More than Friends: Leader Purchase
More Than Friends is a pre-marriage resource that celebrates diversity even as it seeks to prepare couples for the blessings and challenges of long term marriage. It is a resource that can be used online or in face-to-face gatherings, with individuals or groups, and can easily be guided by clergy or lay leaders, or even self-guided.
Here are the themes of the seven videos.
- Marriage is Daily. It is small daily practices that make a marriage that lasts.
- Communications & Family of Origin – Learning skills for healthy arguments and how Families of Origins influence how we communicate and more!
- Sexuality. Sexuality is a gift, a dilemma sometimes, and binds a couple together.
- Money. Money shows what you believe and what you value. It is hard to talk about and can be a major stress in a marriage.
- Spirituality. Spirituality is “God” and not just God; taking care of each other’s spirit and the well-being of your marriage.
- Later in Life Marriage & Blended Families. Heather Hemming and Ross Bartlett speak of their own experience and offer thoughtful and practical guidance.
- Hosts Linda Yates and Neil McEwen return to host a video on Same Gender Marriage. Neil speaks from the experience of his wedding and marriage and Linda as a mother of a same gendered son. Both have presided at same gender weddings.
