"THe only way two things Can become one is when both things sacrifice" - Jimmy Evans
Since founding MarriageToday in 1994, Jimmy and Karen Evans have encouraged and coached countless couples in building rewarding marriages and healthy homes. With more than 50% of unions in America ending in divorce, the Evans are committed to sharing proven truths that can make the most troubled marriage good, and any good marriage great.
They bring more than 25 years experience equipping and teaching couples to MarriageToday’s mission to restore the dream of marriage in America.
MarriageToday utilizes seminars, conferences, simulcasts and more than 100 marriage building resources, in pursuit of this vital mission. And leading the way in cultural impact is the ministry’s national television program, MarriageToday with Jimmy & Karen, which broadcasts to more than 100 million households in North America and more than 200 countries via the Internet. Whether couples are desperate to improve or save their marriages, solidify their blended families or build a more balanced, successful family, MarriageToday offers the help they need.
Jimmy and Karen know firsthand that no marriage is hopeless. The first few years of their own marriage were tumultuous and almost ended in divorce. Only by applying the principles that they now teach were they able to save their relationship. Today, after 40 years together, they understand that no matter how bleak a marriage may appear, every couple has a 100% chance of success in marriage. In fact, it can thrive!
“We’ve learned through personal experience that no matter how it may appear right now…no matter what kinds of challenges your marriage faces…no matter how high or thick the walls between you and your spouse may be…your relationship can be whole, fulfilling, exciting and strong,” Jimmy says. “And if it’s good now, it can get even better.”
