The Laffoons fearlessly share their own experiences as they unravel what they’ve learned about the mysteries of intimate relationships, believing that all married couples share the same struggles and joys along the journey!
Their humorous and entertaining transparency offers couples permission to laugh with each other and courage to continue growing a future together.
After meeting on a blind date in 1984, their brief courtship has since transformed into a daily marital celebration. Having ministered together with Youth for Christ for 15 years, along with interviewing thousands of couples, they’ve gained tremendous insight into marriage and family issues. Now they’ve been presenting comedy infused marriage events for more than 17 years!
