For too long couples – married or thinking about marriage – have had to “do the best they can” in their relationships based primarily on responses to what they saw that worked or didn’t work in couples they’ve observed. We think marriage is too important to leave to just doing the best we can. At The Basic Idea Ministries we’ve learned several key principles that have been applied in thousands of couples and have resulted in tremendous positive change in lives, marriages, and families. Our staff would love to have the opportunity to share these principles with you.
When couples look for marriage support or marriage help, one of the first questions they ask is “Where can I find a marriage conference?” At The Basic Idea Ministries, marriage conferences are key ingredients in the process of establishing a great marriage or finding marriage training to help fix problems in the relationship. Couples are not looking for a magic wand as much as they are looking for solid relationship advice and marriage communication skills.
The questions we address at our marriage conferences – workshops – retreats are the following:
- How do I remove the barriers hindering our relationship?
- How do we fulfill our God-given roles as husband and wife?
- What keys to healthy communication can we experience daily?
- How can I respond in love and be truthful at the same time?
- What can I do to keep love alive and growing?
- What does Jesus mean by “loving one another as He loved us”?
We are aware that a marriage conference may not be the only ingredient in a recipe for making a marriage healthy or preventing problems in the relationship; but at an effective marriage conference couples can break downward trends or unhealthy patterns. They can experience deeper levels of communication and mutual care that prepare them to engage new skills and healthy habits for a hopeful future.
Changing lives and changing legacies mean a change in the communities and consequently in our culture. Very few would argue that our culture is just fine as it is. We, all of us, need to see more examples of God’s love being lived powerfully behind the closed doors of our homes. We all want to see loving relationships lived before our children and grandchildren so that they will have clear examples of God’s love. We at TBI hope to be a part of God’s work accomplishing this kind of miracle-ministry of healing marriage and families.
