Get To Know The Mayfields
Ryan & Cadrian live in central Arkansas where they enjoy having people in their home, traveling, and rewatching The Office. They started Marathon Marriages because they love helping couples set up their marriages for long-term success.
We know the world is full of sin and brokenness and that every person longs for love & acceptance.
Our family uses our time, talents, and treasures to offer Rest & Grace to the world so that people may find True Healing, Happiness, and Hope in the Good News of Jesus.
Our Family Pillars
We believe that God intended humanity to work from a place of rest. Rest, which is ultimately only found in Jesus, is the best way to live. We will not rush, hurry, or overburden our family with activities, commitments, or efforts to live up to the world’s expectations.
We believe that God designed time to function in a rhythmic way. Twenty-four hours in a day, 7 days in a week, etc. We will mark our time with regular rhythms and celebrations of holidays, giving stability to our family and those we interact with.
We believe that God has given us stewardship over everything we have. We will share our home, time, table, wisdom, and possessions with those God puts in our path.
We believe that God brought our family together on purpose and that we are better together than we are apart. We will work together to live out that purpose, integrating our individual lives to form our family-team.
We believe that God has given us each specific gifts. Ryan is a teacher and Cadrian is a shepherd. Together we can pastor people who are experiencing the highs and lows of life. We will rejoice with those who rejoice and weep with those who weep, and we will give counsel and guidance when given the opportunity.
