Almost to the day! 30 years after Carol graduated from Oakland University, Stephen graduates from O.U. with honors. Stephen all six of us are so proud of you! Especially grateful for your walk with Jesus. Get a few weeks of rest before you leave for Camp Lurecrest. You have worked so hard and you deserve it son. ... See MoreSee Less
Just got home from a Family Life Marriage Conference with two incredibly authentic and inspiring speakers, Jeff and Debbie Shreve! It was great to be back in Des Moines after almost nine years and what a great surprise to see so many familiar faces! My special thanks for a great weekend goes out to Walter, Mike, Don, Sarah, Brian, Julie, Joel and Heather and to everyone who came out to invest in their marriage and grow closer to their creator. ...

Jenna HillThank you for giving my husband and I the tools this weekend to really live together. We had the absolute BEST weekend and have already shared our experience with at least 5 or 6 couples. We plan on going again next year and bringing as many couples as we can with us! I'm so excited to move forward and see how this conference will change our marriage and our lives!
Chris BarrThank you Brett, Jeff, and Debbie. You left the heart of Des Moines in better shape than you found us. I stand and applaud the way that you have transparently shared your path aligned with God to light, mend, and preserve the journey of marriages. I am thankful for the adjustments, equipping and the challenge that God has instilled in me through you to do a much better job in loving my wife and fathering my children. The best is yet to come, stay the course and keep going to the front lines to battle for Marriage. Love from Des Moines...
John ArmstrongMy wife and I first went to a conference 31 years ago. We went to a couple of others back in the 90's and haven't been to any others until this weekend. After 38 years of marriage and raising 5 kids, we realize how blessed we have been over these years. But a much different result would have occurred if we hadn't had the input from these weekend's to remember. Thanks for the tune-up you gave us this weekend in Des Moines. We love your testimony. I am now a retired volunteer youth pastor of 25 years and I am passing the CD to the youth leaders I have kept in touch with where we live in Lawrence Kansas. Thanks again!
Kelly HalversonThis weekend was so rejuvenating. Such fantastic speakers. Brett you made us laugh over and over and made a lasting impression on us. Thank you for helping to equip us in our marriage. God bless you all in this ministry and through your stories.
Jessica CecakThis weekend was our first WTR conference, but it won't be the last! We came back home exhausted, but renewed and fired up about our marriage, relationship with our kids, and our faith! You three were so REAL with us and such inspiring speakers! Thanks for a great weekend!! God Bless
Wayne DurhamWished I had been a few miles over from Dayton and we could have connected! What a blessing to have you and Carol staying engaged with and speaking for FamiyLife as well as your other speaking and teaching opportunities that you have. Blessings to and the family....and In Christ...keep charging forward, again and again as you are my friend.
Our precious Nurse Jen from Camp Lurecrest passed from this life to her eternal home in Heaven today (Wednesday) after battling cancer for 15 years. In the 25 years Carol and I have known Jennifer, we have seen an amazing portrait in her life, marriage and parenting of what a selfless woman of God looks like. “Well done good and faithful servant” were the words she heard upon her arrival today by our Lord Jesus Christ! Please join me friends in praying for her husband Bryan Sherrel and her son Nathan as they grieve the loss of wife, mom and best friend. ... See MoreSee Less
I just returned from Minneapolis Minnesota where I was speaking again this weekend at a Family Life Marriage Conference. There are 60 amazing couples Carol and I work with on the Family Life speaker team, and everyone who works with Ed and Amy Uszynski agree that they are the best of the best! Thank you Ed and Amy for having my back in the Twin Cities and thank you to everyone who set aside that time to invest in your marriage and relationship with our Creator. ... See MoreSee Less

Colleen Lorraine AndersonThis was our first weekend to remember and we both left with such a different attitude towards our marriage!
It was refreshing to see that we aren't the only ones who struggle in marriage & life but with God we can make it through anything.
We bought your CD and plan on sharing it with youth at our church!
Thank you so much for sharing your story & beautiful family with us!

Had the absolute privilege of speaking with one of my favorite authors, Gary Stanley, this weekend. Gary and his wife Luci are incredible communicators and we spoke together at a Family Life Marriage Conference in Akron, Ohio. What a great weekend of laughter, tears and healing. Thank you to everyone who set aside that time to invest in your marriage and relationship with our Creator. ... See MoreSee Less
Glory BeJust want to say Thank you for this weekend! Hubby and i came away truly blessed by the words spoken this past weekend! WTR has become a yearly tradition for us as our anniversary gift to each other! We both said that this year was by far the best we have experienced!! 31 years and counting!!

Jim RingThis was our fifth weekend. We have heard you three times and it never gets old. I told Debbie "It is like the bible, even if you heard it before you still glean something new every time." Thanks for pushing through the pain and doing what God has called you to do. Love you bro!
Becky HowellBrett I just wanted to encourage you we are praying for your strength and a great weekend to come-we were truly amazed and blessed by sharing this past WTR with you. May GOD bless you and marriages!
Anthony RamirezBrett you're awesome!!!. Thank you for this weekend. You and Gary really spoke life into my marriage. I'm young and tend to be a little stubborn in my ways , before going to this conference I really didn't know where my life or marriage was heading. Just thought I'd let you know you guys set me on a different path. A path of victory!. I thank God for putting such great people like you and Gary in my path . I really look forward to following you in your journey . God bless . Until we meet again.
