Are You Ready for a Marriage Tune-Up?
We’re all aware that our car needs a tune-up, mechanical repairs and other attention from time to time. However, we may not be thinking that our relationships require preparation, attention and, at times, a tune-up or repair.
The Prepare-Enrich assessment is for seriously dating, engaged, and married couples who want to improve their relationship, expose potential relational landmines and prepare for a lifelong satisfying and enjoyable marriage
We will plan to start meeting at 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday evenings in January. There will be an introduction and questions session on January 11th and our first group gathering on January 18th. Childcare will be provided and a family meal will be available from 5 to 6:30 p.m. for a modest price. Groups will be held on other evenings in the future. Each Prepare-Enrich group will be limited to 3 to 4 couples. There will be a cost of $30 per couple for the online assessment and $12 for the recommended book. We will ask couples to read a chapter a week. Our ten-week schedule will discuss the following topics:
1 The Meaning of Marriage
2. Sharing Strength & Growth Areas
3. SCOPE Personality Assessment
4. Personal Stress Profile
5. Communication: Assertiveness & Active Listening
6. Conflict Resolution
