Motivated Marriage is dedicated to building God filled marriages through prayer, support, biblical instructions, along with couples pre-marital and marriage coaching and education. Motivated Marriage was founded in April 2013 by Christina Barnes. She had a vision that was placed on her heart for marriage through her personal struggles within her own marriage. Christina rededicated her life to Christ in November 2003 and He not only transformed Christina but her marriage as well. She has a burning desire to equip people in marriages and “Keep Marriage Sacred for the Next Generation.” Christina believes this is the time to break the cycle of divorce and separation and prepare couples for marriage, before it even starts! She opens up with her own struggles and how she was able to overcome and grow into the woman God has called her to.
Coming from a divorced home she wholeheartedly believes this is the time to break the cycle of divorce and separation. The enemy has attacked marriages too long and it’s time he is overcome and no longer have dominion in marriages.
Christina is a wife of 12 years to her knight and shinning armor Bill and mother to their five children. Christina and her husband are dedicated to bringing up their children according to the “Lord” and not the “World”. Bill and Christina spend much of their time homeschooling their kids along with training them biblical principles on debt, finances, marriage, and living a life pleasing to the Lord. In Christina’s past life she spent her career as a Loan Officer and Credit Repair Counselor and Bill utilized his finance degree working for a mutual fund company.
Bill and Christina realized that the world’s approach to debt and finances are not God’s approach. They are dedicated with helping people get free from financial oppression and teach a biblical approach to finances and marriage.
