We have 60+ couples from our church, YNCC, attending a Marriage Day Retreat on Oct 4. A few months ago the Spirit of the Lord seemed to have put on my heart that this will be a special day for all who attend. I’ve been praying and preparing for this day together.
I sent an email today to all the couples and plan on posting the videos and worksheets I shared in the email here so it is easy to find.
In preparing for the retreat I asked the couples to watch 2 Gottman Videos.
I encouraged each couple to watch these and reflect on them together.
The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse by Dr. John Gottman that can predict relationship disaster and even physical illness and disease are: Criticism, Contempt, Defensiveness, & Stonewalling. Dr. Gottman offers ways of healing conflict.
