Getting to the Root of Conflict

Have you ever wondered what causes the conflicts in your marriage? Is there one basic reason why you and your spouse seem to continually battle with each other? If you have considered these questions, you are on the right track because you are searching for the root of your problems. Couples that consistently seek and work on the root issues of their conflict, position themselves to build strong Christ-centered marriages that will last a life time.

Maintaining Strong Roots in a Fast World

With hectic schedules and the frenzy of a fast-pace world, married folks often push aside their marital relationship to give priority to other areas, which can include children, work, hobbies, social media, and more. To have a healthy, thriving marriage, couples must strengthen their roots by making their marriage their highest priority.

Rooted in Forgiveness

A couple’s willingness to seek and give forgiveness is a major key ingredient to having a healthy marriage. Although forgiveness is essential to developing a strong marriage, demonstrating it can be most challenging. Talking about forgiving someone is much easier than actually doing it. When couples continue to bring up things that were said or done in the past, it is an indication that the roots of bitterness and unforgiveness run deep in their lives. To experience healing, couples must water the roots of forgiveness to strengthen their capacity to give and receive it.

Strengthening the Roots of Oneness

God’s plan for the husband and wife is for them to become ONE. However, when two people get married they soon discover developing oneness is a challenging task. They quickly realize they are two people with dissimilar backgrounds, desires, interests, gifts and personalities. Both husband and wife must come to understand that oneness in marriage does not mean they have to think exactly alike and agree on everything. Oneness means to be unified and committed to one another, working together to fulfill God’s plan for their marriage.

Workshop Presenters

How can you maintain a rock-solid marriage in a culture of divorce? Hear from couples you know who will share their experiences and provide you with a biblical framework for a healthy marriage.
