The Couple Project

We, Nathan and Kelli, started “The Couple Project” in 2019. Our goal is to learn how to improve our relationship.

With a secondary goal to share what we learn, with you.

Who are we? Husband and Wife. Married at 19. Recently celebrated 25 years of marriage. In the process of raising 8 children (5 left at home).

“The Couple Project” has a specific theme for each month. During that month we study that theme, create specific goals, and then exercise our couple muscles to become stronger.

We also write a weekly newsletter where we share anecdotes from our lives, as well as quotes and information from the books and articles we have been studying.
