Reconnect Date Night
March 7, 2020 at The Post Commons, Alton IL
35 couples from around the region joined us at the beautiful Post Commons cafe for a date night featuring two talks by Mike and Alicia Hernon, the dynamic married duo from the Messy Family Podcast. We created a lovely, romantic feeling with tables for two and a catered dinner. Mike and Alicia's talks were enjoyable, funny, inspiring, and full of wisdom we could all apply. Between their talks, couples had a chance to discuss one-on-one over dinner, or they could socialize with friends in the main cafe. Truly a delightful and inspiring evening!
Reconnect Date Night came during Lent, a perfect time to do spring cleaning in the soul and in our relationships. My husband and I enjoyed this night as it gave us the opportunity to look at our relationship and the ways that we are being challenged to grow outside ourselves to form a stronger marital bond. Mike and Alicia Hernon were great presenters of keeping one's marital relationship alive as well as one's family relationships growing.
A flourishing marital relationship is one whose goal/purpose is: unity, spousal priority, importance of marital relations, God's involvement, and recognition of good times and bad. Reconnect Date Night also allowed my husband and I to experience solidarity with like-minded couples desiring a strong marriage and family life. This night was indeed a gift!
