Over half of the engaged couples who take my marriage preparation course have a lot of apprehension. Maybe that is due, in part, to the fact that many think of it as “pre-marital counseling” instead of education and coaching. Adam described his experience of not being so sure:
Dear Rev. Frank, the wedding counseling experience has been very enjoyable. We were a little apprehensive at first, however, I think that the counseling exceeded our expectations. It allowed us to talk through areas that we had discussed previously, but we gained new perspectives. Thanks.

It has helped me to be a better person for myself and for Adam. It has helped our lines of communication with each other which I know will carry over into our marriage. Now I feel much more prepared and closer to Adam than before! Thank you!
After more working with over 200 couples in the past 4 years, I don’t ever hesitate to tell them that I’m sure they will enjoy it and find it to be a very valuable experience. That’s because, all 200 plus couples (in their own words) have enjoyed it and found it to be a very valuable experience. You will too!
