What Couples are saying
“I’ve heard from several of our ladies who received so much from what you shared. They were moved by how real and sincere you are. Your transparency immediately put them at ease, making them feel they were safe with you, and could receive the message God had for them.”

Highway to the Heart was written by Patti and her husband David to speak to the needs of both husbands and wives, in a fair and balanced manner. While her methods are inspired by scripture, you may choose a faith-based or non-faith based approach. The principles outlined in Highway to the Heart work in a Christian or non-Christian context.

What’s so special about Highway to the Heart?
It’s all about the coaching.
If you were invited to play in a semi-professional soccer match, yet you did not know the rules of the game, how would you respond? Likely, you would decline, rather than try to participate without an understanding of the game, or having developed the skills to play. However, with regard to marriage, most of us begin without the necessary skills for effective communication and conflict resolution. We typically do not already know how to connect with a spouse on a heart level. Through years of working with couples I have found that there is tremendous value in learning together, and in completing couple exercises that practice your newly learned skills.
You will have fun and will learn from the material, and from one another. Highway to the Heart was written by Patti and her husband David Hatton to speak to the needs of both husbands and wives, in a fair and balanced manner.
