Hi There

I'm Kaylene. I love God, and I love people. 


As a girl I daydreamed about falling in love, getting married, having a family, and all that good stuff. (Yes, I was the girl who owned a bride dress-up kit by the age of six). But as I grew, this daydream turned into an interest, which turned into a passion for studying relationships.


After getting my Master's degree in Family Science, becoming a Family Life Educator, and a few years teaching at the university level, I discovered the joy in passing along what I had learned about the nature of interpersonal relationships to others who wanted to expand their relationship "tool kit" the same way I did.

This blog has come to be the gathering place of various bits of wisdom I have gathered though my professional studies, personal interest, and lived experience. 

Through it all, I am reminded of one central truth: marriage is sacred, and is a mirror of Christ's love for us. By learning more about it, not only are we investing in our own relationships - we are learning more about how God wants to relate to us, too.

This is the divine reflection.

When I was writing last week’s post about Giving Your (Sex) Life To God, I was thinking a lot about what it means to embrace your sexuality in a way that is godly, and uplifting to your spouse.

During our first 2 years together, my husband and I found ourselves having the same conversation over and over.  And it always ended with us (okay, usually me) in tears and both of us reassuring one another that we really did love each other.
