|8||RINGS - Real Intimacy and Growth Skills|
August 11, 2012
8:45am - 4:00pm
This marriage enhancement class may be just what your relationship needs to either get started on the right foot or to be changed dramatically. People often ask us "What is the main reason that people divorce?". A recent study provides the answer: "Lack of commitment is the highest ranked reason."
This 8-hour class addresses the area of Commitment along with 4 others areas:
Connecting - what tools can we use to help us connect better & more intimately?
Cooperating - how can we learn to cooperate better by recognizing our differences?
Confronting - how do we improve things and not have conflict in the process?
Confiding - how can we make our relationship completely safe & transparent?
All these skills and more will be taught in this one-day session.
The class is well-suited for pre-married and married couples of all stages; dating, cohabiting, engaged, newly wed., happily married, struggling, dicorced, separated or remarried.
The cost is only $45 per couple and includes a workbook, catered lunch, and other refreshments throughout the day.
Class will be held at Cornerstone Fellowship Church, which is located next to Ollie's store, behind the Frederick Towne Mall off the Godlen Mile in Frederick. Just look for our banner and sign.
Pre-registration is required so that refreshments and supplies can be planned.

Here's what participants are saying about the RINGS Class
“ We can rebuild our relationship using tools such as those given here( in the class)”
“ I really liked being able to take things step by step to really get to the heart of the matter.”
“ Connecting and conflict resolution are the most useful concerns I had and these ( concerns) have been dealt with immensely”
“The one on one interaction with spouse/activities were really helpful. I didn’t understand the language of romance concept until taking this course and it all makes perfect sense now.”
“The tools: RINGS Chat, SOS – I think that the RINGS CHAT will be a great tool to communicate plans and needs and avoid my overwhelming feelings. Asking for my time- out respectfully and using the SOS tool will help so that I am more prepared to communicate instead of withdrawing when I get upset.”
“ I loved learning about myself and how I can show my husband love in a way that he can receive it. I also like the “movie memories” part and how we could be open and honest with one another.”
“ I appreciated the different steps to walk through issues – it’s nice to have a guideline to approach our issues and emotions. It’s a great start to any relationship. Things like this should be a basis of a communication course in school.”
“The last session was life changing”
