Jack & Donna Golston have been married for over 18 years. They have three adult children and nine grandchildren. Jack and Donna continually invest in their relationship and are lifelong learners. Jack and Donna attribute the strength of their marriage largely due to marriage mentoring. They regularly attend local and national conferences and workshops to continue growing in knowledge and use tools and techniques required to have and maintain healthy relationships.

Something that has kept them together is their mutual decision that divorce is not an option! Since 1992 they have made countless investments in youth, young adults and families through various community organizations as leaders, mentors and role models.

Jack and Donna were both ordained ministers through the Global Change Network in Aurora, CO. Jack was first ordained and licensed in 1995 at Greater Destiny Full Gospel Baptist Church in Aurora, CO under the Leadership of Reverend Mark Pollard.

Through their trainings and workshops, they offer safe, enjoyable, interactive sessions, where participants experience self discovery, develop problem solving techniques, communication skills and other useful tools that enhance any relationship. The responsibility to change is determined by an individuals willingness to implement the tools he or she has gained through various trainings and workshops into their everyday lives. Jack and Donna also offer follow up coaching and mentoring sessions to those who have completed their workshops. These private sessions are ongoing lasting up to one year or longer.

They use humor, transparency, personal stories in addition to research based material. The couples passion and authenticity are transcending to audiences with which they share. Jack and Donna believe that Healthy Marriages and Relationships are to be celebrated in good times, and cultivated in and through adversity. Conflict can be very healthy when people have tools and skills. They believe relationships can be fun when you know the fundamentals, and fundamentals translate to essentials!
