THE ART OF MARRIAGE
Why Faith-Based Couple's Counseling?
Marriage, the way God intended it to be, is a true art form.
What is The Art of Marriage?
The Art of Marriage® is a six-session video event that weaves together expert teaching, real-life stories, humorous vignettes, and more to portray both the challenges and the beauty of God’s design. The six engaging video sessions are interspersed with projects for couples to complete to reinforce lessons. The video sessions cover the following topics:
Session 1: Love Happens (Purpose of Marriage)
The primary purpose of marriage is to reflect God’s glory to a watching world. It is important to receive your mate as God’s perfect gift for you.
Session 2: Love Fades (Drift to Isolation)
Couples naturally drift toward isolation. Our differences and weaknesses push us apart. Sin has affected every marriage. Couples must learn to walk by the power of God in marriage.
Session 3: Love Dances (Roles)
God designed different responsibilities for men and women in marriage.
Though their responsibilities are different, men and women are still equal in value.
God calls men to sacrificially love and lead their wives. God calls women to respect and support their husbands.
Session 4: Love Interrupted (Communication)
Conflict is common to all marriages. The goal is not to be conflict-free but to learn to handle conflict correctly when it occurs. Healthy conflict resolution occurs when couples are willing to seek and grant forgiveness.
Session 5: Love Sizzles (Romance and Sex)
God created sex and has a wonderful design in mind. A satisfying sex life is the result of a satisfying marriage relationship.
Session 6: Love Always (Legacy)
To leave a godly legacy, we must think about the impact of our lives on future generations. Leaving a godly legacy requires putting a stake in the ground.
