Meet Chris & Linda Padgett...

Like many young Catholic couples today, we had no idea what we were getting into on our wedding day. We were totally unprepared for the often harsh realities of married life.

But after 30+ years of navigating life's ups and downs together, while mining the depths of the Church's very practial wisdom for marriage and family life, and applying that wisdom to our own lives, we can confidently affirm marriage as a vocation that leads to authentic happiness, fulfillment, and yes holiness.

Chris and Linda Padgett

Hi. We're Chris and Linda, and we're on a mission to empower couples to embrace and live the Church's vision for marriage and family life - sharing with them that same practical wisdom that is the foundation of all authentically happy and joy-filled marriages.

Chris holds a Master's degree in Theology from the Franciscan University of Steubenville, and a Licentiate in Sacred Theology from the International Marian Research Institute. He is currently a professor of Theology at Catholic Distance University.

Linda holds a Certificate in Spiritual Direction from the Cenacle School of Spiritual Direction.

Together they have written three popular books on marriage: Not Ready for Marriage, Not Ready for SexHoly Marriage, Happy Marriage; and Marriage & Ministry.
