BIO

Hi! We’re Trevor and Tanya and we live life with a sense of thankfulness and enthusiasm.  We are known for our transparent and joy-filled teaching style that encourages and challenges others. 

Our relatable real-life trials and triumphs are shared to educate, equip and encourage husbands and wives in their God-given roles as we present practical ways to apply God’s principles to both marital and family relationships.

We welcome opportunities to speak at camps, retreats and small groups.  We have served with FamilyLife in a variety of roles since 2008 and currently serve as Team Leaders with FamilyLife Local.  We were married in 2001 and reside in White Lake, WI with our four incredible children.

If you’d like to learn about having us speak at your event, please contact us here.

STORY

We didn’t know a whole lot about how to create a healthy marriage when we walked down the aisle in October of 2001.

Although medical professionals had told us that children would be unlikely, by 2005 we had welcomed four children into our family. 

While our relationship was in a fairly good place, we had little instruction or example of how to build a thriving marriage.

Upon hearing about an upcoming marriage conference on the radio we scheduled our first weekend getaway, a Weekend to Remember, in 2008.

We were encouraged and excited to hear from couples who shared authentically and provided a model of how to build a thriving marriage.

The weekend sparked a passion for encouraging others through small group studies, one on one ministry and leading retreats in the area of marriage and family.

In 2015 we applied to join staff with FamilyLife, a ministry of Cru.

Shortly thereafter we accepted and served in a part time volunteer staff role for 2 years (while working a full time job to provide for the needs of our family).

In 2018 we were asked to help launch FamilyLife Local, a new arm of the ministry, as Team Leaders.

We are currently in the process of raising our remaining support to allow us to join God where He is at in a full time capacity with FamilyLife.
