Our Story

We had been married just a couple of weeks when Wally and Nancy Goddard, a couple in their late forties, turned around in their seats at church to greet us. After we visited for a minute, they invited us over to their house to eat dinner. We lived around the block from them in the bottom unit of a fourplex. They lived in a charming yellow home that was over 100 years old. There wasn’t a television in sight. Instead, there were shelves full of books, children’s toys, trinkets galore, photos of ancestors, and a huge wooden table with a benches that invited us to stay a while and visit.

That first dinner with them was unlike anything we had ever experienced. The Mexican food was fabulous, but it was actually the conversation that filled us.

Wally was a professor of family studies and freely shared his knowledge about relationships with us. It was like he couldn’t help himself - the information just seemed to flow so naturally, weaving in and out of the conversation.

Even though Jody and I both came from good and earnest families where there was love and devotion, we still had to figure out what we were going to do in our brand new marriage.

We were basically intimate strangers (we met on a blind date five months prior) trying to figure out how we were going to build our new life together.

We were grateful for Wally and Nancy, who were deeply intentional about their marriage and family life. Not only did they care about their marriage, they were kind enough to gather this overwhelmed young couple under their wing.

I went on to complete a degree in marriage and family therapy and I've spent the past 23+ years working with couples and families as a licensed marriage and family therapist.

Even though we've lived states away from each other, we've stayed close over the years.

In celebration of our 25th and their 50th wedding anniversaries, we decided to get together and revisit  the incredible truths that helped us build our marriages and families.

We want to share these powerful truths with you so you can build the same foundation that has brought us decades of marriage and family joy. 


Let us introduce you to the amazing discoveries of research, combined with eternal truths of the Gospel, to help create a happier relationship to yourself and your loved ones.

We all have good intentions when we start our marriage and family journey.
Even though we are committed and faithful followers of Jesus Christ, it seems like applying these truths in family life doesn’t always come easily.
Plus, much of the advice out there doesn’t always align with Gospel truths.
We’ve spent a combined 50+ years of professional and personal experience collecting and sharing the best research and Gospel truths to help strengthen individuals, marriages, and families.

Here’s what's included in this course:

Well-Being: Develop a flourishing relationship with yourself.
