Get Your Marriage in Focus

Dating, Engaged, Newlywed, Married A LONG time, or Remarried, this is for you!

Join us for this 1.5-day seminar to Get Your Marriage in Focus!

You will have a clear picture of what areas your marriage needs to focus on; Communication, Conflict, Finances, Parenting, or Sex, we will cover all of these areas…and more!

We will share proven skills on how to get more satisfaction in your special focus areas. You will have uninterrupted time to talk, imagine that! No phones, or distractions. This seminar is all about connecting with your partner/spouse. 

Is your marriage/relationship in a good place? Great. Did you know the best time to invest in your relationship is when you are in a good season?

Is your marriage/relationship in a season of struggle and not connecting? Why stay stuck when you can learn maybe one new way to approach a subject that can change the direction of where you are going! It’s amazing how shifting one little thing in the way you communicate with each other can make all the difference!

What it is:
  • Personalized to your marriage
  • For marriages that need a little refreshing/vitality
  • Time to focus on each other
  • Learn how to develop (or keep) the vibrance in your relationship
  • Lots of laughter and “ah ha” moments

“Gil and Brenda are such a joy to work with! It is rare to have a couple willing to both handle the speaking for an event, yet also give so much time and energy into individual appointments and conversations with our guests. We consistently heard about their kindness and humility in helping couples work through issues in their marriage. They teach in a practical and highly applicable manner and made a great impression on our guests.”
