Bob: Well, at this point, I feel like I need to point our listeners to our website,, where they can get information about some of the resources we have available. They can find out about when we are hosting Weekend to Remember marriage getaways in cities all across the country. And this fall, we’ll be in more than four dozen cities with our two-and-a-half day weekend getaway.

In fact, this week and next week, FamilyLife Today listeners have a special opportunity to sign up to attend a Weekend to Remember. If you sign up, this week or next week, and identify yourself as a listener to FamilyLife Today, you buy one registration at the regular price and your spouse comes free. It’s a buy one/get one free opportunity—a half-price Weekend to Remember marriage getaway. We have to hear from you by next Sunday.

So, now, is a good time to go online at Get more information about when the Weekend to Remember is coming to a city near where you live and make plans to be at one of these two-and-a-half day getaways for couples. It’s a fun, romantic weekend away. It’s not just for couples who are in some kind of marital distress or who are facing some kind of marital challenge, right now. A lot of couples—most couples—who attend a Weekend to Remember are attending to do preventative maintenance on their marriage. So, plan to join us at a Weekend to Remember.

If you want to take advantage of the special offer for FamilyLife Today listeners, call 1-800-FL-TODAY. Register over the phone. Just say, “I listen to FamilyLife Today” when you do that. Or go online at If you register online, put my name—put “BOB”—in the promotion code box that you see on the registration form. You’ll qualify for the special offer, and it’ll all get taken care of as you complete the registration process.

Again, the website:—the toll-free number: 1-800-FL-TODAY. And check out The Art of Marriage, as well. This is something you could attend if there is an Art of Marriage event happening this fall in your community. If there is not one happening in your community, you could host one these Friday night/Saturday events for couples. Whether you host it in your local church or somewhere else in your community—invite folks to come and join you—I think you’ll be encouraged by how God uses this event in the lives of the couples who attend. Find out more about The Art of Marriage when you go online at; or again, call if you have any questions at 1-800-FL-TODAY.

And with that, we’re going to wrap things up today. Thanks for being with us. Hope you have a great weekend, and I hope you and your family are able to worship together this weekend.

On Monday, we’re going to talk to a wife who confesses that she got to a point, in her marriage, where she was just sick of sex. We’ll hear how she addressed that issue and how she feels about it now. I hope you can tune in for that.

I want to thank our engineer today, Keith Lynch, with special help from Justin Adams, along with our entire broadcast production team. On behalf of our host, Dennis Rainey, I’m Bob Lepine. We will see you back Monday for another edition of FamilyLife Today.

FamilyLife Today is a production of FamilyLife of Little Rock, Arkansas. Help for today. Hope for tomorrow.

We are so happy to provide these transcripts to you. However, there is a cost to produce them for our website. If you’ve benefited from the broadcast transcripts, would you consider donating today to help defray the costs?
