Mark Forstrom

My name is Mark Forstrom.

In this blog, I share insights and principles that I’ve picked up over my years working with families.  I try to make the posts practical and timeless, so they may serve as a reference-guide to families facing various situations.   I love helping individuals and families find harmony and wholeness–my blog is one of my efforts to do that.

I am currently attending Graduate School at Liberty University (online).  I am pursuing a Masters Degree in Counseling:  Marriage and Family Therapy.

I previously served as the Pastor of High School students at New Covenant Bible Church in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, where I served for almost 26 years. Prior to that, I served for  6 years at Forest City Baptist Church in Rockford, Illinois.

My wife, Cindy and I have been married for 32 years. We have two daughters: Bren, our oldest, who married Tim, and Lexi, a Senior at the University of Northern Iowa.
