A guided experience to
strengthen your marriage

Marriage Enrichment Conferences

Focus on the Family Canada is bringing the proven principles of the Hope Restored marriage intensive program to churches across the country with this Marriage Enrichment Conference. Sit back and learn from our speakers in a local church as you learn from our speakers how to improve communication with your spouse, work through conflict in a healthy way, and experience more intimacy in your marriage.

Marriage Enrichment Conferences take place Friday evening and Saturday afternoon, although the duration may vary between locations, with at least 100 couples to attend (depending on the size of the church).

Why should I go?

  • You’ll learn all of the principles of the Marriage Enrichment program without having to give up an entire weekend.
  • It’s a less expensive option than a retreat.
  • You can invite friends, neighbours and colleagues to attend with you.
  • This is the best option if you prefer learning in a seminar format rather than interactive group teaching.

Understanding Relationship Dynamics: Positive, Powerful, Promising Moments
Session 1

By looking back at the patterns of your positive, powerful and promising moments, you and your spouse can create a better understanding of what you need from one another.

In order to work toward a goal, you need to know what that goal is. With this healthy marriage model, you’ll better understand what your relationship should actually look like.

When our buttons are pushed, we react, which often causes our spouse’s buttons to be pushed and for them to then react. This is the Fear Cycle. But there is a way out of it.

The best thing you can do for your marriage is to invest in your own personal health, but everyone needs something different for their well-being. Becoming a student of yourself is the first step.

There are two styles of communication: work talk and heart talk. We’re all great at work talk, but very few of us know how to actually engage in heart talk, which is where intimacy in marriage thrives.

In order for you to seek unity, you need to feel safe and on the same team with your spouse. By changing your how you think about decision-making, you can change the outcome to a win-win every time.
