Our Heavenly Date Night

Our dear friends Juliana and Greg invited us to make a wonderful commitment.  Now, once a month for the next YEAR, Michael and I--along with them--will be going to what is affectionately called a Heavenly Date Night.  We had our first one in the month of February.

Our Heavenly Date Night begins with mass, followed by a free dinner with other married couples who range in age from their early 30's to late 70's.   Class is taught by a different couple each evening, and all of us are learning how to have a marriage that is nothing less than INCREDIBLY AWESOME.  It was an offer we couldn't refuse.

This month, we renewed our wedding vows, learned strategies for better communication, and promised to pray more together as a couple.  I'll admit that some of the goals have been challenging for us to meet in these first few weeks, but we're progressing.  We're learning.  We're communicating.  We're growing.  And through this, God willing, we will thrive.

Please join us in praying for the loving endurance of all marriages.  And if you and your spouse would like to learn along with us this year, the workbook can be purchased from The Crossroad Publishing Company.
