After nearly seven weeks of “staying at home,” even the best of marriages may feel a little strain these days.
Join us Saturday, May 2, at 7:30 p.m., for a special workshop just for marrieds, as we each look at our marriage and discover “It’s Better Than You Think.” The workshop will be hosted by Steve & Tricia Staten.
We can easily misjudge the quality of our marriages by a handful of experiences. But when we make use of the best tools, our perspective and experiences begin to reflect our better vision.
SESSION: REFRAMING YOUR STORY
Marriage is partnership that works best when couples find their sweet spot through individual reflection, self-discovery, and the harmonizing of their differences. Even the most challenging marriages can experience an astonishing new story.
BREAK FOR EXERCISES
It would be helpful if you print these exercises prior to the workshop.
SUMMARY AND CONCLUSION
Who can Attend?
The workshop is open to both married and engaged couples. Ideally both partners should attend; but if that is not possible, the workshop would still be helpful if just one person attends.

Steve and Tricia Staten
For 25 years, Steve and Tricia Staten served in the full-time ministry in the Chicago Church of Christ. Before going into the ministry in 1988, Steve worked as a technician, engineer and systems analyst. While Steve brings a systems approach to problem solving, Tricia is an artist and brings a complementary holistic approach—for family, church, and the workplace. Together, they bring unique disciplines to the dynamic of marriage, beginning with what they call “the play space.”
The Statens currently work as conflict management consultants, and have both participated in Lipscomb University’s Institute for Conflict Management certification courses. Steve holds a master’s degree in Conflict Management from Lipscomb University and a master’s degree in New Testament Theology from Wheaton College.
They have three grown Christian daughters, Tamera Kinsley, Talia Laing, and Taylor Staten; two sons-in-law (and a third soon-to-be son-in-law!) as well as several grandchildren.
