No marriage is perfect…but some have the right tools.

Need to take some time to focus on each other?  Looking to move the needle on your relationship?  Want to be intentional about investing in your marriage? No matter if you want to make a good marriage great or find help for a hurting relationship, a No More Perfect Marriages event is just what you need.

Taught by Mark and Jill Savage, No More Perfect Marriages events developed out of the Savage’s own marriage journey.  Self-described as being married 33 years, 25 of them happily, the Savage’s learned many lessons while turning around their hurting relationship. After that experience, they committed to share what they learned with other couples in any way they could. 

90% of couples indicated this was a complete game-changer for their marriage.

If you attend a No More Perfect Marriages event Mark and Jill will help you:

  • Move from frustration to fascination with your differences
  • Learn to give and receive love more intentionally
  • Practice creative communication tools
  • Evaluate your past and how it affects your present
  • Learn how to forgive and give grace
  • Identify the seven slow fades every marriage experiences
  • Discover the eight God-Tools needed to turn around those fades

Delivered in a relevant, honest, energetic, and often humorous manner, the design of this seminar encourages each married couple to apply what they’re learning to their marriage. Because of this, the Savage’s alternate teaching time with guided discussion time for the two of you to privately practice and process what you’re learning with each other. (Don’t worry….you don’t have to talk to anyone but your spouse!)

For the years I have known Mark and Jill Savage, I have watched them walk through major challenges with amazing grace--and have seen how God created something beautiful in and through them. Mark and Jill have learned lessons the hard way. Now their book—and seminars—are equipping us to build the marriage we’re longing for.

This seminar doesn’t feel like a lecture, but more like a friendship. Mark and Jill are fantastic teachers and the skills they teach have saved our marriage. The best part is that they do it in a fun and entertaining way.

This was life-changing. Due to childhood abuse I have always struggled with communication and identifying my feelings. This guided dialogue was absolutely revolutionary for us.

We are just past the honeymoon phase of marriage and have hit the season of struggling with prioritizing our marriage over our very dependent toddlers. We now have the tools to help us love as an action now that the “feeling” has somewhat faded.

Wow! The No More Perfect Marriages seminar was more than we could have ever imagined. We loved it all. Thank you for helping us step back and take a look at our marriage in a bigger way.

Thank you again for the wonderful spirit you and Mark brought to our church. Your authenticity spoke even louder than your words.  Here is what I heard right after the marriage event… “If it was for nobody else, it was for my husband and I. So many things have turned around… I see a hope in him that was not there before.""
