Our Love Story . . .  

September mark 32 years of marriage! We have been assisting couples in the marriage realm for over 29 years. Our interest was prompted by an assessment we took during private premarital sessions at Santa Clara University followed by many months of discussion and preparation. Our ministry has evolved serving thousands of people and God's marital handiwork is seen throughout Silicon Valley and beyond. 


Our interest in facilitating classes began after we got married and noticed that some of our friends were either seeking divorce, unhappy in their union, or just had some fears of “tying the knot.” Today the trends are the same and so is our passion to help.

Wisdom . . . 

We believe that marriage is a covenant instituted by God to model family (Genesis 2:21-25) and to emulate the great love that Christ has for His church (Ephesians 5:21-33). God's gift of matrimony is experienced as couples accept and portray the principles of biblical wisdom in their relationships, laugh, forgive and have fun.

Legacy . . . 

For 113 years collectively, both sets of our parents have modeled what it takes to have a marriage that goes the distance. Our family is extremely grateful for their love and sacrifice. Blessed to be the parents of four beautiful daughters and a "son" we pray for the continuation of God’s favor and legacy through our children and look to the Lord for wisdom in helping other couples establish and sustain their family's legacy.
