Description: "We love each other, but sometimes it feels like we're speaking different love languages." According to renowned pastor and marriage counselor Gary Chapman, we are wired to speak one of five "love dialects." During this two-part workshop, you'll quickly learn your primary love language and that of your partner. We'll then have a week to practice using these simple new skills. Our second session will be a fun feedback night on how this "speaking a new language" experience worked out. We're extending childcare for the second session so that you can end the night with a date. You absolutely do not have to be in a traditional marriage to take advantage of this experience. Singles are welcome, but coming with your loved one will really enhance your experience.
