"Weekend to Remember"

My husband and I had the opportunity to attend a "Weekend to Remember" conference this past weekend. Did we originally plan to go to this? No. Would we go again or recommend this conference to others? Yes.

We happened to win our trip through a Christian radio station. Our 7 year old wanted to go to the zoo. I started to look for free zoo tickets online and happened to find the contest page at WBCL. I didn't see any contests for zoo tickets but I decided to just sign-up for the current contest-"Weekend to Remember" conference registration. As I filled in my name, address etc. I noticed they asked how many years that we had been married. I filled in 24 and thought to myself that younger couples would probably benefit more.

The next day I received an email telling me that we had won. I emailed to thank WBCL and mentioned: "I was actually on your contest site looking to win Ft. Wayne Zoo tickets, but this is even better ;)" A few minutes later I received the following: "Guess what….just because…I am sending you 6 tickets to the zoo too!"

"Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above" James 1:17 We had been doubly blessed!

A little about the conference: It is awesome! It is biblicaly-based, it is not boring (I mean one of the speakers was a comedian on the side) and clips from movies are shown for examples of specific principles.

It is designed to bring you and your spouse closer together and to discuss things that you never have time to talk about. It challenges you to become the person God wants you be. And it gives you a game plan to take home with you. There is a reason that this conference has been around for such a long time. It works!
