‘Hidden Keys to Loving Relationships’ to be free seminar at Grace Episcopal

CULLMAN — “Hidden Keys to Loving Relationships”, a program designed for young couples of all ages to help strengthen and bless marriages, will be offered from 9:15 to 10 a.m. Sunday, Jan. 6, at Grace Episcopal Church in the Arnold House, 305 Arnold Street, Cullman 35055.

This free program will feature a series of videos presented by Gary Smalley, a relationship specialist with discussions led by Rev. Bob Blackwell, priest at Grace Episcopal, and his wife, Kay.

Smalley, a lifelong Baptist, is founder of the Smalley Relationship Center and author of numerous family relationship books.

The video for the first session will be Tape No. 1, “The Single Most Important Ingredient in Building a Loving Relationship”. In this session, attendees will learn the single most important element of any relationship and how to incorporate it into personal relationships.

Blackwell said this series and guided discussion will be a great opportunity for anyone who wants to develop a stronger Christian-based marriage. “Gary Smalley’s ‘Hidden Keys to Loving Relationships’ video series will give you more insights and a greater understanding about the keys to building close and intimate relationships than any book you have ever read,” Blackwell said.

Blackwell went on to say others have reported “Men and women from every walk of life have given rave reviews about Smalley’s entertaining style, his life-changing insights, and his ability to convert truth and insight into practical, easy-to-apply steps of action that can be incorporated into any relationship.

“We invite any couple interested in building a stronger, Christian-based marriage to join us,” Blackwell said.
