MOST COUPLES DON'T KNOW "HOW" TO BE MARRIED
Adventures in Marriage (AIM) is internationally recognized as one of the very best relationship education programs in the field. Most couples do not know “how” to be married. They never learned the right way to build a strong marriage that will last. Instead they grew up watching unhealthy relationships and then assumed somehow their marriage would turn out different.
Adventures in Marriage is a highly interactive program that teaches couples the practical “hands on” skills essential to build a healthy, thriving marriage that can go the distance. AIM helps couples discover better ways to meet one another’s needs, communicate, resolve conflicts, express anger, avoid dirty fighting, and understand how their personality styles impact relationships for better or worse.
Fun, practical, and easy to learn, Adventures in Marriage is appropriate for couples at any age or stage. AIM is designed to reach couples across the spectrum – it helps couples with good marriages discover how to have a great marriage, and it helps distressed marriages reboot and learn a much better way.
CLASSES COMING UP
Adventures in Marriage is NOT a counseling program. AIM combines Christian principles with the latest research, and teaches couples practical, attainable skills anyone can learn to love well and create the marriage they have always wanted. Come away with us on a great adventure to discover how to build the marriage you have always wanted with the spouse you already have!

Avoid the mind reading that so often leads to misunderstanding between couples, and learn to avoid assumptions
Express and accept anger without destroying love
Fight in such a way that you resolve the issues at hand and actually feel closer to your spouse

"I have never felt so good about my relationship with Tori!!!! I did things this weekend I never thought I could say or do. You brought out a different person that I never thought was there... The way you explain things and go into depth is so interesting. I was amazed at how I got so involved in this retreat. I am smiling right now thinking about what I learned and how I can become a better husband, Dad, and friend. Tori and I continued to have amazing discussions on the way home. We learned more about each other this weekend then we ever have. Tori and I talked about how we have best friends now. We both never had a friend to talk to. We have each other now!! ... I still have a lot to learn but now I have the tools to do it!! Thanks again, I can't say it enough!!!!
