This is the story of a Christian home shaken by the disastrous impact of unfaithfulness; it is a collection of thoughts on faith, failure, and the power of redemption. Read, subscribe, share, and comment... Let's start a new conversation.
In this space, we want to offer a brief introduction to the authors of this blog so that our story has some context surrounding it. We are the Hartsfields -- Ray & Hannah. We were married on June 7th, 2008 and we have since brought two beautiful daughters into this world who light up our life daily. Our marriage has been quite a journey, and we are so humbled by the chance to share a glimpse of it with you through this platform. Beyond the role of father and husband, I (Ray) am a music teacher, worship leader, and singer/songwriter. Creativity of every sort is one of my chief passions, and I have always wanted to explore writing further, although I never had a real message until now. This blog has been quite a challenge for me but I've enjoyed it immensely. My wife Hannah is a stay-at-home mom and works in children's ministry with our church. She's gifted at all things organizational, crafty and aesthetic. She guides me in all of my creative efforts and her counsel is priceless to me. She has a servant's heart and a leader's intuition. We are both full-time college students as well. It's been a blessing to share our story for the world to see through this blog. This site, however, is just the beginning of our campaign. Hannah and I have a calling in our hearts to go a step further by using whatever platforms at our disposal for the redemption and healing of marriages. Beyond writing, we are also to beginning to delve into the platform of speaking and teaching. If you are interested in having us speak at an upcoming event, we would be glad to discuss it with you! Do you have an idea for an event, but you're not sure how to pull it off? Hannah and I have a great deal of experience in event planning as well. If you have an idea for an event in your area, we would be glad to explore the idea of helping with the planning process and speaking as well.
I have experience teaching in church, youth group, college ministry, men's ministry, and small group environments. Professional references are available upon request. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to inquire about having us speak in your area, and once again, thank you for reading.
