7 Principles for Making Marriage Work

We all want a great marriage. Like anything worthwhile, competency and greatness take learning and effort. Yearly in the fall, join dozens of other couples for an 8-week marriage class that teaches the behaviors of marriages that thrive. Taught by pastor Ron and Amy Citlau, join them as they share some of the best marriage advice you will ever hear. This class is an official Gottman Seven Principles class.

The Seven Principles for Making Marriage Work Class Starts 9/30

This class is based upon the research of the Dr. John Gottman. Dr. Gottman has revolutionized the study of marriage. After four decades of research on all facets of relationships, the Gottman Institute has developed an approach that not only supports and repairs troubled marriages, but strengthens happy ones.
