(Check-in is at 5 p.m. and your first session begins at 7 p.m.)
This is your “welcome to the weekend”! So check in. Grab your breath. Pinch yourself: you really are away at last. Check out our bookstore of best-of-the-best resources (with a few fun goodies, too) to help you navigate life together. And get ready to enjoy yourself.
Our often-hilarious, let’s-get-real speakers will show you exactly how to pursue a marriage that really works―through stories of their own breakthroughs (and epic wipeouts). They’ll help you understand threats to your marriage (which you might not have known were even there), and what’s standing in the way of your communication. (Prepare to laugh a little, too.)
(Most Saturdays begin at 8:30 a.m., but check the schedule you received Friday just to be sure. There’s a break for lunch between 12:30-2 p.m., and sessions end before 5 p.m., to ensure you have plenty of time for date night!)
This your day for the boost your marriage has longed for. Today’s topics help you get closer to the marriage destination you’ve dreamed about, as well as advice on marriage must-haves, handling the sticky parts of marriage (i.e. conflict) in ways that actually work, and…marriage after dark. There’s a strong spiritual element, too, helping you glean principles from the Bible about a great marriage.
Insider tip: You’re finally away from the office, the dishes, the kids, the calendar. Make Date Night the highlight of your weekend. Reserve a romantic table for two. Surprise your spouse with a gift you’ve tucked away in your suitcase. Or simply hang out the “do not disturb” sign. (If you’re attending with friends, this evening’s marked “just the two of us”.)
(The last day of your Weekend begins at 8:30 a.m. and ends around noon.)
We split up into guys and ladies for real talk about being a husband and father, a wife and a mom. And then we look further ahead, to the ways your marriage could change your family–and this world–for the better. And you’re out in time for lunch.
