About Married For Life
With the divorce rate in America at nearly 50%, I wanted to do something to encourage our married couples at our church. So in 2005 Yleen and I put together a couples get away in Branson. It was meant for a time of “resparking” an old flame as well as being encouraged from the Word of God.
The next year we invited a couple other churches and we gave away several prizes. That year we had 40 couples attend.
Our Married couples retreat seems to be just what couples want. We begin on Friday night around 7:30 which gives everyone time to arrive after work and we begin Saturday morning around 9:00. We try to leave time for each couple to have some time to themselves.
We have had great success from businesses in Springfield, Marshfield, Buffalo, and Branson that donate prizes to give away. We’ve given away items such as 2 one day passes to Silver Dollar City, a full set of jewelry from Andrews Jewelry, meal for two from several restaurants, and many other prizes.
We hope you can make plans to attend the next
