    *examine their family backgrounds
    *determine guidelines for their own marriage

    Addendum: Marrying Again — A Time For Reflection

    Additional Info
    While it’s true that marriage can be a great adventure, it is also true that a successful marriage takes hard work, honest communication, and faith.

    Before entering into the marriage covenant, couples should consider the finer details of their relationship: How does Christ fit into the relationship? How will finances be handled? How should a husband love his wife, and how should a wife love her husband?

    Those questions and many more like them are asked in Mentoring for Marriage, a seven-session study designed for engaged couples seeking pre-marital guidance and challenge. Believing that no study can exhaustively cover the topic of marriage, Daryl G. Donovan has created a resource that fosters critical discussion and thought among engaged couples who have sought out the careful mentorship of a pastor, counselor, or married couple.

    Firm in his conviction that every marriage must be sustained through Christ, Donovan provides plenty of space for a couple to work through individual differences and uncertainties. Mentoring for Marriage is an excellent resource for pastors, counselors, engaged couples, married couples, and mentors. This resource enables a reliance upon wisdom and encourages open and honest discourse for any couple wanting a God’s-eye view of marriage before they say I do.

  • Preparing Couples For Love And Marriage

    $19.99

    Good preparation enables couples to take a first step together in facing their future challenges. While no one can smooth away all the rough spots in the marital road ahead, couples can be coached to pay attention to warning signs, see the bumps before they hit them, and deal more skillfully with inevitable conflicts. This book provides pastors with a framework and tools for this ministry. The good news is that you don’t need any formal background in counseling, because the kind of work we’re talking about isn’t counseling-it’s coaching-a coach who can help couples to respond positively to the differences between them. It’s not about having the answers; but is it about helping couples manage difficulties before they become serious threats to the marriage.

  • For This Reason Gods Word And Your Marriage

    $12.95

    Jesus tells us that a holy love is sacrificial, forgiving, and unconditional. He knew that loving like this would not be easy, but he did promise us that if we pursued his love, our hearts, our minds, and our spirits would be transformed. This is the essence of relationship: a love that changes everything.

    It should come as no surprise, then, that when we enter into a marriage covenant, our greatest commandment is to love one another. But how do we put that love into action when life gets tough? How do we remember to sacrifice for one another when the outside world demands everything we’ve got? According to Gary Fehring, it always comes down to Jesus.

    In just nine short devotionals, For This Reason challenges new and experienced marriages with holy scripture, reminding couples that a marriage centered on godly principles always strives for contentment, surrender, sacrifice, forgiveness, and humility. Author Gary Fehring’s poignant questions at the end of each devotional have been carefully crafted to expose the fears and dreams of each reader, and he always points back to prayer as a way to navigate our way through the paths of life. For This Reason is a Jesus-centered devotional with a timeless simplicity and relevance that will consistently encourage and challenge couples throughout any phase in their marriages.

  • Making A Success Of Marriage

    $39.00

    In a crowded field of marriage self-helps, author and pastoral counselor Yount (America’s Spiritual Utopias) crafts a fresh entry full of excellent insights, as well as above-average inspirational quotes from luminaries like John Donne and Tolstoy. Yount covers all the bases in one volume, from the decision to marry to the decision to divorce, but always emphasizing the importance of taking marriage vows seriously to keep a marriage strong, or at least sustained, through complicated situations such as troubled children or long-term illness. Though his approach doesn’t present a new set of solutions, Yount’s text is full of vivid examples that demonstrate his ideas working in real marriages. Sticking close to the topic of wedded bliss (rather than, say, salvation), Yount keeps his Christian perspective on marriage apparent but far from overwhelming; a useful 101-question compatibility test offers a serious inventory of issues that every couple should consider for their long-term health.

  • Como Me Preparo Para Amar

    $3.50

    The grim wreckage of failed marriages is all too common in today’s culture. Marriages fail because people fail. Marriages often fail because people have not been prepared for either courtship or marriage. The foundation of an enduring marriage is Christian character. An attraction for someone of the opposite gender doesn’t make anyone ready for courtship. Neither are people qualified simply because they seriously want the right one. First, one must be the right kind of person. Looking at Myself Before Loving Someone Else is not a courtship manual. It was written to help youth prepare for courtship-to help them understand their strong, sometimes confusing, feelings toward the opposite sex. It challenges them to develop personal, godly character before courtship, before seeking a life companion. This workbook for youth and parents will help prepare young people for courtship and lifelong, joyful marriages that glorify God.

    Como me preparo para amar? fue escrito con el fin de preparar a los jovenes antes de comenzar un noviazgo; para ayudarles a comprender la necesidad de ser la persona ideal en vez de encontrar a la persona ideal. Les incentiva a desarrollar los atributos de Cristo en su vida personal antes de buscar una esposa o un esposo.

    Este estudio estimulara el desarrollo de noviazgos que produzcan matrimonios duraderos que glorifican a Dios.

  • Before We Say I Do

    $15.99

    Getting married is one of the easiest things in the world to do. It requires a license, a ring, and two witnesses. But staying married for the rest of their lives is one of the greatest challenges that couples will ever undertake. Marvin McMickle has provided a seven-step resource for premarital counseling that couples can use with or without the involvement of a clergy member or counselor. Developed over a thirty-year career in pastoral ministry, this book is based upon the premise that a healthy marriage is the result of what happens before a couple says, I do. By focusing on seven concepts–faith, friendship, frankness, forgiveness, fidelity, finance, and family–couples will discover the tools they need to build a strong and lasting marriage in the twenty-first century. This book is an invaluable resource for both couples and premarital counselors. Questions are provided at the end of each chapter for serious reflection.

  • Looking At Myself Before Loving Someone Else (Workbook)

    $3.50

    The grim wreckage of failed marriages is all too common in today’s culture. Marriages fail because people fail. Marriages often fail because people have not been prepared for either courtship or marriage. The foundation of an enduring marriage is Christian character. An attraction for someone of the opposite gender doesn’t make anyone ready for courtship. Neither are people qualified simply because they seriously want the right one. First, one must be the right kind of person. Looking at Myself Before Loving Someone Else is not a courtship manual. It was written to help youth prepare for courtship-to help them understand their strong, sometimes confusing, feelings toward the opposite sex. It challenges them to develop personal, godly character before courtship, before seeking a life companion. This workbook for youth and parents will help prepare young people for courtship and lifelong, joyful marriages that glorify God.

He highlights a Catholic approach to premarital relationships, to marriage, to divorce, and to remarriage. He examines the relationship of marriage and sacrament, faith and sacrament, friendship in marriage, divorce and remarriage, cohabitation, family, interchurch marriages, and the changing models of marriage in the Catholic tradition. The whole offers a fresh look at the Catholic theology of marriage for a new millennium.
