Join us for a fun event filled with humor, fresh insight, and new strategies for your relationship. Fight Night; How to Fight Fair is for everyone – newlyweds, “oldyweds,” seriously dating, engaged couples – anyone wanting to make a good relationship great. It is a videocast hosted by Drs. Les and Leslie Parrot.
This event will be on Saturday, February 18 at 6pm. You can sign up for $25 with the form below. Price will be $30 at the door. You can use the sign up form at the bottom of this page to sign up.
UPDATE: Here is a note Pastor Phil recently sent to our email list:
I hope everyone had a wonderful Valentine’s Day. I wanted to drop you quick note to remind you that we are just a few days away from Fight Night at Good Shepherd. It starts on Saturday at 6pm and is a great way to continue the Valentine’s celebration.
This event is for all couples. Relationships can be difficult. We fight and have disagreements. A healthy marriage is not one without conflict. The absence of conflict can actually be a sign of a problem. A healthy marriage is one that approaches conflict from a godly perspective.
Maybe your marriage is on the verge of collapse. Maybe your marriage is great. Or maybe your marriage is somewhere in between. I want you to know that this event will have something for you. It is all about wrestling with conflict and actually using conflict to grow closer together as husband and wife.
There are two sessions which are approximately one hour each. There will be a 20 minute break between the two sessions. So the total evening will last about 2.5 hours and end around 8:30pm. We will have some light refreshments available and encourage you to take your Valentine for dinner before or after the event. You may have lots to talk about after we are done.
I have had a couple people come to me that they were concerned they would have to share details about their marriage with others. Don’t worry. You will not need to stand up in front of anyone. You will not need to speak or answer any questions. The idea is to just come and listen. You can talk with your spouse about it later in private.
Another thing I have been asked about is if a person can come alone. Maybe one spouse is working or a spouse is reluctant to come. The ideal is for both spouses to come, but one is better than none. Even if your spouse is resistant you can come, learn, and grow. And maybe what you learn and apply to your marriage will rub off on your spouse and transform their heart.
The cost is $25 if you sign up online today. But if you wait till Saturday, the cost will be $30. If for some reason, you cannot afford the $25, let me know. We don’t want cost to something that prevents you from coming. But consider this to be an investment in your marriage. Behind your relationship with God, this is your most important relationship in your life. It is hard to put a price on that.
If at the end of the event you say that the money was not worth it, we will promise to give you a full refund. Our main reason for charging for the event is so that we can cover the licensing fees to bring this event to Good Shepherd.

Unfortunately, the couples that often need something like this the most are the most reluctant to come. I find that at a lot of marriage events that it is filled with people looking to make a great marriage even better. That makes sense because those that work on their marriages are likely to have a healthier marriage. They make marriage enrichment a priority in their life. Those that neglect to work on their marriage are going to find their marriage in a difficult place. Marriage is one of the toughest things we will ever do, but it can be one of the most rewarding. Pride keeps us from asking for help or even thinking that we need help. We all have room to grow and we can all use some help, wherever we might be in our marriage. I hope you and your spouse can make it.
