About the Weekend to Remember
Two-and-a-half day weekend getaway for couples.
Life has a way of overwhelming a marriage. Jobs, kids, activities, errands. Before you know it, checking your e-mail is more important than carving out a date night. FamilyLife’s Weekend to Remember® marriage getaway is a chance to make a change. It’s a time to rediscover each other and find more intimacy in your life together.
When you arrive for the weekend, we’ll help you step away from daily life. Cell phones are turned off. To-do lists are forgotten. You'll find it's a warm, engaging environment that’s all about making progress in your marriage, not placing blame.
What you and your spouse will hear during the Weekend to Remember® is not just one couple’s opinion on marriage. Instead, it is the result of more than three decades of biblical research by a team of men and women who distilled what it takes to have a successful marriage and family.
The Weekend to Remember getaway is not a large counseling session, and you will not be asked to participate in small groups. Rather, you will receive marriage-changing principles that you can take home and apply to your daily lives that will strengthen your marriage. During the weekend, you will learn how to:
- Receive your spouse as a gift.
- Clarify your role as a husband or wife.
- Resolve conflict in the relationship.
- Maintain a vital sexual connection.
- Express forgiveness to one another.
- Increase your commitment, creating an even deeper level of intimacy.
Our speakers will show you exactly how to pursue a marriage that really works through stories of their own breakthroughs and blunders. Every couple drives away with a roadmap to a great marriage. We want you to leave the weekend with encouragement, hope, and practical tools to build and grow your relationship. That’s why we call this a Weekend to Remember.
