before the faith transition.
Let’s get on a FREE call, with zero obligation, and find out what is going on in your mixed with marriage and figure out what you want to create instead.
It may seem impossible today that you can have a great mixed faith marriage. That is what I used to think to, but it is possible. If I can do it, you can do it.
It may seem like it will take forever or cost a lot. Coaching is a BARGAIN compared to the cost of disconnection and continued struggle and divorce.
Reach out for a FREE call and we can start fixing your marriage today.
I highly recommend working with Brooke as a life/faith transitions coach. Few things have been easy in my faith transition/mixed faith marriage, but Brooke has helped me over the past 5 months to find a path to inner peace. That peace doesn’t have to be dependent on my spouse, rather I can choose each day what I want to create independently of outside factors over which I ultimately have no control. Brooke helps me to recognize that there are often more ways to approach a particular problem than I could have identified on my own. Some of those solutions can be way more beneficial than my own natural thoughts. She helps me reframe my thoughts so that I can accept my emotions or feelings. I catastrophize problems much less now as a result of our work together. I look forward to our weekly phone call and am excited when I am able to put into practice the things that I have learned from her. While the end resolution of my mixed faith marriage is still very much in question, I feel confident that I am doing my part to create a newer and better relationship and I am grateful that I’ve been able to work with Brooke through this process. -J.D.

Not too long ago I faced a similar dilemma in my marriage.
A few years ago I decided I wanted to pursue a career in law. Over a decade ago I had graduated from law school but together we decided that we would have kids and I would be a stay at home mom. However, over the years that choice did not settle well with me and I wanted to choose again and pursue a career. However, the guilt and fear I experienced from even considering this choice was paralyzing. I started to realize the messaging I had received and believed all my life was causing me an immense amount of suffering. This among numerous other experiences caused me to question my Mormon beliefs and ultimately led to a break from the church. After mustering a lot of courage I decided to talk to Daniel about my shifting beliefs. Daniel freaked out. To be fair, if the roles would have been reversed, I would have freaked out more. Conversations became painful and less frequent. Uncertainty and fear became the norm.
Then we learned some tools from coaching and were really able to reconnect and turn things around. In fact, we were able to connect on a deeper level than ever before. The best part was being able to feel safe again with one another and feel that we were on the same team again.
My Husband’s Story
Brooke and I met in a singles ward. We both had graduated from BYU, gone on missions, and were attending church, FHE, the temple and institute together every week. We were eventually married in the Detroit temple. Years later, I was enjoying the type of a family that I had always imagined. Church and children were the center of attention for us as parents. Then things started to change. Brooke started to do and say things that confused and frustrated me. It was a confusing time as we seemed to grow farther apart and more emotionally distant. Even when Brooke open up about her new thoughts and beliefs, I had a hard time “believing” what I was hearing. I though or perhaps wished that this was a “phase”, or that she was having a rough time but it would go back to normal. I felt she was not thinking this through or not honoring me and the kids. I also felt like I had failed as a Mormon father as my wife’s new attitude toward the church started to influence the children and changed the dynamics of the family.
After months of discomfort and confusion, we learned some tools that were life changing and relationship saving. Those tools helped us talk through difficult issues like tithing and Sunday attendance. They helped us redefine our marriage in ways to support us both. These tools helped us recommit to each other and our marriage like we never had before.
