Who We Are

Enriching the Family from Dating to Parenting & Caregiving


At the root of so many of the social issues in our world is the vulnerable state of the family, from formation to longevity. Dating has undergone a radical transformation due to technology, with the most successful platforms monetizing desire rather than cultivating commitment. While divorce rates are thankfully in decline, marriage rates are declining even faster. Weddings have shifted to center more on the experience of a singular, grand event than a celebration of a serious commitment to something long-lasting. And should individuals successfully establish a marriage and begin raising children, they enter a uniquely stressful season of life, trying to help their children navigate technology, social media, and achievement culture. Of course, they frequently do this without the presence of grandparents, who often live at a geographic and cultural distance, fearful of “being a burden” and less and less seen as sources of wisdom. Toward the end of life both elders and their children may wonder if old age is simply an inconvenience rather than an opportunity for the next generation to care, learn, and honor, affecting our approaches to everything from family leave to caregiving to the development of housing communities.

We're interested in ventures that advance the possibilities of forming and sustaining healthy marriages, deepen individuals’ connections to extended family and community, advocate and prioritize in-home caregiving, and develop covenantal practices of communication, wisdom, and courage as spouses, parents, and caregivers.
