We've both rededicated and reminded ourselves of how important it is to complete each other. One evening while doing homework, my wife commented "you don't know what you are missing". The rippling effect of that statement shook me. I have a major responsibility as a husband, father, Christian and friend. This weekend reminded me that I don't want to "miss" anything.

We made love for the first time in 9 years. I thought he was rejecting me but I found out it was his insecurities not because of me or his supposed rejection of me, which was how I took it for all these years.

I was in tears at the discussion my husband and I had at lunch and I was ready to give up on the conference. We were told that it is alright to have conflict, and even though I didn't want to come back, I'm glad I did. We ended up having a great evening. I enjoyed my husband and the evening because of this weekend conference! Each speaker was great!

During the conference, my wife pulled away. It hurt our marriage. I believe, though, that this pain will result in long term growth.

I came looking to fix him or motivate him to lead our family. I realized how I don't encourage or respect him and how I need to change my attitude.

Realizing that my husband is a gift. I am not showing him, or our children that right now. With the Holy Spirit’s help, I will change. A breath and refill of oxygen to the drowning. Married 5 years
The highlight of the weekend was having my wife open up her needs that I knew nothing about, even after 36 years of marriage. We are having more intimate conversations. Things we took for granted and did not talk about, now we are.
Just before the final session (after the separate men’s and women’s sessions) my husband asked if he could pray for me – he had been empowered to take his husbandry of me to a new level. We are more of a team than ever before, and are ready to receive each other as God’s gift. Married 9 years
Having some of the best sex with my wife I’ve had since our honeymoon. Obviously the conversations we have had, commitments we’ve made to one another, and confessions we’ve shared with each other were super, but the sex was a stamp of approval on everything for me. This conference gave us an opportunity to be together apart from our kids with nothing to do but focus on each other and fall more deeply in love with each other for 44 hours straight.

This was the first time in over 20 years that we have taken time to get away without kids. What a greate opportunity to reconnect with my soul-mate and best friend! My wife and I have been married almost 24 years. We are both great servant leaders – great at serving others. But … lousy at making our own relationship a priority. This conference has helped us to prioritize our marriage so we can be more helpful to others!
