Your Family Coach

Hi, I’m Rodney Gage. 

I help families live with greater intention so they can succeed in what matters most in life. 

I believe, every family ends up somewhere, but few families end up somewhere on purpose.  

Like most couples, I would be safe to say, when you first fell in love with your spouse or when you started your family, the dream was to live “happily ever after” right? You wanted to experience all the good things that life has to offer. That’s the goal, right? We all want to be happy, successful and thrive in our most important relationships.

Unfortunately, even with the best of intensions, the demands of life and the unexpected twists and turns can cause us to drift or even feel pulled away from the most important people in our lives. The busyness, stress, and pressures we all face can negatively impact our marriage and family relationships.   

Like a car that has alignment issues when you take your hands off the steering wheel, the car will naturally drift. Sometimes there is even a pull that you feel that forces you to hold the steering wheel tighter so you don’t lose control.  

Perhaps you can relate. Maybe you are experiencing that drift in your marriage or with one of your children right now. Instead of being pulled closer together, you feel like you’re being pulled further apart. You’re in survival mode. You’re co-existing but there is no intimacy, connection, fulfillment or joy in your home. You may not even know how it happened, you just know things aren’t where they could be or should be. I call it the danger of D.R.I.F.T. (Disappointment. Regret. Isolation. Frustration. Tension.)

Perhaps there is a pull that you feel from the outside. 

  • Work demands 

  • Peer pressure

  • Negative influences

  • Too many extracurricular activities

  • Distractions

  • Etc. 

All of these challenges are causing conflict and problems on the inside.

  • Disappointment

  • Regret

  • Isolation

  • Frustration

  • Tension 

These negative emotions have you feeling overwhelmed, defeated, and emotionally exhausted from trying to keep your marriage and family from falling apart. 

This is where I come in. 

Over the past 30 years, I have devoted my life to helping families avoid the drift by making a shift that will transform their lives. As a traveling speaker, author and pastor, I have worked with people from all walks of life by helping them navigate through virtually every situation imaginable.  

I have been married for over 27 years to my amazing wife Michelle. We have been blessed with three beautiful and incredibly talented kids who are all adults now. All three are passionately pursuing God’s purpose for their lives.

I don’t pretend to position myself or our family as the “perfect family” by any means.  Believe me, I/we have made our own share of mistakes like everyone. Michelle and I were blessed and extremely fortunate to have a strong family heritage and legacy of faith growing up. Our faith and life experiences have certainly helped us weather many storms and to serve as an anchor to our family.  

Now, I am taking 30 years of experience and putting it into this website to serve as an ongoing source of help, encouragement and hope through weekly blogs, monthly podcasts, digital coaching, and online resources to strengthen and transform your family relationships.  My prayer is that you will take advantage of these tools that will help you make the shift from where you are to where you desire to be in your most important relationships.
