Ron and Nan Deal

Ron Deal is director of FamilyLife Blended, a division of FamilyLife. He is a family therapist and conference speaker specializing in marriage enrichment and stepfamily education.

Nan Deal has a degree in Early Childhood Education and is a teacher with over 25 years’ experience in public and private schools. She is a leader with a local Re-Generation ministry and together she and Ron lead a While We're Waiting support group for parents who have lost a child. Nan speaks with Ron in the Empowered to Love Marriage Seminar in which they share the principles that have helped transform their relationship from pride, great grief, and alcohol abuse. They know firsthand what it means to say that the old has passed away and the new has come.

Ron and Nan have been married since 1986 and have three boys. Their middle son Connor died unexpectedly in February 2009 at the age of 12. In his memory, the Deals built a therapeutic art center for the Touch a Life Foundation, a non-profit that rescues and rehabilitates children in Ghana, West Africa, from trafficking and child exploitation.
