“LOVE IS NOT A FEELING;
IT’S A DECISION.
IT’S NOT SOMETHING
IT’S SOMETHING YOU
CHOOSE TO DO. ”
― Jimmy Evans with Marriage Today
OUR MISSION: Purposefully giving "Marriage Matters" Priority because MARRIAGE MATTERS
We are Bill and Jennifer Craft. We have been married since 1994 and have 3 amazing children. Early on in our marriage we learned the importance of purposefully investing in our marriage so that it continued to thrive and grow. We liken the analogy of car maintenance to marriage maintenance. If we don’t get tune ups on our car, rotate the tires, change the oil and fill it up with gas, our car will eventually quit working. Marriage Maintenance is the same way. God gives us the blueprint for marriage in His Word and provides us with all the necessary tools to not just maintain a healthy marriage but to have marriages that are Heaven on Earth…marriages that are a reflection of God’s Love.

2003...began attending Family Life Ministry events & classes with Dennis & Barbara Rainey.
2015...completed the Marriage On the Rock Certification Course with Jimmy Evans from Marriage Today.

We believe part of our purpose as a married couple is to share the God-given tools that we have sought after, use and continue to grow in, with seriously dating, engaged & married couples so that they may benefit and grow from what we have experienced and learned.
OUR PURPOSE is rooted in 2 Corinthians 1:3-4:
"Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves have received from God."
We are passionate about God and His awesome plan for marriage. We purposefully give "Marriage Matters" Priority because our marriage matters...YOUR MARRIAGE MATTERS.
Marriage Maintenance... because MARRIAGE MATTERS
"The health of a marriage depends more on preventative maintenance than on problem maintenance." (Rev. Keith Moore)
At Marriage Maintenance, we offer
Marriage Enrichment classes, seminars, speaking engagements & date nights
Marriage On the Rock Course
Blending Families Classes
OUR VISION comes from Matthew 7: 24-25…
"Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock. The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock."
Marriage Maintenance is about prioritizing marriage. It is purposeful and proactive in providing the "tools"...God's plan and Biblical truths...He has provided in His Word to have a blessed marriage. Our marriage isn’t just about us…it’s about something far greater. We want our marriage be a reflection of God’s love…a lighthouse for marriages…bringing all glory to Him. We all have a 100% success rate in marriage when we do it God's way. At Marriage Maintenance, we provide God’s blueprints and Biblical tools to build a firm foundation for a growing, thriving, loving marriage.
