Gregory the Elder and Nonna of Nazianzus
These 4th-century saints were parents to three children, all of whom became saints -- notably, Gregory the Theologian. After their marriage, Nonna managed to convince her husband to convert from a Jewish sect to Christianity. His conversion was so strong, he later became bishop. The couple lived their lives according to their strong values, which they ultimately passed on to their children. Their strength was being able to listen to each other to find the right path.
