Journey Into Deeper Spiritual, Emotional and Sexual Oneness

God designed marriage for couples to have a deep emotional connection and intimacy. Often there are areas in marriage that need to be strengthened and improved. In this course, we will allow the Holy Spirit to help us remove hindrances and barriers to achieving increased spiritual oneness, and for guidance leading to healthy emotional and physical intimacy for a fulfilled marriage relationship. While the focus is on marriage, the precepts that are presented will further equip you for the relational aspects of life – at home, at work, or business relationships. Whether you just need to strengthen a few areas of your marriage or experiencing what seems like irreparable brokenness, after learning of the tools and principles introduced in this class, you will realize “there is hope!”  This series will also help the single parent and the single adult, to resolve conflict, align finances, etc. We invite you to join us. Invest in your most important relationship — your marriage.

When you go through LAM, you will:

1. Learn how to develop deeper intimacy by inviting God to play an active role in your relationship.
2. Practice implementing simple and practical tools that will help you build and protect your connection. With the right toolset, even the most stressful and difficult of problems becomes an opportunity to become even closer with your spouse.
3. Gain insight and wisdom on how to further connect on an emotional, sexual and spiritual level.

Don’t let pain and conflict go unresolved in your marriage. If we are unintentional in this area, we are leaving room for disconnection to grow. Build and protect the intimacy in your relationship by getting equipped with the right skills and tools, and learning to navigate the intricacies of marriage with God. By investing the time and energy now, it will create a deeper connection between you and your spouse for decades to come.
