Our marriage has improved more than we could have expected through our counseling with Pastor Tom. God has very clearly called him to be a counselor. We've been to so many different marriage counselors, but it wasn't until we went through counseling with Pastor Tom that we experienced real improvement and restoration in our marriage. We would recommend that anyone seeking counseling reach out to him. His counsel will have a permanent and lasting effect on our marriage.
