I ADORE weddings! The planning, the decorations, the music, the dancing, the pretty dresses. That’s why I really enjoy being a wedding photographer. But what I love even more than weddings is marriage. For this reason, my husband, Nate, and I were trained to become marriage coaches through a faith based organization called, Marriage Team. We volunteer as marriage coaches because we are so saddened the insanely high divorce rate in our country, and we love seeing marriages that are strong and full of love and respect. So we meet with couples once a week and we teach them skills that will strengthen their marriage.
Couples sign up for coaching because they are engaged and want to do pre-marital coaching, or they are married and have a good marriage but want to enrich their marriage, or because their marriage is struggling and they want to avoid divorce. And, actually, there have been divorced couples who have gone through marriage coaching and then gotten remarried. MarriageTeam exists to help strengthen and save marriages and give couples a fighting chance for lasting happiness.
Marriage Team is always welcoming couples who want to participate in marriage coaching, no matter the reason. And they are also always looking for couples who would like to be trained to become marriage coaches. If you are interested in either one, I encourage you to contact Marriage Team. Tell them Rayleigh sent you! 🙂
