Topic: “Grace Filled Marriage” (by Tim Kimmel) 
Description: Most marriages don’t fail because they lack love…they fail because they lack grace.  Grace can make good marriages into great marriages. Grace can bring intimacy and restoration to broken marriages. Grace means giving your spouse something they desperately need but don't necessarily deserve…like kindness, forgiveness, the benefit of the doubt. 

•Discover what lens you are viewing  your spouse through
•Learn how to resolve conflict
•Learn how a grace-filled marriage leads to a life that truly makes a difference

Facilitators: Alf and Jill Berry
