Marriage is hard. It requires work. And sometimes all of that hard work can feel as if it’s getting you nowhere. If you’ve settled for “good enough” in your marriage, if you feel hopeless, if you want to give up, or even if you’ve already quit trying, take heart. You can transform your marriage. In this course, Dr. Ron Welch, psychologist and professor at Denver Seminary, will walk you through several principles from his book 10 Choices Successful Couples Make. You will learn how to make specific choices that will help you in every facet of your marriage; and, most importantly, you will discover why you have reason to hope for a transformed marriage in which you and your spouse can help each other grow into the people that God intended you to be.

An excellent course!Russell
This course opened my eyes to the fact that marriage is hard, it takes a lot of work and without realizing it I had just settled for what I have. As we worked through the Biblical principles I realized that things don’t have to be the way they are. We have choices and things can change through transformation. The teachings gave me hope and a new outlook. I understand so much more than I thought possible before starting the course. Moving forward I’m very optimistic about the things God can do to bring about change as we grow closer to each other and to Him in the process.Santhia
