Spirit Led Ministry Seeks to open Public Discourse on State of Relationships


Considerable percentage of marriages end in divorce, and
the number is considerably higher among African-Americans

Atlanta, GA – Spirit Led Ministry, a
marriage and relationship-focused ministry in Atlanta, is looking to initiate
an open dialogue in response to the question: Why do a considerable
number of marriages/relationships fail?
  Founded by Jacques and Toshia
Posey, Spirit Led Ministry takes a refreshing, God-centered approach to healing
marriages. By providing biblical counseling and coaching, Jacques and Toshia
seek to help both couples and singles either prepare for marriage or strengthen
their existing marriage based on God’s purpose.

“I think as a society,
we spend a considerable amount of time discussing who or what caused a marriage
to fail, but not nearly enough time discussing why,” said Jacques Posey.

succeed.  If we as men and women can discuss with each other what are some

in addressing problems within a relationship, and finding possible long-term

Having learned from their own personal experiences,
Jacques and Toshia are able to guide couples through a transformation –
teaching them to embrace and implement God’s truth in their marriage and

“We believe that if
couples truly want to save their relationship, they will ask themselves and
each other ‘why?’,” said Toshia Posey.  “And as counselors, we are here to
help them answer this difficult question, and help heal the divide that
currently exists.  My husband and I remain committed to healing the wounds
that exist not just in the African-American community, but with all couples who
are going through some difficult times.”
