Ron DeHaas: Finding Hope and Building a Legacy after Losing His Entire Family

The Resilience Factor with Adrienne Richardson

Jan 2 2024 • 57 mins

In 1992 Ron DeHaas lost his wife and two young children in a fiery car accident.

Rather than him going into a deep depression and giving up hope of ever experiencing joy again, he created a business that saves marriages and families… and has helped over 300,000 men and women change their lives.

He is the founder of Covenant Eyes Inc - and internet accountability software.

This episode is for you if you or anyone in your life has faced deep grief, addiction or hopelessness. It’s also a beautiful story of redemption… something I know we all could be impacted by.


Ronald J. DeHaas founded Covenant Eyes, Inc. in 2000, and remains as CEO of that company. He also is director of a retreat and counseling center for clergy and missionaries, Nehemiah Ministries in Owosso, Michigan. In addition, he also is on the Board of the National Center on Sexual Exploitation in Washington D.C., the leading advocate fighting pornography and sexual exploitation of all forms.

Mr. DeHaas received a B.S. and M.S. from The Ohio State University (’70 and ’73) and is a Ph.D. Candidate from the University of Michigan.
