Why are so many of our marriages and families unhealthy? Why do we have such a high divorce rate? Why are our youth facing so many struggles? Why can’t we solve these problems?
The simple, unfortunate answer: we don’t understand marriage. This workshop aims to help husbands and wives understand their relationship as spouses and build a happy marriage so they can then raise healthy families.
