People go because…

At almost every event we get feedback from couples saying: “Fantastic! Every couple in the country needs to do this.” Of course we agree. Nearly everyone who goes to A Day Together seminar is there because someone invited them. It’s really worth making a bit of an effort to invite people because the day can […]

“We did it!”

These were the words of Ceri and Phil Keates after their first ever talk at a FamilyLife’s ‘A Day Together’. They got up in front of 17 couples at Grace Community Church, Manchester to share their story in the hope of inspiring and encouraging others in their own relationships. They described it as a ‘gut […]

A treat of a day in Chippenham

Have you looked under the bonnet recently?

Some feedback we had from our last ‘A Day Together’ event: “A great day to make time for each other. A much needed MOT” and someone else wrote “Great opportunity to look under the bonnet and see how you’re really doing in your marriage”. This got me thinking about the parallels between looking after our […]

How full is your “love tank”?

Every relationship has times when we feel on top of the world, there’s a close connection and lots of fun and laughter. Love is flourishing. Every relationship also has times when we feel distant, frustrated, angry perhaps, and all the fun seems to have leaked out. Imagine there’s a love tank with a ‘fuel gauge’ […]

How being brave can pay off…

How would you feel about coming to A Day Together? What would motivate you to come? We know (because people tell us afterwards) that many couples come because they want to invest in their relationship, make it stronger, help a marriage last a lifetime… Some couples come because they’re facing a challenge or are struggling.

Teamwork sprouts new things in Brussels

When Deb and Trace Gunsch heard that the divorce rate in Belgium is 70% they knew they had to do something. But what could one couple living in a major European city possibly do? Deb: “We contacted FamilyLife HQ to find out what was happening in Europe and were introduced to the work of FamilyLife […]

How to have a jolly holiday

A friend asked me a couple of weeks ago ‘What’s your ideal holiday with the family?’ My response was to laugh because in my head, those two phrases ‘ideal holiday’ and ‘family’ don’t go that well together. When I think ‘holiday’ I think sun, pool, a gripping book and good food. When I think family […]

Who are Vanessa and Haggai Mwiko?

Well, funny you should ask, Vanessa and Haggai recently joined the Familylife team on the Facilitators training day. They are full of life and passion for marriage and they have more than a few entertaining stories to share with couples during A Day Together(!) I’ll just say one word – Baboons. Anyway I caught up […]

A time for hope?

Spring is in the air and ‘Hope’ seems to be the word for A Day Together in Cambridge on Saturday 11th March. Beautiful spring flowers and blossom in the pretty village of Histon spread inside and vases of daffodils everywhere greet people as they arrive.     There were some nervous faces as 28 couples walked into […]
