Matt asks questions that go right to the heart of the issue. Sometimes I did not like his questions, however, through answering them I was able to begin to see more clearly the real problem. Secondly, Matt challenged my thinking pattern. He helped me to begin to see how my thought pattern was dysfunctional. He also showed me a way to begin making my own decisions based on my priorities instead of impulsive thinking. Finally, the books, handouts, and exercises Matt had me read or complete were helpful. They showed me new ways of looking at different situations. They taught me life skills to use to deal with problems in my life.
Matt’s books are comprehensive. He writes using Scripture, but also includes needed understanding of helpful clinical theories. He adds practical tools, insightful questions, and easy-to-read charts.
Matt writes in a way that even one person in a marriage can benefit from Marriage From Roots To Fruits. Often only one spouse is ready to make some changes. The details of information and step-by-step activities helps a person stay focused on learning and assessing the state of their marriage.
