For guys, the words “marriage conference” can seem pretty scary. “Oh, boy! What did I do now?” is often our defensive response. Last weekend, my wife and I attended the “Love and Respect” conference at Christ the King church in Oxford. “Love and Respect” is the well-recognized mission of Emerson and Sarah Eggerichs. Along with many other couples, future couples and others wanting to learn, we viewed the DVDs of the seminars over two days. I was impressed and glad I attended. You see, “Love and Respect” explains to women — yes, better than we probably ever could — what makes guys tick, why we do the things we do. There is no pressure, guilt or anything in this series to make you uncomfortable. Lest you think this is slanted toward guys, have no fear. We also got a great understanding of how women are wired. You will learn things you do not know, I guarantee it. I highly recommend that you learn more, maybe read the book, find the series or consider hosting a conference at your church. I would also challenge non-Christian couples wanting a better marriage to give “Love and Respect” a chance. In fact, there is a conference coming up in Fowlerville on Feb. 24-25. Finally, thanks to the staff at Christ the King Church for being so hospitable, even during the worst snowstorm of the year.
