What is the Four Gifts of Love® Class?

It’s a FOUNDATION for helping couples create and sustain a lifestyle that results in ROMANTIC LOVE in marriage and PASSION for God.

Why TWO relationships?

Because we believe these two relationships IMPACT a person’s life the most!

Why ROMANTIC LOVE and PASSION?

Passion and romantic love is something we can create…it’s not a mystery; it's about a lifestyle.

It’s a symptom of:

  • A compatible and thoughtful relationship
  • Creating a life of care, protection, honesty, and time: the Four Gifts of Love®

And when couples have this feeling, it’s easier to care, protect, be honest, and give time.

*Please note:

  1. For all the options, your full willingness and ability to care, protect, be honest, and give time is NEEDed. This Class is marriage education and intended to help you learn and develop skills to create a Four Gifts of Love® lifestyle. It is not therapy or a replacement for therapy; thus, if you are currently experiencing untreated issues involving abuse, addiction, marital infidelity, and/or mental health, we respectfully and thoughtfully recommend that you first seek professional help to treat those issues as this course necessitates the full capacities of a husband and wife to care, protect, be honest, and give time to each other.
  2. The concepts and marriage philosophy used in this Class were originated by Dr. Willard F. Harley, Jr., and have been used by millions across the world for nearly half a century. Our empirical research and anecdotal experience suggest that this Class is an effective marriage education for heterosexual couples. The Class does not have efficacy data for use with couples beyond the bounds of our research, competency, and experience.
  3. If you do not adhere to the beliefs presented in the faith-based material, with a Christ-centered orientation, those assignments may be skipped and you can complete the assignments related only to your marriage relationship.
