Weekend to Remember - Presented by Family Life Ministries - June 16-18, 2017, at Camelback Inn

A weekend for your marriage at the incredible Camelback Inn in Scottsdale.

Focus, Connect, & Discover

Jobs, kids, activities, errands and life has a way of overwhelming a marriage. Before you know it, other things are taking priority above the most important thing; your spouse and family. FamilyLife’s Weekend to Remember® marriage getaway is your chance to make a change. 

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, through the teaching and couple’s projects, 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. 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.
