He is a comedian on the Date Night Comedy Tour and a regular guest on Focus on the Family, Life Today, and Moody Radio.

Ted will lead us on such topics such as: (1) communication - this session receives the most "I wish we would have heard this years ago" comment; (2) Moving from unresolved anger to intimacy; (3) insights into reclaiming a healthy rhythm and pace in an otherwise frantic, chaotic marriage; and (4) a session addressing the selfishness and woundedness that prevents living out our marriages as God intended.

Ever feel like your marriage is "stuck?" When your marriage is stuck, you: (1) blame your spouse as the source of the problem; (2) You question your compatibility; (3) You repeat mistakes and develop patterns.; (4) You rush decisions; (5) You close your heart; (6) You isolate yourself from others.; (7) You doubt your future as a couple; and (8) You explore other options. Hear practical ways to eradicate these symptoms.
