    Take a deep breath! Food, family and friction have become a holiday tradition for too many couples- it can be caused from the strain of trying to "stay in budget," or figuring out how to fit in all the family functions, or maybe it's from our own unmet holiday expectations. All of it can take a toll on your marriage- but don't let it.


    This year can be different!Give each other the gift of peace, harmony and teamwork! The two of you can join forces and join hands and you commit to enjoy the season with each other, no matter what's going on around you. Let MMJ's Shelby Raines show you how to let go of expectations and hold on to each other. Enjoy a hopeful and helpful 45-minute presentation followed by time for questions and answers.


    Come and laugh and learn together- we'll show you how to make your marriage stronger and find time to sneak a kiss under the mistletoe! Together, you can find the joy the holidays were meant to bring.


    Each couple will receive a goody bag and take away information and have the chance to register for some great giveaways.

    Let's talk about sex, baby! Now that we've got your attention, let MMJ show you how to make the time, spice up your routine, and find ways to get each other "in the mood." Join us for one of the most fun- and one of the most sensitive- topics in marriage.


    Enjoying intimate moments together is an important part of building a healthy marriage, but things like bills, careers, kids, and other obligations can move your love life to the bottom of the list.


    MMJ's Shelby Raines will host Maria Current, Jackson's only licensed marriage and family therapist specializing in sex therapy. This casual and upbeat presentation will cover some of the common misconceptions and questions surrounding sex that married couples face. It will also provide tips to help you grow closer.


    Please note: some of the conversation may be a bit blush worthy, but the lights will be low, so you wont be embarrassed!


    Each couple will receive a goody bag and take away information and have the chance to register for some great giveaways. A cash bar is also available.
