The spark is gone. It’s like you and your spouse have become married roommates. How do you get the excitement back?

Join Focus on the Family’s relationship experts, Dr. Greg and Erin Smalley,
to discover God’s path to joy and fulfillment in your marriage.

Your marriage is OKAY. But something is missing….

All marriages, even the really good ones need mending from time to time.

  • Do any of these describe your marriage?
  • The love is there, but the spark just isn’t?
  • Our emotional closeness has faded into polite indifference
  • We’re leading separate lives under the same roof
  • The kids are the only thing that we have in common
  • I’ve asked myself, “Is this all there is?”

Sure – you’re totally committed to love and honor your spouse till death do you part. But the routine of jobs, kids, chores, and other commitments can overshadow the romance and passion in any marriage. This can leave spouses feeling disconnected, disillusioned, and alone. Join Dr. Greg & Erin Smalley, in Resist the Drift, a live marriage seminar where you will learn how couples slowly fade into roommate behavior and you’ll discover how to rekindle passion, reawaken fun, refresh love, revitalize intimacy, and connect with your soulmate.

19h00 - 21h30pm

“to equip his people for works of ministry, so that the body of Christ may be built up”. – Ephesians 4:12 

Based on Hebrews 13:4, Focus on the Family has an opportunity to inspire, equip, activate, and support (Marriage Champions) to keep their own marriages strong and intentionally invest in other marriages to strengthen families and communities worldwide.  

It takes a village to sustain a marriage. Even the healthiest relationships go through conflict, disappointment, temptation, and difficult times. And it’s in these dark moments or painful seasons that Satan will do everything within his power to isolate couple and keep them suffering alone. 

But a “cord of three strains is not easily broken”. We need community. Therefore we need an army of mentor couples who are willing to invest in other couples.  

Join intentional guest speakers Dr. Greg & Erin Smalley in this upcoming Seminar for a time of equipping designed specifically for couples who want to enrich their own marriage and to pay it forward by helping others learn the knowledge and skills needed for a strong marriage that keeps growing.
