Rich and Kelly are intensely passionate about the stability and health of the marriage relationship as it navigates both the joys and hardships of sharing this life together. Living Hope Mountain Respite is laser focused on the marriage relationship as it navigates the deep grief of child loss, yet Rich and Kelly also speak at non-grief specific marriage events. They explore the Biblical model and design for this precious earthly relationship, while personally sharing experiences from their 32-year marriage. Their hearts' desire is to provide tools that both strengthen and encourage the marriage to achieve the fullness of God's design even amidst life's certain pressure, tensions, and hardships. Rich and Kelly have experience as keynote speakers for an entire weekend retreat, and as guest speakers focusing on a certain topic for 45-60 minutes. They have most recently been the keynote speakers at and FCA (Fellowship of Christian Athletes) Coaches Marriage Retreat in Keystone, Colorado (July 2022), and as guest speakers at private Christian counseling practice (July 2022). Rich and Kelly are not professional counselors but rather a husband and wife continuing to navigate their marriage journey. Their hope is that their unique experiences can somehow provide hope and encouragement to your marriage.
