Christian Marriage

We’ve helped thousands of couples who need immediate and highly-skilled help.

We commonly see couples that need healing from deep hurts, loss of love, broken trust, and the pain of unresolved issues and conflicts.

We care deeply about your pain and stand ready to help you.

We offer 6 months of phone support because we want to be there for you – even after you leave!

Our Founders

Wendy Godfrey, M.Div.

Pastoral Counselor, Masters in Clinical Counseling

Wendy was a specialist in marriage crisis counseling. She also had advanced training in Solution-Oriented Counseling and has developed the unique tools and techniques for her approach to total marriage recovery that are still being used with Marriage Rescue today.

Wendy cared very much about being accepting of the couples she would help. She believed there are no “bad guys” — just wounded people who need to be loved and accepted. She was a caring listener and a results-oriented therapist. Her training and tools are what gives Marriage Rescue such a high success rate.


John Z. Godfrey, M.A.

Clinical Pastoral Counselor

John had extensive experience in helping couples overcome the barriers that adversely affected their marriages. Whether infidelity or exhaustion from turmoil and strife, John worked with each spouse to remove long-standing walls that prevented the joy and freedom all couples deserve. John also had a heart for people with sexual difficulties and addictions.

John was non-judgmental and treated each spouse with understanding and compassion. His influence and demeanor are how our counselors strive to relate to couples.
