Topic: 5 Principles that will help you work on your sex life.
· Do you feel lost, alone or bored in your relationship?
· Are you frustrated, hurt or angry with your spouse?
· Are you constantly fighting? Or, do you simply shut down?
· Have you thought about separation or divorce?
· Does talking about it only make it worse?
Then it is time to do something about it. This weekend can be the first step towards rediscovering your relationship and original love.
IN ORLANDO JULY 17-19 and TAMPA JULY 24 - 26
Some of you might say it is a far drive, I will need to schedule babysitting for the children, caring for pets, make work arrangements.
But the final question is: Is our relationship more important than the above inconveniences?
We go through the above hardships to go on vacation.
Lou and I attended this weekend over ten years ago. We are extremely happy to have attended and we benefited greatly from this weekend. Like many of you can attest to:
Marriage is HARD WORK and it does not come with a manual so you have to take time and find these types of weekends that help you begin a relationship education and healing process.
Think of your happy smiles and hopes and dreams when you got together. Then life happens. Don’t let life and its trials and difficulties intervene with those smiles, hopes and dreams. It is possible to patiently attain them again and most importantly use the tools your learn to work together as a couple to rediscover your loving marriage relationship. It is worth it?
If you WORK the program, the program will WORK for you.
For thousands of couples that have gone through the program the answer is YES
If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact us by email or phone. And most importantly if you know of a couple that would benefit from this weekend please pass the information forward.

Little Things Mean a Lot
When we were children, we went to Kresge’s or the Ben Franklin. We called them “dime stores;” today, we go to some rendition of a “Dollar Store.” These emporiums are full of little things; some are necessities, and some are just doodads that make life nicer. We listed things we have bought at a “Dollar Store”: detergent and cleaning supplies, a light for a Christmas nativity scene, stocking stuffers and holiday pot holders, Teddy Bears for Sweetheart Breakfast centerpieces, puzzles for visiting children, patio lights and candles.
In marriages, little things can mean a lot. They can be words like “thank you,” “excuse me,” “I’m sorry,” or “Hubba Hubba.” They can be calls to say “How is your day going?” or a “phone photo,” an unexpected flower, taking the garbage out, helping clean cat boxes, bringing coffee or a cold drink, or laying out vitamins.
These little things may only take a minute, but they are not just niceties; they are necessities that reaffirm daily that we are happy to be married to each other. Little things strengthen the bond between us.
In what little ways do you show your appreciation for your mate with words or actions?
In what ways do you hear or see your mate showing appreciation for you?
Make some lists and share them with your mate knee to knee.*
*Face each other, hold hands, make eye contact and give each other undivided attention.
