A True Blessing: Before I do Workshop

Dear Online Diary,

H2B and I enjoyed the Before I Do workshop that we attended yesterday. It was such a nourishing experience for both of us for a number of reasons. The speakers, headed by Edric, were very vocal in saying that there’s no such thing as perfect marriage but it can be a happy marriage if the two people involved knows how it works.

{Before I Do workshop is a project of Imagine Nation Photography twice a year, April and November. }

The seminar was divided into five sessions – God’s Design for Marriage, Roles of Husband and Wife, Financial Stewardship, Conflict Resolution and The Five Languages of Love. I will be sharing the things that we’ve learned from these seminars soon.

In a nutshell, these are the things that are worth remembering:

Allow only God to be the third party on your marriage and form an equilateral triangle. Learn to leave and cleave. Know your roles in a marriage. Be sure that you know your spouse’ s primary language of love, resolve your conflict by surrendering your rights not to your spouse but to God and be a good financial steward.

It was truly a blessing for me and H2B. Thank you to John and Monique Ong, Dominic Barrios, and Ms. Onie of Imagine Nation Photography and all the organizers of the event. We would also like to extend our heart-felt gratitude to all the speakers – Mr. Edric Mendoza & wife, Joy (for God’s Design for Marriage), Mr. Manny Manansala & wife, Liza (Roles of the Husband and Wife), Mr. Ariel Atendido & wife, Karen (Conflict Resolution) & Hans Montenegro (Financial Stewardship). These people touched our lives and we thank them for sharing their time, knowledge and expertise with us.
