Marriage weekend



I spent the weekend with my hubby and my good friends at a marriage retreat. I know, I know, marriage retreats sound like a lot of hugging it out and crying and blaming...but that's just not how we roll. This was a very different approach to making your marriage a success than what you'd expect from a typical marriage retreat.

It was two days of incredible insight on marriage, men and women and how we relate and my favorite; laughing until I peed my Poise Pads. ( I really do have a peeing problem.) The teachings were from a series Laugh your way to a better marriage by a very crazy dude named Mark Gungor.

If you ever get a chance to watch his entire series or to see him in person, I highly recommend it. And you know if it comes with my stamp of approval, it's got to be good. <wink, wink>

I learned so much about myself and Chris. Anyway, I've attached a video below because I just can't do this teaching justice...if you have 5 minutes, it's funnier to watch Gungor do it. Pay close attention to the "Nothing Box" explanation (toward the end). It taught me a lot about my husband and my six year old son.
