Marriage in the Second Half of Life: Grace, Grit, and Giggles!
Guests: Will and Cindy Goff, Marriage and Family Relations Specialists
Recorded THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 11, 2021
Special Guests: Will and Cindy Goff.
Dr. Will and Cindy Goff, Marriage and Family Relations Specialists: Will and Cindy founded Hope Marriage Ministries, a non-denominational non-profit ministry in 1998 and served couples throughout the United States and overseas for twenty years. The ministry included various aspects of marriage preparation, enrichment and restoration. They no longer administer the non-profit but remain actively engaged in marriage ministry in their church and partner with Christian Family Life marriage ministries. Will, a retired research immunologist and Cindy, a retired speech pathologist sensed God’s leading them into a new area of ministry during ‘retirement’. They sold their home in Idaho and moved to Florida where they are focusing on issues for couples in the second half of their marriage. They bring their professional and spiritual experiences together, in an effort to help couples refine God’s purpose for their marriage, prosper in their later years, and encourage younger couples on their journey. They are blessed with three children, their spouses, six grandchildren and three great grandchildren.
The Goffs recommend these resources to help you continue growing in your mature marriage:
