5 Day Marriage Challenge
A Partnership with Dr. James Dobson’s FamilyTalk

It’s an oft quoted phrase that “couples who pray together stay together”. Further, couples who study the bible together or do devotions find a much deeper level of closeness together. Gary Thomas says that, “marital satisfaction is directly linked to spiritual intimacy, both with the Lord and with each other.”

SAMI is excited to announce a unique partnership with Dr. James Dobson’s organization, FamilyTalk. The 5 Day Marriage Challenge will act as a “launch pad” for couples to actively make God the center of their marriage. The Challenge will combine a 5-day broadcast series that involves different couples going through five devotionals from Dr. Dobson’s best-seller, Night Light for Couples. While the challenge will be promoted across the country, there will be a special expression in San Antonio including a “Marriage Challenge Celebration Night” – a special dinner event for couples that go through The Marriage Challenge.

Would you consider promoting the 5 Day Marriage Challenge in your church?  As you know, Dr. James Dobson is an institution in our country. This 5 Day Marriage Challenge is a unique opportunity to partner on a significant project with a valuable national ministry. Further, this allows us to activate many new family ambassadors in the city. It’s the first step in a vibrant partnership with a very significant ministry. Please consider being a part of this!

David Mace, a pioneer in marriage enrichment, once noted, “Marriage is the deepest and potentially the most gratifying of all human relationships, but it is also one of the most demanding. Unfortunately couples seldom have more preparation than a little advice from their parents and a new set of china.”

One of the greatest gifts you can give an engaged couple is a constructive marriage preparation process.  You are invited to attend a Prepare/Enrich facilitator training day held on Saturday, August 19th and led by Carlos and Nora Rodriguez, our expert P/E trainers! Prepare/Enrich is the #1 guide for helping couples explore and strengthen their relationships.  Built on a solid research foundation, it has been improved and refined over the years to become one of the best, most effective, easy-to-use relationship assessment tools available.  More than 100,000 facilitators have helped over 3,000,000 couples grow their relationships and solidify their marriages. Our presenters bring years of experience with this product and will share insight on how they use this powerful tool to help prepare couples for marriage.

If you work with couples as a staff member, pastor, or couple leader, this event will equip you to strengthen marriages in your congregation.
