FamilyLife Weekend to Remember events to be held Feb. 27 - March 1 and March 20 - 22 in Baltimore
BALTIMORE, Feb. 23 /PRNewswire/ -- FamilyLife, the global, donor-supported leader in marriage conferences, will present Weekend to Remember in Baltimore on Feb. 27 - March 1 and again March 20 - 22. The Weekend to Remember marriage conference aims to strengthen healthy marriages and heal troubled ones in an engaging, supportive and non-threatening environment.
While every couple is encouraged to attend, FamilyLife would like to extend a special invitation to area couples who have been hit especially hard by the economic crisis to attend the Weekend to Remember conference for free. Couples who have faced the loss of one or both jobs in the past six months can register by calling 1-800-FLTODAY. A limited number of free registrations will be available on a first-come, first-served basis.
"It's no secret that money issues are among the top causes of divorce, and with the economy the way it is, elevated financial problems are taking a very serious toll on many marriages and families," said FamilyLife President, CEO and Co-Founder Dr. Dennis Rainey. "Regardless of your financial situation, you need to make marriage a priority. In that spirit, our goal is to support couples during these uncertain times and equip them with the necessary communication and conflict resolution tools to survive this crisis as a team."
The Baltimore events are expected to be two of the largest events of the year, with more than 1,000 people expected to attend the two events. The Weekend to Remember conferences are being held at the Hyatt Regency Baltimore on the Inner Harbor Feb. 27 - March 1 and at the Baltimore Marriott Hunt Valley Inn on March 20 - 22.
"While this conference can assist those couples looking for an overhaul, it's also a positive way to impact and fine-tune all marriages," said Dr. Rainey. "We live in stressful, distracting times, and amid the blur of modern life it becomes alarmingly easy for couples to grow apart. That's why it's critical to strengthen your connection before the gap between you grows too wide. We developed the Weekend to Remember program to do just that -- help couples enhance and strengthen their most important earthly relationships."
In addition to the conferences, FamilyLife launched a 40-day Love Dare challenge beginning Feb. 14, that will help participants demonstrate their love to their spouses. Participants can receive daily Love Dares in the following ways:
