One major reason marriage can be difficult is because we haven't been taught how to do it right. Our couples retreat in Texas will show you how through a humorous, inspiring, and insightful program designed to take your marriage from surviving to thriving with God at the center. Sign-up today for the Texas Marriage Refresh!
"Wow, it was amazing. I believe you truly save so many marriages." (previous attendant)
1-Establishing A Covenant Foundation. The first step in having a successful marriage is approaching it from God's perspective. This session will show you how to establish a covenant based relationship and the difference it can make long-term in your marriage.
2-Owning Our Brokenness. We all bring shortcomings into our marriage and those weaknesses interact with our spouse's weaknesses and vicious cycles turn into tornadoes. This session will show you what your cycles are, where they come from, and how to change them.
3-Learning To Share Power. Many spouses haven't learned how to effectively share power and instead they force their way, which ends up eroding positive feelings quickly. This session will teach you how to respect differences and reach enthusiastic agreement on all decisions with your spouse.
4-Establishing Emotional Attachment. Ideally, we turn to our spouse as our main supporter and comforter. Unfortunately, many spouses feel the opposite and feel their spouse is more of a threat than a comfort. This session will teach you how to reverse this and start building safety and closeness back into your marriage.
5-Cultivating Sexual Fireworks. Part of a healthy marriage is a mutually satisfying sex life. Unfortunately, many marriages fall into the trap of the man pursuing sex, the woman withdrawing because she doesn't feel emotionally connected, then the man withdrawing because of the lack of sex. This session will show you specific steps to nurture both the emotional and sexual needs of husbands and wives so both can be happy.
6-Staying In Love. The ultimate goal in marriage is to feel in love. After all, that's why you got married in the first place. When we are in love it automatically shields our marriage from all sorts of problems and temptations. This session will show you specific steps to fall back in love and stay in love with your spouse.
