Couples Workshop

Our Couples’ Intensive Workshop is for couples who have experienced sexual betrayal and are longing to expand genuine relational intimacy. This Intensive offers teaching from the perspective of Mark & Debbie Laaser’s book, The Seven Desires of Every Heart—How are men and women alike at the core of who they are, and what do they desire? We will explore these God-given desires and practice practical skills to access more connected communication. Our desire is to help couples become companions in life, building empathy and unconditional love for each other.

Couples who attend this workshop will experience that they are not alone in this journey. We create safety by allowing couples to work on and talk about only those issues that they feel comfortable sharing. The fellowship created by this group experience is powerful. In the context of this fellowship, couples will gain new insights about their relationship and new friendships as well. Most of all, they will learn new ways to have deeper and healthy intimacy. A great deal of time will be spent acquiring new skills and practicing new ways of relating. Our desire is that couples will leave with a new commitment and hope in their relationship and marriage.

If sexual addiction/compulsivity or sexual acting out (including viewing pornography) is a struggle for the husband, we highly recommend that he first attend our Men of Valor workshop. This insures that he will be well aware of his responsibility for being sober or pure. It is recommended that the husband have at least 90 days of sobriety prior to attending the couples’ workshop. We require that there has been full disclosure of all acting out behaviors between the husband and wife.

It is also helpful if the wife has had some support, whether it be in counseling or as part of a support group. Ideally, she might be more prepared for learning about couple’s intimacy if she has first been to the Women’s Journey workshop at Faithful & True. Location: Eden Prairie, MN

INTENSIVES are multi-day, on-site workshops designed to help participants uncover the root issues related to unwanted sexual behavioral patterns. They offer a safe environment to heal, and provide participants with concrete next steps. Intensives are conducted by experts in their field. 


Unlike a conference or seminar, participants interact with each other as well as with the leaders. Intensives are limited to a small group of individuals in order to be sure everyone’s specific situation is addressed.
