You are personally invited to Celebrate Your Marriage – a couples experience at Grand Hotel on Mackinac Island! Married couples of all ages are invited to this one-of-a-kind event at this exclusive location October 8-9, 2023, where you will Celebrate Your Marriage!

God intended marriage to be a beautiful relationship between a man and a woman that is designed to last for a lifetime. Healthy marriages are solid foundations for families, loyal partnerships, and mirror the kind of covenant God has for His people.

Please join us!

SPECIAL GUESTS, Danny Ray and Kimberly Thompson 


Danny Ray, one of the world’s premiere illusionists, has amazed thousands of audiences. From churches and youth conferences to appearances on national television and at The Magic Castle in Hollywood, audiences everywhere are amazed by his sleight of hand. Yet, he is far more than entertainment—Danny Ray brings powerful and transforming messages of the gospel. Married more than twenty-seven years to wife Kimberly, he now strives to help others unlock the secrets for a magical marriage. They have published a book,”No, I Can’t Make Your Wife Disappear.” It is a lighthearted, practical, and sometimes hard-hitting guide to building a stronger relationship with your spouse. So don’t ask the magician to make your spouse vanish! Instead embrace his secrets for a magical marriage and enjoy a lifelong, loving, fun-filled relationship.

Kimberly is the wife of Danny Ray. They started a ministry over twenty years ago that has allowed Danny to travel the world sharing the gospel through his amazing magic. While Danny was on the road most weekends, Kimberly ran the business from home, often answering clients’ phone calls while crouched on the closet floor where she found a little bit of temporary quiet from their three young children. For her second career, she is loving working as an Associate Marriage & Family Therapist. Today, they are new to the “empty nesters’ club,” as their two sons have moved into their own spaces in Southern California and their youngest, a daughter, is away at college pursuing her Bachelor’s degree.
