Marriage, Relationships, Pre-Marital Counseling & Coaching
Kerry’s passion is to see healthy marriages. Marriages where wounded hearts are healed, hope is restored and the relationship, through Christ, becomes all that God intended. He believes that people need a safe, non-judgmental, grace-filled place to share their stories – a place where they can be loved back to life and learn to thrive in their true identity in Christ. As a young man, Kerry worked as a hairdresser in Scottsdale, AZ, where he learned to develop rapport with people from all walks of life. He went through a painful divorce which fostered a life-long desire to help himself and others build healthy, supportive, joyful and lasting relationships. In 1989, Kerry married Teresa and became a father to her four sons. They moved to North Idaho and ran a successful small business for 22 years while also serving as lay ministers and receiving training in biblical counseling. In 2011 Kerry and Teresa joined Grace Christian Fellowship where they grew into the lead pastor’s position. Kerry pursued his Master’s in Christian Therapy which he accomplished in 2016 at 68 years of age. He often says, “Don’t let age be an excuse (or anything else! LOL)” and is now considering pursuing his doctoral degree.
Kerry and his wife, Teresa, live in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho. Teresa also works at The Love Factor’s Newman Lake location as a family and parenting counselor. Together they love to host gatherings with their kids, 6 wonderful grandkids, friends and their little Yorkie, Barley.
