Couples Attend Love & Respect Marriage Conference

Couples attend Love & Respect Marriage Conference at Walnut Creek Downtown on October 10 & 11.
One way Walnut Creek Church supports strong, Christ-like marriages and families is by hosting a couple’s conference every year. This year, the conference hosted 115 couples for a Love & Respect video conference on October 10 and 11.

Based on the groundbreaking principles taught in Dr. Emerson Eggerichs’ best-selling book Love & Respect, the conference taught couples how to achieve a brand-new level of intimacy as they learn to stop the crazy cycle of conflict, initiate the energizing cycle of change, and enjoy the rewarded cycle of new passion.

“My car needs a tune-up every once in a while. So does my marriage,” said Russ Cross of Walnut Creek South, who has been married to his wife JoDee for 32 years.

“It’s good to refresh,” JoDee added. “The Love & Respect conference is wonderful; very enlightening.”

Jeremy and Ashlyn Oberg of Walnut Creek Downtown have been married for three and a half years. They agreed that it’s important to set aside time to focus on their marriage, especially with having two young children and a hectic lifestyle.

“It’s good to listen to someone walk through examples and experiences who is well rooted in scripture,” Jeremy said. “What he’s writing about isn’t some secular author’s or psychology’s new fad. It’s God – the author of life and marriage – what he’s said the whole time.”
