What Participants Are Saying
“What impressed us the most was the simplicity of the exercises and the big impact that is has in communicating effectively.”
“This weekend helped us establish better communication skills before our lives get even busier with kids and other things in life. This was a preemptive strike for us.”
“We have been struggling and we encountered miraculous breakthrough.”
“We signed up for this conference in the middle of a separation. The only thing holding us together was our two small kids and the memory of our love. Through this conference and being reminded of our original commitment we now have reunited in our marriage and plan to rededicate our life and family to the Lord.”
“It brought us back to some of the most basic and important beginnings of our relationship.”
“We are forever changed.
“We have broken through the walls that keep us from communicating.”
“The opportunities to speak face-to-face were invaluable. We laughed, cried and talked!”
“It was so productive to get to the heart of the real issues in a very safe environment.”
“We cried, we laughed and we just had a blast these past two days.”
“It was worth every ounce of planning to make this special time happen!”
“This experience was amazing.”
“It opened up a lot of emotions and tenderness. I wasn’t uncomfortable in the end.”
In the challenge of overbooked lives and crowded calendars, we see couples and families existing and surviving, but not engaged in all that is available for them. Dreams have been displaced by disappointment, and intimacy has been exchanged for rushed conversations and busyness. We believe there is more.

Many engage in the battle of life but do not know how to engage in their marriage. Our society has targeted marriage to be an old fashioned and out-of-date choice as the culture tries to redefine our homes and values. We will point out that working side by side is not the same as taking time to turn face to face in covenant love and purpose. It is time to engage in marriage and the blessings and promises that come with it.
Our Commitment to You
- We will work diligently to create a safe environment for growth and lay a foundation based on biblical truth and covenant love.
- We will work closely with the host organization about specific event details and related logistics as needed.
- We will provide a list of items needed for the success of the marriage event, including technical instructions for the AV team.
- We will provide promotional items to help advertise the event.
- We will be available to discuss important details with event planners.
Audio Sound Bites
Here are two audio sound bites excerpted from an Engaged in Marriage Seminar.
A Little About Us
We have found the opportunity in our own marriage to intertwine our diverse gifts to effectively communicate with and encourage others. Through teaching and a humorous motivational style we have reason to inspire leaders, families and individuals, nationally and internationally, with a message of valuing life, embracing the potential of the home, delighting in godly principles and becoming channels of influence toward fulfilling a high sense of purpose.
We speak at conferences, conventions, corporations, churches and lead marriage and family seminars. We are frequent banquet speakers for non-profit corporations and outreach events and are guests on TV and radio, which include Life Today with James and Betty Robison, CBN Network, and other media appearances. Some recent engagements have also included Focus on the Family, Care Net Convention, Heartbeat International, The Justice Foundation.
Part of our resume includes thirteen years of pastoring, co-hosting a weekly television show, founding and administrating a Christian school, and authoring multiple published books. We have also founded Generations Global, a national and international outreach organization with a multi-generational vision to motivate and inspire others. We also taught Marriage and Family for three years at Christ For The Nations Institute in Dallas where we delivered 48 presentations per semester on this important subject to classes as large as 180.
Gail’s signature book Seeing Beyond, with foreword by Zig Ziglar, has had great reviews. Her personal story of how she lost her eyesight and the resulting impact on our family is amazing and challenges the reader to have a bigger vision. We will celebrate our 35th wedding anniversary in the spring and enjoy our five miracle children, which the doctors said we would never have! Two grandsons add incredible joy to our family.
We live in Dallas, Texas.
What You Can Expect
We combine our strengths of teaching and encouragement to guide couples to share with each other through intentional conversations on a face-to-face basis. Participants will be in a safe place where they will be led to new depths of communication and understanding. Helpful tools will re-engage couples of all ages and backgrounds no matter the length of their marriage. Gail helps to facilitate the customized exercises for the couples while adding inspiration, challenge, encouragement and humor. Tony will lay a strong foundation on the covenant of marriage and add new tools for improved communication, resolving conflict and understanding each other. All benefit as hearts are reunited and eyes opened. We will be available to personally connect with the couples during breaks and at meals. Our strategy is based on our passion to help couples “engage in marriage” with the hopes of stronger relationships and households that impact generations yet to come.
