Marriage ‘Tune-up’ Workshop


You marriage dcan have a “Wondrous Marriage!” 


This is a workshop, seminar or small group curriculum that you can lead yourself in your church or home.


God’s precepts on building a great marriage and making marriage succeed even in times of stress and turmoil.

In this workshop, you will discover the real authenticity of our Lord, will enable us to build a real authenticity of love and respect, that will in turn build a “Wondrous Marriage!”

However, each one of you also must love his wife as he loves himself, and the wife must respect her husband.  Ephesians 5:33

Why this workshop?

Yes, there are many good ones to go to, Family Life, Gottman’s, even Marriage Encounter, and New Life charges $1,598 per couple, it is considered the best and it is, but this one is better. Why? It is based on 25 years of doing this, with ongoing research, and it is based on God’s timeless true Truth, not a psychological fad. Plus, we have practical, you can use now, information that will help you for many years to come. And you can do it in your church, do it cost effectively instead of outsourcing your ministry and people.

Typical format:

Follow any retreat Friday evening, Saturday through Sunday morning format, and feel free to divide up the material as needed and you can add more from our site and book too.

Open with prayer, a positive welcome in a nonjudgmental and confidential atmosphere. Use one of our open questions and or a get to know you question, also skits or role plays of couples arguing and miscommunicating are always good icebreakers, as well as clips from movies like ‘Couples Retreat’ or TV shows like ‘King of Queens.’ Make sure everyone has the book, “This Is Marriage” too. Make sure people feel welcome, in a non confrontational atmosphere.

This curriculum can be done personally in your marriage and in fellowship in small groups, you could also this in an interactive lecture or workshop setting. This endeavor will be in a seminar.  I suggest that you have people read the book first, “This is Marriage” and or go use the resouses on this blog, You can follow this syllabus, or you can just use the book.

If using the book, do one chapter at a time, and discuss the key points of need followed by the questions. You might go over one chapter for a day for a seminar or three chapters for a weekend retreat.  Any chapter(s) can be used; however, the main ones I suggest are, Chapter 3  Building a Wondrous Marriage, Chapter 6  Marriage where Real Love is Practiced, Chapter 7 Cherish and Respect, and you can have a seminar with a financial planner and do Chapter 18 Marriage Money Matters  with the Appendix III on Budgeting ideas, or a seminar with Chapter 19  Divorce Proof Your Marriage or, Chapter 20  The Marriage Tune-up!

The passages, main points, and some applications are given; you can read, be challenged, equipped, inspired and encouraged to make a wondrous marriage begin!  In addition, I will take you into a journey of what love is and what it is not. You will get an aspect of love and a session on what a biblical marriage looks like to work on at your own pace.

This book can be used as a personal guide for individuals and can be done individually; ideally, you would do this alongside your spouse or fiancé, small group, or with a qualified pastor or counselor.  This book can also be used for a community workshop or class.
