 Marriage: Living the Promise The Early Years (Coming Soon)​​

What is it?
Newlyweds in their first five years are in a challenging but exciting time. They are building the foundation for their entire lives as they begin their family. Gaining an increased understanding of themselves and each other and how God is a part of their marriage, will help to cement their foundation and solidify their marriage for their lifetime. 
Marriage: Living the Promise The First Five Years Program is a program designed to help newly married couples adjust to their new lives together. We go to school for 12, 16, sometimes 20 or more years to hone our skills and profession, so why don’t we invest in our relationships that are meant to last a lifetime?
Marriage: Living the Promise The First Five Years will allow spouses to look back at their lives since childhood in order to gain a much better understanding on how they and their spouses approach life. Spouses will learn how to apply tools and techniques to continue growing in their lives and grow in love for each other.
