Your Marriage…What’s in Your Rearview Mirror? (RVM)

Taking a moment to reflect on your marriage is much like looking in a rearview mirror! There are blissful horizons and memorable sunsets that bring joy to each of your souls. The history of your travels together reminds each couple of progress, excitement, and dreams that have been fulfilled.

Your journey of marriage may have regrets; ignored detours that could have led to great adventures, and fond celebrations. Often what is seen in reflections are Road Blocks, Construction Zones, Ten-Car Pileups, Bridge Crossings and missed Rest Stops.

Stop the hectic drive of family life for a period of refueling, restoration, and renewal. With a passion to encourage marriages, join Gil and Brenda Stuart as they share about hazards, rest stops and a ten-car pileup! Their dual presentation style addresses, head-on, tough issues. Rather than waiting until they get home (and forget), couples will have time to talk with each other as new concepts are shared. Any marriage will benefit and gain insight from this seminar.

You will laugh, be challenged and encouraged. Enjoy this rest stop!

Session One: Bridge Crossings

Session One: Road Blocks

Hume Lake Spring Marriage Retreat

“Gil and Brenda are such a joy to work with! It is rare to have a couple willing to both handle the speaking for an event, yet also give so much time and energy into individual appointments and conversations with our guests. We consistently heard about their kindness and humility in helping couples work through issues in their marriage. They teach in a practical and highly applicable manner and made a great impression on our guests.”
