Ken & Irma Morris
Married in 1991, Ken and Irma thought their marriage would have no problems since this was the second marriage for each. They made a commitment to God and to each other that divorce was not an option. But serious problems did emerge, and they separated in their second year of marriage (but stayed living in the same house). As they worked on stabilizing their marriage, they realized that many couples struggled with the same issues. Prompted by a strong desire to help others, they became trained Marriage Educators and have been in the marriage/relationship field since 1993. They are certified in many programs such as Relationship Enhancement, Mastering the Mysteries of Love, Love’s Cradle, World Class Marriage, PAIRS and the Third Option. They are also trainers of trainers in several of the programs. They are co-authors of a faith-based weekend couples retreat called “The Mirror.” Ken has a passion to work individually with couples to help them reconnect by learning communication skills. Irma’s heart is helping women process and put closure on past negative experiences.
