ROD AND SHERI HAIRSTON: OUR STORY
Hello! We're Rod and Sheri Hairston, Founders of Love Again Marriage Coaching & co-hosts of this couples retreat. We are passionate about seeing you win in your marriage/relationship. We help couples enjoy emotional wholeness, deeper intimacy and stronger connections.
Growing up, we both lacked healthy examples of marriage, family, and love relationships. When we got together, we bonded over a common desire to break cycles of dysfunction and trauma--we committed to creating a different path for our marriage and children.
Over the past 3 decades, we have walked through healing our individual brokenness, learning to forgive, navigating in-law relationships, communicating in love, growing in emotional intelligence, finding our own lanes, and learning to fully embrace each other’s personality types to grow in intimacy. And, with that, we've been blessed to equip and model for others the tools we've learned along the way.
For example, I (Rod) walked alongside tons of NFL couples as the Baltimore Ravens' Chaplain and Life Coach for 14 seasons, and thereafter as a private consultant. In addition, I am a marriage coach, author, and speaker with a Masters in counseling (focused on marriage and family). I teach frequently at conferences like PAO and Iron Sharpens Iron. Together, Sheri and I have counseled and poured into hundreds of couples--from student athletes on college campuses in the '90s (as former staff with Athletes in Action), to those we get to lead at Messiah Community Church, where we have pastored full-time since founding the church in 2005.
We are determined to love one another, and to choose love again, and again, and again. We invite you on this journey, where we'll empower you to do the same!
