Main Navigation

Friday, February 8th - Sunday, February 10th

Location: Inn On The River in beautiful and scenic Glen Rose, Texas 
205 S.W. Barnard Street Glen Rose, TX 76043 (83 miles southwest of Dallas)

Registration Fee: $350 per couple (This fee includes all Saturday meals, Sunday breakfast, two nights lodging, and all study materials. It does not include transportation to Glen Rose.) Registration is very limited! Pay online below.

This is an invitation for couples to give the gift of love to each other… a time to get away together and spend a weekend in beautiful Glen Rose, Texas, and enrich the quality of your relationship. Enjoy the company of other couples and learn new ways of communicating and appreciating each other. 

All discussions and exercises will be voluntary and non-threatening, and most of your conversations will be between the two of you. Topics covered will be communications, intimacy, listening skills, handling conflict, and spirituality in marriage. This weekend will not be therapy, and is not designed for couples experiencing serious problems; rather it is an enhancement program to help make good marriages better.

The leader will be our own pastor, Dr. Blair Monie. Blair was trained in Marriage Enrichment through the Marriage Council of the University Pennsylvania Medical School and has led similar programs for churches and seminary groups.

Give the Gift of Time! After you register, you can print off a certificate to give as a Valentine's Day present!

Questions? Contact Diane Pennington at or 214-368-6348, ext 116.

Please Note: You can cancel your registration with a full refund until Friday January 25, 2013. After that date, you will only get a refund if we are able to register another couple from the waiting list to take your place.
