This past weekend Mike and I attended a Love and Respect conference. His family helped us out and watched the kids overnight again (THANK YOU!!!) and we got to enjoy Friday evening and Saturday just learning and being together.
We always take advantage of the hours we get without kids and try to make the most of them so we got a hotel and ate out for breakfast. I love when I can escape my house!
Anyways... the message of Love and Respect was really great. If we can take what we learned and apply it our really good marriage can become REALLY GREAT! The basic message the Dr. Emerson Eggerichs presents is that in the Bible men are told to love their wives and women are told to respect their husbands. Eggerichs does a really great job at presenting both sides of the relationship fairly and driving home the point that neither is wrong, just different.
If this conference is available in your area I definitely recommend you go! And if you can't go to a conference then buy the book Love and Respect.
Make sure to check out their website... it has a lot of great information!
