We are Aaron and Hannah Bunker and we have been on this crazy relationship journey together for over a decade. Since the beginning we knew that being in a relationship would take work but that the work is beautiful and worth the fight. We want our marriage and our family to be a lighthouse and shine as an example to others of how to love each other well. We have made many mistakes and have had many triumphs along our journey and it’s our heart to help others learn and grow through our struggles and victories.
A Stronger Knot is designed with the idea that although we are all different people, we can all have a marriage and family that continues to grow together with each other. The two of us have very different personalities and in many ways are opposites of the stereotypes you read in relationship books. However, we know our role and we encourage one another in the identity Christ has given us. When we work from our identity in Christ and know and support our partner’s identity in Christ, our marriage is more fulfilled. We don’t want to just survive marriage; we want to thrive in the midst of life’s chaos. We want you to laugh, cry, learn and grow from what we have to share. We long to share personal stories from our marriage and family dynamic, as well as clinical knowledge Aaron has learned from his profession as a counselor.
Aaron has also written a book, A Stronger Knot, and has partnered with Lucid Books to get the book edited and published. We funded the publishing of the book through a Kickstarter campaign and we’re excited that the book will be published in the fall of 2017!. Head over to our Kickstarter page to read all about the book, watch the video Hannah produced, and to help fund this amazing project we believe is going to change marriages.
Thanks for letting us into your home. We consider it an honor to be in your life and try to view our readers as an extension of our family. We love people and are excited about the opportunity to grow our extended family through the online world. Know this: We love you and are excited for the journey that you are on. We’re rooting for you.

A bit about Aaron…
As a licensed professional counselor who has the spiritual gift of being an exhorter, Aaron can be honest and direct, yet graceful and kind at the same time. Aaron enjoys having one on one deep conversations that are encouraging and challenging towards a person’s growth. He has a passion for helping making marriages stronger in order for them to look more like Christ. He has spent the last several years in full time counseling, working in both a church setting and secular private practice and desires to use this space to reach a bigger audience in order to help more marriages. If you stabbed Aaron he would bleed coffee. But please don’t do that. Aaron watches sports when he can and enjoys a round of golf if time allows. Aaron is honored to be the father of his twin kiddos who continue to remind him that he is imperfect in his love for them and that he has to lean on the perfect love of Christ in order to be an example for them.

A bit about Hannah…
With a degree in theatre and creative writing, creating runs deep in Hannah’s veins. While she has a lot of valuable content to offer this space, Hannah is the creative tech brain behind A Stronger Knot. She’s spent most of her adult life in some sort of media production (theatre, photography, writing) before staying home with their twins, Cason and Grace. Her goal is to live a fearless life where she works hard bringing to life ideas that make their home in her vivid imagination. She loves making videos, taking photos and writing for her website hannahbunker.com. She is passionate about environmental issues, zero waste living, and minimalism. When she’s not mothering or creating, you can find Hannah at any local coffee shop fueling her adoration for a gourmet cup of joe or stuck in traffic on the Houston freeways belting Adele.
