Chad & Kathy Robichaux at Lakeshore
Lakeshore welcomes special guest speakers Chad & Kathy Robichaux on Father's Day Weekend.
"I would never walk into a competition thinking I was going to fail, but I spent the first fifteen years of my marriage never really confident that we were going to win."
Chad and Kathy will be hosting a Restore Marriage Workshop on Saturday June 16 from 9am – 12:30pm. Join Chad & Kathy as they discuss the challenges they faced in their marriage and provide tools to help couples draw closer to God and allow Him to restore their marriage. The morning will include a main session with both Chad and Kathy, followed by a breakout session for men with Chad and for women with Kathy.
The cost for the seminar is $10 for individuals and $18 for couples.
Sunday Services with Chad & Kathy
Chad and Kathy will both be sharing their story of how their marriage was transformed from near-divorce to a strong and growing marriage and how the same principles that worked for them can work for any couple willing to fight for their marriage and rely on God’s help. They will also talk about their individual growth and development that has led to each of them being the person that their spouse would love to love. This will be followed by an interview with questions from people in the church.
This is a can’t-miss event for married couples in all stages of life, for single adults, and for anyone fascinated by the process of overcoming marital failure, PTSD, and the lure to find success at the expense of relationships. The Robichaux's story is powerful proof that it can happen.
