Marriage Retreat
Katherine and I just got back from a marriage retreat in Pigeon Forge, TN that our church sponsored. We had a great weekend and got to meet some new couples from our church. The teaching was very practical and more importantly biblical.

I will write about each session individually but I wanted to summarize the teachings here in this post. Most of the teaching came from Genesis 1-3. The general ideas was to show the couples how God intended life to be for His people. That life included intimacy with Him and intimacy with their mates. Sin enters the world and intimacy is destroyed. Christ comes, dies as the perfect sacrifice for sin, and the way to intimacy with the Father and with each other is made possible once again. At the end of the day the secret to a good marriage is the same as the secret to a good life......Love God and Love Others.

In a nutshell....the teaching on marriage consisted basically of the Gospel. So simple and so true.

I will break each session down individually in the days to come but you get the idea.

I married my beautiful bride Katherine back in May of 1998. Since then, we have been blessed with 4 wonderful kids (three girls and a boy). We have lived here in Rome since 1993 when Katherine and I met as freshmen at Berry College. I teach Math at one of the elementary schools here in town. Thanks for stopping by.
