FFI knows that a thriving marriage and family life takes effort! The Annual Conference on Marriage gives couples tools they can use in their daily life to grow stronger and happier. Every marriage has its joys and challenges. Marriages are strengthened when given support and encouragement from other married couples.

The theme this year, Joy to the World, emphasizes the positive and life-giving role of strong marriages in today’s society. Now is the time to restore your hope in God’s designs for you!
