More About the Author

www.davidclarkeseminars.com

Dr. David Clarke is a Christian psychologist, popular speaker, and the author of ten books.

Through his Bible-based teaching and therapy, he guides people toward healthy lives, marriages, and families. Through his entertaining and practical seminars, he presents God's truth in the areas of emotional well-being, relationship building, and development of parenting skills.

Dr. Clarke has written: Men are Clams, Women are Crowbars, Winning the Parenting War, The Total Marriage Makeover, I'm Not Ok and Neither are You(the 6 Steps to Emotional Freedom), A Marriage After God's Own Heart, I Don't Want a Divorce, I Don't Love You Anymore, Cinderella Meets the Caveman, Kiss Me Like You Mean It, and Married But Lonely.

An experienced media guest, Dr. Clarke has appeared on shows produced by numerous television and radio networks including Focus on the Family, FamilyLife Today, and Janet Parshall.

"The material for my seminars and books comes right out of the Bible, my marriage, and my therapy office. I am a full-time psychologist in private practice. When a principle or technique works for my clients, I put it into a seminar talk and in a book. I don't share theories and what I think might work in people's lives. I only share what I know already works."

"Most of my work is with couples. I am like a dog on a bone when it comes to saving marriages. I have never recommended divorce in my almost 30 years of being a therapist, and I never will. I believe that with God's help and hard work-the right work-every marriage can be saved and built into a great, intimate marriage. My counseling approach doesn't always succeed, but it often does."

Dr. Clarke has been married to his beautiful blonde, Sandy, since 1982. They have four children and one incredible, amazing, beyond marvelous granddaughter. He and Sandy live in Tampa, Florida.

Format: Paperback
My husband and I struggle with communication issues and "baggage" that was brought to the marriage. Also, we developed lots of bad "worldly" habits since neither of us were Christians for our first 15 years together. I made efforts to tackle our challenges by merely telling my husband "we need to change" or "I can't keep going on like this" or when we see couples go their own ways after the kids leave "that's gonna be us if we don't do something about our relationship." All to no avail. In an exasperated effort to find a better way I picked up Dr. Clarke's book and read it right away. I've read lots of Cloud/Townsend books as well as tons of other Christian self-help and thought this book gave good, solid advice, and practical step-by-step instructions for how to deal with our issues. We've started implementing the steps and already see the difference in our relationship. I think a big thing that most people don't give enough consideration to is all the hurts that we bring to our relationships and how they affect how we interact with our spouses, whether we realize it or not. This is huge! Dr. Clarke gives excellent advice on how to purge those hurts from our deepest places and cleanse our souls to be free to grow in our relationships. Kudos to you Dr. Clarke! Another book of his I read a few years back that was really good is Cinderella meets the Caveman. I think that's a better book for beginning struggles or maybe for step-by-step advice after you and your spouse have healed your wounds through this book, and are attempting to build good day-to-day habits.
Both worthy reads. Dr. Clarke blends his counseling advice with a great sense of humor and a gift for hitting the nail on the head without it hurting too much! :-)

Dr. Clarke disrespectfully and sarcastically gives marriage wrecking advice. He teaches wives to stand in judgement of their husbands, and to punish the husband if he does not give in to her wishes. The "Letter of Resentments" that he has the wife write will only keep the wife focused on the pain of the past, instead of focusing on building a better today and tomorrow. Dwelling on the past only makes things worse for BOTH the husband and the wife.

For an actual PLAN to improve your marriage, check out "Fall in Love, Stay in Love," By Dr. Harley. He (very respectfully) teaches BOTH the husband and wife to get what they need in marriage WITHOUT punishing the other or dwelling on past mistakes.

This book comes down very hard on husbands, especially me. However, it was well justified. More husbands should read this book.

This book was the last ditch effort for our marriage and it worked! I went through the steps of this book just over a year ago with my husband and our marriage has completely turned around.

I found this book to be helpful for understanding some concepts in communicating with my husband. It did seem to go pretty far in the end product.

Format: Kindle Edition
The chapter titles were EXACTLY what I (or we needed), while listening to the book going to sleep last night, I immediately woke up hysterical because the person named in the book was the same name as the person who ruined my marriage after 31 years. While we are still together, this person did something that I will NEVER forget since it was so disgusting. We are still trying to put our marriage back together 4 years later. My personal thoughts, in books such as these that would hopefully bring you closer as a couple again, names should not be used. Instead the author could have just stated the wife and/or husband. Needless to say, I REALLY hoped to God that this book would do that for us, instead I returned it at about 4a.m. and cried myself to sleep again. That name brought back all the hurts and betrayal.
