The Love After Marriage eCourse is now available

Experience the marriage you’ve hoped for.

From the moment we say “I do,” we all want and hope for a strong and intimate marriage, and yet so few people are actually seeing this desire come to pass. Love After Marriage helps couples connect on a deep and intimate level so they can experience the kind of relationship they’ve longed for.

Marriage can be really difficult. We’ve all had those times of escalating conflicts, feeling hurt and frustrated toward each other, and experiencing the pain and stress of disconnection – even hopelessness at times. We understand, and have helped thousands of couples learn how to restore, maintain, and deepen the connection in their marriage relationship, regardless of their history.

 

Unfortunately, almost all of us enter into marriage with a lack of skills and tools to help create the marriage we desire – one filled with love, intimacy, enjoyment, hope, and security. But it doesn’t have to stay that way. There is hope.

 

Love After Marriage (LAM) is led by Barry and Lori Byrne, who have helped countless married couples experience a level of relationship they never thought possible. With disarming transparency and vulnerability from their own lives, Barry and Lori share insights on how to draw closer to your spouse and the overwhelming benefits of pushing past the hurts and disconnection that we all have felt from time to time.

 

When you go through LAM, you will:

1. Learn how to develop deeper intimacy by inviting God to play an active role in your relationship.
2. Practice implementing simple and practical tools that will help you build and protect your connection. With the right tool set, even the most stressful and difficult of problems becomes an opportunity to become even closer with your spouse.
3. Gain insight and wisdom on how to further connect on an emotional, sexual and spiritual level.

 

Don’t let pain and conflict go unresolved in your marriage. If we are unintentional in this area, we are leaving room for disconnection to grow. Build and protect the intimacy in your relationship by getting equipped with the right skills and tools, and learning to navigate the intricacies of marriage with God. By investing the time and energy now, it will create deeper connection between you and your spouse for decades to come.

WHAT PARTICIPANTS ARE SAYING:

I came to the workshop wounded, hurt, angry, resentful and bitter towards my spouse. But Love After Marriage gave us the tools to work through past woundings and present issues. It feels like a breath of fresh air to our marriage! We are leaving with Holy Spirit operating in us and through us, and a stronger relational foundation and tools to continue to make our marriage even stronger.
Having just come back from our honeymoon, I wasn’t sure what we’d really get out of LAM. It turns out that the course was deeper and more powerful than any spiritual retreat or conference I’ve ever been to in my life. God was given the floor to speak, restore, heal and reconnect us from the very start. I can’t believe how open, honest and encouraging LAM was to us as newlyweds. We feel connected, equipped and ready to take on whatever God has for us as a couple.
Twenty-five years of marriage and twenty-five years of disconnection at every level - spiritual, physical, and emotional. I felt that my heart was encased in a block of ice and that I was trapped in a glass elevator and couldn’t connect. I was desperate for breakthrough and had tried everything. BUT GOD HAS BROKEN THROUGH! The glass elevator has been smashed. The ice is melting and I can breathe and am starting to feel. I have always been envious of how other men truly love their wives. NOW I DO! I LOVE MY WIFE! Do not give up hope.

CORE VALUES

VULNERABILITY AND TRANSPARENCY

We encourage you and your spouse to be willing to share whatever Holy Spirit asks you to share about your life and “inner-world.” As you both are willing to invite others into the deeper places of your lives, it will bring amazing transparency, vulnerability and connection in your marriage and other relationships.

WISDOM AND DISCERNMENT

We want LAM to be a place where there is freedom to question and learn. In this process, we will help you and your spouse learn how to better recognize and discern God’s voice within the context of a safe, small group community.

HONESTY AND TRUTHFULNESS

We encourage you both to go to new levels of honesty in your marriage. Trust, security and intimacy are solid foundations for building a strong connection in your relationship. It’s worth the effort!

PERSEVERANCE

Despite any previous disappointments or discouragements in learning how to deepen your connection in your marriage, we encourage you to continue to move towards hope, growth and improvement – there’s only failure if you quit trying.

COMMITMENT

We promise that if you both fully commit yourselves to the entire LAM process, there will be a big win on the other side that will be lasting life changing – in all areas of your life.

DEPENDENCY ON HOLY SPIRIT

We aim to continually listen to God’s leading and direction throughout every session, which allows you and your spouse to receive the most you can out of your LAM experience.

FAITH, BELIEF AND EXPECTATION

We begin each workshop by inviting the transforming power and presence of Holy Spirit. We have confidence that God will guide you and your spouse in your ability to form a deeper, Godly and loving marital connection.

A FOUNDATION IN THE WORD OF GOD

All of our understanding and teaching of marriage, spirituality and sexuality are founded on truths and principles from the Bible.

WORKSHOP CORE COMPONENTS

DVD TEACHING

The teaching sessions present fresh, bold insights on basic principles of spiritual, emotional and sexual oneness within marriage – which prepares the way for these insights to be activated and exercised in a safe, small group setting.

SPIRIT CONNECTION

This is one of the most powerful components of the workshop. Based on the leading of the Holy Spirit, a couple who needs significant breakthrough is chosen to go in front of the class and receives inner healing and coaching for their issue(s). This must be done in a safe, caring and empowering environment that is created in a LAM environment. Couples who risk this kind of vulnerability usually receive tremendous breakthrough. Often, God wants to release that same breakthrough to the other participants. The couples observing benefit as they relate to the issues covered and prayed through. Spirit Connection can be followed up with prayer for everyone in the group who is struggling with similar issues.

TESTIMONIES

Sharing testimonies is a powerful opportunity to encourage those who may still be waiting to see breakthrough and improvement in their own lives and marriages. After a participant shares their testimony, we pray and release this same breakthrough and blessing on the other participants. “And they overcame him because of the blood of the Lamb and because of the word of their testimony…” (Revelation 12:11)

SMALL GROUP ACTIVITIES

This is community in action! Couples share their response to the questions they answered during the individual/couple activity. Table facilitators and small group participants listen with the help of Holy Spirit and minister to each person after they share. Every individual is empowered to minister as the small group gathers around each couple, laying hands on them, praying, prophesying, and blessing what God is doing.

HOMEWORK

The homework is designed to give each couple the opportunity to “bring the lesson home” in order to practice and develop the skills necessary for a successful marriage in their day-to-day life.

INDIVIDUAL/COUPLE ACTIVITIES

Here is where the rubber meets the road! Sometimes activities are done individually, and at other times as a couple. These individual/couple activities give participants an opportunity to evaluate their own feelings and behaviors and share them with their spouse and small group members. This time often prepares the way for further growth for each couple during the rest of the workshop.

DEVOTIONALS

Each lesson in the LAM workbook contains a corresponding devotional that allows for further meditation on the principles taught, as well as stimulation for further discussion between you and your spouse.

MODELING

Teaching and then modeling practical tools in front of the group allows an individual or couple to experience the tool as it is applied to their current circumstances, as well as allows the rest of the group to see the tools practiced in real life circumstances.
