About Heidi and Brad Mitchell

Authors and marriage speakers, Heidi and Brad Mitchell, have guided hundreds of couples toward fulfilling, thriving marriages. This is their story.

Welcome to

Build Your Marriage

a Special Message from Heidi and Brad

We’re Heidi and Brad, and it’s great to meet you! We want to share a little bit about ourselves. For years, we’ve been meeting with couples like you at Christian marriage conferences, couples’ retreats, and Church date-night events. We haven’t met a couple yet who wants disconnection, distrust, or a lack of intimacy in their marriage.

We want to help you build the marriage that God intended for you.

About our Marriage Built on Friendship

Our journey began when we were in elementary school. We didn’t like each other, but our families were close so we hung out a lot. It wasn’t until high school that we were attracted to each other. By then, we were living 1,000 miles apart. For four years, we developed a relationship through writing, phone calls, and reading the same devotions. Now, we’ve been married for 40 years…but it wasn’t always easy.

Like you, we’ve experienced the peaks and valleys of marriage. In fact, Build Your Marriage was established following a devastating season when we had to fight for our marriage. After an intense season of healing and working on our marriage, we determined to dedicate our lives to helping other couples build a Christ-centered marriage. Today, our goal is to equip and build marriages that last — thriving, joyful marriages that honor God and honor each other.

Marriage and Conference Speakers

Together, we have over 35 years of pastoral ministry experience. Brad continues to pastor a great church in Ohio that is extremely supportive of this mission to couples. He has a Master’s of Divinity from Trinity Evangelical Divinity School. We both graduated from Wheaton College. Our educational paths have given us a solid biblical framework from which we teach at Christian marriage conferences and couples’ retreats.

God’s Family Blessings

We love our family! We have three children who are married to incredible spouses, and three grandchildren who are a continual delight. We’re avid readers, exercise enthusiasts, and international travelers. As a couple, we set a goal to try and experience 80 countries by the time we’re 80.

Build Your Marriage on Mission

Our mission is to provide the best biblical resources we can to help you build your marriage with Christ at the center! We do this through:

Couples’ Retreats: You can see our marriage speaker menu of session topics here. And you can contact us to bring us to your community.

Marriage Resources: We’ve written nearly 300 searchable articles to help you grow closer in your marriage. You can find them on the Build Your Marriage blog.

Social Media: Almost every day we post something new to encourage, challenge, or resource you and your spouse. You can find those links at the bottom of each page.

Pastoral Counseling: We’ve teamed up with a dynamic couple who provide help to couples in need. You can learn more about them, their training, and their free initial session here.
