Denise Broadwater is a private practice counselor who began her career as an MST Family Therapist working with at risk youth and their families. For the past ten years, she has been practicing in the Charleston area as a general counselor but specializing in marriage counseling. Denise is called to engage and push against a flood of personalities. She is the author of the book, “A House Without Holes: One Marriage Journey in a Charleston Renovation.”
As recent empty nesters, Denise and her husband Greg, purchased a dilapidated Charleston cottage in a “sketchy” part of town. They were able to purchase the house for less than the value of the lot. But they did not bargain on hidden complications. She had to face a remodeling project that included open dirt floors, a creepy bathroom and even wildlife in the kitchen. But as they worked the renovation project on their house, they also worked on the renovation of their life.
This book is her story and she is here today to share it with us.
The area you moved into was in a Historic district, correct?
You said that the house was in a “sketchy” part of town. What made you decide to go to that area?
Were there times when you were concerned for your safety in that type of neighborhood?
Were there any instances when you felt like you were not welcomed there?
Were you and your husband always seeing things “eye to eye” concerning the house?
Was there a time when something happened that just gave you a sense of peace, even when the situation looked like everything was going against you?
Denise, you help people everyday. Families, at risk youth, etc. Based upon what you have gone through – what God has brought you through – concerning this renovation project, what advice can you give to folks struggling in their relationships or marriage today?
Your book, “A House with Holes,” it’s available through your website, of course. Is it also in bookstores or Amazon?
If someone wanted to reach out to you, to ask a question or possibly to do an interview such as this, how can they do that? How can someone get in touch with you?
Folks, you need to get a copy of this inspiring book by Denise Broadwater. “A House with Holes,” is one of those books that will inspire you to greater things. Greater things in life. Greater things in marriage. Greater things in your relationships, with friends, family, co-workers. You really need to understand what Denise is sharing with you. She has opened up and shared some of the issues that plague just about every family. It just happened that God used this house renovation project to reveal Himself and His plans to Denise and her husband, Greg.
She has shared these experiences, with you, in this book. Not as a journal of a renovation project. But as a way to experience God, His Love, His guidance, His plans, even in the midst of troubles.
