Marriage conference set for March 9-10

“Men Are Like Waffles, Women Are Like Spaghetti” is the theme of the third annual marriage conference sponsored by The Community @ Rockford First Assembly.

Authors Bill and Pam Farrel will speak about their book of that title, which hits the target on key differences between men and women that can impact a relationship.

As international speakers and relationship specialists, the Farrels are known for their humorous presentation style.

“We have simply discovered that people learn better when they laugh,” they said. “We try to create a fun conference where some serious help is offered in practical and interesting ways. Couples who come are often surprised by how much help they gain—and what a great time they have together!”

The Community @ Rockford First Assembly is at 5950 Spring Creek Rd. (northwest corner of Spring Creek and Mulford) in Rockford. Conference runs 7 to 9 p.m., Friday, March 9, and resumes 8:30 a.m.-noon, Saturday, March 10. Tickets are $50 per couple if purchased by March 4; $60 thereafter. To order tickets in advance, go to or call 815-877-8000.
