A strong marriage is the foundation and cornerstone of a strong family. Couples constantly need to maintain their spousal relationship so that the marriage stays strong and vibrant. This two day intensive will assist couples by renewing their vision, learning new skills, and creating an environment of faith, hope and love in their marriage and for their family. This intensive retreat is marriage education in a group setting, NOT marriage therapy.
