This past weekend, my wife and Erin and I were blessed with the opportunity to have a couple of days away to go to FCA’s Coach and Spouse Conference in Lexington, KY. We have been able to attend this conference for the past five years and each time it has been a very refreshing time for us both in our marriage and spiritually. This year was no different as we were challenged to grow both in our relationship with God and each other. One of the things that we have already been more diligent about that we committed to do together this weekend, is daily spending time in prayer…together. At the end of each day we have been making sure to spend time in prayer, praying out loud together, before we go to bed. The opportunity to praise our God together and bring our needs and desires before Him is already making an impact. There were many other lessons from this weekend that we are going to be applying to our marriage. One of the things that was just very refreshing was being able to have lots of fellowship with other believing couples that we met. It was a good reminder that we not only need time away together, but also fellowship that comes from being with other believers. It’s one of those things that doesn’t always come easy living rurally and so it’s something we definitely want to do. Overall, I am just so thankful for time away to grow with my beautiful wife. Please pray for us as we seek to have a marriage where we always show the love Christ has for us to each other!
