These words, which I am commanding you today, shall be on your heart.You shall teach them diligently to your children and shall talk of them when you sit in your house and when you walk by the way and when you lie down and when you rise up. You shall bind them as a sign on your hand and they shall be asfrontalson your forehead.You shall write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates.” Deuteronomy 6:4-9

The passion God has given me is to help families to be strengthened and grow closer together. I want to help couples realize there are not just two options in life, to be miserably married or get a divorce. With God and His guidance, there is a third option, to be happily married. Just like anything else that is worthwhile, being happily married takes a lot of work, but it is worth it. When a mom and a dad are happily married and seeking God’s will and not their own, in all of their decisions, the family as a whole will be strengthened. I want to help remind couples that we have to prioritize relationships God’s way, which is: put God 1st, our spouse 2nd, and children 3rd, and everything else comes after. These are the goals for my own life and for my marriage and family.
