Monday evenings, 7:00 – 7:50 p.m.
Hicks Park and Community Center
Every married couple is unique. They are an US. There are things they like to do, places they like to go, histories that are their own. And whether they are loving their US, wondering if their US is going to make it, or somewhere in between, every couple at some level wants to become their best US. Join us as we explore doable, easy-to-understand core habits that will help you become your best US. Your Best Us is for anyone who wants a better marriage! Join us and experience why Marriage Matters!
“We don’t stop playing because we grow old. We grow old because we stop playing.”
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:
My marriage is hurting but I am not sure why:
First, know that you are not alone. Many folks have been through and are still dealing with tough times very similar to what you are facing. Relationships are complicated. Each person brings their own unique history and expectations to the relationship, then, when life happens (babies, in-laws, job changes), you have the perfect recipe for marital stress. The methods and insights that you will gain at this workshop will not only help keep your marriage afloat, but they will also bring you back to a place of strength for both of you.
You might not be sure if you can even continue on at this point, or even wondering “Are our best days behind us?”. You could be wondering if you will ever feel the same way about each other again, like you did at the start of your relationship. MFI provides Marriage Matters weekly marriage restoration workshops to help couples rebuild, renew and regain their relationship. We help people just like you each week gain background in their relationship.
What if my husband or wife won’t come with me?
That’s OK. When even one half of a couple latches on to new skills that these workshops provide, the relationship can improve and still grow even stronger. People will often come by themselves to MFI’s weekly Marriage Matters workshops and take home applicable information and insights to help their marriage from the moment they step foot back into their home.
What if we aren’t married yet?
Although MFI believes in marriage and promotes the benefits of a marriage relationship, we still believe in helping everybody. We will not be verifying marriage licenses at the door.
What if my marriage is fine?
Awesome! We hear that quite a bit, and folks who have a solid marriage relationship still find themselves getting great encouragement and useful information at MFI events and workshops, just like this one.
