Meet Our Family

We are so glad you are here! We are Colby and Amanda.

We have been married for 14 years. We live in Edmond, Oklahoma and we have 6 kids. Our daughter is 11 years old. And our 5 sons are 10, 9, 8, 4, and 2. We call our life "glorious chaos". It is amazing and messy and beautiful and wild and more. 

We are passionate about engaged couples, marriages, and families. We love creating events and resources to help them in whatever season they find themselves in. To live the engaged life is to be be intentional and present in your marriage and family. An engaged life is a thriving life.

A Little About Colby...

I am deeply passionate about people. I love helping people and serving people. I spent 10 years working with Young Life and loved every minute of it. I then transitioned to Life.Church and was a pastor there for 5 years. I recently stepped off the team to pursue our side passion full time. We have loved the opportunity to watch The Engaged Life grow. 

A few random things about me:
1. I am a certified SYMBIS instructor (Saving your Marriage Before It Starts)
2. I co-host a podcast called The Better Man with Dr. Kim Kimberling of Awesome Marriage. 
3. I have 4 chickens and 4 ducks. 
4. I love my wife. 
5. I may or may not have punched a hole in the wall out of frustration in my fatherhood. May or may not have been my finest moment. 

I look forward to getting to know you!
