Bayside Marriage Coaching connects seasoned married couples (coaches) that have weathered the storms of marriage with younger couples (recipient couples) that are seeking encouragement in their marriage.
Through thought-provoking questions and conversations (not counseling), the marriage coach couple lovingly guides the recipient couple toward their goals in marriage and helps equip them with tools for building a thriving relationship.
