Marriage: Renew and Strengthen

A Weekend to Remember | Banff – April 30 to May 2

A couples retreat with the sole purpose of focusing on each other…leaving the everyday distractions behind…to laugh together…work through your differences…rekindle your romance…and have a blast?

This is a first for me – singing at (or attending for that matter) a marriage conference. I must say I have tended to avoid these things like the plague. The idea of being forced into some public vulnerability that is someone else’s bad idea of a good idea is not a position I like to find myself in. But when I objected to my friend Greg Leith, (keynote speaker at the conference) Greg just laughed and assured me that everything I was afraid this would be,  it wouldn’t be.  Before I accepted the invitation I made him pinky-swear!!

Greg Leith and his wife Shelley are friends of mine from Southern California.  They speak at these conferences all the time and if the conferences are anything like they are, it’ll be great. In fact, I just heard Shelly give an address last week (in a totally different scenario) in Huntington Beach, CA. She was excellent! Great teacher, great content; she is a remarkably honest and believable presenter.

So, I’m looking forward to this weekend in Banff that promises us a fun, relaxed and meaningful weekend away to strengthen and renew our marriages (aside: ironically,  it doesn’t appear as my own wife will be able to make it – so I’ll be there as a lonely presenter.)  I’ll be singing regularly throughout the weekend, sharing stories from my own experience and giving a full concert on the Saturday night. That ought to be worth at least 15 bucks right there!

The organizers  (Family Life) have made it advantageous for those who can organize several couples to come – but even if you can’t take advantage of the group offer – the price for single couples is more than reasonable.

  1. My husband Milton and I are speaking at the Alumni sessions. If you have attended a Weekend to Remember before, here is something new for you. Friday night and Sat. morning we’ll take you through a Personal Style Assessment. Understand why you and your spouse repsond the way you do and learn how to make your differences work for you. It’s FUN!

  2. Thanks for the info about the marriage retreat. My husband and I have bee wanting something like this and going to Banff and hearing that Steve Bell will be there…well enough said! Too bad that we won’t get to meet your wife. Also thanks for the lovely Easter music.
    God Bless

  3. Steve,
    Greg and I are SO EXCITED about doing this event with you. Our speaking will COME ALIVE once you wrap up with one of your amazing songs that just draws out some amazing truth that captures what we were attempting to convey. I’m sure all four of us speakers (Greg and I and Walt & Anne Moodie, from Toronto) will just sound so much more profound when we join up with your musical Holy Spirit delivery system! See you next month, my friend!
