Enjoyable and Helpful

The Intentional Marriage Weekend provided tools and topics for discussion and ways to continue building a solid relationship and foundation. I like the intermingling of teaching and interactive activities and the variety of activities. I like that it is focus on self first and then the couple as without two healthy people (or getting better) the couple will struggle. This is the first conference my wife and I have gone to together and it has been enjoyable and helpful. Thank You!

Major Value!

Major Value! You and your wife’s words help soften my heart, to receive my wife’s needs. It woke me up with the things that I need to be a better husband. It provided Togetherness being us and communicating what we are needing to work on. I believe if I use the tools you gave me it will make a huge impact. It provided together time to find where our relationship needed more attention. You two are AMAZING!! THANK YOU for sharing these things to help us to better ourselves through God’s word.

I WILL BE MORE Intentional

It opened my eyes on how I viewed God. I WILL BE MORE Intentional! I never realized it’s importance.
– Daniel –

Today’s marriages need intention more than ever before. There are currently 60.8 million marriages in the United States. Divorce rates are 50% for first marriages, 67% for second marriages and 74% for third marriages. Whether the marriage is struggling, healthy, or in the pre-marital phase, The Intentional Marriage offers programs to build stronger communication, connection, commitment and relationship.

Couples need to spend time looking at what is important in keeping marriage fresh and alive. We are committed to helping couples reach a new level of effectiveness in their marriage and creating a culture of growth in marriages that focuses on Christ.

The Intentional Marriage is all about the couple connecting with their identity in marriage and answering the question of how to build an emotionally healthy marriage, with a Biblical foundation. The Intentional Marriage provides practical tools and steps needed to apply toward their relationship, resulting in a motivated, inspired and re-energized marriage.

What Will I Learn?

Emotional Health

So often couples fall into the trap of having an emotionally unhealthy marriage. Find out how to understand emotions so you can win emotionally in your marital relationship.


We all carry baggage into our marriage that leaves us broken. Most people do not spend time working on that baggage. Find out how dealing with your baggage increases the intimacy in the relationship!

Love & Respect

Marriages that are rooted in reacting to each other have a high rate of conflict. When couples make an intentional shift to responding to each other they will experience love and respect.
