Hi!

We're Adam and Karissa King

And helping married couples thrive is our FAVORITE!

What does it take to have a really good marriage?

People say stuff like:

  • "Just trust God"
  • "Hang in there - things will work out somehow."
  • "All you need is love."

It's true that couples need faith, hope and love. But a great marriage needs even more. We learned that as newlyweds. Because we grew up in good-church homes, we assumed marriage would be a piece of (wedding) cake.

LOL! We're both oldest children - and strong willed too! We quickly discovered we needed MAJOR help in so many areas-our communication habits, our conflict resolution skills, our finances, sex life, and more.

Early in our marriage, we worked with teens and helped lead music at our church. Even though we loved that, we wanted to deepen our relationship AND help other couples grow too.

So, that's what we've done for most our 16 years of married life: work with married couples and help individuals struggling with depression, anxiety, and various addictions (especially addiction to pornography.)

That and become the proud parents of Adeline and Forest!

Why should anyone trust us?

Karissa has a Master's degree in Counseling Psychology and a PhD in Theology and Biblical interpretation. She is a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist.

Adam has a Masters degree in Philosophy and Christian Apologetics and is a Certified Life Coach.

We're also certified as Prepare/Enrich (P/E) marriage counselors, we're Gottman-trained, and we both taught at Wilson University.

Together we've counseled thousands of couples, and led dozens of marriage events and retreats.

We host a weekly podcast that has been downloaded more than 1.5 million times! And we're constantly developing popular new resources for couples and families...

What's our guiding philosophy?

It's a question, actually. "Why be married and just get by, when you can have a marriage that's intimate, adventurous, and purposeful?"

We figure you want that kind of marriage or you wouldn't be here on our site. Good for you!

You should know that DYMC is a no-judgment zone. This is a place where, if you don't love the marriage story you've written so far, you can start writing a better one today!

Hey, we're glad you're here... and we hope you'll stick around!

It's true that couples need faith, hope and love. But a great marriage needs even more. We learned that as newlyweds. Because we grew up in good-church homes, we assumed marriage would be a (giant) piece of (wedding) cake.
