What's the best relationship advice you’ve ever received?
The best relationship advice I have received is that love is a choice. It is something that you have to choose everyday with someone. Be sure to find someone that you can choose to love no matter what is happening in life.

What's your favorite part of working with the Marriage365 team? 
My favorite part of working with the M365 team is being able to work with incredible people that I believe in for a mission that is truly amazing. No other people I would rather be in this with to encourage healthy connection for others.

Getting to be a part of something that is really, physically, actively making a difference in marriages across the globe.

Vanessa Hogan, Life Coach

What's the best date you've ever had?
We’ve been on a lot of dates over the years, but my favorite kind of dates are our day dates when our boys are in school. We try to have them every Friday, we take a walk along the beach, have good, meaningful conversations and then get coffee or go to lunch.

What’s the best marriage advice you’ve ever received?
Love one another unconditionally, listen to understand one another and communicate early and often. Also, be a team when it comes to parenting your kids.

 

BRaNDON ESTRELLA, MAKING SITES WORK

What's the best date you've ever had?
Anytime we can get away from from the kids and just connect with each other is the best date for my wife and I. One of our favorite places for a quick day trip is the Getty Museum in Los Angeles. We love being able to stroll through the museum looking at art and talking about it over dinner at a great LA restaurant.

How did you and your spouse meet?
We met at work. I had worked for the company for 2 years when I saw my wife walk in on her first day. In that moment, I knew she was the one I was going to marry as long as I played it cool. Glad to say my plan worked and we were married in just over a year. And we're still going strong after 10 years of marriage!

Where did you and your spouse meet? 
Grace and I met at a little restaurant she managed in Bend, Oregon. I frequented the place but never thought she’d give me the time of day.

What's the best marriage advice you’ve ever received? 
Embrace the mundane. 

What’s your favorite part of working with the Marriage365 team? 
I appreciate everyone's motivation to help humans get along with other humans. We all need the help, tools and encouragement.

SHARYN SAKIMOTO, CUSTOMER SUCCESS

What’s the best date you’ve ever had?
Our first Valentine's Day date: dinner in Beverly Hills and 42nd Street at the Schubert Theater. Dinner was so romantic and we had front row seats to the show. Dinner and a show are still my favorite dates.

Where did you and your spouse meet?
Dan and I both worked at Disneyland. He was my supervisor, and he always seemed so kind and caring. It took me a while to realize it was because he was interested in me!

What do you and your spouse do for fun?
We both love to hike and spend time outdoors. We have spent most of our last vacations visiting National Parks. And, since I am a photographer, I have loved getting to photograph these beautiful places.

JORDAN AVNE, PROJECT MANAGER

Where did you and your spouse meet?
We were friends through church and a Bible study for years before we started dating. As our friendship grew, romance sparked. I later found out that for years she had known that we would end up together!

What's the best marriage advice you’ve ever received?
To always work on how we communicate with each other, and to always work to see the other person's perspective instead of just trying to explain your own point of view. We've learned a lot through practice, and we continue to learn how to better communicate with each other every day.

What’s your favorite part of working with the Marriage365 team?

Being part of impacting so many marriages for the good, and learning along the way myself. Marriage is so important, and it takes a lot of hard work and the right tools. Working with this team reminds me to put the work into my own marriage, and gives me a front-row seat to the tools that work!

When Marc (my now husband then boyfriend) surprised me with tickets to a lantern festival on my birthday weekend and proposed to me on the firework show.

Where did you and your spouse meet?
We got set up by friends at a Halloween party, he & his guys friends were dressing up as the Mario Party so me & my girlfriend dressed as the princesses. He was Mario & I was Princess Peach - meant to be!

What’s your favorite part of working with the Marriage365 team?
My favorite part about working with the M365 team is that I learn how to better my marriage and have real-life examples - Meygan & Casey!
