The Connection Principle: Pastor pens new book

Published 10:25 am Thursday, May 7, 2015

As a pastor and life coach, Chuck Taylor, helps individuals and couples overcome hurdles in their lives.

Recently, he has written a book geared especially to couples, intended to help them improve communication in their marriages.

“The Connection Principle” focuses on the three essential tools that couples need to get what they want from their marriage. In this book, Taylor speaks frankly, using examples from his own marriage experiences and the information that he has gained from working with other couples.

A graduate of Southern Christian University, Taylor has a bachelor’s degree in Biblical studies, with a minor in psychology. He opened Sage Garden Care Center in Mocksville in November 2012. He also does public speaking at churches, organizations and businesses on marriage enrichment and communication in the workplace.

At Sage Garden, Taylor offers coaching for couples tailored to improve their unique marriages, individuals looking to improve their lives, pre-­marital counseling for couples planning to get married and coaching for career advancement.

“I created Sage Garden as a safe place where anyone, Christian or non-­Christian could come speak with a pastor in a non-­judgmental environment and work on their goals to becoming the person that they want to be,” he said.

The inspiration for this book came from his desire to provide “something small so that no one would be intimidated to read it” he added. “ I wanted to be the author who honestly shared my own struggles and achievements in order to show my readers that I have first-­hand experience with the tools I am offering.” A

After a decade of working with couples, Taylor says he wanted a practical and easy-­to-­read resource for couples to work through together in order to get on the same page in their conversations.

Married to the former LeeAnn Godbey, they have three children, Salem (5), Sekaiah (3), and Haven (4 months). The Taylor family attends church at Camp Manna.

Taylor will be available on Monday, May 11 from 5-­7 p.m. at the Davie County Public Library with copies of his book available for purchase. The cost is $5 each and he says he will be happy to sign the books upon request.He may also be reached at Sage Garden Care Center at 336-­734-­9476.
