Through this blog, I hope to provide counsel, wisdom, and advice on how to best prepare for marriage and how to establish, build, and strengthen a firm foundation once you’re already married. In my job at Harris Creek, I get to work with many couples who are seriously dating and engaged, with couples who are newly married, and with couples in crisis. Through scottkedersha.com, I hope to counsel and equip the premarried and married. I hope you will share what you read with others who need to hear these same truths.The goal is to share two blog posts per week. The nature of the posts will be all things relationship – expectations, intimacy (spiritual, sexual, physical, emotional, relational), communication and conflict, and much more. If you know me, you know I love to read books and blogs. Therefore, in addition to relationship counsel, I also plan on sharing book reviews and notes, other helpful blog posts, and an assortment of posts on ministry, leadership, parenting, and wellness. My top passion is marriage ministry, but I like to write on a wide variety of topics.
About Scott Kedersha:
Sometimes your life lands in places where you never thought you’d land. I grew up in a small town in the suburbs of Philadelphia with a mom, step-dad, and brother who loved each other and loved me. After high school, I moved to North Carolina and attended Wake Forest University in Winston-Salem where I schooled a young Tim Duncan in how to play basketball—many years later he remains the greatest power forward in the history of the NBA, largely due to my Boss-like basketball coaching skills.
From North Carolina, I moved to Atlanta where everything in my life changed. While going to physical therapy school in Atlanta, three major things happened:
- After 24 godless years, it all changed when I trusted Christ as my Lord and Savior on February 13, 1998.
- I met the woman who would become my wife—the lovely Kristen Kedersha (@boymomkk), and
- I saw in action a healthy, Christ-centered local body of Christ (aka the church), that changed my paradigm of what the local church could and should be.
Kristen and I got married on September 15, 2001, and from there, we moved to Dallas so I could attend seminary. We thought we’d be in Texas for four years and then we would get the heck out of Dallas and Texas. 18 years and four boys later, we’re still in Texas. I served in Marriage Ministry at Watermark Community Church for 14 years and in July 2020, my family and I moved to Waco, TX where I serve as the Marriage Pastor at Harris Creek Baptist Church.
