Better together marriage workshop July 27, 2024

Whether you are already engaged, are considering marriage, or are in the first year, this workshop will help ensure that you get off to a great start! The workshop will help each couple gain a deeper understand of their own unique dynamics, personalities, responses to stress, and strength/growth areas. And you'll meet other couples who are on the same journey!
 
Each couple will complete a 30-minute individual Prepare-Enrich relationship assessment a few days before the workshop. Prepare-Enrich is the #1 marriage preparation tool in the world, with a solid foundation in research, and more than 35 years clinical and pastoral use across the country. In session 1, each couple will receive their custom report, and we’ll walk through them as a group. Then we’ll discuss the key opportunities to strengthen your relationship.
 
  • Session 1: Your assessment & relationship strength/growth areas.
  • Session 2: Handling stress
  • Session 3: Communication & Conflict Resolution
  • Session 4: Round tables on specific growth areas, like Financial Management, Spiritual Beliefs, Romance/Sex/Affection
 
Discuss topics you may not have considered, or were afraid to bring up. Become more patient with each other. Love each other better. And live into a better version of yourselves.

Following the workshop, individual follow-up appointments may be arranged to continue the discussion.

The cost is $75 per couple, and childcare is available upon request.
