In 2008, through a dream encounter with the Lord, we (Barry & Lori Byrne) received a significant strategy on how to heal, strengthen and transform marriages! This was the birthing of Love After Marriage (LAM). The Lord said, “Bring Me the hard cases… I’ve seen your ministry, do you want to see Mine?” We’re here to tell you that after saying “yes” to Him, that’s exactly what He’s doing – His ministry – and we are blown away with how He is powerfully ministering to couples all around the world.
Love After Marriage is not a conference but a workshop designed for marriages at any level. Our goal is to instruct and guide married couples into a relationship characterized by openness, vulnerability and love. During the LAM workshop, couples have an opportunity through the working of the Holy Spirit, to learn and practice how to bring spiritual, emotional and sexual oneness into their relationship.
Participating in this workshop will provide:
We’d love to partner with you in seeing supernatural healing, strength and transformation come to your marriage!
Experience Love After Marriage through an intensive workshop setting. These workshops are designed as an accelerated format to bring supernatural breakthrough into your marriage. Come join us with Holy Spirit to learn how to bring spiritual, emotional and sexual oneness into your marriage!
Let Holy Spirit bring deep inner-healing into your life, your marriage and your family through the weekly Love After Marriage workshop. Journey with other couples for 18 weeks and learn how to walk in openness, vulnerability and love in community. Experience God’s supernatural transformation as you walk in the spiritual power God longs to release in and through your marriage!
Participants come into the workshop with a variety of different comfort levels in regards to their willingness to share. Every couple is encouraged to be willing to share whatever Holy Spirit asks them to share. When participants are willing to follow Holy Spirit, He will help them take risks and share openly about their lives and feelings. As couples are willing to invite each other and their small group into the “hard places” of their lives, the Holy Spirit brings amazing transparency and vulnerability, and then comes as the Wonderful Counselor.
The LAM workshop is to be a place where there is freedom to question and learn. We encourage participants to recognize what they perceive through their spirit and to validate that perception through the Word of God and through the honest feedback of the LAM community. Through this process, people learn to discern through their understanding as well as through their spirits.
These go hand in hand with vulnerability and transparency. Encourage couples to go to new levels of honesty with one another. Renewed trust, security and intimacy are the fruit of honesty and truthfulness when combined with mutual respect. They are worth the risk!
Couples are reminded to stick to their commitment in getting breakthrough in their marriage. They must not easily give up but be willing to make growth a priority. We’ve had couples who didn’t get their breakthrough until the 17th week of LAM 1, and another couple who got their breakthrough two weeks before LAM 2 ended. We stress commitment to pressing in until they get the breakthrough they are believing God for. He will come!
All of our understanding and teaching of marriage and relationship are founded on truths and principles from the Bible.
Love After Marriage requires a significant time commitment. In order to get the most out of LAM, couples must make attending LAM and doing the homework a priority. In addition, they must commit to investing themselves emotionally and spiritually. This is one of the most important investments they could make on behalf of their marriage!
Holy Spirit is really the One leading this workshop. While there is an agenda for the workshop leaders to use, we emphasize the value of the workshop leader continually listening to Holy Spirit’s direction throughout each session. For example, this can mean a willingness to go after areas He is bringing to the forefront or spending more time than allotted in an area because Holy Spirit is moving.

We begin each workshop by inviting the supernatural transforming power and presence of Holy Spirit. We have confidence that God will come and strengthen each couple in their ability to grow in their marriage. He is ready to empower ever person to do the impossible. He is for every couple. We invite Holy Spirit to stir up faith in each couple to believe and expect God’s loving intervention!

There are other requirements for becoming registered, which include demonstrated gifting, maturity and approval from your pastoral leadership. Please CONTACT US for more information.
