​​​Each year we take time out of our busy schedules to celebrate marriages for an entire week. This time of celebration is recognised as 'National Marriage Week' across the US and here in the UK. It is not yet widely recognised across the world but through the efforts of Marriage Week International this is changing. We believe in the sanctity of marriage and so we have embraced the idea of learning and growing, adding value to our relationship and sharing tips on how we can maintain a healthy marriage. This week of celebration begins on the 7th day and ends on the 14th day of February each year.

We wanted to share this wonderful experience with others but to do that we needed the support of others who believed in the growth and maintenance of healthy marriages. Since 2006 we recognised the need for investing in our marriage and that led us to BeOfMe. From there we embarked on a full scale research project which found us sharing our findings with others. We began sharing here on W2S then we extended the sharing to couples in our community and the churches we are affiliated with. In our sharing, we find that it is the little suggestions that makes a big difference sometimes.

We are grateful to the church leaders who have embraced the idea and took time out to honour the couples in their churches and community. >>>More

Quiz & Re-affirmation of vows Night ~ 2014

@ Limbury Baptist Church

Many thanks to the Rev. David & Mrs. Beth Fleming of Limbury Baptist church, for embracing the idea and holding a couples night at our church in February 2014. Thank you to Beth for the lovely table decoration and the baking of cakes for the 'tea and cake' offering to our couples evening.

We pray that you'll find something to encourage, motivate and inspire you here. Please visit our blog space or like us on Facebook to get updates on Embracing Forgiveness. Please share with us also.

Thank you to all who attended this event and to those who brought in a wedding photograph or wedding album. It was very much appreciated. You saw the value in enriching the lives of others with your experience and we all left enlightened.

The evening included a 'table quiz', a 'wedding photo 'bring & share' which sparked many conversations and got couples in the church learning from each other as they learned about each other. 


Thank Yous
