Here is What We Will Cover:

What is Christian Marriage: Seeking Holiness before Happiness

We delve into the foundational principles of a Christian marriage, exploring the biblical perspective on this sacred union. We'll discuss the importance of seeking holiness and aligning your relationship with God's design for marriage, while also challenging the notion that personal fulfillment should be the primary goal. Instead, we'll emphasize the importance of pursuing a life of godliness, allowing true happiness to flow from a right relationship with God and each other.

Through interactive exercises and discussions, you'll gain a deeper understanding of the spiritual dimensions of your your partnership and how to cultivate a Christ-centered marriage.

Communication: Cooperation and How to have a productive fight

Effective communication is the lifeblood of any successful marriage. In this section, we'll delve into the art of active listening, empathy, and expressing yourself in a constructive manner, while also exploring the concept of "productive discussion" – an approach that recognizes the inevitability of disagreements in any relationship.

You'll learn practical techniques for navigating difficult conversations, resolving conflicts, fostering an environment of mutual understanding and respect, and transforming conflicts into opportunities for growth, ultimately strengthening your bond as a couple.

Budgeting: Being intentional about your spending

Financial matters are often a source of stress and conflict in many marriages. In this section, we'll provide you with practical tools and strategies for managing your finances as a couple, including setting shared financial goals, creating a budget, and being intentional about your spending habits.

Additionally, we'll explore the deeper emotional and psychological aspects of money management, addressing topics such as financial values, communication around money, and overcoming financial challenges together, fostering open and honest discussions to develop a shared understanding and a unified approach to managing your resources, reducing potential conflicts and paving the way for a more harmonious financial partnership.

An Emotional and Spiritual Relationship: What are your roles

We explore the emotional and spiritual dimensions of a marriage relationship, discussing the importance of nurturing not only the physical aspects but also the emotional and spiritual connections that bind you together.

Through interactive exercises and discussions, you'll gain insights into understanding each other's emotional needs, love languages, and spiritual values, as well as delve into the roles and responsibilities each partner plays in cultivating a deep, meaningful, and fulfilling emotional and spiritual relationship, providing guidance on supporting and uplifting each other, fostering open and vulnerable communication, and creating a safe space for emotional and spiritual growth within your marriage.

The Role of Sex in Marriage: Sex is more than physical

We explore the multifaceted nature of intimacy within a marriage, emphasizing that sex is more than just a physical act, and discussing the emotional, psychological, and spiritual dimensions of intimacy and how they contribute to a deeper, more fulfilling connection between partners.

Through open and respectful discussions, we'll provide guidance on navigating the complexities of intimacy, addressing common challenges, fostering a healthy and satisfying sexual relationship, and exploring the biblical perspective on intimacy, emphasizing the sacredness and beauty of this aspect of marriage.

Questions and Answers: You ask, I Answer

We open the floor for couples to ask any remaining questions or address any concerns they may have, creating a safe and judgment-free environment where you can freely express your thoughts and seek clarification on any topic related to marriage and relationships.

Whether you have questions about communication strategies, conflict resolution techniques, or any other aspect covered in the class, we'll provide thoughtful and practical insights tailored to your specific needs, ensuring you leave feeling confident and well-equipped for a successful and fulfilling marriage.
