Welcome to MarriageCoachLynn.com. I’m glad you stopped by! For as long as I can remember, relationships have always been important to me, whether personal or professional.
Over the years, I’ve read hundreds of books on marriage, relationships and leadership. I’ve had thousands of conversations. I’ve seen patterns and I think I have a solid assessment as to what people want and what makes them happy.
Although I’ve published books on three main topics: public speaking, marriage and childbirth, I have decided to focus my time and energy on marriage. Your marriage is your most important relationship. Friends, bosses and acquaintances will come and go throughout your lifetime, but your marriage is the one relationship that can bring you great joy, if you nurture it correctly.
My intent is to do my small part in bringing more sunshine into your marriage.
Would you agree that the health of the individual and his or her relationships can make or break our society? I desperately want to do whatever I can to make some type of impact.
I've hosted two podcasts and started the “Your Marriage Matters (YMM) Movement” for those who value lifelong, happy marriage. I served as a Marriage Coach from 2010-2020 and will focus my time and energy on writing books on marriage and childbirth for the next several years.
About Your Marriage Matters Podcast (2018-2019)
Are you ready to build an AMAZING marriage?! Are you ready to make your marriage great?! Then buckle up and prepare for liftoff because YOUR MARRIAGE MATTERS will take you on a journey to greater heights.
Ever since I can remember, I’ve been a marriage and family advocate. I understand patterns and I KNOW what causes marriages to fail and why they succeed. It’s not rocket science!
Listen regularly to YOUR MARRIAGE MATTERS with me, Marriage Coach Lynn and you will learn secrets, tips, skills and techniques that will help you strengthen your marriage, and in some cases, save it.
The topics are well thought out; there will be many series throughout the year, and together, we will take these tools and build a relationship you can count on, one that doesn’t seem so daunting or difficult to maintain. I have ideas for the show, but please, please, please share your comments, provide suggestions for topics, and post ratings and reviews. Your active participation will help make this show the best it can be.
I want you to thrive, not just survive. I want you to truly and deeply connect with your partner so that you will have a satisfying relationship, family life and overall happiness in other roles / aspects of your life. Does this sound good?
Do you realize that marriage is our most important relationship, yet few of us spend time or money on “marriage development?” We attend courses, conferences and training for our professions, hobbies and interests, but how do we nurture our marital union? YOUR MARRIAGE MATTERS is specially designed for “marital development.”
This podcast is revolutionary because it is more than a podcast - it’s a movement. Your Marriage Matters Movement is a community of like-minded people who value lifelong, happy marriage and are out to change the world, one amazing marriage at a time. Marriages are a pivotal part of society. We know it. Marriage is important to us individually because our well-being is directly attributed to our most significant relationship.
Stick around because you have questions; I have questions. I have answers; you have a lot of answers. Let’s build a community because your marriage matters. It matters to you and it matters to this culture. Your marriage 100%, absolutely matters.
More about Lynn
Lynn M. Griesemer combines her background in psychology, human resources, writing, speaking, leadership and sports to bring you a multi-faceted perspective. Happily married since 1985, she served as a Marriage Coach from 2010-2020 and hosted two podcasts over the years. She's currently focused on writing on marriage and childbirth.
Lynn homeschooled her six children from 1994-2016 and is a former Human Resources Manager and Army Officer. She has written books on public speaking, marriage and childbirth and is an internationally known author who is considered a leader/advocate of the controversial childbirth choice, "unassisted homebirth," (giving birth intentionally without a doctor or midwife).
She earned the highest award given by Toastmasters International, the Distinguished Toastmasters Medal (DTM), in 2006, after less than five years of membership. She designed “Speaking Made Easy: A Public Speaking Program for Middle School Students” and “Speak Up!: A Public Speaking Program for Young Adults” and served as the primary instructor to hundreds of children.
Community involvement and volunteerism are important to Lynn. She and her husband Bob have given presentations to over 1000 engaged people as volunteers for the Arlington Diocese's Conference for the Engaged Program (2005-2007). She also served as a volunteer counselor at Birthright of Charleston, South Carolina (Crisis Pregnancy Center). When her children were young, Lynn was an active participant and leader in local homeschool organizations.
She enjoyed a four year stint as a volunteer at Cub Run Recreation Center in Northern Virginia from 2011-2015. As a health and fitness advocate, Lynn was an award-winning triathlete for a few short years, lost 50 pounds in 2006-2007 and has kept most of it off (with major struggles here and there). She enjoyed serving as Assistant Organizer for Northern Virginia Raw Food Meet-Up Group (2008-2012, 1000+ members) during her ultimate health phase. She enjoys excellent health and admits she would like to lose a few pesky pounds that insist on hanging around.
"As a person who knows how to set and achieve goals, I feel I am an asset to the field of Marriage Coaching. I have advanced communication and interpersonal skills. I have the ability to help others challenge themselves. I am skilled in problem clarification, goal setting, developing action plans, helping clients to implement plans and ongoing evaluation. I help clients become doers, not reactors. Most of all, I am compassionate, creative and proficient at adapting to change."
"I'm an avid reader and researcher. For the past 30 years, I've averaged one non-fiction book per week on topics including business, leadership, management, human resources, public speaking, success, careers, wealth, charisma, motivation, inspiration, self-help, psychology, happiness, marriage, parenting, education, learning, homeschooling, family, religion, spirituality, Catholicism, mind-body connection, metaphysics, conspiracy theory, cults, feminism, health, weight, fitness, triathlons, sports, science, biology, raw foods, diabetes, addictions, genocide, war, sustainability, simple living and others. Phew! I try to keep current in my field, and as you can see, I am passionate about many things."
