Where to start? What do we do?
First off, thanks so much for joining Grace for Marriage. The courses and how you should use them are described below, but if you have any questions feel free to send us an email.
Below you will see the current courses that are available. You and your spouse should start with one course, and complete it before moving on to the next. If you’re unsure of which course to start with, we recommend completing them in the order listed below.
Each course has between 5 and 6 sessions, with each session ranging from about 55-90 minutes. As a couple, to get the most out of each program, the two of you should agree that once a month, you’re going to set aside time to watch one session. Each course comes with a downloadable workbook. We highly recommend, you follow along in the workbook and fill them out right then and there as you are watching each session.
Then, the two of you should practice what you learned in that session and what you wrote down in the workbook for the next month. Use these strategies and techniques on a weekly date night, while out for a walk, or while you’re out for dinner. Doing it this way will help slow things down, and let what you’ve learned really sink in. Pastor Hunter calls this “Soak time.” It gives you, as a couple, a chance to practice with it, get comfortable with it, and have some fun at the same time.
Then the next month, watch the next session of the program and repeat, practicing what you’ve learned for another month.
After 5 months you’ll have your first program completed. You can speed up your lessons, redo past lessons, or skip to any lesson you prefer. They are in no particular order.
Whenever you plan on doing the next program, just kick in the same exact process you did for your first program. Watch one session per month, and discuss the things you learned and how you’ll put those things into practice.
