Pre-recorded breakout session workshops


Don and Amy Givler, MDs

Don Givler, MD, Associate Professor of Family Medicine, Ochsner/LSU Health, and Amy Givler, MD, Assistant Clinical Professor of Family Medicine, Ochsner/LSU Health

Don and Amy Givler have practiced family medicine in Monroe, Louisiana, for over 30 years. They have been married since 1982 and have raised three children -- both of which are a testament to God's goodness and grace.


Session description:

It's no secret that marriages, even Christian marriages, face challenges. Additional challenges come when one or both spouses are physicians, and marriages with a physician wife have their own unique challenges. This workshop will look at many of these issues and will offer biblical and practical suggestions both for those whose marriages are good and those which are struggling.
