Discovery Weekend with Jaycee ♥

Hello everyone. I've been seriously busy this weekend. Jaycee invited me in a seminar where he needs a partner so the good and kind girlfriend in me gave him the favor he needs. haha.. Much to my knowledge, it's me who has been done the favor. ^o^

I am completely clueless that the seminar was all about marriage preparation! Just a short background, J and I had been together for 4 years now. Marriage is actually something we both consider. Just in time that God planned this for us; to attend the Discovery Weekend. 

It was a two-day seminar with couple speakers that share their married life experiences. It was indeed a wonderful time listening to couple stories and how they nourished both of their life together. The topics have been helpful to Jaycee and me.

The mission of the  Discovery Weekend is for couples seriously considering marriage. They can be engaged to marry in a week's time or going steady for a short period but contemplating marriage. The weekend is not necessarily for perfectly matched couples nor is it designed to help unstable relationships. The program is intended to enrich and deepen the couple's relationship to better prepare them for marriage. So any couple may join the program, regardless of the status of their relationship-as long as marriage is in their minds.




We were welcomed by the admin couple Mrs. Pia Hontivero-Pagkalinawan with her husband and PNP Provincial Director R'win Pagkalinawan. They were both good-looking and lovely couple who let us felt that we're really welcome. They even seated on our table during mealtime for some couple talk. :)

We were also treated very well with several meals plus snacks for the two-day event. Did I say we got this all for free? :)









Pretty obvious that we are really treated special ayt?! :) Before the start of the program, we were also given kits for the entire duration of the event. Certificates were also given to the couple who completed the seminar.






Jaycee and I had a good time speaking our hearts out since we need to have a dialogue right after every  topic. It's a great feeling that you're partner can always share whatever is in his mind. If we could only make the seminar longer, it will make us grow even closer with each other.

This is the man I fell in love with and I wish to fall in love again and again! ♥

  13. I first heard of the Discovery Weekend from Allan and Maribel Dionisio of the Love Institute during the Family Congress 2012. They said that this seminar actually helped them prepare for their marriage better and now they have been together for at least two decades (if I remember it right). :)
