How being brave can pay off…

How would you feel about coming to A Day Together? What would motivate you to come?

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.

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!
