How to Have a Healthy Marriage in 2020

posted by Bethel Marriage & Parenting | Nov 3, 2020

This year has really put a strain on relationships, including marriages. We have experienced a global pandemic, work and school moving online, significant political and social unrest, and general uncertainty. These sources of anxiety can create tension, disconnection, or conflict between spouses. 

Do you need some extra tools to build up your marriage before heading into the holiday season? Register now for this free, 60-minute webinar on Thursday, November 5. Certified couples counselor Melissa Parnell, joined by her husband Jonathan, will give you practical, research-based tools for a stronger spousal relationship. Melissa will walk you through how to transform disconnection or contempt into habits of appreciation and mutual respect. 

Whether you need a tune-up or a life raft, this webinar is for couples in all seasons of marriage. Put the kids to bed, jump on the call at 8:00 pm, and spend 60 minutes investing in your marriage. 


Melissa owns Parnell Relationship Consulting in Vancouver, Washington. She works with couples and individuals to cultivate, repair, and maintain lasting, trust-based relationships. Melissa dives deep into experiences that are creating anger, hurt, and frustration, with the goal of cultivating peace, connection, and hope. Before moving to Oregon, Melissa and Jonathan were active members of Bethel Church, and Melissa expanded Bethel’s Healing and Recovery Ministry. Melissa has a Master of Arts degree in Human Services Counseling and a Certificate in Human Resource Management and Analytics from the University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton School of Business.
