Hey there! We’re Logan and Jen. We started Surprised By Marriage because we want to encourage others that a holy marriage is possible between two very imperfect people, with the help of God’s grace.

We’ve had more struggles in our marriage than we expected, but now we know that it just takes small steps to grow closer together and to grow in faith. We’re still very much working on our own marriage, but we felt called to share our experiences and struggles in hopes that it will encourage others.

We hope this will be a place of support for couples to make their marriage a priority. Thanks for being here!


How to make date night

Marriage has its ups and downs, but sometimes a little perspective makes all the difference. Our blog addresses a variety of marriage topics, from the everyday to the life-changing, including incorporating faith in marriage, the effects of infertility and pregnancy on marriage, and everyday reflections on this vocation.


Once a week, we post a video about an aspect of marriage that has either surprised or affected us – and we suspect has surprised and affected other couples as well! Check out some videos on our Video page and check out our YouTube channel for more.
