The Wives Summit will host a series of BREAK OUT SESSIONS. This will allow you to get focused attention on areas you may be struggling with in your marriage. IF YOU DO NOT STRUGGLE WITH ANY OF THESE TOPICS, please check the Q&A session.
PLEASE NOTE: All break-out sessions will remain private. You will receive an email indicating which room number you will be attending. The sessions will be labeled by NUMBER. We want to maintain your privacy.
Here is a brief description of the break-out sessions:
-In your marriage do you feel fearless or fearful? Do your husbands words and actions build you up or tear you down? Do you feel as though you are walking on egg shells in your marriage? Gods word says "there is no fear in love. " let's see how this applies to our marriage.
-Do you feel as though you are carrying the full weight of your life and in your marriage? Do you feel you have to be in control of everything, make all the decision, and even parent your kids AND your husband? Are you the main income earner in your family? This breakout will be instrumental in helping you find relief from the pressure and weight you have been carrying.
-Have you learned your husband is having an affair? Do you suspect he is having an affair but can't prove it? Has the pain of the truth sent you into a fetal position? Learn the tools to becoming a victor of adultery instead of a victim.
-Do you feel alone, neglected or longing for male attention? Do you feel almost desperate for affection and affirmation?
