About Matt Pavlik
My writing style is conceptual and concise. I want my readers to be able to see and digest the truth without wordy distractions.
I'm a counselor. I've heard over a thousand stories from my clients about their struggles. I write based on my experiences with helping others. But I also write from my own life experience.
My most recent book is about identity. I'm convinced this is the most important gift from our creator. Confident Identity is like an instruction manual for your identity. I teach you why your identity is so important, but go further to address what it means to have an identity and guide you toward discovering your identity.
My first book is about marriage. I've been married once (I am still married) but I've been engaged twice. I know from personal and professional experience how hard it can be to find the right mate.

Marriage: Mission Critical
God created you with a blueprint which establishes not only your identity (His end-in-mind for you as a work of art) but also your growth journey (the step-by-step plans). However, your experiences with the darkness of this world, sin, and the enemy deface the blueprint and leave you disoriented. A marriage at its best provides an encouraging companion who helps you discover your true identity. But without God, marriage becomes a place of fear and self-doubt.
In Marriage from Roots to Fruits, you will learn:
- How to experience spiritual growth and truly know God;
- How to live in your true identity and ensure individual growth;
- How to enjoy marriage growth and true love for your partner.
Because, the day you stop growing you die.
Do any of these describe you right now?
- Overwhelmed by perpetual unresolved conflict;
- Drifting away from your partner;
- Experiencing the pain of betrayal;
- Confused by the complexity of marriage;
- Afraid to walk down the aisle.
This book is designed with 52 short lessons which include:
- Concept diagrams: learn the principles visually;
- For Reflection ideas: think deeper about each lesson;
- Experiential exercises: know the truths in your heart;
- Next Steps actions: apply what you learn in your marriage.
