25th Anniversary

 Yes. 25 years ago Robert and I answered “Yes” to “Will You Wed with Me in Christ?”
We did not know each other personally and really didn’t understand what that question would mean.
This was a Spirit-Guided Union, and I often say Robert was God Sent. Our relationship from the beginning has been very unique, always with utmost respect for one another and always with the intention of supporting the highest and best for each other. We have given our lives to Loving Service for the Good of All and so our relationship has been truly Spirit-guided and directed to Service.

Our story is simple. In 1985, I asked within to learn why I saw so many people fear Love, the deep abiding and steadfast Love, that seemed always to be in my heart and mind. Within two months Robert and his business partner came into my life as financial consultants and then as a volunteer business consultant for my then Pathways Center for Counseling, Healing and Growth. Shortly thereafter without ever having a prior personal conversation or interaction, I found myself asking that question to Robert, imagining that I was asking for spiritual partnership.  Neither of us realized that this would mean spiritual union, a worldly marriage and  lifetime of commitment to service together.

We continue to be blessed with many opportunities.  We have been guided to use all our financial resources, our talents and training to serve.  We have initiated 12 non-profit holistic centers and retreats in five states over the last 25 years, and have worked with thousands of holistic practitioners, ministers, therapists and clients  with trainings, retreats, workshops, and our holistic educational programs and individual services.  Our lives are rich with loving unconditionally, giving everything from the heart, and always remembering God and the intrinsic Goodness in all creation.

We continue to be creative and delighted in the new ways we can love and serve our grandchildren and families, the communities around us both at the Unity Church and Center for Inspired Living in Brentwood and our new Reunion Center in Pleasant Hill. There is no limit to what the Spirit in us can do with Love and Joy in us.  We live very simple lives personally and stay open to be “on call for God and for doing Good.”

I cannot imagine a more respectful supportive, generous and loving partner than Robert.  He will always be my best friend and confidante, my sounding board and co-creator.  Robert is an extraordinary man in the many ways in lives his mission to “ teach, model and inspire Spirit-guided Living”. Together we are happy and inspired to continue always giving our very best to inspire, encourage and facilitate the Highest Potential in everyone we encounter.

We love being Love in our world,
Betty Lue

The Gift You Are


You are the gift.
In your healing, I am healed.
In your smiling, I find joy.
In your learning, I am filled with wisdom.
In your free expressions, I am empowered.
In your abundance, I too prosper.
In your spontaneity, I am set free.
In your joy, I know heaven.

And so it is that you give your Self to me
And I receive you with love and gratitude.
I am the gift I give to You
And I fully receive the gift I freely give.

As I know You, I know my Self.
As I give to you, I receive all good.
As I support you, I am supported by the Universe.
As I honor and respect you, I experience gratitude in all my being.
As I love you, I am loving all of God's creation.

I know you and believe in you.
I honor, respect and support you in being.
In you and me is all the Universe.
We are gifts to one another.
