You Don’t Want to Miss This

Held at luxurious Grand Hotel on Mackinac Island, Michigan, the schedule ensures there’s plenty of connecting time for the two of you. The Laffoons’ Celebrate Your Marriage Conference is designed to be an incredible two day retreat just for you and your spouse.

Your hosts, Jay & Laura Laffoon

Using true stories, interviews, research, and years of experience, the Laffoons equip couples with the tools they need to nurture one another. Combining humor, music, and lots of honesty, the Jay & Laura’s “Celebrate Your Marriage” is designed for married couples of all ages. Meet Jay & Laura.

Special Guests: Gary & Lisa Heim, True North Ministries

Gary & Lisa authored True North which offers a unique, biblical paradigm that encourages readers to turn to God in the frustrations of life. Frustration often causes us to “go south.” We grumble and grasp. God calls us to “go north” and respond to hardship with wisdom and redemptive love. Combining biblical insight with personal stories, practical help, and compelling examples, True North will help readers turn from self-centered grumbling and grasping to Christ-centered gratitude and giving.

Gary is pastor of small groups and discipleship at Blythefield Hills Church in Rockford, Michigan where he has served for over twenty years. He is also a Limited Licensed Psychologist in the state of Michigan.

Lisa is a Licensed Professional Counselor in the state of Michigan where she has had a private practice for the last twenty-five years.

Gary and Lisa have been married for over 30 years and have two adult children. Together they speak, lead retreats, counsel and write to help people find their way through the struggles of life.
