Together, as a community at Beulah, it is our desire that all of your relationships be all that God intended them to be. Strong relationships reflect God’s closeness as a relational loving God to our world. At Beulah we offer relationship enrichment classes for everyone, marriage preparation workshops for dating and engaged couples, and marriage retreats, all of which are designed to help you live and love God’s ways as you experience and enjoy the greatest and richest relationships possible while growing in His character and participating in His Kingdom of love.
Love and Respect
Dr. Emerson Eggerichs, author of Love and Respect, has discovered that love best motivates a woman and respect most powerfully motivates a man. His research reveals that during marital conflict a husband most often reacts when feeling disrespected and a wife reacts when feeling unloved. This applies to conflict in any close relationship between a man and woman such as father/daughter, mother/son, brother/sister, close friends, dating, engaged, or common-law relationship.
The Love and Respect course content uses DVD presentations by Dr. Eggerichs along with a workbook of condensed notes, questions for group discussion, and practical exercises for the week. The course is helpful of any adult; married, divorced, separated, dating, and single. There will be groups for singles and for couples. Men and women will learn how to resolve conflict, dealing with the negative reactions (the crazy cycle). They will also learn how to motivate each other by meeting each other’s needs (the energizing cycle). Even those who feel hopeless in their relationships will gain understanding on how to handle an indifferent or unresponsive partner (the rewarded cycle). Participating in a Love and Respect relationship enrichment group can help you experience understanding, forgiveness, reconciliation, change, and hope.
