Casey and I have known about family Life’s Weekend to Remember conference since before we were married. After 3 years of marriage, we finally attended one here in Nashville with about 15 other couples from our church. Although I had always thought we should go before, there’s a reason God had us wait until now. I can’t imagine trying to go through that conference with the place we were in a couple years ago. Well, I guess I can. Remember the Art of Marriage conference we did a while back? It did help us draw closer and have some much needed repair, but we kind of fought through most of it. We’ve come a long way since then.
Instead of learning how to talk to one another and rehashing old hurts, we were able to really focus on certain areas on which we need to improve. We had really great discussions about how to become better spouses and improve our marriage. I was so thankful for this opportunity and guidance that really helped us seek a new level of intimacy in marriage.
My biggest takeaways: If I believe that God loves me and wants what’s best for me then I must trust that my husband is God’s perfect provision for me. If I believe God loves my husband and desires his sanctification way more than I do, I must get out of the way and let the Big Guy Upstairs do His job.
Even if you are going through a really rough time or maybe you’ve been happily married for many years, this conference is for you. It’s just like a car. Maybe your marriage is an old beat up junker car that needs a serious rebuild or maybe it’s a shiny new Lexus that just needs a tune-up. Either way, it’s going to ride much better after you visit the mechanic. Your marriage deserves time and attention. So check the calendar and get there. You won’t regret it.
Oh, and don’t skip out on Project 3 unless you have to. It’s the best 😉
