About Dr. Joe Beam

An internationally known and respected sexologist and authority on love, marriage and sex. He received his PhD from the University of Sydney. He is the founder and chair of Marriage Helper based in Franklin, Tennessee, just south of Nashville.

He has designed and developed courses, workshops and seminars to help troubled marriages for over two decades. He has been seen on nationwide media and spoken to countless couples through live seminars, dedicated radio programs and books. Today he dedicates most of his time to researching and developing new ways to help couples in crisis. Old ways don’t always work in today’s human environment. You’ll agree that times have changed since your parents were married and your issues are not the same. Our approach to bringing back the passion and energy in a marriage is dynamic and effective.

Saving marriages is not an occupation for Dr. Beam. It is a mission – a mission that has consumed his heart for decades. “My original goal was to reduce divorce in this country by ten percent over a ten year period,” explains Beam. “I came to realize that we couldn’t do this by only helping marriages in trouble. We had to educate couples to change the way they live so their marriage could be all it could be.” This type of broader thinking and the methodology used to deliver the message is having a huge impact on families today. By reaching beyond the mind and into the heart and soul of men and women, love finds new ways to allow couples to communicate and create a relationship that is aware but not conducive to divorce.

Seeing the results of his mission in multiplied thousands has not only strengthened Joe’s resolve but added even more momentum to the mission. Today, the popular idea that divorce is a fact of life is being challenged vigorously. Saving marriages is not a job, it’s an all consuming passion and every marriage saved is a testimony that the mission can be accomplished.

“Dr. Joe Beam has been such an instrumental figure in my life. He is such a great counselor and adviser and has so much knowledge not only about things of the Lord, but also on marriage and relationships. I don’t know what I would have done during a very difficult time in my life if I hadn’t had Joe to talk to and seek wisdom from…”

More About Joe

Beam was born in Rose Hill, Alabama. He has been married to his wife, Alice, for, as he says, “42 years, give or take three.” They are the parents of three grown daughters and have two grand-children.

Joe’s Expertise

Beam’s expertise as a marriage and relationship expert came after his own life fell apart; he lost his family and spiraled into a life of alcohol and drugs. Though painful, he describes his eventual recovery as miraculous. He says it was “by the grace of God” that he remarried his former wife, Alice, and redeemed his life. Beam educated himself on becoming the best husband and father possible; founding what was to become one of the largest marriage ministries in America. His expertise is recognized not only by the Christian community but also by national programs such as NBC’s Today Show, ABC’s Good Morning America, Focus On The Family and many others.

Beam is now founder and chair of Marriage Helper, researching and developing programs to help marriages in crisis. He is in high-demand as a speaker for organizations, churches and corporations to share his insights and expertise on relationships; marriage, coworkers, managers/ employees, parents/ teens, singles looking for love and other relationships. Over the years, more than 200,000 people have enrolled in his courses, seminars and workshops.

Author of numerous books, Beam’s most recent title is The Art of Falling In Love (Simon & Schuster, 2012). Beam and his wife Alice collaborated with Dr. Nick and Nancy Stinnett to author the book Fantastic Families. Other of his titles include the best-seller Seeing The Unseen, about spiritual warfare, a powerful book to strengthen marriages entitled Becoming One, a book about what Heaven will be like based on what the Bible actually says entitled, The True Heaven, and Getting Past Guilt, about the amazing grace of God,

Beam describes himself as a “learner and voracious reader.” In addition to the volumes of material he reads in his research, Beam also enjoys pleasure reading and fishing, though “I don’t get to go as often as I’d like.”
