Meet the Team

Ryan and Kayla North have 6 children, 4 adopted from foster care. They spent 10 years as foster parents and have learned many of the things they share with families and churches in the trenches.

They are co-founders of One Big Happy Home and are considered experts on childhood trauma. Together they have developed training materials and programs for churches, schools, and parents educating them on trauma and its impacts. You can enroll in Illuminate, their Trauma Masterclass for parents, or Becoming Trauma-Informed their online training for churches.

The Norths have trained and mentored hundreds of ministry leaders and trainers in the United States and Canada. They are both TBRI Practitioners and speak at churches, conferences, and retreats nationwide.

Chris Turner and his wife, Kelly, have three boys, two of whom are adopted. Chris and Kelly are Empowered to Connect Parent Trainers. Chris is a Trauma Competent Caregiver and has traveled to Rwanda, the homeland of one of his sons, to work with orphans there using TBRI methods.

He loves all things Star Wars, especially Boba Fett, and has successfully immersed his boys in the franchise. He is also the host of The Big Fat Geek Podcast, and co-hosts and produces the Sneaky Good Podcast.
