Participants’ comments

“Good weekend getaway to focus on biblical principles of marriage & spend quality couple time. Benefitted through interactions with other couples during meal time. Marriage is a God intended art-piece, make it beautiful!”

Joseph & Christina Eio

“The topics discussed are relevant…videos with questions in-between helped us to ponder about ourselves, our spouses and our marriage. The most rewarding part of the Art of Marriage retreat was to spend time together to discuss about issues in our marriage.”

Kelvin & Seow Hui

“We came as we wanted to be intentional to grow our marriage in Christ, to give the best gift to our children through a strong marriage. Thus we invested time in the Art of Marriage. There are plenty of intentional time to process the wisdom communicated. Worthwhile especially for couples who find it difficult to get away for too many days. If anyone is undecided or hesitating, just make plans and come!”

Jeremy Koh and Suan Ai
Ministry Staff, Families-in-Covenant / Men-in-Covenant, Covenant Evangelical Free Church

“Art of Marriage is the best marriage seminar that I have attended and I am organising an Art of Marriage Retreat in my church in May 2018.”

Rev Henry Ng, The People’s Bible Church

“…reinforced my marriage and provided an excellent platform to resolve our issues”

SM

“Art of Marriage is gospel-centered. I was drawn to God and to my spouse.”

KL

“参加者都获益无穷,通过愉快的学习认识神对婚姻的教导。为着FamilyLife所设计的这份简易的材料而感谢神,真是超棒的!”

李津, 生命堂

“The Art of Marriage taught us that God intended our marriage to glorify Him. We were admonished to keep God in the centre as we address issues in our marriage. Come and experience the Art of Marriage and be blessed.”

Archer and Sok Fen
