The Destruction of Pride

Before anyone can profit from marriage counseling, they must have an open and willing attitude. They must know that they don’t know it all. In fact, we must doubt ourselves. Scripture says the Lord will cut off all flattering lips and boastful tongues. (Psalms 12:3) Show your mate a humble heart, willing to learn from them and notice the powerful impact it has on your relationship.


Dr. David Hawkins is the director of the Marriage Recover Center where he counsels couples in distress. He is the author of over 30 books, including Dealing With the CrazyMakers in Your Life90 Days to a Fantastic Marriage, and Saying It So He'll Listen. Dr. Hawkins grew up in the beautiful Pacific Northwest and lives with his wife on the South Puget Sound where he enjoys sailing, biking, and skiing. He has active practices in two Washington cities.
