Remember, Remember, the 1st of October….

Ok, so I swapped a few words around there, but there are certainly some couples who will rememrsz_1selly_oak-1ber 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 another said it was ‘A great day for investing in your marriage’.

We were thrilled to have new facilitators Chris and Lisa Murfin and Karen and Etienne van der Poll leading some of the sessions. It’s seems the couples were excited too as one delegate said that the highlight of the day for them was the ‘Honesty and vulnerability of the speakers’.

It was fantastic to be reminded that we are in this together. There are no expert couples, no one is doing everything perfectly. By investing in our relationships, we can ensure that we are on a journey towards a closer union and not just drifting apart. One person commented that the day was ‘A reaffirmation of the journey we are already on, but (we) can never underestimate the need to refresh and continue to grow together.’

We hope to see you at a future event. Don’t forget you can now buy gift certificates for those you love for A Day Together. They would make fantastic presents for the celebration in December that I can’t mention because it’s too soon.
