Lifegiver aims to breathe life into military and first responder marriages

honest conversations

Lifegiver provides powerful content that restores service marriages impacted by the military and first responder lifestyle. The Lifegiver Podcast, blogs, and other content engages in honest conversations about tough topics that service marriages are dealing with on a daily basis. We are not afraid to cover topics like infidelity, trauma, exhaustion, and more.

Real Solutions

The military and first responder lifestyle requires a level of sacrifice and grit that can quickly take a toll on a couple. We have found that couples find hope and make better progress with a quick, solution-focused style of care and support that still gets to the root of the problem. Lifegiver provides coaching and consulting to individuals, couples, and families using a strengths approach that restores hope and intimacy in the marriage.

Competent resources

Families do not have time to search endlessly for resources that are specific to the military or first responder lifestyle. Lifegiver provides a one-stop shop to service families by pointing to resources that can enrich their wellbeing as well as culturally competent mental health clinicians through the Lifegiver Clinician Directory- a searchable database of clinicians who are passionate about service families.

The Lifegiver Manifest

What is a Lifegiver?

When we speak, we do not wound, but infuse the conversation with power, truth, and encouragement.

When we serve, our sacrifice inspires others to serve out of the overflow.

When we invest, we are fully present, accepting, and inspire others to be exactly who they are meant to be.

Our success does not intimidate, but motivates others to do what they never thought possible.

Brief encounters aim to inspire life in a soul that has lingered in darkness.

Our strength is often quiet, our warmth contagious, and our confidence is unwavering.

This, we know, cannot come from our own strength.  We believe it is found in humbly accepting our faults and seeing ourselves soberly in need of a God. We cannot breathe life without seeking the One whose breath created life. We cannot inspire without the One who inspires us to forgive. We cannot strengthen without the One who strengthens us.  We cannot learn to love without the One who is love.
