We often say that marriage isn’t the easiest thing, it’s the hardest. But if couples – husbands and wives – are willing to work hard at it, marriage can become the greatest thing! In their upcoming book, The Right Combination, our friends Richard and Barbie Armenta take readers on an incredible journey of love, faith, and marriage done God’s way. By candidly opening up about their imperfect lives and their up and down relationship, the Armentas show us on a very personal level how trusting in God is the only way to succeed, not only in marriage but also in life. Whether you are single, divorced, married, or somewhere in between all of that, this book will inspire you to get the most out of God’s plan and purpose for your life, your relationships, and ultimately, your marriage.

Watching what God is doing in the speaking and writing ministries of Richard and Barbie Armenta is like coming alongside a prayer that is being answered in profound ways.  They are gifted communicators and they are a breath of fresh air in a world that desperately needs to know there is hope, love, joy, and renewed purpose after disappointment, discouragement, and divorce.  They exude a passion for Christ and a commitment to pointing men and women in the direction of biblical truth and new beginnings.  Whether together or individually, I highly recommend them as speakers at your next event.

Richard Armenta is a speaker, writer, and mentor.  It is his passion to share with others in the areas of overcoming addiction, divorce, and dating after divorce, specifically purity in dating.  In 2003, Richard surrendered everything to God including his dating life. Through his story, you will see that it is possible to date Gods way, even in today's culture.

He has spent many years in ministry work. He served 8 years as a Trainer/Mentor in the Senior High Ministry at Fellowship Church Grapevine.  He has also done mission work as part of an apartment ministry team where he lived in low-income housing serving the community and sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ. In 2014, Richard founded Irwin House, a Sober Living Home. After going through treatment himself and serving in many areas of ministry, he realized there are not enough good options in the market of recovery for individuals looking for a Faith Based solution. Richard is the proud husband to Barbie and father of a wonderful blended family with a beautiful daughter and three stepsons
