Remember why you fell in love
When was the last time you dreamt together? At the beginning of new relationships, many couples share dreams and goals, but as years go by, it is easy to fall into routine and forget what those dreams are. With their light, comedic style, Chris and Linda Padgett will share practical advice on how to start dreaming together again and how to make those dreams a reality.
We our excited to announce that the 2022 IMET Marriage Enrichment event will be an in-person event. We are proud to announce our speakers Chris and Linda Padgett.
