Whether you are newly married or married for years, couples can improve their relationship through understanding and helping each other. “After You Say, ‘I Do’: A Marriage Retreat” takes couples on an exciting and illuminating journey into the heart of their marriage.
The course is targeting married couples who want to use this unique environment to be able to have tough conversations, rebuild a foundation, experience personal and spiritual growth, and strength in their relationship. We will use the discussion board so couples can interact and see differing perspectives with other couples. We will use the journal to daily capture new thoughts and expressions. Specific chapters in the book will be worked through daily as a couple. We will also use Zoom to engage in group activities and also have speakers on the specific topics that we will cover. We will talk about goal-setting for your marriage, communication and conflict resolution, and spiritual growth as a couple.
Learners will be required to obtain a copy of the following book:
- After You Say “I Do”: Making the Most of Your Marriage by H. Norman Wright, Wes Roberts, Judy Roberts
Required Zoom meetings will take place from 7:00-8:00 pm CST every day. Each member of the couple needs to register for the course.
