Joni Petro on 01/29/2011

is there childcare available?

Kate Fahs on 02/01/2011

There will not be any childcare available 

Deacon Melissa Dermody on 02/05/2011

I’d like to help out by babysitting (for free).  However, I’d like to help as many families as possible.  Unfortuately I live in a small apartment in Edmonds so if you need a babysitter and have the room to allow more kids we could work something out.  The most convenient would be a house in the ballard area.  Kids would need to bring their own snacks and lunch. Depending on size of house, I am comfortable watching up to 10 kids (all ages). 

FYI: I’ve been a teacher for 7 years and babysit for 2 families of 2 kids (5 and 8 year olds) on a regular basis.


Tami Hagglund on 02/08/2011

If our baby (due March 3) comes before this then we can’t come but otherwise we’ll be there!

Teresa Johnson on 02/08/2011

Nothing said about lunch… will there be a break where we could go out and get something or do we bring one with us? 

Lori Miller on 02/14/2011

Is this seminar for older couples?  we have been married 22 years. thank you

Elizabeth Mann on 02/15/2011

Is there going to be childcare. I can even help with that.  I would love to help.

Deacon Erin Berger on 02/15/2011

Teresa – there will be a lunch break.

Lori – the seminar is open to everyone! I’m sure there will be valuable information for couples in all stages.

Elizabeth – there will not be childcare at the event. 



Wendy Hubbard on 02/15/2011

Yes we are coming! Thanks,Rod and Wendy Hubbard

Date: Tue, 11 Jan 2011 12:05:41 -0800

Lori Miller on 02/16/2011

Is there an outline or a list of general topics that they will be covering?


Sarrah Rodriguez on 02/18/2011

Can people arrive late? I have to work until 9am and am down in Olympia, so wouldn’t get there until 10:30ish

on 02/19/2011

I am looking forward to this event. I have failed my first marriage and family. I pray that God will fill me with His wisdom so I can lovingly and wisely guide my teenagers. I pray to give them a taste of what a God Centered family feels lilke.

Pastor Mark Driscoll on 02/21/2011

In all honesty I can say this is one of the best marriages and wisest couples I’ve ever met. They are gold. 

Sandra Granados on 02/21/2011

No, we will not be able to attend this time.

Peter Silchukov on 02/23/2011
