We are Mike and Sharon Harris and we were married in June 1970. We have a diverse background and have lived in four states. Sharon has a B.A. degree from the University of New Mexico. She directed a private preschool with over one hundred students and a staff of eight ladies for several years She has written curriculum for both preschool and Sunday School and has enjoyed facilitating ladies' Bible and book studies. She has taught a Bible study to incarcerated young men and has ministered weekly at the local rescue mission. And as a pastor's wife she has been very involved with various church activities. Mike has a B.A. degree in Bible from Friends University. Mike was in retail management for eleven years and was a small business owner. While in ministry, Mike was an associate pastor in a large inter denominational church for twelve years and then planted a church and served as its pastor for almost seventeen years. Mike has also written various curriculum and taught children's and adult classes. Mike and Sharon have also written devotions that have been published in the devotional book, "A Little God Time For Couples". Their one son, lives in Omaha and has a heart for truth. "God has blessed our marriage and has given us grace to walk together for Him. That doesn't mean that our lives have been problem or worry free, but we are learning that God's plan is for marriages to bring Him glory in very season and every circumstance. We don't hesitate to use and recommend the wonderful tools that the Lord has blessed people to develop and teach for marriage. But in our own relationship, we noticed our life becoming one of 'shoulder to shoulder' rather than 'heart to heart.' We discovered that we needed to be sure that we were connecting as a man and woman, husband and wife from our hearts. As we explored this we rediscovered God's timeless truths: 1. The Bible lays out God's plan (roles and responsibilities) for marriage. 2. We can help each other connect not just head to head, but heart to heart. 3. Marriage is a "divine set up" to show us our great need for the Lord. Apart from the Lord in us, we cannot love one another in a way that is pleasing to the Him and meets our spouses heart needs. We know that the Lord has called us into a ministry to marriages today. This calling has been confirmed by others and our hearts are touched by the pain that so many are walking through in their relationships.
