My name is Heather, and I designed Family on Purpose as a resource for newlyweds (or soon-to-be-weds), and new and expectant parents. My mission is to help families start off well, and stay that way. I do this because I am passionate about marriage, pregnancy and birth, parenting, and family life. I want to help others live their best lives, especially in these areas!

I was trained as a Professional Christian Life Coach through Christian Coach Institute. I am not currently looking for coaching clients, instead focusing on serving others through my website. However, I am always open to new coaching clients, if they happen to find me!

Becoming a spouse and becoming a parent are two of the most important and precious beginnings in a person’s life. I am eager to help people as they walk through these exciting changes.


On a more personal note, I am a wife and mother myself. I have been married to my wonderful husband for seven years. I have one baby in Heaven, a four-year-old son, and a baby girl. I am a stay at home mom, and I’m also a birth educator.
