Guys! Have you been waiting in anticipation of the “Exciting Announcement” I hinted at in my last post? I bet you have.  But first, a little background.


Chris & I spent the first 13 years of our marriage doing youth ministry.  (Read more about that here & here.) We love teens and young adults and are passionate about helping them live their lives to the full, just like were passionate about helping all of you!

One area in particular that the Lord has highlighted for us to focus on with this age group is dating.  Relationships, sex, dating…”are they the one?” pretty much consume a chunk of our mental capacity at this stage in our lives and rightly so.  Aside from your decision to follow the Lord, choosing who you’re going to date and ultimately marry is one of the largest and most impacting decisions of your life.   And statistically, when you take a look at the world around us, were doing a pretty terrible job of setting people up to be in a healthy, thriving relationship.

Our culture is dominated by marriages that aren’t working. You’re constantly hearing of couples that are breaking up or just “falling out of love.” It’s pretty obvious that healthy relationships don’t just happen on their own. Now, there are a TON of resources out there to help couples once they’re married, but there is not much designed to educate people prior to walking down the aisle. The problem was apparent and the glaring desire to find a solution started stirring in us.

So, after over a decade of research, first hand experience of working with teens & young adults AND navigating the waters of our own relationship through high school and college,


something very significant formed.

So without further adieu, we’re extremely excited to tell you about something the Lord placed in us so long ago.  I’d like to present you with:

IMG_6167“The Pursuit of Love” is a dating conference designed to prepare teens and young adults to be in a healthy and godly relationship. We want to teach people how to be in a healthy God-honoring relationship that leads to the thriving marriage they so desire.  As well as what in the world that actually looks like in the 21st century 🙂

Our goal with this conference is to be very real, honest, practical and open about this topic; we’ll even give you a glimpse into our relationship. Buckle Up. 😉 Pursuit of Love is open to teens, young adults and parents of teens as well!

This conference is coming up SOON! Next weekend to be exact, and we’re also excited to announce that we’re able to bring it to everyone completely free!  BUT we do need you to register pretty please.

Check out the quick video below to hear directly from Chris and I on the topic and for ALL the details and to register just follow this link.

Thanks in advance for the love, support and PRAYER! 🙂 We so want to turn the tide on this culture and show people how to do relationships the right way.  We believe with all our hearts that the information we’re going to share at the conference has the potential to be life-changing!

Until next time,


P.S Obviously we want everyone to attend the conference BUT if you are not able audio and video of the weekend will be for sale.  We’ll keep u posted! Stay tuned for all the excitement…

  4. Wow wow wow this is SO great!! I remember thinking (and still often think) about how I wished there were more resources for people prior to marriage. Like you said there’s a ton of resources once you’re married but not a lot before and I think tackling tough issues early on is key to good, healthy marriages. So excited to read about how everything turns out!


  5. Wow, this sounds incredible! What an amazing thing you are doing!
    I pray God brings the right people to hear the words that y’all will share!


  6. Wow, this is a great announcement! This will really help so many young couples that need it. You and your husband sound like you’re a great team!


  7. Wow, Megan! That sounds wonderful! I agree, god-honoring relationships before and after marriage are severely under attack! Thanks for sharing this at Savoring Saturdays!
