Austin Couples Offered Opportunity to Build Stronger Marriages Through Weekend to Remember
Discounts Available for Military Families
More than 1.5 million people in more than 90 locations have renewed and rediscovered the joy in their marriages with FamilyLife's Weekend to Remember. June 8 – 10, couples in Austin have the chance to experience a new sense of encouragement and hope, hear from compelling speakers, and learn practical tools to help build and grow their marriages.
For Austin residents Darren and Katrina Weems, Weekend to Remember is an invaluable experience. After 24 years in the Army, they have seen many of their fellow military friends and colleagues divorce. Seeking a different outcome for their family, the Weemses attended Weekend to Remember to strengthen their relationship.
"Last year, 21,290 members of the military divorced," said Katrina. "The troops who protect our country and the family members who love them are plagued by challenges to hold their families together. In Austin—so close to Fort Hood—the number of families who can be given hope through practical tools, encouraging and engaging talks from marriage experts, and private time with your spouse to apply the concepts cannot be underestimated."
Beginning Friday evening and concluding on Sunday afternoon, Weekend to Remember will take place at the Renaissance Austin Hotel. Attendees are encouraged to take advantage of the hotel setting and check-in for the weekend, maximizing their time away from distractions and daily life as they reconnect with one another.
