What our clients say

Strategic Architect, Guide and Advisor … this is the language that I would use to describe the relationship that my wife and I have had with Mark over the past 12 years. He has challenged us to deeply analyze our ambition for our lives including our marriage, our family, our friends and our careers. Once we were grounded in that narrative, he has helped us navigate the journey through anticipating breakdowns and continual reflection during key inflection points in our lives (e.g., our child’s education, caring for our parents, preparing for aging physically, mentally and financially, etc.). He has helped us build a foundation of communication, listening and understanding that prepares you for the unknowns that life often throws at you. We are now living the life that we have designed as opposed to just letting life happen to us. I can honestly say that Mark has changed the course of our lives and we are deeply grateful.

We must merely open our hearts to receive Him and His loving presence. For centuries this unparalleled classic has given both blessing and instruction to those who can be content with nothing less than knowing God in all His majesty and feeling His loving presence throughout each simple day.
