About Marriage Transformation


Marriage Transformation is an educational service company whose mission is to dynamically empower individuals and couples to engage in skillful, character-based communications and actions that contribute to creating happy, unified, and lasting marriages.


Marriage Transformation is committed to empowering individuals and couples to see the value of marriage as a place of physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual well-being. Marriage preparation includes thoroughly knowing each other’s character and establishing a strong friendship. Equipped with knowledge and skills, couples are deeply engaged in creating high-quality marriages that are a stable foundation for families. The strength of these families contributes to society and towards the unification of one human family. Couples feel a deep respect for one another and each is responsible for their own words, actions, and personal growth. They build equality and unity through effective communication and use consultation for increasing understanding and making excellent decisions. They establish a culture of love and encouragement in their home while maintaining their couple connection through lighthearted and intimate interactions.


The founders in 2004 were spouses Susanne M. Alexander and Craig A. Farnsworth. Craig's soul flew to the Kingdom of God after his journey with brain cancer ended on July 1, 2009. Susanne is carrying on the work of the company. It began in the Cleveland, Ohio, USA, area and moved to the Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA, area in May 2012.

The story of Craig's life, transformation, and marriages told through poetry, journal entries, photography, and paintings: The Journey before cancer; The Journey after the cancer diagnosis

One of our consistent champions and financial supporters was Susanne's mother, Kay (Kathleen Hall Muttart), 1926-2016. Here is her funeral program and honoring.

Service - How You Can Help

Involvement in Social Action - The Betterment of Marriage

Guidance: " seems appropriate that the friends everywhere would reflect on the nature of the contributions which their growing, vibrant communities will make to the material and spiritual progress of society.  In this respect, it will prove fruitful to think in terms of two interconnected, mutually reinforcing areas of activity:  involvement in social action and participation in the prevalent discourses of society." (Universal House of Justice, Ridván 2010)
