Item description for Preparing for Marriage: The Complete Guide to Help You Discover God's Plan for a Lifetime of Love: Leader's Guide by David Boehi, Lloyd Shadrach & Jeff Schulte...
Overview Married couples begin life together with a vow to make their relationship last a lifetime. But an unwary couple who follows our modern culture's standard for relationships will end up in a marriage far different from the one they envisioned when they said, "I do."
Today, more than ever, it is vital that engaged couples prepare for the important, lifelong task of building a Christian marriage. Created by FamilyLife, one of America's leading marriage ministries, Preparing for Marriage is a dynamic, comprehensive premarital education program designed to lay the foundation for strong, biblical marriages.

Pastors & Church Leaders: Great Premarital Resource! Feb 17, 2010
We use this book at Healing Place Church (Baton Rouge, LA) for over 4 years and it has gotten great reviews and responses. We reviewed 6-7 curriculums for premarital preparation and "Preparing For Marriage" stood out far above most other programs.
The content a wise balance of scripture and practical application. The organization and presentation of the process is great. It allows the couples to get an early start on communication of key issues of a healthy, Christ centered marriage. The process of a couple going through this book together along with a mature Jesus loving mentor couple is invaluable.
The Leader's Guide is an excellent resource. It gives Leader's many options to use the text whether one on one mentoring or a group environment for a class environment. It also prepares the Leaders to facilitate an individual counseling session or facilitate a class.
We've enjoyed sharing this information with engaged couples and look forward to seeing the fruit this Godly resource will bear.
Leader's Guide: Preparing for Marriage Jan 25, 2010
My fiance and I purchased the original book from a bookstore, and then found out about the leader's guide. The leader's guide was not available in the bookstore. this site offered this book for a great price and in excellent condition. We ordered it for our pastor, and he has had great things to say about the book.
Good premarital material Jul 10, 2009
I am using this course to counsel an engaged couple. The Leader's guide is not super easy to follow, but the student workbook and the course itself is good. Not much prep required by the leader/counselor.
Great for your marriage. Feb 18, 2009
There is a leaders guide and a learning book. Get the one that does not say leaders guide. It is great for premarital talks and growing intimacy if you are taking a premarital class to accompany the book. It has worked wonders for us.
A Great Resource for Premarrieds Feb 16, 2009
This is the best premarried curriculum that I have seen thus far. It offers the much needed God's design for marriage in addition to practical helps. Most offer only one or the other, this meets in the middle for what is need from both.
