The rewards of courage

“Courage starts with showing up and letting ourselves be seen.” Brene Brown That is what 34 couples did on a cold Saturday in January. They showed up, not sure what to expect, to a couple’s seminar at All Souls in London. Some had travelled a fair distance, setting off early to arrive for a 10 […]

Toucan is LIVE!

We are excited to launch Toucan – a fresh and unique online experience for couples, giving tools to build a happier, healthier relationship. Most of us want our relationships to bring love, joy and meaning to our lives. A great relationship doesn’t happen by accident. We invest time and effort in our careers, hobbies, health […]

Does January really need to be ‘Divorce month’?

On a slow news day in January, this story is often wheeled out and it can make for pretty depressing reading – January is the month during which most divorces are filled. But does it really need to be like that? I did a little investigating and apparently, it’s true. Not only that, but the […]

One year down the line…

Charli Mathew shares her eye-opening experience attending A Day Together (ADT) before and after getting married. A Day Together in Newcastle in October was mine and Dave’s second time doing the course. Dave and I got married on the 17th July 2015 and we did ADT whilst we were engaged, almost exactly two years ago. […]

A perfect gift!

What’s the most important thing in your life? It’s a big question. There is a little part of me that wants to be flippant and say: chocolate! But, the honest answer is: relationships. My relationship with my Creator is number one. My relationships with family and friends come a close second. If I Google the […]

Remember, Remember, the 1st of October….

Ok, so I swapped a few words around there, but there are certainly some couples who will remember the 1st of October! We had 33 couples come along to A Day Together in Selly Oak and for some it was very memorable indeed. One attendee commented ‘This is an eye opening, life changing event’, while […]

What do the men think?

If every woman who said to me “I would love to come to A Day Together, that sounds brilliant” turned into a couple attending, our events would be sold out all over the country. For some reason A Day Together seems to appeal more to women than it does to men. We set out to […]

Growing the team in style!

Familylife are so thrilled to have trained four more facilitator couples this April. We had a fantastic time sharing the principles and vision of Familylife along with the ‘how to’s of preparing a talk. It was very exciting to bring together the trainers, the existing team and this bunch of newbies. Karen and Etiene Van […]

What is your “Love Language”?

What makes you feel most loved? Words of Affirmation? Acts of Service? Receiving Gifts? Quality Time? Physical Touch? The way we express and receive love is unique to each person. In his book “The Five Love Languages®”, author Gary Chapman showcases this through the five emotional love languages mentioned above: Words, Acts, Gifts, Time, and […]

FamilyLife comes to the East End

This is not a typical scene from Eastenders. Far from the Mitchell brothers having a bust up and Angie and Den yelling behind the bar at the Queen Vic (ok, it’s been a while since I watched it!) Familylife were aiming for scenes of couples respecting each other and listening to their partner’s point of […]
