A wife watches in anticipation for her uniformed husband to walk from the jet-bridge through the gate. She waits eagerly to be in his arms again. It's been a long year. She wonders what it will be like to be together again―in-person. Will it be like starting over?
Marriage has both ups and downs, joys and struggles. But for military families, we understand that your marriage looks different. Deployment, uncertainty, and constant transition add strain and stress to your relationship.
This is why Cru Military and FamilyLife have teamed up to plan special military-friendly Weekend to Remember getaways. The unique military culture requires a unique ministry.
The Weekend to Remember is a marriage getaway providing couples the messages they need to hear to encourage, inspire, challenge and refresh their relationship. Then one-on-one times provide an environment to process with each other how they can apply these messages and move toward deeper connection.
"I didn't know what to expect this weekend. However, I have fallen in love with my wife all over again, and I see how I can become the man she needs me to be. Thank you for a life-changing weekend in my marriage." –Air Force E-7

"I have been working on our marriage by myself for the last 15 years. I didn't think my husband would be willing to come, but he did. He had an open mind and heart, and we had a beautiful weekend. I couldn't fix anything alone, but together we will look forward to the next 40 years." –Married 15 years

"It brought us closer together especially in light of the fact that we had been separated 3 weeks after marriage for 13 months. It also greatly helped my husband to readjust and refocus on our marriage after such an extended deployment." –Married 1 year
