Mike Maynard shares a little about the retreat and his heart for couples.

What marriage couldn’t use a little more adjusting here or tightening there?  Take it from a couple who have had a few missing nuts & bolts. Judy and I have had our share of bumps and jolts along our marriage journey. We have been blessed to have wonderful Christian pastors, mentors, couples, and counselors along the way to give good advice and prayer.

Attending a conference and meeting the authors of “I Love You More, ” Drs. Les and Leslie Parrott, was the basis for us offering a class of the same name here at St. Luke. It has been such a blessing to us. This class looks at conflict as a tool to help improve our marriages. The communication techniques learned from these lessons will be expanded upon at the “Fixer Upper Retreat, ” with Pastor Dan & Gail Flynn joining us on this journey with you. We would love to have you at the Sunday School classes, but you are welcome to attend the retreat either way.
