All married couples have differences, and all of us "fight". This does not necessarily make us bad. The idea is to Differ with Dignity and not to behave asif your spouse is the enemy.  

The idea is also not to think the same, but to think together, so that you can come up with the best solution. 

We should also not fight to prove "who is right" but rather "what is right", and please, love your spouse more than your own opinion.

Being the right person also implies doing the right thing at the right time, so,

         Learn when to Fight, when to Flee and when to Flow.

About the man – Bernie Le Battie

Pastor Bernie Le Battie

As a family man, Bernie Le Battie has been

IMG 5644married to Cathy Le Battie for the past 37 years.

He is also the father of 3 beautiful, daughters

who are married, and together with Cathy,

they are the proud grand-parents of 6 grand-children.

He is the presiding pastor of Family Restoration

Ministries – a church who has the redemptive gift

of working for the restoration of families. He is also

the founder of Family Dynamix which is a marriage

enrichment ministry which has been in existence for

15 years; furthermore, he is the founder of another

marriage enrichment ministry called Family Friendship

which celebrated their 20th year anniversary in 2009.

As a servant of God, he utilises all available avenues to

spread God’s message of restoration, healing and hope.

He speaks extensively on television, marriage seminars,

Radio programs and conferences, both on a national

and international level. He addresses many marriage

groups which have been established within churches, and

makes himself available to the body of Christ at large.

He is a marriage officer and is a strong proponent of premarital

counselling as a pre-requisite for marriage. He

counsels widely and is a father to many. Mentoring is high

on his agenda and in this regards he believes in this if we

are going to build a new generation to face the challenges

of the future.

Last, but not least, he authored a book “Impact your

marriage by improving your spouse’s partner”, where he

addresses the very controversial issue of submission with

sensitivity. This will be followed by a book on Headship,

which will obviously bring the balance to this contentious


Bernie advocates aggressively that marriage is the first

institution that God created, even before government and

the church. “If God is going to impact the world, He will, as

always, begin with the family” he says.
