Beyond Survival Mode

“We had really good marriage prep, but then we were dropped into real life. A few months after we got married, I got pregnant. We went into survival mode. We weren’t intentional about spending time together and missed each other even though we lived in the same house. After Marriage in Christ, we were a lot more proactive about spending time together. It taught us to put God first and our spouse second. We pray together more now which is something we haven’t done since marriage prep. We also make time to sit and chat, go for a run or walk together each day. Thank you to Marriage in Christ for bringing this into our marriage and showing us the way forward.” - Nate & Lanita

 

More Than Roommates

"Marriage in Christ has given us excitement for our marriage again and to continue to make it new each day. Our 20+ year marriage seemed to become stagnant. We were almost living as roommates. MIC helped us communicate and talk about things that we may have never discussed or shared with each other, for example, 'What is your favorite ice cream?' Or 'What was your favorite childhood vacation?' They are simple questions, but the spur on good conversations and laughter."  -Greg & Liz

 

MIC Moment

We were recently in Utah visiting Dan's brother who recently moved into an independent living situation. Dan grew up surrounded by mountains in Provo. We were able to hike every day! On our last day I stopped at least 10 times to take pictures. Dan waited for me each time, without a word of complaint. Near the end of our walk as I stopped to take "one last picture", I thought, this is a MIC moment. What a great husband. I'm interrupting our pace and he is letting me enjoy myself taking pictures! -Dan & Anne

 

Holy Spirit Help

"Eight months into our marriage we were only bothered by the typical stuff - toilet paper placement, how to squeeze the toothpaste, and where to put the milk in the fridge. Nothing major. Then we attended a MIC seminar. We were surprised how much we took away from the MIC seminar. And how much we really needed the Holy Spirit in our relationship."  - Andrew & Emily

 

Newlywed Support

"As newlyweds, we feel it is very important to continually add to the foundation our relationship is built on. While we started this seminar at a 'good place' in our marriage, we went in knowing there is always room for growing closer to God together, and thus growing closer to each other. The seminar really supported this growth not only through the videos we watched, but also through our time in small group and prayer time as a couple. We recommend this seminar to all couples whether married 6 months, 60 years, or anywhere in between!"  -Kevin & Katie

 

Busy, But Connected

"We are learning how to make a more conscious and deliberate effort to strengthen our relationship. With three young kids, demanding jobs, and a full schedule of extracurricular activities, we realized it was very easy to get into autopilot mode when relating to each other. Since attending the Marriage in Christ seminar, we have found ways to find time to intentionally communicate to ensure we continue to grow together."  - Eric & Liz

 

Forgiveness

"We were about half way through the Marriage in Christ Seminar when I started telling my wife that I loved her and  would she forgive me.  She would respond with 'I love you, too'.  And 'would you forgive me?'  And I would respond back with 'Yes, I would.'   This still goes on to this day!" - Husband of 40 years

 

There's More!

“The daily conversation starters have us sharing more of our memories and life experiences - it is amazing how much more there is to learn about each other!"  -Wife of 45 years
