As a relationship and marriage coach, I don't have the monopoly of knowledge. I am still a learner, and one way I learn new things, is that I check what others are writing and sharing with others. I belong to some marriage and relationship Facebook groups where I don't only share with the fans and friends, but learn a great deal from them also.
Honestly, not all coaches are good enough to help you on your relationship and marital journey. Please let me help you understand the three kinds of coaches you will come across.
1. The feminist coaches:
This type of coaches are usually female coaches whose expertise is one-sided. They are always seen talking in favour of the female folks only. Sometimes they go overboard churning "feminist" and "emancipated" wives and not the virtuous wife talked about in Proverbs 31. Women who have been coached by them are usually very difficult to live with as spouses, very arrogant, pompous, unyielding, impatient, and always ready to quit a relationship or marriage at the slightest of challenges. Most of their mentees' marriages are usually nothing to write home about. Please beware this type of coaches.
2. The chauvinistic coaches:
This type of coaches are usually men. Like the feminist coaches, their expertise is usually one-sided also. They favour the men only. They teach the men to be demigods, proud, disrespectful, arrogant and egotistical. They make men feel on top of the world with little or no regard to their spouses or fiancées or girlfriends The men under their mentoring never truly have a settled home. Please beware of this type of coaches.
3. The balanced coaches:
These could be male or female coaches. They advise both partners or spouses to to be lovers of God, God-fearing, spiritual, dead to self or flesh, to extol God's word in and over their marriage or relationship. They advise both partners or spouses to respect each other, love each other, cherish each other, submit to each other, care for each other, support each other, tolerate each other, forgive each other, trust each other, partner each other, and pray for each other. The balanced coaches don't take side with a partner/spouse against the other spouse. They are fair in their judgment, balanced in their teaching and coaching. Their aim is to build homes that will glorify God and be a source of inspiration to other people. Please go for this type of coaches.
Henceforth, be careful who you call your relationship/marriage coach or counselor. Today I pray that your marriage never crashes in Jesus name.
Thanks for reading.
See you at the top!
Your friend,
Coach Joshua
