You're Invited to the Forever Marriage Workshop
Join us February 3rd for some Pre-marriage education. CenterPeace will deliver 6 powerful 20 minute talks about the biggest challenges in marriage: Communication, Family Dynamics, Conflict Resolution, Healthy Boundaries, Money and Sex and intimacy. You will have time with your partner to discuss the content privately and meet with some marriage experts that will help you build a solid foundation for a Forever Marriage.
You will hear from five marriage counselors and speakers who have helped thousands of couples build strong marriages that not only survive, but thrive.

He and his wife Brooke really learned the concepts of great teamwork while paying off $90K in debt.
