The Trust Marriage Workshop
An opportunity to explore what’s working in your marriage and leverage those skills in areas that may not be.
What’s my marriage for?
Have you ever asked yourself that question, or considered that your marriage, in addition to being a blessing to you, is meant to bless others? Peter states that we are “blessed to be a blessing.” What if your struggles and your victories were equally channels that bless?
Consider that one of God’s intentions in marriage is that it is a means to call out the glory that you and spouse have latent with-in. This close union between two people is one of the greatest means God uses to call us into becoming what we were created to be. It is with this in mind that we offer the Trust Marriage Workshop.
A “trust” is something held by one party for the benefit of another. In the Trust Marriage Workshop we explore what it takes to establish or deepen trust. We will explore ways to:
- Turn conflict and complaint into connection and intimacy.
- Get unstuck from recurring unwanted patterns.
- Build a marriage that fulfills you as well as a greater good.
Additionally, trust is essential to build a future worth having between any two people, and so we tackle how to expand trust in marriage.

Although the Trust Marriage Workshop does come from a Christian context and occasional references to the Bible are made, the purpose is not to proselytize but rather to distill wisdom and insights. The topics and concepts explored are not relegated to Christians alone but are relevant to all people. As an example, consider the Scriptural concept of sowing and reaping—this is a universal principle that you may have heard referred to as The Law of Reciprocity, or “you get what you give.” The invitation given is to listen for the truth offered in such passages that may support you in bringing about the results you desire or shed light on how come you are getting the results you currently have.
As you can see from the above example, everyone can relate to these types of universal principles. Great value has been found by anyone who attends—Christian or not.
If you have a group of 10 or more couples you’d like to have attend, contact us directly at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll gladly work with you.
If you’re looking to open up the workshop to others, let’s talk. We have coaches who will work with you to build a team and help you turn your vision into a reality. Contact us at email@example.com.
Seeing complaint as a longing instead of a problem made a huge difference in our marriage—especially in the realm of conflict. Now complaints are less about inadequacy and more about needs and desires.
