Don’t Just Be In the Marriage Game. Go for the Championship!

The Balanced Cans Represent the Need for Balance across Six Crucial Areas of Marriage.

The Balanced Cans and the Need for Balance in Marriage

We had a great time at the recent marriage seminar at Thompsonville First Baptist Church in Thompsonville, Illinois.

One the things we stressed is that there is a need to be at least somewhat successful in each of six crucial areas of marriage.

In fact, the more you can be balanced across all of those areas, the greater degree of success you are likely to have in your marriage.

Pastor John Robinson

Pastor John Robinson Was a Great Host

Pastor John Robinson did a great job of hosting the event. He did more than double duty with many of the tasks he performed.

Also, Tracy Clem served us well by implementing some of the technical aspects of sound and PowerPoint.

Bro. John even did much of the preparation for the delicious meal that the couples enjoyed before getting into the actual content of the meeting.

Holding His Trusty Back Pack, Randy Was on a Mission to Convert Rhonda to a Love of Camping!

Randy told his infamous story about a hilarious camping trip that he took his family on, in which his mission was to convert his wife to a love of camping.

Many parallels can be drawn to requirements for a successful marriage from the joys and perils of camping trips.

In fact, each of the six keys to marital bliss find their presentation in an analogy to different aspects of the camping experience.

Randy and Rhonda Waiting to Go on Stage Again

Randy and Rhonda, Waiting to Go on Stage Again for the Closing Session

Aside from the men finding out what they and Michael Jordan had in common, the ladies found out that they had that trait also.

We had a couple of practical breakout sessions with some serious moments too, but for much of the evening, we could have our light-hearted moments–even as we looked at some serious topics.

We would love to have you come and join us at an event like this when we are in your area.
