First Things First Offers "Celebrate Marriage" Seminar

Monday, February 04, 2013

First Things First offers an experience for couples at Celebrate Marriage on Saturday, March 9.  Dr. Pat Love, author of the best-selling book Hot Monogamy, will teach couples the art of creating a passion-filled marriage.

“When you marry, you think that intimacy will always be an important part of your relationship,” said Julie Baumgardner, president and CEO of First Things First.  “Then career opportunities arise.  Children come along and before you know it, your marriage relationship has taken a backseat to everything else.  In a funny, entertaining and inspiring way, Pat Love offers sound advice on developing healthy, fulfilling relationships that allow couples to connect on a deeper level.”

One participant had this to say about the last seminar: “Celebrate Marriage was awesome! Dr. Pat Love was so much fun, and her advice helped my husband and me put the spice back in our marriage.  I highly recommend it.”

This free event is for couples who are married or engaged, and offers the chance to laugh while you learn, and leave with a fresh outlook on marriage.  

Celebrate Marriage will be held at Brainerd Church (formerly Brainerd United Methodist Church) at 4315 Brainerd Road from 9 a.m.-5 p.m. with lunch and snacks provided. Registration begins at 8:30 a.m.  Participants must pre-register for the seminar online at firstthings.org.
