GRC Host Art of Marriage Seminar

GRC Host Art of Marriage Seminar

The Grafton Reintegration Center hosted the first Art of Marriage Seminar to be facilitated within a prison.   This was facilitated by volunteers with FamilyLife, a nonprofit Christian organization with 18 men and their significant others at the Reintegration Center.  The Art of Marriage video seminar consisted of six dynamic sessions in an 8 hour event involving video, facilitator interactions, and handbooks that encouraged practical application.  The sessions covered the following: Love Happens: God’s Purpose and Plan; Love Fades: Overcoming Isolation; Love Dances: Fulfilling Our Responsibilities; Love Interrupted: Communication and Conflict; Love Sizzles: Experiencing Real Intimacy; and Love Always: Leaving a Lasting Legacy.

Feedback on this event reflected the value of the experience to enhance their relationship.  “This event allowed us to connect on a higher level both emotionally and spiritually.  We have also had an unresolved issue hanging over our heads for a few years that we thought could not be resolved until return home because phone calls and visits were not giving the time and environment needed to address these issues.”  The event concluded with couples taking a pledge in their commitment to their relationship.
