Topics

All Stressed up and No Place to Go
This seminar topic addresses the challenges that marriages face in our hurry-up world. Rick and Kathy offer strategies for both preventing and overcoming the stress that threatens marriages today.

Spiritual Intimacy
While it's true that the couple who prays together is more likely to stay together, couples will learn about that and other facets of spiritual intimacy as well that increase bonding in marriage

Surviving the Storms of Life
Storms, in the form of conflict, are inevitable aspects of married life. This seminar addresses expectations, conflict resolution, and "fighting a good fight."

Building Your Mate's Self-Esteem
As Christians, we are called to build one another up; the intimate relationship of marriage can be the most fruitful ground for doing so. Likewise, it can be destructive. This seminar addresses valuing your spouse and recognizing "red flags" that let you know if spouse de-valuing is occurring.
