Weekend to Remember

It's been 15 years coming, but Dan and I were able to escape last weekend to the Family Life Conference "Weekend to Remember." When we were first married, the pastor who performed our wedding did so only on the condition that we attend this conference our first year of marriage.

Needless to say, a lot has happened since we attended as newlyweds. For Christmas this year, I got Dan (really us) a gift certificate to attend the conference of his choice. It happened that one of the speakers in Lincoln this year was Bob Maddox. Bob was the director of Student Venture (part of Campus Crusade) in Gresham when I was in high school. He also later went on to be a pastor at the church I attended. It's been over 20 years, but it was a lot of fun to see and hear Bob speak again.

Dan and I thoroughly enjoyed the chance to just get away, recharge, eat really yummy food (sushi date night!) and focus on us, without the distractions of work, kids, housework, honey-do lists....

If you're getting married, you're just married, or you've been married 80 years, I highly recommend this weekend.
