🧾️Certified Marriage Breakthrough Coach
I am delighted to introduce myself as a Christian Marriage Coach and ready to come alongside you and your spouse on your journey toward a thriving and Christ-centered marriage. I’d like to share a bit about my background and experiences that have shaped me into the coach I am today.
Prior to fully embracing my Christian faith, my life was marked by various struggles and challenges. I struggled with alcohol, addiction, self-worth, and a lack of discipline in certain areas of my life. These personal battles had a profound impact on my marriage and professional life. My actions caused turbulence and hindered growth in our relationship.
However, God’s grace intervened, and I experienced a profound transformation in my life. Embracing my Christian faith became the catalyst for positive change, enabling me to overcome my personal struggles and cultivate a marriage rooted in love, trust, and spiritual growth. This transformation has ignited a passion within us to help others navigate similar challenges and strengthen their marital bonds.
Before transitioning into Marriage Coaching, I enjoyed a diverse professional journey. I spent many years as a sales professional and over the last few years I have enjoyed a career as a corporate recruiter. I was a varsity athlete in high school and college and spent 8 years in the Army National Guard. These experiences taught me the values of dedication, teamwork, and perseverance, which have greatly influenced my Marriage Coaching approach. Additionally, my experience as a sales professional and corporate recruiter as well as our professional training have honed my ability to communicate effectively, actively listen, and understand the unique needs of individuals as married couples.
Drawing upon my own life experience, professional background, ands most importantly, the principles of Christian faith, I am committed to guiding you and your spouse towards a more fulfilling and harmonious marriage. Together with my wife, Samantha, we will explore practical strategies and biblical wisdom to build a strong foundation, foster emotional intimacy, and nurture a relationship that glorifies God.
"10 Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. 11 Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the [a]wiles of the devil. 12 For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of [b]the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. 13 Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.
14 Stand therefore, having girded your waist with truth, having put on the breastplate of righteousness, 15 and having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace; 16 above all, taking the shield of faith with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one. 17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God; 18 praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, being watchful to this end with all perseverance and supplication for all the saints—"
This is the bible verse that truly speaks to me most. When I first came to Christ, I was struggling with some things. I was emotionally damaged, and this verse absolutely spoke to me. This verse helped me to realize the power of prayer & I have held onto this verse as my go to since.
The most important Lesson I have learned from marriage:
There are so many things being married shows us about ourselves as well as about our spouse. For me, compromising has been huge for me. We married when I was in my early 40’s and I had never been married before, living the bachelor’s life. I was pretty set in my ways and coming to the understanding that my actions and emotions have a direct effect on my spouse and on our relationship took time, but absolutely strengthened our marriage.

Hi there, I am excited to introduce myself to you as the "whole heart in", crazy, spazzy “squirrel moments” woman I am. My given name is Samantha, but all my friends call me Sam. So, you, can call me Sam! I am honored to embark on this special journey with you to help you strengthen your marriage and cultivate more open communication between you and your spouse. I also, of course, am excited to help you bring back your spark and learn to have more fun throughout your marriage!
Growing up I had a vision for my life, I saw myself digging up dirt in varying kingdoms as an archeologist. Then my vision veered toward the direction of the animal kingdom, and I wanted to become a Veterinarian. However, as time carried on, I realized my calling was to to serve and help people. I get to help uncover hidden treasures in relationships and provide the support that individuals need. It's the best of both worlds!
For 20+ years I worked in the customer service in various supervisory roles. I have helped to foster positive changes and stronger teams. Additionally, it was through these roles, where, little did I know, God would send me my now-husband, Ron, in the most unlikely way.
Together, Ron and I have gone through many seasons of individual growth and growth as a couple. We have taken marriage classes together ourselves, and have also lead marriage classes to pass on all we have learned. One of my passions is leading classes for wives. These classes can help wives, including myself, learn how to be the "better half" of their marriage, and also how to be the best version of themselves that God designed them to be. God's design for wives is not to have women consistently "fix him" but instead to love and support him through all of his strengths and weaknesses.
Through my journey of growth, I’ve come into full understanding of my role, and my husband has acknowledged his part in this journey as well, to encourage, teach, and come alongside marriages looking to restore and/or grow.
My husband, Ron, and I attend the latest Marriage conferences and retreats to keep our marriage healthy/ We also love to learn new techniques to pass along which include continuing education in observation, listening, problem solving, and mediation skills.
“I can do all things through Him who strengthens me.”
I love this verse because it reminds me that no matter the circumstance I’m facing, I can be content because Christ gives me the strength to preserve in any situation.
“So they are no longer two, but one flesh. Therefore, what God has joined together, let no one separate.”
I hold this verse very close to me in my marriage. To me, this means the world is going to throw everything it has at us in vain. We’ve become one unified us, sharing one everything: One life, one reputation, one bed, one suffering, one budget, one family, one mission, it’s all become one. We are stronger together, as one. No one can sperate us, God is there!
