Why the Family Life Education Institute?
We recognized the need to strengthen marriages and families, and in 1998 combined the
collaborative vision of Certified Family Life Educators Natalie Goddard, Tamara Talbot,
and Misty Wise to establish the Family Life Education Institute. Our unique two-fold
mission is to strengthen marriage and the family by supporting family life educators
and promoting family life education. We do this by preparing tools and opportunities
for the training and networking of educators, as well as working to build awareness of
family life education and its potential for strengthening families.
Helping educators reach more families in better ways.
Our logo represents our fundamental belief in the family as the central unit
of society that encircles every individual and brings happiness and strength to the world.
In the five years since our origination, we have accomplished much to carry out our mission.

“Family Life Education Institute fills an important niche and a critical need within
the Family Life Education profession. Many who are knowledgeable about strong families
want to reach out, but lack the resources needed to offer assistance. Family Life Education
is a boom industry in this country, and these dedicated folks are on the ground floor.”
–Dr. Alan J. Hawkins, Director, Family Studies Center, Brigham Young University
“The value and importance of family life education in promoting a healthy society is
becoming increasingly evident. The Family Life Education Institute provides much needed
resources and networking opportunities for the growing number of family life education
