Today, they are marriage, family, and personal coaches and they speak in conferences and retreats. They have also initiated a marriage discipleship ministry designed to equip couples to come alongside other couples and families.
Dave and Linda are both retired educators with combined classroom experience of over 60 years. They were married in 1968 and have two married children and five grandchildren. Dave has Masters degrees in Education and in Divinity, and is a certified Biblical Life Coach. They are both certified “True Colours” facilitators. They have written two recent Scripture-based marriage and parenting guides, “The Marriage Oneness System” and “Ephesians Essentials for Parenting Successfully.”
A few testimonies
My husband and I didn't have great examples of marriage in our immediate families. Dave and Linda are teaching us how to be a good husband and wife to each other. We are so grateful to be working with them, it has reconnected us in an amazing way!”
—Young Couple, expecting first child
Dave and Linda were our light in a time of complete turmoil and darkness in our marriage. To be able to have someone to turn to who is caring, loving and nonjudgmental when you feel your world is falling apart is invaluable. We will be forever grateful to them because we truly believe without them and their support, we would not be in the awesome place we are today in our marriage. Everything through Jesus Christ our Saviour. And thank you Jesus for Dave and Linda”
—Married couple with young children
Thank you for helping us rebuild what we thought was lost forever. Oneness in marriage is so important and through your encouragement and support we have reconnected in a new way that is exactly what God wants for every marriage. You are always there for us and we are forever thankful that God brought you into our lives. Words can’t express how much we appreciate your investing in our marriage and our lives. You are a very special couple whom God has sent to restore unity in marriages. ”
—Married couple with teens
When I look back on where my husband and I started on our journey with RSM all I can say is Thank-you. RSM has given us the tools to build the firm foundation for our marriage that we didn't have. You have taught us about parenting and about God’s design for our marriage. We now have a huge support system. We never need to feel alone when we are part of the RSM family. We can reach out for guidance, prayer and support. RSM has given us the courage to heal, forgive, let go of the past, and put our hope and trust in God.”
—Married couple with young children
I would like to thank you for our meeting the other night. Being able to finally be open with someone felt like a huge weight lifted off my shoulders. ”
—Husband and father
I don’t have words to express how grateful I am for all your advice, support and patience. Many times I went to see you without hope and feeling sad. I always left encouraged and with new strength. You are amazing and I see Jesus in you both.”
We can never thank you both enough for all the love and support you have given us over the past couple of years. There are no words to express our gratitude for your grace and willing hearts to be there for us.”
—Affair surviving couple
As we have worked through the bondage and betrayal that addiction to pornography brings, the ministry of Dave and Linda Halse has given us the acceptance and freedom to be honest and transparent with each other. Their encouragement and wise counsel have opened the door to healing in our personal lives and in our marriage.”
I am at a loss for words to express the gratitude and appreciation we have for you. I never understood how faith could move mountains until I met you. Both of you can move mountains. You are such a blessing and your imprint will forever be on our lives.”
—Wife and mom
Dave and Linda are an experienced team that have successfully applied biblical principles on parenting and marriage and can energetically and creatively present them to others.”
Dave and Linda have been used by God to restore broken relationships to wholeness and unity. As a team, they are highly insightful with people and can quickly identify roadblocks to healthy relationships. They have come alongside many hurting families and couples and I have seen growth and healing take place in these relationships.”
