September 19th, 2015 “Who should I Marry”
One of the most important decisions we will make in our lives is who we will share it with. With about half of all marriages ending in divorce it makes sense to be taking this step cautiously ensuring we are making a wise choice and ensuring that we are also someone else’s wise choice. Whether you are considering marriage or you have been married for 50 years there will be something valuable for everybody
November 21st, 2015 Relationship Hijackers
Marriage is an continuous active pursuit, not a passive game to be taken lightly. Join us as we encourage each other to be vigilant and ensure our marriages are not quietly being taken over by ideas and beliefs that rob us from the joy of our most important human relationship. Guest speaker Jessica Taylor.
January 17, 2016 The Impact of Pornography
The prevalence of pornography in our culture is rampant. It is becoming so pervasive that it may even be thought as acceptable and not worth dealing with. Not true. Pornography destroys marriages. Destroyed marriages impacts children. Therefore we must deal with this issue head on. Join us as we welcome Ruth Hayes-Barba from who will lead us in our conversation around this very sensitive topic.
March 19th, 2016–The Power of Shame
It touches now more than ever through the normal media and now with even more impact through social media. Shame turns a confident, brave World-Changer into a cowering, self-doubting person content on hiding on the sidelines of life. Our families need men and women of strong character and a clear understanding of their value regardless of the messages they receive from both inside and outside of themselves. Shame can be overcome but we must be willing to have an honest conversation about it’s effects and how to overcome them.
May 21st, 2016– Invitation to Relational Bravery
There is no growth when iron is not in contact with other iron. There is a level of bravery we must aspire to in order to be willing to engage in difficult conversations in order that both the giver and receiver experience genuine growth. We will point out potential road blocks and engage in exercises meant to sharpen our conversation skills all in an attempt to bring greater strength and loyalty in all the relationships we find ourselves in on a daily basis.
