was the first time in over 20 years that we have taken time to get away
without kids. What a greate opportunity to reconnect with my soul-mate
and best friend! My wife and I have been married almost 24 years. We
are both great servant leaders – great at serving others. But … lousy
at making our own relationship a priority. This conference has helped
us to prioritize our marriage so we can be more helpful to others!
This conference has
changed our lives and saved our marriage of 17 years. God met us right
here where we were and has helped us prioritize each other with our
focus on Him being at “THE CENTER”. We have hope! Thank you.

highlight of the weekend for me was the light, comfortable, relaxed
feel of learning how to be a Godly husband. It allowed me insight of
what marriage takes. This was absolutely amazing! I would recommend to any married or pre-married couple.
us work through some deep issues that have required discussion for a
long time. It was significant for us to stay at the hotel without our
kids to completely separate from our normal lives and focus entirely on
each other and our marriage.

This was my last ditch effort to save our marriage. Our divorce was to be final on Feb. 24th.
My husband has agreed to attend this seminar and told me last night we
can work things out after 21 years of marriage. Praise God!

are a blended family. We have 3 adopted children. Finally we are empty
nesters. FamilyLife has come along side us and assisted us greatly in
having us get this far. We have 4 grandchildren and realize the need for
Godly homes. This was a refreshing weekend away. We’ve been exhausted.
Now we feel we can assist.

were both married to our previous spouses for 30+ years before their
deaths so we have lots of experience to build our new marriage on, but
this weekend was specifically about “us” and helped us renew our
commitment in many areas to each other.

on God’s word and not a specific counselor’s training or opinion. Thank
you! We came here for help to get through a very hard time.

is the third year we’ve attended. Thanks to the free tickets we won 2
of the years from 95.9 (The Light). This year we brought 3 other
couples. Two years ago this conference saved me from a downward spiral
as an individual wife and mother. Thank God! Now I love to see the
growth we’ve had as a couple in a short year. I’m glad to find new areas
that I need to work on to grow in our relationship.Married 15 years
Pastor comment: The getaway refreshed our marriage and energized us to face the future together. Married 11 years
Military comment: Helped prepare us for Josh’s upcoming deployment (12/10/12 to 12/10/13). Helped put us on the same page and gave us tools to use while gone!

I came thinking that our marriage was hanging by a thread – I leave knowing that Christ is that thread – the strongest strand in the cord of our marriage (Ecc. 4:12) and no matter how I “feel”, there is hope in Him who brought us together.
Praise the Lord!
Opened our eyes to what we need to do to have a successful marriage. My husband asked for forgiveness for abusing me. I pray that I can overcome these memories and
begin a new life with Greg.
I came uncertain if we would leave together. By the last day we decided to reconcile and give our marriage back to God trusting and believing He will rekindle our love
and make us stronger than ever.
It saved my marriage. My wife wanted a divorce so I asked her to come to this with me. And now we are staying married.
We are at a turning point in life. I resigned my position in the corporate world to become a full-time Christian educator. For the first time in years I now have the time to invest in things that, to my shame, I have sadly neglected. This conference provided the targets for me to focus on.
If I could write myself a note every day I would say through God my marriage is possible.
It created an everlasting passion to place God deeply in our lives to help guide us in the future when we are married. We have a new found love and respect for each
other and we cannot thank God and FamilyLife enough for this experience. We will be back!
He was romantic for the first time in 16 years of marriage.
