At FamilyLife Canada, they are attempting to answer those questions. Join them on November 21, 2020 for a one-day conference dedicated to the goal of helping you and your spouse grow a healthier, more joy-filled, and more resilient marriage.

Consider inviting one or two couples into your home, hosting a small event at your church, or just the two of you getting away and participating in this FREE video-on-demand marriage workshop on the weekend of November 20th.
