BIO

We are 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. We openly share our relatable real-life trials and triumphs with hopes we might educate, equip and encourage husbands and wives, fathers and mothers, in their God-given roles. We purpose to present practical ways to apply God’s principles to both marital and family relationships.

We have volunteered with FamilyLife and several other ministries in a variety of roles since 2008. Currently, we are Field Directors with FamilyLife and volunteer Associate Staff at Silver Birch Ranch.  We were married in 2001 and are parents to four of the most amazing people we’ve ever known.

OUR STORY

We didn’t know a whole lot about how to create a healthy marriage when we walked down the aisle in the fall of 2001 and although medical professionals had told us that children would be unlikely, by 2007 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. In 2008 we attended our first Weekend to Remember event. We left the weekend encouraged and excited, motivated to keep learning how to live out a Christ-centered marriage and sparked with a desire to help others learn to do the same. Shortly thereafter we began volunteering at events like the one we attended. In 2015 we applied to join staff with FamilyLife, a ministry of Cru. Soon after, we accepted a part-time volunteer staff role which we served in for 2 years before transitioning to a part-time role as founding members of FamilyLife Local.

In the summer of 2021 God allowed us to enter a new and unexpected journey which included the elimination of Trevor’s full time job followed a few weeks later by his undergoing open heart surgery. During this time, the Lord made a way for us to transition to a full-time role as Field Directors with FamilyLife Wisconsin. We are incredibly grateful for a team of prayer and financial partners who have committed to link arms with us by joining us, sending us and keeping us on mission.
