Our MarriageWell East Facility
Hi, we’re Ray and Melody Yoder. We were on the marriage journey for 30 years when God did a miraculous work in our lives and helped us reconnect. We had fallen into the pattern of separate roles and had lost sight of each other. Over the decades our relationship had withered. Work, children and other responsibilities had diverted our focus. We felt more like roommates than intimate partners.
We searched out advice and resources for marriage and began praying together daily. We asked God for wisdom for our marriage and building family relationships. The more we prayed, the more answers we saw and the more we believed God heard and answered our prayers. It wasn’t easy. God wanted to do deep work in our hearts. We knew He was leading us, and as we obeyed and followed His leading, we were refined personally and our marriage grew and prospered.
God showed us his better plan for marriage, and gave us a spirit of adventure to explore all that God has for us in marriage. Now as we enjoy our 35th year of marriage, we can honestly say, we are more in love than we ever were. God continues to show us new ways to love and enjoy each other daily.
Our Passion for MarriageWell
As our marriage flourished, we felt a strong call to share what we learned with others. How could we help others discover the beauty in marriage that we were experiencing? After exploring several ways to start our own marriage ministry, God providentially led us to MarriageWell. We are truly thrilled to be the East coast partner as MarriageWell PA, where we are now coaching pre-married and married couples.
Our heart is to help couples:
- Enjoy marriages like God planned for us to enjoy.
- Thrive in marriage in ways you may never have imagined.
- Put romance back in your relationship.
- Have fun again and share, laugh, enjoy and appreciate your spouse.
- Learn to be more deeply intimate with your spouse.
- Build stronger relationships with children, building stronger families.
We are excited by all the future opportunities to help couples who are just planning to get married, those who may feel a need for a marriage tune up, and especially those who feel discouraged or feel like giving up. Our hope and prayer is for couples to realize the abundant life God promises, and marriages to be transformed by the power of God.
Ray and Melody Yoder
That was the decision we made during the darkest year of our marriage. The year was 1994, and we had reached the “fight or flight” crossroads. As difficult as it was, we chose to fight for our marriage. We didn’t know how things would get better but we vowed to keep working at it, get counseling and not give up. Over the next few years, God healed our marriage and gave us hope for our future. Never did we think that 10 years later He would start using us to mentor, counsel, and speak into the lives of other couples like He has. Now 20 years later, God has given us the huge vision for MarriageWell: to give marriages–new, old, and yet to be–the tools to flourish and grow. We aim to honor marriage and be a deep well of resources for couples. Just like any great marriage, the story of MarriageWell has many chapters to come, but our hope and prayer is that they hold many tales of redemption, grace, and love for couples across Ventura County and beyond.
We hope you’ll join us on the journey to change the culture of marriage.
