Current Seminar Series
A DAY TO BECOME “A BETTER US”
Discovering Marriage as God Intended
This seminar series includes four sessions and can be held on a Saturday from 9:00 am to 3:30 pm or spread out over a weekend retreat. The sessions include lots of helpful powerpoint slides, several illustrative videos, "Just the Two of You" times for couples, and note-taking handouts.
Session 1: HIS & HERS: Our Different Needs & Natures In this session we look at the 4 Deepest Needs we all share… needs that cannot be met by a spouse but only by God. Then we consider the Top 3 Needs of a Husband and the Top 3 Needs of a Wife, and how each spouse can lovingly respond to those needs.
Session 2: QUICK TO LISTEN: Communicating Heart to Heart It has been said that being heard is so close to being loved that for the average person, they are almost indistinguishable. In this session we consider three levels of communication and provide practical tips on the art of listening...not just to your spouses words, but the emotions and meaning behind the words.
Session 3: SHALOM IN THE HOME: Dealing with Conflict How can two different "notes" on two different "wave lengths" make beautiful music together? Harmony is possible, as opposed to discord, if we consider a new perspective on conflict and how to be a safe place for your spouse to bring up any issue at any time.
Session 4: KNOW YOUR ENEMY…and it’s NOT Your Spouse! Every marriage is under attack. In this session we look at the subtle and not-so-subtle ways a spiritual battle is raging in your home, identify some of the “wedges” the enemy drives between a husband and a wife to create distance, and give practical tools to stay strong in the face of these attacks. Your marriage is worth fighting for!
