"When child rearing is done from within the marriage, it will be done more effectively. Two heads are always better than one . . . when the children do not occupy the center of attention, they will be more independent and will therefore attract less attention to themselves."
— John Rosemond
Family psychologist, speaker, author of Parenting by The Book
At Happily Parenting, we are passionate about helping create strong, peaceful environments where marriage is the primary
relationship in the home. Through our conversations with parents, we often find that marriages have suffered as a result of
parenting from different views or simply neglect after children are born.
Children need parents who are true leaders and who are on the same page. They also need the security of having a front-row seat to a loving marriage.
What We Believe
We believe that God designed marriage to be a portrait of our relationship with Him. He also intends for husbands and wives to be companions, lovers, and partners. While parenting lasts for a season, God's plan is for marriage to last a lifetime.
Our hope is to encourage couples to find joy and contentment in their marriages-even through the parenting years!
This verse is repeated three times in the Bible and it's the only verse spoken by all three Persons of the Trinity!
"That is why a man leaves his father and mother and is united to his wife, and they become one flesh."
Genesis 2:24"For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh. So they are no longer two, but one flesh."
Mark 10:7-8"For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh."
What We Offer
As we provide private parent coaching, we sometimes receive requests for marriage coaching. As with parent coaching, marriage coaching is not counseling, therapy, or psychiatry. We apply the same principles that we use for parent coaching to coaching married couples.
Stacey and her husband and Andrea and her husband have a combined 33 happy years of marriage under their belts! They also continue to study the Bible as well as reputable Christian marriage books and courses. If we can help you strengthen your marriage as well as your parenting skills, please contact us!
