Program details

The Marriage Enrichment Experience is designed for couples who are seeking to make their strong marriage even stronger with proven principles and practical tools based on the Hope Restored program.

During your conference or retreat, two facilitators will walk you through discussions and exercises that reveal the hidden barriers that keep marriages from thriving. You’ll not only understand what a healthy marriage looks like, but you’ll also learn about the fear cycle, how to avoid it, the value of caring for yourself, and how to communicate with your spouse on a deeper level.

By the end of your time together, you will have learned valuable relationship skills that you can easily apply to your everyday lives in order to create a stronger, healthier marriage.

Session 3
Session 3
Understanding Relationship Dynamics: Fear Cycle
Session 3

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.

Session 4
Session 4
Growing Personal Healthy & Integrity: Caring for Self
Session 4

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.

Session 5
Session 5
Growing Closeness through Communication: Connecting Heart-to-Heart
Session 5

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.

Session 6
Session 6
Growing Relationship Unity: Teamwork
Session 6

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.
