Thanks for another inspiring marriage conference. On the way home, we commented that we go to our tax accountant, financial planner and doctor for yearly check-ups and it is just as important to go to a yearly marriage check-up!  Then I had this little panicky feeling . . . what if Jay and Laura quit doing this every year?!  Then I said to myself . . . never mind worrying . . . you are all signed up for next year! Another reason we enjoy the conference is the humor… it is so good for our health and well-being to just laugh and to laugh about these differences in men and women that could cause friction! Thanks again, and we look forward to coming again next year.

Louise

Thank you for hosting the Celebrate Your Marriage Conference. My wife and I enjoyed our anniversary with you at the Grand Hotel. We had a great time. This was the first time for us at Grand Hotel as well as at Celebrate Your Marriage. What an excellent venue you have for this retreat! I can’t think of a better place to spend a weekend with my wife. Everything is top notch and we were well taken care of.
