After experiencing our own Turnaround in our marriage, and helping families in the church and in hospice for years, we have a deep passion to help families before it is too late.

More About the Lawrys

  • Having been married since 1995, and experiencing many years of struggle in our own marriage, we know the way out of the pain that comes with depression, anxiety, conflict, and disconnection. With the demands of ministry and the strain of adoption, we entered a season of extraordinary difficulty in our marriage and my (Scott's) health began to fail. We sought help from all angles including Christian retreats, counseling, books, and coaching, and we were finally able to break through and get our own marriage turnaround.
  • Having walked with couples for over 20 years and seeing the rise of divorce and disconnected marriages in the Church, we knew equipping and empowering couples and families was a huge need that was grossly unmet in the church.
  • Scott served as a Hospice Chaplain for a season and it was incredibly eye-opening to see how many couples and families literally waited until they were on their death bed before attempting to reconcile relationships and make things right in their marriage.
  • We believe that strong, healthy, God-honoring couples are the strongest witness to the world and one of the key instruments God uses to build His Kingdom through families, and it is our passion and mission to empower and equip as many Christian couples as possible to this end.
  • .
  • We utilize a beautiful and effective blend of Biblical counsel and wisdom, proven and tested neuroscience, and the power of transformational coaching to equip couples to have a strong, God-honoring marriage. We show them how to effectively bring about change in behavior, thinking, attitude, and heart posture, how to overcome conflict and improve communication, how to release and reverse years of negative feelings and poor thought patterns, and how to reprioritize life, family, and ministry to bring about a quick but lasting change in the marriage, even if there has been conflict, fighting, or infidelity for years or decades.
  • We are so thankful for our 6 children, despite years of infertility, and we are blessed with both adopted and biological children by God's grace.
  • When we're not coaching couples, you will find us spending time with my family and friends hiking the trails of East Tennessee, cooking, playing sports, board games, and ping-pong, reading a great book, laughing at Christian comedians, or enjoying the beautiful outdoors.
  • Church life is very important to us and it is our joy to host a small group in our home on Sunday nights.
