Great marriages happen intentionally, not automatically. Drift happens in Christian couples, but coaches and ministry leaders can help couples gain the marital bliss for which they are searching. Kissing is the bridge leaving the land of loneliness and crossing into the land of closeness. This pre-conference workshop will utilize unique coaching tools, such as RISE and the Story of Us, emphasizing daily surrender to Jesus and insights from positive psychology. Participants will gain coaching skills that will enrich their marriage so they can enrich other marriages. 

Learning Objectives

Describe how to move clients from drifting to loneliness to regularly living in the land of closeness 
Create an emotionally safe marriage where coaches and ministry leaders help couples freely share fears and dreams with one another 
Formulate and strengthen core values with couples, which allows them to grow old together
