Everyone knows that if we neglect the regular maintenance of our vehicles, it will become costly for us. Likewise, with marriage. If we fail to give particular attention to keep growing in our relationship with our spouse, it will likely become costly as well.
“The Marriage Course” is designed to provide tools for a couple to help in developing or maintaining a healthy marriage that lasts a lifetime. Old and young are invited. It’s never too late to learn and improve.
With a minimal investment of 7 evenings, while being served a meal and listening to a DVD of
Nicky and Sila Lee (from London, England), combined with some private discussion with your significant other, your marriage can be strengthened or enhanced. Even a good marriage always has room for improvement.
Topics covered include: recognizing each other’s needs, learning to communicate effectively, resolving conflict, healing past hurt, knowing how to make each other feel loved, relating to parents and in-laws, good sex, making time for each other, and having fun together.
The course, while based on Christian principles, is very helpful for any couple with or without a Christian faith or church background.
In the past, this course has been presented in our community several times. About 50 couples have already participated. One older gentleman said he was embarrassed to come, thinking that he would be viewed as someone with a marriage in trouble, but he finished the course with an improved relationship with his wife. His wife told me this.
The Course is produced by “Alpha” and has been revised and updated. It will be held in the Old Bagel Boy Restaurant with meals prepared by Eva and Edith, who have significant restaurant experience. If you’re interested in attending, contact John or Donna Neufeld at 250-692-7949, or find a registration form at local churches or community bulletin boards.
The course is for couples only—married or those living together common-law. Take a risk. Try something new. Consider it an investment that will pay good dividends. You won’t regret it.
