Since their parents are friends and they grew up in the same church, Braden and Kristen joke that their marriage was arranged. But the truth is Kristen found Braden to have too much hockey hair for her liking. So Braden cut off his luscious locks and the rest is history.
Kristen, a former high school science teacher, and Braden, an ordained pastor, have been married for 14 years and live in Edmonton. Together they are the Regional Directors of Alberta for FamilyLife Canada. They run Starting Marriage Strong, FamilyLife’s pre-marriage course, and Braden co-hosts Pure Victory Podcast helping individuals get free from porn.
