Marriage: How strong is yours?

If there is anything that fires me up and gets me passionate it is the subject of marriage.  We have had to grow through the valleys to learn how to love each other as God designed us to love. It is not always a feel good relationship. But it is so worth it to fight for your spouse and your family.  Rick and I have been involved in marriage ministry for over ten years but now we have been fueled by all of the stories we are hearing about broken marriages, about the fight to change the definition of marriage and by the number of families that are broken.  We will not stop fighting for marriages and loving couples through their challenges.

Recently we have been honored to join forces with Family Life and Noble Warriors. We are planning on partnering with churches in the Chesterfield/ Powhatan County area to hold a county wide marriage event this fall.  The Art of Marriage event will take place September 21-22 at Tomahawk Creek Middle School in Midlothian, VA.  We have a lot of work to do in order to hold this event.  We have been emailing and calling churches all over the area. We are holding a planning meeting on May 10 to put the team together.  We are also holding a training Art of Marriage on May 31-June 1 at our church: Village Church of Midlothian. Would you like to attend?

We could really use your prayers and support. If you are in the area let me know if you want to be a part of the team. If you live elsewhere, please keep this in your prayers. Marriages are under attack which means families and children are under attack.  Join us as we help to strengthen marriages!

In the meantime I am also working on my journal.  I hope to release it before the July 1 anniversary of Tonia’s death.  This has been a very tough labor of love. Thanks for walking this journey with me.
