Damon & Melanie Owens | How to Have a Strong Catholic Marriage | The Catholic Homeschool Podcast

This week, Paola is joined by Damon and Melanie Owens to discuss how to have a strong Catholic marriage, as well as their upcoming program: The EPIC Intimacy Challenge!

 

A FREE 4-day challenge crafted to help reignite the fire in your marriage.

Take just 10 minutes a day for four days and discover…

  • What the four levels of marital intimacy are and how to keep them from breaking down.
  • How to prevent intimacy and communication problems from occurring in the first place.
  • Proven techniques to strengthen physical and emotional connection.
  • Why even good marriages end, and how to “divorce proof” your marriage.

Homeschooling Parents, Catholic Speakers

Married 27 years, Damon and Melanie Owens are founders of Joyful Ever After and hosts of The Catholic Marriage Summit 2020. Since 1993, Melanie, full-time homeschooling mother of eight, and Damon, first executive director of the Theology of the Body Institute, have trained over 20,000 couples in marriage, NFP, and Theology of the Body.

Melanie earned her BA in Sociology at the University of California at Santa Barbara, and her MSW at the University of California at Berkeley. Presenters at the 2015 World Meeting of Families and the 2017 USCCB Convocation of Catholic Leaders, Damon and Melanie keep a full international speaking schedule at conferences, seminars, universities, high schools, seminaries, and parishes on the good news of marriage, sexuality, Theology of the Body, Theology of the Family, adoption, and NFP.

Damon has published numerous articles, appears regularly on many radio and television programs (EWTN, Catholic Answers, Ave Maria, Relevant Radio, Immaculate Heart Radio, ABC World News Tonight, CBS News, NPR), and has hosted and produced three 13-part television series for EWTN. He is also an accomplished gospel singer honored with a solo during the 1995 NJ Papal Mass at Giants Stadium presided by Pope St. John Paul II. In 2018, Pope Francis honored Damon with the papal Benemerenti Medal in recognition for his service to the Church in support of marriage and family. Damon and Melanie are the parents of eight and live outside of Philadelphia.
