Love and Respect conference put on by methodist church

SPRINGVILLE — One key word can revolutionize any marriage, according to Dr. Emerson Eggerichs, author of the book “Love & Respect.” Eggerichs says happiness and harmony are not achieved by love alone.

“The major problem which I heard from wives was ‘He doesn’t love me.’ Wives are made to love, want to love, expect love. Many husbands fail to deliver. But, as I kept studying scripture and counseling couples, I finally saw the other half of the equation. Husbands weren’t saying it much, but what they were thinking was, ‘She doesn’t respect me.’”

“Love & Respect” is divided into three main sections:

– The Crazy Cycle explains the simple reason why two good-willed people negatively react to each other.

– The Energizing Cycle explains how two people can positively motivate one another.

– The Rewarded Cycle unveils the rewards of a godly marriage and explains what a person can do if personal expectations are unmet by a spouse.

Eggerichs launched the Love and Respect Conferences in 1999.

The First United Methodist Church of Springville will be hosting the Love & Respect video conference on Feb. 7-8. Registration begins at 6 p.m. Jan. 31. The sessions run from 6:45 a.m.-10:15 a.m. on Friday and 8:45 a.m.-1:45 p.m. on Saturday.

This conference is available to anyone who is currently married, has been married or is thinking of getting married. There is a fee, per person. To register, visit, or email
