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!
RECONNECT, REIGNITE, AND RESURRECT YOUR MARRIAGE
Whether your marriage needs to be reignited, or be completely resurrected, Re|engage is a safe place for couples to reconnect. This ministry offers hope to marriages by helping couples move toward oneness through stories of grace, teaching, and small groups. Re|engage is a marriage enrichment program; whether couples are struggling to get along, have broken relationships, or simply want to grow closer together, marriages in any condition can benefit.
REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED. Fall session will run August 14-December 15.
Please contact Bruce@MFITulsa.org if you are interested in finding out
more information or registering for this program.
Re|engage is for marriages, between one man and one woman, in any and all conditions. Every marriage will benefit, whether couples are struggling to get along, the marriage seems broken, or they simply want to grow closer together as a couple. Closed Groups are reserved for couples who are both committed to the process. Previously married couples who are separated or divorced, but might consider reconciling, are also welcome to attend Re|engage. Re|engage is not intended for seriously dating, engaged, or cohabitating couples.
“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 our events and workshops will not only help keep your marriage afloat, but they will also bring you back to a place of strength for both of you.
My marriage seems dead, can you help us?
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 weekly and one-time events that will help you restore your marriage. Our events help couples rebuild, renew and regain their relationship.
We help people just like you build back their relationship.
What if my husband or wife won’t come with me?
That’s OK. You can still come to our Marriage Matters Mondays workshops. 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.
Is there Hope for our marriage?
Yes, there is hope for your marriage! If both of you are willing to make an effort to improve your relationship improvement comes faster. But as we mentioned above even one person in a relationship can make a change for the positive.
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. Nobody has a perfect marriage.
When we think we have it all together is just the time we should reevaluate. Complacency is never a good thing. Continual improvement means you are going in the right direction.
