Shortly afer our marriage in 1985, we attended our first marriage conference- "Weekend To Remember". It changed our lives!  From that time we've worked to create a conference that would serve as the catalyst for building Mighty Marriages, Prepared Parents, and Fantastic Families.

We have spent most of our married lives discovering and sharing the strategies, tools, and processes needed to promote God's Plan for Marriage and the Family.

Our efforts have culminated in this event- It's called the Unbroken Marriage Conference. All across this country from city to city and state to state we bring thousands of couples- dating, engaged, married (happily or unhappily) remarried- together for a life changing journey leading to Relationship Success. 

Remember how exciting it was when you were first married?  Remember your wedding day?  You can have that same sense  Isn't it interesting that the average couple spends almost $30,000 and over 250 hours on the wedding (costofwedding.com) and less that 2 hours and $100 on their marriage?

You absolutely can't do what you don't know, but you can learn how to be a better husband, wife, father, and mother.  We know because we have walked this journey and still struggle daily.
Unbroken is not a large group counseling session or small group discussion. You won't be asked to share intimate details of your relationship with anyone.

You will listen to exciting, entertaining, and engaging talks from marriage experts, who will share in a completely open and transparent way about their struggles, their strategies, and how they learned ot succeed.

You leave the conference with an aresenal of powerful, Bible-based tools and skills you will use for years to come.
