Join us for Cherrydale’s Marriage Conference
March 25, 2023 | 9:30 am-4:15 pm
Are you looking for opportunities to invest in your relationship and learn from seasoned couples? Need practical tools to better communicate, deal with conflict, and address key issues like sex? You are invited to Cherrydale’s all-day marriage conference!
What to Expect
It’s easy to let time with each other take second place to children or the endless list of things that “must get done.” Cherrydale’s marriage conference is called “A Day Together,” a FamilyLife UK seminar designed to provide you with a special time to listen, laugh, and learn more about each other… to talk and reconnect, whatever stage of life you are in.
You will enjoy quality communicators who will present practical relationship tools based on biblical principles, brought alive with personal stories and illustrations. There are personal application exercises and plenty of time to talk privately as a couple. Don’t worry, there are no group exercises, role plays, or reporting back about your relationship!
Whether your marriage is solid or you are struggling, you will leave inspired and equipped to strengthen and grow your relationship with a renewed sense of purpose and hope.
Five Great Sessions
‘A Day Together’ includes five sessions to equip you for some of the most important aspects of all relationships:
- Communicating Together – Developing a deeper understanding of each other
- Growing Together – Identifying what tends to pull us apart and what helps us to grow closer
- Resolving Conflict Together – Managing our disagreements in a healthy way
- Loving Together – Understanding each other’s needs and love languages
- Moving on Together – Discovering fresh ways to continue growing as a couple
Each session will include 30-40 minutes of teaching and 30 minutes for you and your spouse to talk privately about each session’s content.
Steve and Mae King
For almost 50 years of marriage, Steve and Mae King have said “I do” over and over again to the person each other is becoming. They describe themselves as “hope partners” through life’s long walk of parenting, ministry, and personal growth. Because they know that fulfilling, Christ-centered marriages do not happen by accident, they are hoping you will join them for “A Day Together” where you will learn how to bond in supporting each other, turn conflict into oneness, and grow in intimacy. They are excited to share with you how they have invited God’s truth and power to rekindle a godly passion in their marriage.
Teaching Sessions 1 and 3
Trace and Deb Gunsch
Trace and Deb Gunsch married in 1989 and have three adult children. They have supported FamilyLife in the US and Europe in many ways for over 20 years and joined the UK speaking team in 2018 when they lived in Belgium and the last of their children left for university. Deb and Trace have always had a heart for strengthening marriages and helping struggling couples. They have learned many relationship lessons from personal experience, sometimes painfully, and from wise mentors, usually far less painfully. Their desire is to serve the Lord by sharing those lessons to help other couples grow and flourish.
