Vinny & Brittany Keeler

I have spoken pretty openly with many of my friends about my personal struggles and trials in this life. I have also shared how Crosslife has changed the way I relate to my Jesus and therefore to everything and everyone else around me. Vinny and I can both attest that Crosslife was far more than just great straight forward counseling; it was a life-changing experience. Our marriage is stronger and we are better people because of our time spent investing in ourselves and each other here. If you or someone you know may be struggling, I hands down recommend this place for ANYONE! It’s more than just quick fix therapy, it’s a whole new perspective and lease on life.

A Pastor’s Wife

“I came to you this past year a very broken and confused person.

Even though I considered myself a Christian, I had no real concept of relationship specifically one that involved God. Having been raised in a “religious” home, I was always afraid of God.

I continually tried to “do the right thing” so that I wouldn’t be punished.

What a sad and unfulfilling life!!

After many weeks of counseling and attending the Christ Life Seminars, I am happy to report that I no longer live in the fear and condemnation that stole so many years of enjoying a true relationship with God.

So many things have changed in my life I can’t even begin to list them all.

But what is most amazing is how I go through life “participating” in the love of what I now know to be a loving and gracious Father. Even through there are definite trials and tribulations,I live in the reality that it is “we” (not me) who will go through them together.

I no longer have to figure it all out and try to make things happen.

My husband and I have been making remarkable progress in our relationship. And what is so amazing is that it just seemed to start changing slowly – day by day- then days turned into weeks and weeks into months. I look back and am just blown away at the change I never did ANYTHING to make it happen. I just “participated” in my relationship with God and He did the rest.

It is truly remarkable. At the wonderful age of 61, I can finally say I am in love with my Father, and even more importantly, I know He is in love with me.”

CrossLife Counselee

All my life I have lived by a set of rules and standards that I thought was what God wanted for me. I have (subconsciously) believed that if I “do good” I will “get good” (results). I grew up in a home where performance based acceptance was an underlying factor. I went to youth group, saved myself for marriage, didn’t party with that crowd, shared Christ with my friends, went on mission trips, and the list goes on. All along, I believed that I was serving Christ and doing what he had called me to do. As a result, I would have a happy and fulfilled life. I would marry, have kids, serve the Lord together, and change the world!!! We would live happily ever after.

Last year my world came crashing down and everything I ever believed in was suddenly gone. God finally brought me to a point where the blinders fell off my eyes, and I realized that I couldn’t continue to keep all of the plates spinning in my life. My marriage was in shambles and I couldn’t do anything about it. My children were suffering and in pain because of it and I couldn’t do anything about that either. My initial reaction was to do what any “good Christian girl” would do. I rolled up my sleeves and fought for my marriage! I determined that the devil would not have my family and that God would use all of this for good. The price would be high, but I was willing to pay it. I thought if I did all the right things, this could be fixed. I read the books, sought counsel, found a marriage seminar, and trusted God for a miracle. I tried to change for my husband, fix myself etc.

NONSENSE!

I even lied to my kids thinking that somehow that gave my marriage a better chance of being restored. And all for the cause of DOING GOOD! So God could “get the glory”! Little did I know that He doesn’t need my GOOD, he needs my HEART. For the first time in my life, thanks to this new revelation, I can honestly say…

I AM A TOTAL FAILURE.

Through the events that occurred this last year God brought me to a place where I came to realize that no matter how capable or skilled I was, or how efficiently I performed I couldn’t save my marriage. I couldn’t save my husband. And I couldn’t save my kids from the damage this had done. Neither could I save them from the effect it will have on the rest of their lives. I couldn’t save the ministry we were involved in, I couldn’t save our business, I couldn’t save our reputation, and I couldn’t save our income.

I couldn’t save ANYTHING!

The most profound realization I came to is that I couldn’t even save ME. I had never known what was at the root of my ‘doing’ and what I was missing. The problem was that I was at the center of my own universe and I had missed what it really means to be a Christian and that is CHRIST IS MY LIFE. He is my source and without HIM, I really, really, really, am nothing. LIVING FOR CHRIST is not the purpose of my life!!! SERVING GOD has kept me from God!! Doing Good was Satan’s way to keep me from experiencing CHRIST and LIVING FROM HIM, not FOR HIM; allowing Him to live His life through me. There was no FREEDOM because I was bound to religion and its activity. I’m now done with “playing the role” and trying to keep an image that I thought I was supposed to maintain. My “Christian life” didn’t work the way I was living it and I’m over it. I can’t fix or save anything. I am a total failure and I’m finally… finally… OK WITH THAT!!! It’s actually a huge relief because it’s not up to me anyway!

I was never taught differently until now, and never had this understanding and revelation until now. I know it’s just the beginning for me but it feels really good. Really good.
