Seminar introduces ‘Love and Respect’ to couples

Weekend workshops teach couples better communication through love and respect

Gunnar Zimmer is on a mission to help men and women put an end to their misunderstanding of each other.

Zimmer is facilitator of the Love and Respect seminar, a behavioral modification teaching program taking place over the next two weekends at Pleasant Valley Church of God, 6161 Pleasant Valley Rd. in Vernon.

“This seminar can and will repair your relationships and assist in understanding the opposite sex whether in a marriage or just a friendship,” said  Zimmer. “And it works — when you apply the seminar principles.”

Love and Respect was developed by Dr. Emerson Eggerichs,  an internationally known public speaker on the topic of male-female relationships. Based on more than three decades of counseling as well as scientific and biblical research, Eggerichs and his wife Sarah developed the Love and Respect Conference which they present to live audiences around the country. Eggerichs has written several books, including the bestseller, Love and Respect.

The seminar runs Friday from 6:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m., Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Sunday from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m.; Sept. 28, 29 and 30, same hours. The cost of the program is $65 per person, which covers the materials used. For more information, or to reserve your spot, please call Zimmer at 250-547-2281.
