Welcome to Love Hope Adventure! My name is Keelie and I married my high school sweetheart, Austin, when I was 21. Suffice it to say, we’ve been together for a LONG time! We developed the passion to help other couples in their relationship during a time when a lot of people we knew were going through difficulties in their marriage.
We felt so moved by the struggles of family, friends, and church members, that we decided to share lessons we’ve learned from being together since we were 16. Austin and I have been best friends for a long time and always worked hard at being intentional with each other in our relationship.
Our goal is to help you get the resources you need to have a better marriage relationship.
Austin and I have three amazing boys – Corbin, Tripp, and Braden. We homeschooled our boys for several years. They are now public school educated so that I can focus on running our website business and writing about marriage advice for couples.
For a number of years, Austin encouraged me to nurture that dream by starting a blog. One of the things that held me back from starting a blog was that I had no idea what to write about. After a lot of thought and prayer, it was clear that God was bringing tips for married people to the forefront of my mind. In 2014, I finally had the faith in myself to start Love Hope Adventure.
We Have a Passion to Help Married Couples
I grew up with parents that have a strong marriage. It was through their influence in our lives that Austin and I were able to build the marriage that we have. We were invested in strongly by them, and many other wonderful couples. Now, we want to do the same for others.
Both of us have a huge desire to help struggling married couples. God has put us in many positions over the years where we have had a chance to council with couples through difficult times in their lives.
Marriage Advice From a Christian Perspective
Austin and I are children of God and we are committed to sharing marriage advice through a Biblical lens. We hope that as you begin to understand what the scriptures have to say about sex and marriage, your relationship will become stronger.
Love, Hope, Adventure
It started out as a decorating idea. We were building a rustic look in our home, and decided to go with the idea of a few simple words painted on some reclaimed wood. We wanted three words that would be like a motto for our marriage and family.
Love is the foundation of our home. The mutual love between Austin and me is what started our relationship and family. Without it, nothing else makes sense.
Hope is that dogged sense that Austin and I share that we will get through, things will get better, and there is a happy ending coming. When one of us is struggling, the others remind them to hope.
Adventure is that wild-eyed look into the unknown that asks, “What’s over there!” In our marriage, and in our kids’ lives, we seek to cultivate a sense of wonder in the world. We want to be bold and courageous, never backing down from something new; whether it be a new recipe, or a new career. Adventure is out there!
Please join us on this journey of love, hope, and adventure as we tackle the hurdles in our own lives and hopefully shed some light and perspective on yours.
