My guest tonight is Sheila Weber. We will talk about National Marriage Week (Feb 7-14, each year)and what you can do in your community and to improve your marriage. Sheila will also share some interesting facts about the state of marriage in the USA. National Marriage Week “is a collaborative effort to encourage many diverse groups to strengthen individual marriages, reduce the divorce rate, and build a stronger marriage culture, which in turn helps curtail poverty and benefits children. Please join with others to host special events, launch a marriage class or home group, or place local advertising or news stories.In 2009, a group led by Chuck Stetson and Sheila Weber of the Let's Strengthen Marriage Campaign, working with dozens of organizations in the U.S. and many leaders in the marriage movement, have developed the National Marriage Week USA site to bring together the many activities that organizations and churches are already doing to strengthen marriage. We recognize in particular that social science is clear that children are best served when they grow up with both a mother and father. It is critical to strengthen the bonds of marriage to best support children so that they can thrive and flourish.” www.nationalmarriageweekusa.org With 20 years experience as a public relations,media relations,and communications executive,Sheila Weber has been a spokesperson on more than 500 national radio and TV programs and placed hundreds of major national stories (The New York Times, AP, Washington Post, LA Times), including a best-selling TIME magazine cover story “Why We Should Teach the Bible in Public Schools.” (April 2, 2006).
