Marriage Monologues Event Coming to Rogers
Siloam Springs, Ark. (October 12, 2009) — NWA Healthy Marriages, a community service of the Center for Relationship Enrichment (CRE), will offer the “Marriage Monologues” marital enrichment seminar Saturday, Oct. 24, 9 a.m.-4 p.m. The event will be held at John Q. Hammons Convention Center at the Embassy Suites, 3303 Pinnacle Hills Parkway in Rogers. The cost of workshop is $39 per couple, and reservations are required. Dr. Gary J. Oliver and Dr. Greg Smalley will be joined by Acts of Renewal, a husband and wife acting team who will not just “teach” how to have a great marriage but will “demonstrate” through hilarious performances how to cultivate conversations that strengthen relationships. Couples will also receive a personal Couple Checkup assessment code to take online after registering for the event and leave the event with a discussion guide for ongoing couple interaction. Couples can register for the event online at www.nwamarriages.com.
