The Love and Laughter Strengthening Marriages 6-Part Workshop is a fun and friendly series of workshop-style discussions focused on fostering skills and covering topics that can help couples develop and maintain an enriching relationship with each other.  The LDS-commissioned material draws on academic and professional expertise.

Who should attend:
The classes are intended for couples wishing to enhance love and laughter in their relationships. It’s intended for spouses together but anyone can come. Non LDS members are welcome. Invite your friends!  We hope that attendees will start with the first week and attend all 6 classes.  Registration is requested but not required.
What we will do:
Discussions will be led by Scott and Robin Lunt (Dove Valley ward) using the LDS manual for Strengthening Marriage (link: https://www.lds.org/topics/family/strengthening-marriages-and-families?lang=eng). We hope to have fun with the topics and provide time for couples to discuss the topics and assignments between them. We will do our best to include appropriate outside material (like movie clips, web sites, etc) to make things fun and engaging. Call it a date night! We will also organize material we discuss or additional reference material and add it to this web site (see blog below).
