He has the kind of impact that makes presidential candidates like Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump take notice. Now, Brooklyn, New York megachurch pastor A.R. Bernard wants to use his influence and knowledge to help men and women foster better romantic relationships.
In his new book Four Things Women Want From a Man, A.R. Bernard is pulling out all of the stops to share knowledge that he has acquired from over three decades of counseling couples. By focusing on maturity, decisiveness, consistency and strength, Bernard may have unearthed keys to improving marriages, the dating world and self worth in the lives of singles.
However, the concepts in his latest work did not form overnight. The preacher, who has been traveling to speak at conferences since 1989, recalled one meeting where he told attendees about a secret concerning what women want.
“I stood up in a meeting and I said, ‘I found the secret. I know exactly what women want,” he recalled to The Christian Post. “Everybody clapped. Then I wrote on the board, ‘they don’t know.'”
While the gesture made all of the men in attendance rise to their feet in applause, there was more to the story.
“All of the men stood on their feet, started clapping, cheering and applauding. I saw and said ‘hold it guys.’ I wrote on the board ‘they do know what they don’t want,'” Bernard said, reliving the event. “All of the women stood up and started applauding. So then I had to take a look at what it is that women don’t want.”
The experience led Bernard to explore the premise of his new book. He realized the importance of placing focus on maturity, decisiveness, consistency and strength since couples have a hard time articulating those needs to one another.
“I cannot tell you how many times I’ve counseled over the last 37 years and the women would say, ‘I just wish he would grow up.’ What does she mean by that,” he questioned. “If she’s not specific in articulating those things then a man will not know how to respond to that.”
