300 marriages

You should be bummed if you missed our Date-Your-Mate Event this past Saturday. You might be sick of hearing about it from previous posts, but we had New York Times Best Selling Author, Dr. Gary Chapman in the house for an all-day conference called “Get the Marriage You’ve Always Wanted”. Close to 600 people (roughly 300 marriages) attended the event, most of them from the Jackson area, but several traveled from surrounding states, even some from Canada, to hear Chapman speak.

 Since the event, we’ve received Facebook messages, e-mails, and phone calls about how informative, relatable, and fun Dr. Chapman’s talk was on Saturday. I over-heard couples say they hadn’t laughed this much in a long time. A first-time attendee said to me, “One of the best things about this event is that we can walk away knowing that there are other couples out there just like us, who are investing in growing their marriage.” That was music to my ears. That’s what we’re here for. Dr. Chapman made a really great comment that I wrote down, he said, “This one-day marriage seminar is not going to fix your marriage. But it is going to give you hope, and maybe set you back on the right track.”

 Thanks to everyone who attended the event. MMJ is so grateful for the community support. Don’t miss our K.I.S.S. Keep it Sweet & Simple Valentine’s Date-Your-Mate event in Feburary!
