Approximately 210 couples registered for the 2015 Marriage Retreat in Newport, Rhode Island. The event was held at The Hyatt Hotel on Goat Island, a beautiful scenic spot right on Narragansett Bay, complete with lighthouses, the Claiborne Pell Newport Bridge in the distance, and frozen waters. Spectacular teaching came from Sam & Geri Laing of Florida, the weekend’s keynote speakers. They taught a very deep, thorough lesson on the 4 Temperaments: 1) Sanguine, 2) Choleric, 3) Phlegmatic, and 4) Melancholy. Each of these characteristics helps us to understand our spouses better and gives us reasons why we behave the way we do. With this wisdom, married couples can then learn to love each other’s strengths while strengthening each other’s weaknesses. Overall, the retreat left everyone feeling refreshed and encouraged and looking forward to next year! Click on the pictures below!
