Mike Watkins' Experience in Marriage Coaching

For the past 15+ years Mike Watkins along with his wife Joy has helped lead the marriage ministry at Ben Hill United Methodist Church in Atlanta GA, as well as the annual married couples retreat known as The Heart of Marriage Retreat. Mike has facilitated couples' workshops, conducted couple's bible studies, and is a certified Prepare & Enrich Facilitator. Mike and his wife Joy have been married for over 30 years. With the prompting of the Holy Spirit, Mike created The Joy Of Marriage as a marriage coaching practice working with couples to help them find the joy that God purposed in their marriage.

Unlike marriage counseling or therapy, marriage coaching with The Joy of Marriage is a solution based approach to partnering with engaged and married couples to help them set and reach their goals. We believe in coaching couples when things are already on solid ground to help them grow rather than working with couples in crisis mode.
