Mike and Lee Ann Hartwig have worked with marriages for over 25 years. As the leader of Marriage Matters® they have trained hundreds of couples to help struggling couples put into practice principles of a strong marriage. “The Power of Intimacy” will teach many of those same principles.

Mike is currently a Financial Coach helping couples figure out how protect, grow and preserve their resources for future generations. Did you know the number one reason why couples fight is over money? “If you can figure out how to handle your money as a couple then you are well on your way to having a strong marriage,” says Hartwig.

Lee Ann has taught kindergarteners for the last 25 years for Des Moines Public Schools. She helps wives understand what it takes to have a healthy, happy marriage.

“The Power of Intimacy” is not your typical “psycho-babble” workshop. “This will be a practical, sensical, funny and engaging, Biblical event where you will learn a lot about yourself and about your mate,” says Hartwig. “We will cover topics like ‘As a husband/wife, what am I supposed to do?’ and ‘How to honor God through the physical side of marriage,” and “How to turn an argument into a meaningful, productive conversation.’”

Mike and Lee Ann were awarded the “Iowa Parents of the Year” over the objections of their three grown kids. Mike and Lee Ann have six grandkids and two they hope will be adopted by the end of the end of the year. Mike and Lee Ann have been happily married 38 years.
