I Still Do - The Seasons of Marriage

In every culture, and throughout time, couples have found themselves struggling and searching to find a sense of peace and happiness with their spouse. Many will say they never would have considered or wanted a divorce, yet they can't seem to find any other solution except to walk away from the covenant relationship they entered into just a few years before. I Still Do - The Seasons of Marriage is intended to help struggling couples stay together, even when they don't "feel" like staying together.

I Still Do - The Seasons of Marriage rest upon biblical principles, and the structure built upon that foundation is based partly on The 4-Seasons of Marriage by Dr. Gary Chapman and Marriage and Family From a Biblical Worldview by Dr. Rod West. each couple will have the opportunity to evaluate which marital season they are presently experiencing, and instruction will be provided on ways of working their way out of a Fall or Winter season. For those in the Spring or Summer season then we say amen! We'll address different strategies and discuss ways on how to stay in those pleasant seasons for as long as possible.
