A Bit About Us
Who We Are
We believe that families are the backbone of our community. Live the Life is working to lower the divorce rate and strengthen marriages and families through skills-based relationship and marriage education and youth development programs. Live the Life has been supporting marriages in Florida for over 23 years and has provided access to relationship education to nearly 20,000 men and women in Northeast Florida. Our partners include non-profits, churches, schools, and corporations throughout Northeast Florida.
We use a powerful two-generation approach: Deploy proven marriage building resources to reduce the divorce rate in order to create a socially and economically prosperous community AND empower the next generation to make healthy choices that lead to generational success.
