The Why Did I Get Married Conference happened last Saturday at the Hilton Garden Inn, Downtown Rochester. This conference was open to all married couples and soon-to-be married couples who want to ensure a happy, healthy, and successful marriage.
Event organizers, Cory and Tanishia Johnson have 17 years of marriage under their belts and know the difficulties married couples face when it comes to finances, raising children and communication. That's why they created L.O.V.E Marriage Ministries. It is their mission to help couples build and maintain their marriages.
“L.O.V.E Marriage Ministries' vision is to support and strengthen marriages and family. We want to support, uplift and celebrate marriages that are healthy, thriving and everlasting,” said Tanishia Johnson. “In today's world where divorce is at an all-time high and children are impacted tremendously through that process, we know and believe that support to couples is what it takes to help them sustain their families. If we want a healthy community and healthy children, we MUST start with supporting families and then witness the greater impact not only in our neighborhood communities but in our school communities as well,” said Cory Johnson.
Cory and Tanishia are the parents of 5 children and both are educators in Rochester. They believe the strength of every community begins with strengthening and empowering strong, healthy families.
The conference addressed the realities that married couples face and offered workshops on topics such as: "How to Fight Fair", "Forgiveness", "Intimacy", and "Money Matters."
