Who are the Osuagwus and what is Marriage 180?

Check out the interview below!

How long have you been doing what you do, and how did you become Life Empowerment Experts? 

To answer this question, it’s probably best that we share with you some defining moments, and resulting “compelling stories”, that brought us to where we are today – coaching people like you on exactly what to do to heal their heart, prevent divorce and fall back in love again. These defining moments occured throughout our collective lifespans. As individuals, we both experienced significant trauma in our lives. 

For Leontine, her trauma started early in life. She was sexually violated as a young toddler by a neighbor. This created an emotional foundation of mistrust and rebellion throughout her teenage years. She felt like she needed to protect herself at all times, and as she grew older, this became a problem in her relationships and career. Leontine was often insubordinate to her employers, rebellious, and resistant to criticism from her bosses which caused her to lose her job a few times. 

In her personal life, her friendships were superficial and meaningless. She was always waiting for the other shoe to drop, and expected only bad things to happen to her. As a result of her emotional deficit, low self-esteem, rebellion, defiance and her constant need for self preservation, Leontine went through multiple failed romantic relationships as well as a broken engagement. Even after marrying the love of her life in 2005, the soulish damage from the abuse, neglect and rejection in her childhood was robbing her marriage of the intimacy, love and fullfillment that it derserved. 

For Emeka he was imprinted at a young age as well. His father left his mother when he was a teenager, leaving him without a father figure, to find his way as a man on his own. He lived his life without a clear sense of direction which led him to marry the first woman who made him feel significant and embarked in a 12 year

marriage that would almost cost him his life. He found himself fighting with his first wife constantly. The anger that he had suppressed from losing his father at a critical time in his life came rushing back and his marriage became miserable over time. He didn’t know how to stop or prevent arguments with his wife, and the relationship felt out of control. He spun his wheels trying to figure out what he needed to do to get himself out of constant conflict. The abuse and dysfunction continued to escalate, which ultimately created a life of fear and powerlessness. 

Emeka and Leontine both reached points in their lives where they only had one choice to solve their problems. Pray. And they did, and both received very clear messages about what God was leading them to do. 

For Leontine, her prayer was answered with a deep hunger for a stronger and more intimate relationship with God. She then launched into a soul healing journey where she opened her soul up to the Ministry of the Holy Spirit and allowed him to heal her “soul wounds” and transform her into a devoted, humble, submitted and fulfilled wife and mother. 

For Emeka, his message was to be humble, grab hold of his emotions and learn to de-escalate heated situations with words. God allowed Emeka to see how love could forge a clear pathway to safety. 

Emeka and Leontine allowed God to heal their soul (mind, will and emotions), where they developed a sense of awareness about the way their lifelong trauma had sabotaged previous relationships and had threatened to destroy their current marriage. With God’s grace and direction, they were able get completely free from the emotional bagage of their past, divorce proof their marriage using soul healing and life empowerment strategies and started teaching Christian couples how they can do the same: 

We watched couples heal from the wounds of their past, release anger, unforgiveness, bitterness and offense, turn their marriage around and fall back in love in record time. 

We have since made a commitment to dedicate the rest of our professional lives to helping other married couples break through soulish baggage, master their emotions, release mental anguish, put an end to constant fighting and build the kind of meaningful, strong and fulfilling marriage they’ve always dreamed of. 

We’ve worked with many private clients, spoken in front of countless groups: We’ve helped many men and women prevent divorce, restore love, intimacy and respect in their marriages and we have created the soul healing and connecting system, a series of 10 important inner and outer steps every couple needs to heal from “soul wounds”, divorce-proof their marriage and fall back in love in record time. 


Who are your clients? 

We work with couples just like you who have a past that is littered with pain and disappointments, they’ve sabotaged meaningful relationships because of their emotional and mental baggage and their marriage is at risk of falling apart. However, they have never been taught that the chaos in their marriage is directly correlated to the condition of their soul. Additionally, they have never been taught exactly how to heal the wounds of their past, how to allow God to mend the broken pieces of their heart and how to release bitterness/resentment and establish deep intimate connections with their partner so that they ALWAYS know how to love, honor and communicate effectively with their mate.

Our clients include: 

• Married couples who are experiencing infidelity in their marriage. 

• Married couples who are at the brink of a divorce or separation. 

• Married couples who are currently separated.

​• Engaged couples who are looking to set their marriage up for success.

• Newly married couples who want to start their life together on the right path.

• Married couples who are experiencing constant conflict in their relationship.

• Empty nesters who are looking to re-establish a deeper connection with eachother and redefine their marriage.

• Married couples whose relationship has gone cold, who’ve lost their intimate connection and have become emotionally and physically distant.

• Married couples who are currently separated but want to get back together and start rebuilding their marriage. 

• Anyone with a struggling marriage who is sick and tired of going in circles and wants to prevent divorce and fall in love all over again.


What makes you different from other “Life Empowerment Experts?” 

Although we will occasionally touch upon goal setting and other “life coach-y” things, you have us as Soul Healing & Life Empowerment experts and consultants. We work on the inner and outer principles for soul healing and Life empowerment. We look at your soul and your marriage and help you identify areas of self sabotage as well as give you strategies and principles to help remove the residue of past trauma, pain and disappointments and build a strong marriage from a Biblical perspective. What that means to you is that you get wise-spiritual- soul healing-meets-kick-butt authentic marriage restoration coaches. We are unashamedly Christian and spirit-led and we don’t pretend to hide it either. Because we don’t beat around the bush, you’ll always get a straight to the point, Biblically-sound and honest response from us. 

We are concerned with how to get your “soul wounds” healed FAST – to help you STOP self-sabotaging so you can develop the level of intimacy that you deserve and fall back in love with your spouse. 

We don’t beat around the bush or waste time. You may not like what we have to tell you – but you can be sure we will always tell you the truth. The truth about what’s causing the turmoil in the marriage and how to get rid of it FAST so you can start building a strong, loving and intimate relationship in record time (and we throw in a healthy dose of humor and inspiration, which always helps!). 

What type of personality do you work best with and what is expected of me? 

The Soul Healing And Connecting system, products and programs were created for people who are absolutely excited and dead serious about breaking cycles of divorce and separation, healing from mental and emotional wounds, building a strong marriage and finally experiencing what the Bible calls “The Abundant Life” in their marriage – it means putting an end to fear, shame, regret, blame and unforgiveness, beating yourself up saying things like: “I don’t think we can get past this” or “This marriage will never work”. 

They were created for you to put principles in practice within a few months (sometimes weeks!), which will eventually lead you to healing your mind, mastering your emotions, aligning your will with God’s will, and finally breaking the cycle of broken relationships so you can increase your level of initimacy and divorce proof your marriage once and for all. We will take you from an "I can't deal with you anymore" marriage into a beautiful, growing, and "happily ever after" one. That’s what we call A MARRIAGE 180!

Being purpose-minded people ourselves, we’re known to work best with other purpose-minded people, people who are committed to the success of their marriage no matter what, who are super-ready to get going and just want to know exactly what steps to take to heal their heart, prevent divorce and fall back in love again. Clients often tell us – “just tell me what to do and I’ll do it!” Consider what you’ll do with us to be a high-octane crash course on everything you need to know to heal your “soul wounds” and rebuild your marriage. 

You will be expected to take serious and consistent action. No excuses anymore, just a very different way of thinking and full support while you achieve this incredibly exciting goal: Heal your heart, Prevent divorce and fall back in love again in record time. 

For what type of people are your programs NOT going to work for? 

Please know that we are very selective in who we work with and we cherry-pick our clients, choosing to (gently) turn away people who aren’t suited for our programs and won’t get the results for which they would have signed up for. (It wouldn’t be fair to them.) The Marriage 180: How To Heal Your Heart, Prevent Divorce & Fall Back In Love Again programs are NOT for those who have no money coming in and are absolutely, financially desperate, at least not right away. 

It’s been our experience that people in a financial crisis do not trust the recommendations we give them and do not do the work (probably because they spend so much time worrying about where they are going to get the next month’s rent check or mortgage payment.) If you fall within this category, it’s absolutely OK. We’ve all been in times of financial crisis at one point or another. 

We have (3) recommendations for you: 

1. Get some money coming in with a full-time or part-time job at the very least, and then call us. This will take the edge off and provide a little more peace of mind. Mostly, it will de-clutter your mind enough to focus on your Marriage 180 assignments and the BIG picture. 

2. Join our free Facebook group where you will get weekly training sessions that will get you started on the journey toward preventing divorce & falling back in love again.This free information will get you started towards your goals until you’re ready to work with us one-on-one. 

3. Make a point to read the “Marriage 180” emails. The tips are sent every week and will give you LOTS of awareness and tools to get you started on the journey toward healing your heart, preventing divorce & falling back in love again. 

Doing these three things will really help you get primed for our work. When you’re ready, call us and we’ll get you started. (We’re in no rush and we will be here when you need us.) 

Other types of personalities we won’t work with (without exception) are the complainer or the chronic skeptic, as well as individuals who consistently make excuses for not getting their assignments done or challenging every aspect of the program. If you are one of these people, we gently and respectfully ask that you not call and I hope you understand why. We’ll probably just not work well together and we wouldn’t want you to waste your time or money. Is that fair? 

What exactly is the Soul Healing & Connecting System™ and what does it include?

The Soul Healing & Connecting system begins with understanding your true value and the value and purpose of your marriage from a Biblical standpoint, how to believe that you deserve to have a marriage that is abundant in love, respect and intimacy, how to receive what you want from God (including peace, love, intimacy, respect, soul healing and a healthy marriage), how to create powerful intentions that get you results as well as the outer pieces to powerfully heal from the inside out.
