Marriage can be wonderful, exciting, fun; you know, all those things it was when it was new! After the first 15 years of marriage we realized we were tired of being unhappily married but we didn't know where to turn. Our journey to discovering God's design for marriage has led us to this ministry in the hope we can help couples going through the struggles we experienced.

We recently celebrated our 32nd wedding anniversary and have been involved in marriage ministry for the last 15 years teaching, facilitating marriage Bible studies, mentoring and speaking at various churches and other events.

We give God the glory for our renewed marriage!
