The Ellis Event.png

Join the stars of the Webby award-winning podcast, Dead Ass, and social media show, The Ellises, for an evening of conversation about the core pillars of their relationship as millennial lovers.

 

In their book, WE OVER ME, Khadeen and Devale share the messy, behind-the-scenes work of what it takes to succeed and support one another in their search for individual purpose while growing in their marriage. The Ellises might not have all the answers, but they do know that good love takes friendship, grace, and service. 

 

The Ellises will be joined by special guests, as they share relatable truths that will inspire you to be the kind of partner you want to be and get everything you want from your relationship.

 

Tickets to this event include access to a moderated conversation with Khadeen and Devale and a copy of WE OVER ME.
