The refreshment you've been praying for...The connection you need....

Come away for a special time of renewal and engagement with your spouse among the gorgeous fall colors in Lexington, KY November 3-5, 2014 (Monday-Wednesday).

Life gets busy and the demands are high, so take 3 days to come and be refreshed through Biblical teaching, prayer time, and intentional interactions with the love of your life.

pricing has been kept to a minimum.
 
As a church, consider giving this to your pastor as a gift!

Past Events
-----------------------------------------------------------------

David Sellars with VowsToKeep  Ministries presented a breakout session about how to be a Godly Man in marriage at the  (MEN OF GOD 2014) conference.  This one day event also featured Author and Pastor Byron Yawn.  Byron has written a must read title 

"What Every Man Wishes His Father Had Told Him"  

Its amazing to see 300 Men all hungry for the Lord and eager to learn!

--------------------------------------------------

We want to thank the volunteers who have helped to make these past events possible!  
Marriage can be tough – merging two lives, beliefs and hopes can cause a lot of conflict.  With biblical teaching, outrageous fun and times of deep intimacy, couples will learn, laugh, cry, examine their hearts and experience the marriage that God intends. If you would like to make your marriage better join us for an upcoming MARRIAGE CONFERENCE.  These special events include expert teaching, engaging stories, real life testimonies, and humorous vignettes to help strengthen your relationship. No matter what shape your marriage is in, this honest look at the challenges every marriage faces will offer hope that your marriage can become a work of art. 

--------------------------------------------------

VowsToKeep  would like to thank and all who attended our Valentine’s Weekend 2014!!!

  In the Love and Respect conference we dug into "The Crazy Cycle",  "The Energizing Cycle", and the practical application of biblical wisdom found in Ephesians 5:33.  Then we discussed the "The Rewarded Cycle" - what you do when your spouse doesn't respond!

November 2013 VowsToKeep  would like to thank Pastor Eric Cook and Vineyard Christian Fellowship for hosting “What Did You Expect? Redeeming the Realities of Marriage”

Marriage, according to Scripture, will always involve two flawed people living with each other in a fallen world. The majority of couples enter marriage with unrealistic expectations, leaving them unprepared for the day-to-day realities of married life.  It won’t take long for you to realize that your marriage hasn’t escaped the reality of sin or the brokenness of the world. It’s what you do next that will make all the difference in the world in the character and quality of your marriage.

A marriage of unity, understanding and love is not rooted in romance but in worship. It is only when I worship God as Creator, Sovereign, and Savior that I will ever love as I should. Have you ever wondered why some couples reach a place of unity, love, and understanding in their marriages while other couples seem trapped in the same struggles year, after year, after year? The surrounding culture would lead us to believe
that a marriage of unity, love, and understanding is rooted in romance. Scripture would rather say that a good marriage is the result of worship. Learn how practical these insights are for the everyday issues and situations of a real marriage; and, learn the practical steps that will help couples know how to get from where they are, to where God wants them to be.
