Join marriage and relationship experts Jay & Laura Laffoon on a week-long cruise that will impact your marriage for years to come!

Leave cold weather behind for a week-long voyage in the Western Caribbean. Stop first at Great Stirrup Cay, our 250-acre paradise in the Bahamas. Go snorkeling, parasailing or kayaking, or relax in a private beachfront cabana. Visit Grand Cayman’s famous Stingray City Sandbar to interact with and feed dozens of Southern Stingrays in the wild. Then head to Cozumel on the coast of Mexico’s beautiful Yucatán Peninsula. The day is yours to dive fabulous reefs, explore the jungle in an ATV, relax poolside at a beach club, or visit an ancient Mayan temple. Whatever you choose, there’s no wrong way to relax and let loose on this vacation.

Guest Speakers: Dr. David and Terri Sumlin

The Sumlins are co-founders of Marriage Life Ministries and authors of the Marriage Innovators Workshop®, Intimacy of Marriage®, and Oneness of Marriage® series designed to help couples enrich their marriages through the application of biblical principles and adventure-based learning. They both have served over the last 15 years as international marriage educators, retreat leaders, pastoral counselors, and conference speakers.

David and Terri’s unique approach to marital enrichment is built upon some of the advances found in neuroscience, psychology, physiology, and adventure-based therapy, which were then tested through the lens of God’s word for validation. The result is an Adventure-Based Marital Enrichment model that helps couples derive positive behavioral transformation and increased levels of sustained learning.

David is a graduate of Dallas Theological Seminary for which he earned his M.A. and Doctorate in Marriage and Family Ministry. David pastored a church in Houston, Texas before founding Marriage Life Ministries. Terri is a graduate of the University of North Texas and served a 23-year teaching career before joining David as a full-time marriage educator. David and Terri will celebrate 29 years of marriage this year, have two adult children, and currently reside in Houston, Texas.
