Kevin and Paula Hartman

We have been living happily ever after since our journey began in 1975 when we graduated from Ball State University, married, and moved to Virginia to teach and attend seminary. Through the next 16 years of service in local churches we developed a passion for marriages and a longing to help others live their own happily ever after.

Since then we have had the privilege of developing, speaking at, and training others to present seminars such as “Communication in Your Marriage”, “Making Your Marriage Deployment Ready”, “Supernatural Marriage”, and “A Marriage to Die For.”  We also created a pre/early marriage mentor program and had the opportunity to work with over 300 pre-married couples which we were able to then share with other churches and train leadership.

I just wanted to thank Kevin and Paula again for a great conference! We so enjoyed it and the visuals will stick for a long time to come; the couples that went have really been buzzing about it!!!

Church Staff Member and Participant.

A lot has happened in our lives since that hot, humid summer night we said “I do”.  We have lived many different places and added a few more faces to our family picture:  two sons, two daughters-in-law, one daughter, a son-in-law, and four grandchildren.

What excites us about Marriage in the Raw is that we get to live and work in the arena of our passion…equipping couples to live happily ever after! Our mission as a couple is found in Acts 26:16: to be witnesses of what God has shown us.  We ask that you allow us to come alongside you to enjoy a relationship that is alive, strong and growing.  Whether you are thinking about getting married, wanting to grow your relationship to a new level, or facing a crisis in your relationship, we want to help.
