Married 4 Life Walk

An Initiative of Healing Hearts Healing Homes, Inc. to promote healthy marriages


The Married 4 Life Walk is an initiative striving to help couples of different religious denominations, ethnicities, and backgrounds to build strong marriage relationships. Healing Hearts Healing Homes, Inc. strives to play a pivotal role in strengthening marriages across the community through prayer for marriages and families, activities for married couples, and support services that promote unity in marriage and commitment to marriage.  The ultimate organizational objective is to change lives and impact families for generations to come by building strong Christian marriage relationships.


Through the Married 4 Life Walk, the organization’s purpose is to serve God by helping married couples strengthen the bond of marriage by promoting the powerful biblical principle of “Walking in Unity” with God throughout the marriage journey. “Can two people walk together without agreeing on the direction?” (Amos 3:3)

Healing Heart Healing Homes, Inc. intends to engage married couples across the community in activities that promote and reinforce the principle of “Walking in Unity” as it pertains to the bond between a husband, his wife, and God. The goal is for couples to embrace and apply this principle as well as let it bring strength to their marriages. We will help to fulfill this mission by leading married-centered activities that demonstrate this principle, such as the Marriage Walk.

Marriage Empowerment: Understanding the Need

Martez Layton, the visionary for the Married 4 Life Walk, found himself in a situation where he and his wife Woodrina were fighting for their marriage and family. Being a man full of faith, Martez heard the spirit of the Lord speak to his heart by instructing him, “to hold Woodrina’s hand each day and simply walk and talk with her.” Those simple walks strengthened their marriage and enabled them to overcome infidelity in their marriage. Both Martez and Woodrina witnessed firsthand the empowering results of the special bond that is created while simply taking the time to walk and talk hand in hand.

Marriage is the foundation for the family and families are the backbone to every community. Regardless of your race, gender, religious beliefs, or financial status, being a part of a family with a strong healthy marriage makes a world of a difference. There are numerous proven benefits for children raised in a home with married parents. Strong healthy marriages help to reduce poverty, crime, and failing grades in school, while improving physical and mental health.

The Married 4 Life Walk primarily focuses on marriages between a man and a woman but wants to bring all nationalities and those of different religious faiths into the community together.  The distance for the walk is 2 miles which will allow those of all ages to participate; completing the 2 miles represents finishing strong as a unit.

Overall, marriages in America are currently failing in drastic numbers. However, Healing Hearts Healing Homes, Inc. desires to come together with one purpose. This unity walk could be the match that lights the fire for couples to stay in the fight for their marriages.
