An 8-week small group experience that will enable you to better understand your spouse and acquire tools to resolve conflicts and build marriage harmony.

We utilize the 5 Days to a New Marriage curriculum developed by Drs. Terry Hargrave and Shawn Stoever.

For questions about start dates on new small groups, please contact Jim Lesh at or 626.808.2097 and provide the following information: name, phone number, email address and preferred day and time for classes.  They will get back to you as soon as possible.

Detailed Description

In a small group of 3-5 couples, you will learn new ways to relate to your spouse, especially during times of conflict, in an informed and loving manner. You will also learn how to transition from your “pain cycles” to your “peace cycles”, and you will be challenged to formulate a vision for what you would really like your marriage to become.

Each class meets once a week for eight sessions of about 90 minutes. The curriculum includes DVDs, discussion, workbooks, and about one hour of homework per week. The groups are facilitated by a lead couple.

The program is intended for couples with basically sound marriages or marriages that are in need of improved skills for conflict management, with the desired outcome of lifting their marriage to a higher plateau.

New groups start at various times during the year, based on interest.

The leader couples are not trained psychologists or marriage therapists, but are ordinary couples who have completed the class and are enthused to share the results with others. We have received very positive feedback from participants, with some couples volunteering to start conducting groups of their own!

The cost for the program is $32 per couple for the workbooks.
