You will discover a simple truth hidden in plain sight that explains why your spouse negatively reacts to you, and how it differs from why you negatively react to your spouse! Typically, you both see the other as childish when negatively reacting because you wouldn’t react that way! What is that simple truth?
The key to motivating your spouse is meeting your spouse’s deepest felt need during conflict, which differs from your deepest felt need during conflict! Commonly, you both overlook the other’s felt need during conflict because you feel the other ought not to feel that way! What is that deepest need?
In all marriages there are seasons in which one spouse is less responsive to the other for any number of reasons. What can motivate you during that season when your spouse is not motivating you?

JHOutback, a Christian family ministry, provides a beautiful venue and lively program in which you can give your family member a life-changing GIFT of intentional, un-distracted time to re-connect, while also learning practical strategies to strengthen your relationship with God, your family member, and your community. This unique Friday night through Sunday afternoon camping adventure takes place Oct. 26-28, 2018 at the beautiful True Vine/ McRae Farm in Eutaw, Alabama. http://www.truevinefoundation.com/index.html
This get-a-way, facilitated by dozens of volunteers from area churches, is designed to build, strengthen and/or restore these family pair relationships: Father & Son, Father & Daughter, Mother & Son, Mother & Daughter, and Husband & Wife. The Parent-Child adventures are for parents and their children ages 13 and older. The Husband & Wife program is for marriages at any stages.
Family pairs are engaged through creative and fun outdoor activities, live music, and great food. Practical content is provided in a variety of ways, including skits by LA actor and Christian comedian, Travis Crim (former Alabama football player/youth pastor), personal talks, and precious time with your family member. Campers leave with a deeper understanding of life purpose, leadership, and practical ways to strengthen their family relationships. Married couples also learn their love languages, personality types, and other practical tools on how to strengthen their relationship with God and with their spouse.
The cost for this weekend is $325/pair (covers lodging, all meals & snacks, materials, program, etc.) Register online at: https://campscui.active.com/orgs/OutbackAmerica0#/selectSessions/784702. Scholarships are available--please let Danny or Norma Lemley know if you desire financial assistance.

The Saint Mark Adult Education Committee is hosting
"Get Plugged In" Ministry Fair
Sunday, September 30, 2018
9:45-10:45 (During the Sunday School hour)
Family Life Center
The purpose of this event is to make members aware of opportunities to serve inside as well as outside the church. Everyone has some sort of gift they can share. We are encouraging every Sunday School Class and ministry group to have a display promoting their activities and mission projects. There will be opportunities to discuss with different groups what they do, who they serve, and how you can get involved. This would be a great opportunity to invite visitors and also recruit members of the church who are not members of a class. There will be light refreshments, coffee, and juice provided.
Pizza, Slide, and snow cones provided!
