"My husband and I attended your “Laugh Your Way to a Better Marriage” seminar in Green Bay and I can’t say how you touched our lives. We walked out of there with a whole new sense of where we needed to be in our marriage, what we needed to be doing, why we're doing the things we're doing, and that we can make it work. You are a wonderful speaker and an inspiration to anyone who has the opportunity to see you in action."
Jeremy and Bobbi Olson Appleton, WI
Why a "laughter" approach? For one simple reason: to overcome the male objection to a seminar. Let’s be honest, a marriage seminar isn’t the first thing a guy thinks of when he thinks of “a fun way to spend the weekend.” We get that… Familiar with the fact that women are usually much more open to discussing marital problems than their spouses, Laugh Your Way to a Better Marriage is designed with an element of humor that appeals to couples, but is especially well-received by men. By making our event fun and non-threatening, more men are open to attending and both husband and wife end up having a fantastic time. However, while this event is fun, it is anything but light and ineffective. Mark’s great content and unique approach to troubled marriages has yielded one of the highest success rates in the country.
Unlike many traditional marriage seminars that tend to be overly serious, technical and emotionally taxing, the Laugh Your Way to a Better Marriage seminar is different because it helps couples deal with tough issues in a way that is fun and non-threatening. Through the two-day seminar, couples will laugh, learn and be able to make real positive changes to their marriage.
What's In Each Session?
"A Tale of Two Brains"
Session one begins with a whole lot of laughter as Mark explores the differences between men and women. In this session, Mark shows couples how their problems may result from how men and women THINK about life in a different way. He explains how many of the struggles couples face in marriage are the result of a HEAD problem, not a HEART problem.
Session 2"The #1 Key to Incredible Sex"
When couples are asked for feedback they usually rate this session as their favorite. One of the biggest problems in marriage today has to do with sex. As a society we are bombarded with sexual messages everyday and are supposedly the most highly sexually educated generation in history. So why are married couples having less sex than ever before? In his riveting and compelling style, Mark shows how the sexual messages of our culture are fundamentally flawed at best and destructive at worst. He covers five steps couples can take to achieve a healthy, fantastic sex life ending with The #1 Key to Incredible Sex.
Mark teaches couples, in this session, how to discover the true reasons why their spouse does what he or she does. In addition to being a great stress reducer, attendees are introduced to an amazing tool called the Flag Page. By focusing on motivation and each person’s best qualities, the Flag Page teaches couple a new way to discover what makes their spouse tick.
"How to Stay Married and NOT Kill Anybody"
In this final session, Mark covers the subject of forgiveness and shows how to avoid building resentment in marriage…not to mention sharing with couples the key to staying married for a lifetime.
