Ron & Nan Deal

A biblically-based, laugh and learn marriage enrichment for couples


This cutting-edge training event teaches couples:

  • How to operationalize the Biblical quality of humility in their every day lives.

  • To map their current painful relationship dance and replace it with one rooted in love that fosters peace and emotional safety.

  • How to transform their marital interactions from fear-based to grace-based.

Topics include:

  • What empowers us to love the way we want to love?
  • The pride/humility dynamic in marriage
  • The relationship between pain and behavior in marriage
  • How the Humility Shift fosters emotional safety
  • Fostering healthy sexuality in marriage.


The Empowered to Love Marriage ConferenceTM is designed to inspire, educate, and encourage couples in all seasons of life (pre-marriage, marriage, and blended family marriage) toward greater intimacy and stability.

"Ron & Nan Deal's seminar allowed my husband and I to get to heart level pains/fears, and gave us practical tracks to run on to humble ourselves and extend grace to each other.  their 4-part seminar was the BEST thing FamilyLife has ever offered.  Completely Scripturally supported and 100% getting to the bottom heart-level transformational place where the Holy Spirit can make us new and really move.."

-2022 Love Like You Mean It Cruise attendee

"Putting on humility in the moments of marriage, in our best moments and in our worst moments, and learning how to be in self-control when things trigger us gets to the heart of why a lot of things go bad...  It makes space for the Holy Spirit to really do the discipleship work in us that we're really striving for."
