Utah State University Extension co-sponsors the Utah Marriage Celebration held online Friday, Feb. 9, from 4 p.m. to 9:30 p.m.
Designed as a date night for those who want to prepare for or strengthen their marriage, the celebration features workshops presented by professionals from across the nation. Workshops include topics such as intimacy, communication and staying connected.
The conference begins at 6 p.m. and includes two live workshop sessions. Bonus pre-recorded workshop sessions, including topics on taking your relationship from good to great, communication strategies and others, are available starting at 4 p.m.
Keynote comedian Larry Weaver is an internationally touring motivational speaker and comedian. Weaver delivers clean humor with a positive message worldwide through stand-up comedy, public speaking and digital media. He has shared the stage with entertainment legends, such as Faith Hill, Chris Rock, and “Weird Al” Yankovic, to name a few, and his humor has been featured on countless television, radio, and digital platforms, including Comedy Central, Dry Bar Comedy, and SiriusXM.
“We are excited about this event,” said Naomi Brower, USU Extension professor in Weber County. “We have a fantastic lineup of speakers from across the nation, and we are confident the couples that attend will come away with information and skills to enhance their relationship. Given the challenges of the past couple of years, this information is more important than ever.”
