Art Form

When you were standing at the altar reciting your marriage vows, did you have any idea that marriage would be so complex? It probably didn’t take you long to understand that your spouse is not as much like you as you thought. But figuring them out is more than just an equation. Marriage is more than a science; it’s an art. And like any art form, requires an investment of time, focused study and the right tools. This engaging marriage video conference will help couples in our church and community build the God-honoring marriages we desire. It also brings a fresh approach to a video event by weaving together a variety of elements that help the principles come to life:

  • engaging stories
  • real-life testimonies
  • man-on-the-street interviews
  • humorous vignettes

Six Engaging Topics

“Your marriage and the marriages around you are colored by personalities, passions, and experience. Making marriage work is a divinely inspired art form. For more than three decades, FamilyLife® has been helping couples understand God’s plan for relationships. Now, in this video-guided event, The Art of Marriage, we weave together expert teaching, engaging stories, man-on-the street interviews, humorous vignettes, and much more to portray both the challenges and the beauty of God’s design.”

Building Stronger Marriages

The Art of Marriage consists of six video sessions and an accompanying manual that provides couples with projects to help apply the principles taught during each session. The manual is also designed for couples to use after the event by offering articles, date night ideas, and useful tips for continuing to strengthen their marriage.
