Rick and Denise Mathis were married Sunday, November 28th, 1976, in Miami. After being married for two years, we started our family. First came Shavonne, then Steven, Corey, Chanell and finally Kalima. All of our children are adults now and started their own family or still in the process of
starting a family. We enjoy spending time with our grandchildren, Kiyah being the oldest, then Kyle, Camauri, Jaiannah, Cameron and Skylar. Even though they were born, raised, educated and worked in Miami,Florida,they recently relocated to Huntsville, AL November of 2017.

We both are retired from Corporate America, Rick from Jackson Memorial after 32 years and Denise, retired from Ryder System, Inc after 26 years. Now we are experiencing walking in God’s purpose which is providing couples with the tools that will better prepare them for marriage and family life through the Blueprint for Marriage created by God

Even though we worked in the Corporate arena for over fifty years together, God has given us a gift and a passion for the health and welfare of couples and families. We decided to become Registered /Certified Premarital Counseling Source Providers for the Dade and Broward County areas and also along with our marriage experience, we became Certified Marriage Mentors and official notaries in the State of Florida, allowing us the privilege of joining couples in matrimony. We’ve been involved in Family Ministry for over 25 years, where we’ve served as Family Life Directors and held other various leadership positions.

Along with the development of the G.L.A.D. About Marriage Series which acronyms stand for Giving Love and Dedication, we conduct workshops, retreats and seminars at various churches in the area. The G.L.A.D. About Marriage Series is a four-week series that ministers to registered couples. We also like to help couples understand the difference as to how male & female’s approach to intimacy is different and how to use these differences to create a loving environment.
