Mark & Christie spoke for years with the Family Life Weekend To Remember conferences all across Canada. Currently they speak at various churches in the US as well as for Doing Family Right’s one day marriage conferences, Fusion 2:1.
Couples get married longing for the “happily ever after,” but are deeply disappointed when life and pain replace the joy. Many of us turn into bickering roommates who just get on each other’s nerves. How do we find the love we always longed for when we exchanged our vows? Is this what God was intending when He created the marriage relationship? Where is practical and Biblical teaching that actually transforms our marriage relationships for the glory of God?
Mark and Christie use their marriage as a platform to learn from. They aren’t afraid of being real in order to bring real biblical hope.
