The Art of Marriage - Coming to Stavanger!!

The past few weeks Jason and I have been staying busy in the evenings. We are now ready to reveal what God has put on our hearts to coordinate here in Norway... and we hope you'll keep it in your prayers!


A few years ago, Jason and I were struggling in our marriage. It was a rough patch and fortunately due to some fantastic people that God placed in our lives at the right time, He was able to save our marriage. We recently celebrate our sixth wedding anniversary and are still in awe and amazement at what God can do for marriages.

One of the main turning points for us was attending the Weekend to Remember by FamilyLife. Bret and Elizabeth Hern (who we visited in Budapest last October) were some of those key people that helped us get our marriage back on track. They have been working hard to promote The Art of Marriage, which is sort of a spinoff of the Weekend to Remember that was made to be more easily shared. Instead of an overnight conference with a speaker, it's a video series that can be done as a small group study, a Sunday school class, or even a 1.5 day conference.

We obviously have a soft spot for marriage conferences as a result of our own experience and journey. The idea was planted in our heads last year that it would be great to try and have The Art of Marriage here in Stavanger! However, with a new baby and returning to work, it didn't seem like we had time for anything else. But we felt the Lord urging us to re-consider. That we should reach out of our comfort zone. And frankly, we just couldn't stop ignoring the idea after praying about it off-and-on over the past few months so now...(drum roll please)... It's happening!

The Art of Marriage is coming to Stavanger!

Please visit The Art of Marriage - Stavanger website for more information about the event as well as a link to get registered to attend (And feel free to come visit Norway to see us and attend - we will even let you stay with us! ;-) )

We are excited, nervous, a bit anxious, and curious to see how The Art of Marriage will be received here in Norway. Please keep the event and us in your prayers as we work to coordinate everything and try to publicize as much as possible to reach people!
