A Great Adventure

After 37 years as a couple, we believe that marriage matters—practically, spiritually, and in every other way.

While marriage is one of the great adventures of life, it’s also one of the great challenges. That’s why we’ve dedicated our lives (and our marriage!) to helping others do more than merely survive their marriage, but to bring their marriage to life with passion, commitment, and intimacy.

You and your spouse can’t do this alone. You need community! So connect with us so we can join you on this great adventure!

Marriage matters

While each individual marriage is of infinite value, the institution and theology of marriage is then lens through which we see that value. Together with local churches, national ministries, authors and other couples, Between Two Trees is on a mission to strengthen the cultural foundations of marriage.

My wife and I have known Curt and Rhonda for years. Simply stated, the work they’ve done with couples at every level of closeness puts them in our top “1%” of marriage coaches in America.

Marriage takes work

Avoidance of conflict is the number one predictor of divorce. Every marriage can benefit from the guided conversations that take place within the context of a coaching environment. As your coaches, we create the time and space needed for you to be genuinely heard and for us to provide guidance, resources and tools that will make a difference, as soon as possible.

Curt and Rhonda bring an influential and relational presence to each retreat at which they speak. Their experience and compassion always has a dramatic effect on our guests and attendees.

Marriage has hope!

Curt and Rhonda have the gift of bringing this message home to the hearts of everyone who hears them speak. Whether hosting an event, giving the keynote presentation, or leading a seminar, the Curt and Rhonda Hamner share their own experiences as well as pass along the rich wisdom they’ve received over the years.

It was the retreat that turned everything around. And then from there what Between Two Trees really offered us was a new look on how it could work—how a couple who just seems like they’ve been down every road and tried everything could actually work through a problem. It opened my heart, opened my eyes, I saw my wife again for the first time.

Marriage needs community
