I never thought camps at Crossroads sounded like a great idea and surely didn't think Couples Camp would be something I'd ever do. My husband and I were emailed an invitation to be leaders. We were having dinner at a bar and he asked me if I saw the email. I laughed and said, “Like that's ever going to happen.” We started talking and laughing about other things.
A man next to me struck up a conversation us about how great it was to see a married couple talking and having fun together like he heard us doing. He told us about being in the midst of a divorce, what that was like, and how his friend was going through the same thing. Then he left. God calls, I obey. I saw this conversation as a call from God that we were supposed to lead at Couples Camp. God knew I wouldn't go any other way. So, I immediately got on my phone and accepted the invitation to lead.
As camp drew closer, I was paralyzed with fear about going to a remote site with no facilities. And I mean paralyzed. My fear was all consuming. On top of that, my husband and I were growing apart—little by little, day by day. I began dreading going to camp.
But Couples Camp was the best thing that ever happened in our marriage. Here’s what came out of it:
Couples Camp was life altering.
