It’s time to invest in your marriage. Let’s be honest, marriage can be challenging. Figuring out how to live with another human being can sometimes feel like you’re sharing a closet. All of a sudden you’re around this person 24/7 and you have a front row seat to all their crazy. But you’re also privy to the good stuff. You get to be a part of all of their successes and failures and encourage each other along the way.
Then there’s the challenge of learning how to communicate. In two and a half years of marriage, Matt and I have had our fair share of communicating well and missing it completely. The way we communicate, resolve conflict, and even our love languages are different. We have to learn how to communicate effectively – and that takes time, making mistakes, and a whole lot of practice.
Next Sunday, my church, Sunshine Hills Foursquare Church, will be running The Marriage Course. This course is designed for couples who are seeking to strengthen their relationship. Whether you are looking to invest in your relationship or address more specific challenges (maybe communication? 😉 ), this course offers essential tools and practical ideas to help you build a relationship that lasts a lifetime. The course is based on Christian principles but is designed for all couples with or without a church background.
It starts on Sunday, September 16 at 6:00pm and will continue every Sunday until November 4 (excluding Thanksgiving Sunday). The cost is $25 per couple and includes two workbooks, refreshments, and childcare for kids up to grade 4.
I love every opportunity to continue building a strong foundation for my marriage. I don’t want to wake up one day in the future and have unresolved issues that can’t be resolved. I want to work on my communication skills now so that we are prepared for all the challenges that will come our way. Marriage is hard. Navigating expectations and learning how to serve one another is challenging. But marriage is also so much fun and it’s an amazing feeling to be known and loved by someone.
