At the intersection of Biblical principles for marriage, social science, and edutainment (“education designed to entertain and amuse”) is a dynamic and practical marriage education event. The Empowered to Love Conference is designed to inspire, educate, and encourage couples in all seasons of life (pre-marriage, marriage, and blended family marriage) toward greater intimacy and stability. 

This cutting-edge training event teaches couples:

  • how to operationalize the Biblical quality of humility in their everyday lives
  • to map their current painful relationship dance and replace it with one rooted in love that fosters peace and emotional safety
  • how to transform their marital interactions from fear-based to grace-based

Topics include:

  • What empowers us to love the way we want to love? 
  • The pride/humility dynamic in marriage
  • The relationship between fear/pain and behavior in marriage (Pain Cycle)
  • How the Humility Shift fosters emotional safety
  • The fire triangle and conflict in marriage
  • Creating a Peace Cycle in marriage
  • Fostering healthy sexuality in marriage (one of Ron's most popular presentations)


"This material has made a significant difference in my own marriage and I've seen it change lives

in the marital intensive therapy I do with couples.

If you want more for your marriage,

I encourage you to be part of this practical and life-changing seminar." -- Ron Deal
