Celebration Church. It kicks off this morning with me teaching, "Thriving Through Incompatibility...being married to your OPPOSITE and doing more than just SURVIVING!!!"

It's going to be an exciting day! I believe it's going to bring change to people's lives and I can't wait to see what God does. If you live anywhere near Tampa and want to come, c'mon over and join us for the first two sessions (9:30 and 10:30 am). Reservations are required for the dinner and last two sessions. To see if there is still availability email Candy Rivera here.

(God's way!) At the same time, many married couples are no
