The B.Y.M Letters is written and compiled by Willie Quan.
Marriage and Family has been a topic dear to his heart since
the early 90s—he knows it’s a calling that God has put deep
within his heart. He holds a B.A. Degree in Speech
Communications from San Francisco State University. He has
attended Christ For The Nations Institute (CNFI) in Dallas,
Texas. There he completed CFNI’s 2-year program and
received a Practical Theology Diploma. To learn more about
CFNI and its programs, please feel free to visit
He was blessed to also attend Focus On The Family’s one-
semester college program at the Focus On The Family
Institute. There his instructors imparted a deeper heart and
vision for the importance of family, faith, personal calling,
church and society. To learn more about the Focus On The
Family Institute, please feel free to visit

Willie does not consider himself an ‘expert’ on marriage and
family but has a passion to see marriages thrive. Considering
himself still a newlywed, he feels that he still has lots to
experience, learn, and apply in his own marriage. He enjoys
reading on the topic and desires to share the resources that
he has found helpful with others, particularly men.

Willie and his wife Elana live in the
San Francisco Bay Area. They
have no children yet, but look
forward to blessed experience of
becoming parents someday.
Married since 2002, the two enjoy
spending time together, breakfasts
out, traveling to new places, and encouraging one another
in their God given callings. Willie also enjoys golfing, hiking,
reading, learning, and encouraging others. Elana enjoys
teaching her Firm Foundations Bible Study, learning and
experiencing new things, designing jewelry, and spending
time with dear friends. As a couple, it is their desires to be
“salt and light” to all those around them. They envision their
home to be a place of nurture, ministry, refuge, and
blessing to each other, their families, and many others.
