Thanks for your interest!

Since 1985 we have spoken at more than 250 FamilyLife marriage and parenting conferences across the country and have also spoken hundreds of times to audiences in church, retreat, conference, and stadium settings ranging in size from a few to more than 20,000.

Here are a few of the topics we often address:


Fight Fair: Winning at Conflict without Losing at Love

A four-session conference and workshop for couples, taken from our books Fight Fair! and One of Us Must Be Crazy and I’m Pretty Sure It’s You. This conference helps couples identify the essential differences that are the cause of most relational conflict, and guides couples in drafting their own personal set of rules for conducting a more positive and productive disagreement.
