Meet Mike and Julie

Our Story

We knew God was on our side when we walked down the aisle in June of 2011. We both had been married previously and had children, so this was a big step for us!

We were blessed to have excellent pre-marriage instruction from our Pastor! We knew what God expected of us. We knew we needed His help and Godly resources. We were committed to doing marriage God’s way.

A few months after our marriage, another pastor encouraged us to attend a FamilyLife® marriage conference. At the Weekend to Remember event, we found ourselves encouraged and excited from a litany of outstanding speakers who taught a Godly model for “Oneness” in marriage. This was exactly what we were looking for!

For the next several years, Julie and I have taken many of the programs that you see highlighted on this website. Soon, we were facilitating small groups in our home and then at our church. God has blessed us and our marriage!

In 2018 we joined the volunteer staff for Weekend to Remember and were moved by the opportunity to pray for hundreds of attendees. We prepared for months prior to the event!

In late 2019 we began the application process as “Affiliate Staff” with FamilyLife® to help launch Michigan Local – and join other “Local” teams around the country. A brand new branch of FamilyLife®.

We are currently in the process of raising support to allow us to join God in bringing materials, programs, and events to the communities in Michigan.
