—  By Ron Mainse  —


Marriage is the most important building block in the foundation of society, a foundation that God laid at the very beginning in the Garden of Eden. However, just like our first parents, every marriage is susceptible to the enemy infiltrating that sacred relationship to deceive and derail us from God’s perfect plan. Today, marriages are under attack like never before!  

Over the years, Ann and I have been broken-hearted whenever we see relationships torn apart, along with the resulting pain inflicted upon children. It’s so horribly devastating…and unnecessary! Many years ago, God gave us a glimpse into the future of our ministry together as a couple; we felt Him nudging our focus toward one day helping others strengthen their marriage relationships. 

That future is now! God has clearly directed our steps to lead Heart to Heart Marriage & Family Ministries (h2hliving.ca). For the last two years, Ann and I have been conducting many marriage seminars in churches, as well as holding our own marriage events. It is a fresh calling for this new season of our lives where our vision is “To see every marriage become a loving union that creates a safe family haven, building a legacy of hope for future generations.”  

With that vision in mind, God also gave us a vision for a new TV program focused on strengthening marriages… A BETTER US: The Journey After I Do, with Ron and Ann. This weekly, half-hour broadcast provides couples with HOPE through Bible-based teachings, honest discussions and practical tools, encouraging them that their marriage has a 100% chance of success…when it’s done God’s way!  

On A BETTER US, you’ll enjoy a variety of program elements, including short teachings from marriage experts and lively discussions around our kitchen island with married couples of various ages. We also feature video testimony vignettes of married couples who, with God’s help, have weathered storms in their relationship. 

Ann and I are thrilled to be producing A BETTER US in partnership with Crossroads Christian Communications Inc., the ministry founded by my father, David Mainse. Before Dad passed away, we shared with him our vision for a half-hour weekly TV program focused on strengthening marriages in Canada. Dad was very excited, and his strong encouragement to us was “Go for it!” Then he added,“God will provide His PRO-vision for your vision!”
