A Growing Marriage & The Five Love Languages
Gary Chapman, PhD - $50 spouse discount

Attend the Gary Chapman A Growing Marriage Seminar to learn from and emulate the master.  This is the seminar Dr Chapman presents to communities and congregations around the world.

You will leave equipped to teach the Growing Marriage seminar or his classic The Five Languages of Love - both are easy-to-teach DVD-based programs that deliver his practical advice to help couples break unhealthy patterns and choose to develop a God-honoring, happy marriage. Both programs include topics like communication differences, dealing with criticism, understanding your own and your partner's love languages, and making sex mutually fulfilling. 

 
Who Should Attend:
Counselors, therapists, clergy, chaplains, family life educators.  However,
you do not need to be a degreed or licensed professional to teach the course. In fact, Dr Chapman will spend time on how lay leaders/lay educators can use these seminars to create thriving marrige and family ministries in their churches.

Even if you have no intention of becoming an instructor, attend to strengthen your own marrige or relationship – to create the relationship of your dreams.  Couples at any stage from engaged to long-married are warmly welcomed to attend – as are singles or those who are single-again– learn what to look for in a strong marriage and how to keep a marriage growing. Couples and singles will have a highly enjoyable time while learning – Dr. Chapman is known for delivering Biblical advice with a healthy dose of laughter.

Although the day will be Christian focused, non-Christians are welcomed to attend. The Five Love Languages book has been adapted for Jewish and other faith-traditions.
