24k Gold Marriage was founded as a 501c3 non-profit organization to provide a safe place for couples to come for help. When couples come to us they know they will receive no-nonsense, straight-shooting, education, coaching and mentoring for all stages of marriage...we have references.
God has given the Iveys clear direction for 2017. Keep doing what we have been doing--helping make new marriages good, good ones better, and bad ones whole. Our sweet spot is teaching couples how to "get it right"... one family at a time.
Marriage 3.0 Revive - Restore - Renew
Life these days is more complicated than ever and families need help to survive. Demand for our concentrated weekends of learning how to create successful marriage and practice new skills is growing. We have seven couples looking to schedule a weekend in the New Year.
Financial stress is a major concern for most couples. Marriage education is just not in the budget. Much of the time we must scholarship those who come asking for help. We never turn anybody away.
A couple in crisis from another state called wanting help. They could not afford to come to Texas, but desperately wanted to learn what to do to save the mess in their marriage they had created...they were clueless and scared. We reached out to some of our alumni and they gave graciously, enough to fly them here for the weekend. It's revolutionizing their lives.
