Bob Powell founded the Marriage Resource Center in 2014 with the goal of ending divorce in LaSalle County. He has been married to his wife Trudy for 29 years and is the Discipleship Pastor at Life Church in Peru, IL. He believes passionately that couples should not stay together out of guilt or obligation, but that couples can find joy in the marriage relationship.
After 20 years of counseling experience, Bob has developed effective and efficient strategies to help couples reconnect and rediscover that joy and love that initially brought them together. These strategies are unique in that they focus on building on the positive and discovering what works, instead of analyzing the problem and discovering why it doesn't work.
Bob has worked with all types of couples, from those who are trying to rebuild after an affair, to those who are doing fine but just want to fine tune some rough spots in their relationship.
