There are only a few times a year when I am required to shop: birthdays, anniversaries, and of course, Christmas. Too many times the gifts I buy for my loved ones are appreciated but leave very little lasting impact.

Christmas is right around the corner, and I know many of my friends are dreading this shopping experience, trying to find something truly meaningful. So you put aside the calendar and pretend the shopping doesn’t exist, until it’s Christmas Eve and you are forced out the door to find that perfect gift, along with 10,000 other procrastinators fighting for the few remaining items on the shelves.

Our team at HomeWord has come up with a great gift idea this year, that might just save you from this last minute shopping nightmare.

Why not consider registering you and your spouse for the “Refreshing Your Marriage” Conference at Azusa Pacific February 22-23rd? My wife Cathy and I, along with Jim and Cathy Burns, will present some practical ideas and tools to keep your marriage on the right track for years to come. Last year, our inaugural year, launched with other 300 couples saying, “We hope you do this every year!” So, we’re back for year 2 with new material and a great program.

To help make this gift something more than a “gift certificate” We have created something that symbolizes marriage and something to give your spouse on Christmas (in addition to registration). registration You can purchase at checkout either (a “Refreshing Your Marriage” pen or a keychain for only $5) that will be shipped to you in a gift box ready to wrap and place under the tree.

And if you register before Dec. 15th, you can take advantage of our Super Early Bird price of only $109 per couple.
