They are regularly featured experts on a variety of media outlets and marriage-building programs around the world.

    Dustin and Bethany's passion is providing practical tools that you can use to keep your marriage fresh and fully "engaged" even when life gets hectic. They've been married for over 16 years and are proud parents to three very energetic kids under the age of twelve.

    You deserve your dream marriage, and it's Dustin and Bethany's mission to help you make it happen.
