Similarities are important to a marriage. It is easy to understand and accept those aspects of our spouse we can relate to. However, the depth of our relationship depends on the degree to which we understand, accept, and care for our differences.
In this seminar, Mike and Becky help couples understand the different aspects of personality, as well as specific ways we can deepen our connection through our differences.
Session topics include:
· How We Communicate
· How We Recharge
· How Connect
· How We Order Our World
This is not your usual marriage conference, but a three session retreat that gives each couple the tools to enrich their marriage, and the time away to enjoy one another. Unplug and relax together, laugh together, and learn how to thrive in relationship with your best friend.

Mike and Becky Qualls' heart and life work is Firm Foundation Ministries, which is a full time teaching and counseling ministry committed to strengthening marriages and families. It began in 2000 with the passion of Mike and Becky Qualls to show couples what God can do in the lives of those who apply His truths to their marriage.
The goal of their teaching series, seminars and retreats is to unpack specific truths about how we care for the heart of marriage and family in very practical and useable ways. Their goal isn't to split an atom or unlock a mystery of the ages. Their goal is to help couples recognize the moments in marriage and family life that make a difference and take advantage of them in order to care for the relationships that God has given them.
Their desire is to do this with humility. Why? Because marriage has so many challenges that are common to all of us. There is no perfect couple. But, in humility we can all learn and grow.
Their desire is to do this with a bit of humor. Why? Because we are not perfect. If we can see the humor in these common themes of marriage we can be open to growth, to new things.
Their desire is to bring God's truth to life through the use of role plays and the sharing of stories. Many of the stories are their own.
Their focus is on what God's truths look like and sound like when applied to caring for the hearts of our spouse and our children.
With over 40 years of combined experience in ministering to children, adolescents, couples and families, Mike and Becky have a heart for helping people experience true joy in life.
The Qualls have been married since 1986. Mike is a licensed Clinical Social Worker and Becky has a B.S. in Social Welfare. They reside in Lee's Summit, Missouri with their sons, Taylor and Tanner.
