Love and Respect

Learn the secret to cracking the communication code!

Emerson and Sarah Eggerichs
In 1999, Dr. Emerson Eggerichs launched his ground breaking Love and Respect ministry.  Through his teaching, Dr. Eggerichs and his wife Sarah reveal that love and respect plays a role in every relationship.  Happiness and success in marriage are not based on love alone. Many husbands feel they are not receiving the respect they need, and wives feel they are unloved.  Too often, good willed couples get caught in what he calls The Crazy Cycle....
"Wives don't feel love from their husbands so they react with disrespect, husbands feel disrespected and respond in unloving ways..."
Eggerichs helps couples restore their marriages by teaching wives how to recieve love by showing their husbands respect and showing husbands how to gain respect by giving their wives love.

Live Conference

During this two day live event, Dr. Eggerichs and his wife Sarah help explain three basic principles: 
The Crazy Cycle: Why two couples negatively react to one another.
The Energizing Cycle:  Why two couples negatively react to one another.
The Rewarded Cycle:  What a person can do if personal expectations are unmet by a spouse.
The Eggerichs speak all over the country.  Check here to see if they are coming to a city near you, your friends, or family!

Small Groups

The team at Love and Respect has created a small group discussion set.  The set includes DVDs of the Love and Respect Conference as well as individual workbooks and discussion questions.  
Small groups are an excellent way for couples to go over the material, grow deeper in their marriage, and meet together for mutual encouragement and support!  
Call your local church to see if they are offering a Love and Respect small group.  If they are not offering one, see if they'd be willing to start.
