Weekend to Remember | VALENTINE’S DAY GIVEAWAY!

2018_2_7 - Valentine Giveaway_Weekend to Remember

When was the last time you were able to really get away with your spouse? To enjoy what you love doing together—whether it’s going for a hike, embarking on an adventurous road trip, reading a new book together, trying a new recipe, seeing a play, playing a board game, or just grabbing coffee?


It can be tough to find those moments. To-do lists and responsibilities often eat up most of our daily life, making intentional time with your spouse all the more precious!

We understand this struggle to balance daily demands with slowing down to enjoy your relationship. That’s why the HSLDA blog is hosting a Valentine’s Day giveaway: free passes to a Weekend to Remember getaway!

 FamilyLife’s Weekend to Remember offers a distraction-free chance to invest in your spouse through encouragement, hope, and practical tools to grow your relationship. Here’s what one attendee said about it: “After 19 years we realized we haven’t really taken time to get to know each other. This conference reinvented us and sparked a new life in our marriage.”

    What an awesome giveaway! Thank you! My husband I love quiet dates where we can focus on each other. We love to take walks on trails, sit at a quiet lake and fish or go camping together.

    One of our favorite dates is going out for dessert and coffee and looking up and answering “getting to know you” questions. It’s fun to find out what has changed after 15 years together!

    My husband and I like to go garage sale-ing together without the kids for a date.

    My husband is a natural leader and his charisma is what drew me to him initially. 🙂

    I was drawn to my husband by his compassion. He always had such a desire to help anyone he could. He still does!

    When we had young kids and couldn’t afford to hire a sitter and go out on a date, we would have a “date in.” After we put the kids to bed, we would have a picnic on a blanket on the living room floor. We would have special foods and drink and it was actually very romantic. More so than if we had gone to a restaurant or movie. More private and we saved money.

    Great giveaway! I was initially drawn to my husband’s tenderness towards me. He continues to be one of the kindest people I know.

    My husband’s immense, intentional love for his sons from a previous relationship, care for others and charming smile were what first drew me to my husband. We hardly get any time to ourselves so a weekend away would be a dream come true!

    I like the idea of going through the alphabet trying different restaurants that start with each letter of the alphabet on date nights. That kind of seems like a neat idea; to try new and unusual places, especially those x’s and z’s 😉

    A few months ago, my husband took me to a Swing Dance in a busy location where you had to change partners while taking a lesson. All things he doesn’t enjoy including the dancing, but he thought it would be important to me. It was. I was on cloud 9 for weeks and I was so grateful for his selflessness!

    What first drew me to my spouse was his outgoing personality and sense of humor.

    A mutual friend tried to set us up on a blind date. Instead we decided to talk on the phone to get to know each other first before me met. One thing that really drew me to him was his love for the Lord. We would read our favorite scripture passages to each other and share what we were learning and what God was teaching us. We talked for hours on the phone and would sometimes fall asleep.

    My husband and I will be celebrating our 1 year wedding anniversary next week. His honesty, loyalty, dedication, looks, and amazing personality is what drew me to him. I love him more with each passing day.

    The first thing that drew me to my husband, Chris, was his sense of humor. Over a decade later, and he still knows just what to say to make a room laugh out loud or lighten a mood.

    My husband and I love to go on hikes and pack a picnic together for our dates! We love being in nature and just hang out together.

    A weekend away for just the two of us would be so wonderful! I loved the way my husband was always doing things to show people he appreciated them and always stepping up to help.

    First thing that drew me to him was how nice he was. I remember thinking after our third date that WOW, he is unlike other guys. He has not once tried to make moves to get me into bed..
    I really think that hooked me!
