    I’ve been to a Weekend to Remeber and they named it quite appropriately. You won’t forget it. It opened up a lot of doors for my husband and I in our marriage and walks with God. Definitely do it! Also we go to a lot of motocross events and my husband has even raced a bit. Tons of fun, your son will love it.

    I love your website. My children are older. My daughter is turning 20 tomorrow and my son is 18. I’m impressed. Lots of cool stuff to do before you turn 50. I need to get on my list cause it’s almost around the corner for me. If I did anything right in my life it was in raising my children believing in God. I saw my children want to be baptized and be baptized at church. One of many of the happiest days of my life. It gives me peace and great joy. Thanks for sharing. I’ll be back to read more.
