Co-Founders of mysteryofparenthood.com

Trey and Stephanie enjoy speaking together on the sacrament of marriage and parenting. Their mission is to encourage and empower couples to rediscover the mystery of marriage and family life and to recommit to loving that mystery with strength, courage and enthusiasm. Together with Dr. Joseph White, Trey co-authored Together in God’s Love, a marriage preparation program published by Our Sunday Visitor. He has spoken and written extensively on the Sacraments and Spirituality, Married and Family Life, Sexuality, Parenting, Healthcare, Finances, Stewardship, and Leadership. Stephanie and Trey desire to help people concretely bridge the gap between the faith they profess and the lives they lead, helping them to see the meaning in their lives, to live meaningfully, and to be fully, consciously, and actively involved in the liturgy of their lives.  To that end, they host a weekly radio show called The Mystery of Parenthood on RED-C Radio that focuses on a Catholic approach to parenting in the 21st Century. The Cashions are parishioners of St. Mary’s Catholic Church in College Station. Trey and Stephanie have been married for over 30 years and have six children – Treivor, Madison, Greyson, and the triplets – Kolbe, Kennedy, and Kingsley.
