3 Nights of Marriage Strengthening in January with Linda and John Piippo

Linda and I invite you to join us in January for 3 Nights of Marriage Strengthening!

WHEN: January 17, 24, 31

6 - 8 PM

WHERE: Redeemer Fellowship Church
5305 Evergreen
Monroe, Michigan

Sign up in the church lobby or by calling our office at 734-731-1709.

We're working on hopefully providing babysitting. TBA.

We'll be using the "I Love You More" video + workbook curriculum by Drs. Les and Leslie Parrott.

Couples will need to purchase workbooks which accompany the videos: Here for men; here for women. ($8.99 apiece. If you cannot afford the workbooks please let me know.)

In I Love You More, a video-based study, Doctors Les and Leslie Parrott show you how the same forces that can chip away at a marriage can instead become the catalyst for new relational depth and richness--provided you make wise choices. Whether the problem is major or mild, you'll learn how to transform nettlesome issues into loving opportunities. 

We'll do 2 17-minute sessions per evening. The topics are:

1. I Love You More, Session 1 "Love Is Not Enough"
In Session 1, "Love Is Not Enough," you will discuss unrealistic expectations you brought into your marriage and discern how you can strengthen your marriage from conflicts.
