Joel and Kathy Davisson :
Joel and Kathy have been married since 1984. In 1985, things went downhill fast! Arguments were loud and dramatic. In 1987, they began to pastor their first church. Though they both loved the Lord and wanted a happy marriage, the dysfunctions continued to increase. Joel became skilled at mental, emotional, verbal and spiritual abuse.
In 1991, Joel's abusive treatment of Kathy culminated in his committing adultery. By this time their first son, Chris, was 2 years old and daughter Jenifer was 1 year old.
They left the ministry to travel on the road in full time secular work with the intention of restoring their shattered marriage and save the family. Things got worse. Three years of struggle ensued. Finally, they attended a one week set of classes that were designed to teach couples how to minister to severely abusive marriage relationships. Joel and Kathy realized that Joel was an abuser! Joel accepted this "verdict" and began to transform into a loving and kind husband.
By this time, Josiah was almost one year old and Shekinah was ready to be born. Shekinah Glory, born in 1994, got to live with parents who were healed and happy for fourteen years. On September 17, 2008, Shekinah suddenly went to be with the Lord. Kathy had been prepared to divorce Joel in the spring of 1994. Being pregnant with Shekinah was the only reason that Kathy did not follow through with the divorce. Joel and Kathy say, "Shekinah was our angel who kept us together long enough to attend those classes and was then with us for those first 14 wonderful years of our progressively healed and happy marriage."
Joel and Kathy have been experiencing an outrageously happy marriage for many years and have been in full time marriage ministry since 2004.

is the book that Frances Hunter introduced from the
stage of the Houston Astrodome at their 172th Healing
Explosion on October 2, 2004 as the best book on marriage
that she has ever read.
Healing Explosion at the Astrodome was a dream come
true for Joel and Kathy as the Hunters officiated
the renewing of their wedding vows in celebration
of their 20th wedding anniversary. In attendance were
Rodney and Adonica Howard Brown, Norvel Hayes, Marilyn
Hickey, Mary Ruth Swope, Doc and Norma Jean Leroy
and other notables. Jaci Velasquez sang! Frances prophecied
over Jaci at 3 years old that she would have a voice
that would reach the world!
Joel & Kathy,
rejoice for the help this book will give people wanting
a better marriage.

like the clarity of the statement about marriage being
taught "upside down", it's easy (for wives)
to grasp, and see in their own lives. I agree with all
your comments, and also counsel women to begin speaking
clearly and directly. They are filled with shame, and
it is so sad.
I'm very glad to learn of your book and I know it will
be a very valuable resource to me and to others I'll
share it with. I've not known of a book clearly stating
the "backwardness" of marriage teachings in
the church, and your testimony is so powerful and courageous.
I can whole heartedly stand behind it.
I am grateful for any opportunities to promote one another's
books, and will start spreading the word in my counseling
network. I looked on your web site, and it was great
fun to find a testimonial from Gary Lange -- he was
my internship supervisor about twelve years ago, and
a super guy.

Joel and Kathy,
I got your Four CD audio book of "The
Man of Her Dreams/The Woman of His!" and I am already
listening to it. I have a couple I am counseling and
it confirms everything I have shared with them (same
Holy Spirit). God is so awesome and I know that when
they listen to the whole thing, then they too will defeat
the enemy who is trying to divide their home.
Thank you so much. Your teaching removes
that backward way that most Christians try to make a
marriage work. It has to start with the husband and
so many write books on how women can manipulate their
husbands into loving them and it just does not work.
Thanks for the wisdom you share.
did received your book and I am enjoying it very much…….Your
web site is very good and is helping us in our spiritual
lives. I thank GOD for men and women like you who are
not afraid to share the power of GOD with others. You
are both in my prayers.
husband and I are Pastors and will be using your book
in our ministry.

a book! Joel and Kathy Davisson bare all in "The
Man of Her Dreams, The Woman of His." This easy
to read book is transparent in its discussion of true
marital woes prominent in Christian households. Joel's
fresh look at biblical texts that have long been contorted
to define marriage as a hierarchy as opposed to the
partnership God intended sets this book apart from
have traditionally been ignored as being equal party
to the health and success of a relationship. Kathy's
narratives are instructive and reflect heroism under-acknowledged,
as she and so many other women have be victims of
men’s self-serving theology.
freedom that is the Gospel should exist in our marriages.
This book directs men to free themselves and, most
importantly, their mates as Christ has freed us. I
challenge Christian men, Black and White, to resist
living out the stereotype assigned by popular culture
of being clueless schmucks regarding relationships.
It is time to buck up and lead our marriages to the
blissful state Joel and Kathy now enjoy.

Joel and Kathy;
gave my Sister your book because she is going through
asked her to preview the Book for me because I am
really busy right now and she could not put it down.
Then She gave it to her husband. So with my Sisters
review, I will use it in my Counseling.
and God Bless

"met" Joel and Kathy via the Internet...and the friendship
has been real and encouraging! As
fellow writers, we clicked...but as Christians with
struggling marriages, the synergy was overwhelming!
My husband and I have been through
one of the darkest times a couple can go through!
He was incarcerated for three years! Talk
about flailing marriages...we didn't even have
one for those three years! And the worst part
wasn't even the separation...it was the homecoming!
Things had changed! We needed a new start!
There was no foundation to build upon! Except
for Christ! Thank God for His saving mercy
on us both and for the work of people like Joel
and Kathy....without Him and without the prayers of
His people, we could not have survived! I
even wrote a book about it! My humble gratitude
goes out to Joel and Kathy...fine and wonderful friends...and
transparent Christian examples for the rest
of us to "imitate in the faith". My
husband and I renewed our vows all over again, on
June 11, 2005....a decidedly smaller affair
than Joel and Kathy's renewal! Nevertheless,
God is moving in very BIG ways!
* Hebrews 12:1-3 & Hebrews 13:1-8
***Author of Separated by Steel:
my husband and I strongly recommend this information-
packed book for all married couples. As fellow couples
in couple’s ministry, we can truly see the need
for such a book. Both Joel and Kathy speak candidly,
opening the hearts and sharing and confessing their
deepest hurts in the hope that they can help other
couples save their marriages and even make them joyous!
Their honesty is so refreshing as it takes true faith
to be pastor(s) in their church yet so publicly risk
the expressing of their testimonies in order to use
their trials to help others triumph. A must read!"
are too many marriages ... YES even "Christian"
Marriage going "down the tubes"! For the
past Forty Five years whatever "marriage counseling"
was offered DID NOT WORK!! (I am living proof!) ....
Joel and Kathy have a new "oblique" on the
dilemma! They are saving hundreds ... maybe even thousands
of marriages across the country!
was "tried" in the past .... did not work.
It's time for unity .... the churches to come together
and tackle this problem "head on". Joel
and Kathy are "just" a couple that is living
the perfect marriage ... and is sharing their success
.... they were on the verge of Divorce after an adulterous
affair! Today, they act like two teenagers in love!
"Church" NEEDS to hear their message! I
wish I heard it 13 years ago! It could have averted
my first divorce. I wish I heard it 6 years ago ...
it could have averted my second divorce!

Joel & Kathy,
terrific email. So very true and so very DIFFERENT
from the usual message of just what you cited.
I have heard it over and over. When someone
tells the truth, what we have been told for so long
seems so ridiculous! Just submit and love your husbands
and everything will be alright. Hogwash! I thank God
for your ministry of bringing the truth to the masses
who are so mislead. Keep it up in the name of Jesus.
our God continue to pour out His richest blessings
upon you and yours,

"I remember Joel (and Kathy)in the sessions at Life Skills. He was in a real blame game. Questions and challenges came! "What about her?" "When does this program deal with the wife?" "If she would get her life straight I would be okay!" The barrage of denial came fast and furious.
After the seminar was concluded, Kathy called me and we talked it out. I just knew Joel had tremendous potential if he ever got the truth of the Life Skills message. Well it happened! He got it! God's principles worked. You must read this book about Joel and Kathy's recovery. This book has a happy ending. Joel and Kathy, God will bless your message because of your Transparency. Reader, you will be blessed also by the truth." Paul Hegstrom Ph.D. Founder/President, Life Skills International From Preface to "The Man of Her Dreams/The Woman of His!
If your marriage has been ravaged by adultery, porn, other marital problems, divorce, emotional abuse, mental abuse or verbal abuse, then allow Joel and Kathy Davisson to help you!
Joel was a Pastor in 1991 when he got into an affair. He then continued to abuse Kathy with spiritual abuse, mental abuse, verbal abuse and emotional abuse. Joel's infidelity and continuing abuse almost caused a divorce.
In 1994, Joel and Kathy attended a week of training at a center that was teaching couples how to minister to couples in severely abusive marriages. Life Skills International with Dr. Paul Hegstrom.
There they learned that Joel was an abusive husband. Their marriage restoration began immediately. In 2004, after ten years of living an extraordinarily happy marriage, God led the Davisson's to write The Man of Her Dreams/The Woman of His!
Now, through this marriage ministry, Joel and Kathy help couples with every type of marriage problems, such as: recovery from porn addiction, adultery, abuse and help for a myriad of other marital problems.
The Man of Her Dreams/The Woman of His Ministry includes marriage training opportunities and marriage support. This marital support includes marriage seminars, their signature Weekend Marriage Intensive, phone marriage counseling and personal marriage mentoring. The Weekend Marriage Intensive is a combination of marriage retreat, divorce prevention and a Marriage Workshop.
The Weekend Marriage Intensive Marriage Retreats conducted by Joel and Kathy have brought about remarriage after divorce, rekindling of romantic love, adultery recovery and recovery from every other kind of unfaithfulness in marriage.
Marriage coaching and couples coaching is available for FREE on Joel and Kathy's online marriage forum at www.joelandkathy.com/boards/
The marital advice, marital counseling, relationship advice and answers for married couples problems that are found in the marriage tools offered here often bring immediate marriage recovery. This ministry is a marriage builder in every way. The marriage help that is available for marriage problems combines the best of relationship workshops, marriage enrichment and communication skills. Other Marriage Builder's - such as Tom and Judy Shewmake, of Connecting Relationships, utilize the marriage training and marriage support that is offered by this marriage recovery and marriage restoration ministry. Professional marriage counselors also utilize the books in their marriage counseling practice.
Joel and Kathy's entire ministry functions as a support group for husbands and wives. Husband and wife alike will want to utilize the relationship counseling and marriage support that is available to recover from severe to moderate relationship problems. If you are looking for divorce prevention, recovery from an extra-marital affair, or affairs, and have tired of traditional marriage advice; if you would like to rekindle the dream of love and romance in your marriage, if you would like to eliminate control and manipulation in your marriage, if you need to have restoration from a marital separation - and would like to experience a renewed love affair with your spouse; you have found the answers with Joel and Kathy's marriage ministry!
