PREPARE/ENRICH is a customized couple assessment completed online that identifies a couple's strength and growth areas. It is one of the most widely used programs for premarital counseling and premarital education. It is also used for marriage counseling, marriage enrichment, and dating couples considering engagement. Based on a couple's assessment results, a trained facilitator provides 4-8 feedback sessions in which the facilitator helps the couple discuss and understand their results as they are taught proven relationship skills.
More understanding and less arguing. Confidence and clarity to talk about sensitive topics. Insight on how to be each other's cheerleader and lover. Whether you are in year 0, 5, 10, 25 or more, the PREPARE/ENRICH assessment will help you visualize your relationship, put facts behind your feelings, and discover ways to open up doors for communication and intimacy. "When we took PREPARE/ENRICH, it was such a helpful resource for us to have as we navigated engaged life and really helped us prepare for marriage." -Kimberly
How do I know if I need Christian coaching? Deciding whether to seek coaching is usually a difficult decision. What is considered an inconvenience by one person could be a crisis to another. Different people tolerate levels of pain differently. But, there are times when coaching should always be considered. At times other than personal crises, whether or not to seek coaching is entirely a personal decision. Counseling involves both correction (trying to change what is not working) and enhancement (trying to improve what is already positive). Christian coaching provides a way for clients to restore their emotional, spiritual, and mental health. Christian Counselors have the experience, training, and objectivity to help the restoration process move faster than process adopted that are not professional help. If you are not satisfied with how you are managing your life, if the pain you are experiencing is too great, or if you feel stuck and do not know how to move forward, consider seeking professional help. In simple terms, coaching enables you to transform how you see yourself. The Bible says; without consultation plans are frustrated, But with many counselors they succeed (Proverbs 15:22). Are you, your marriage, or your family not looking so good right now?. Are you feeling stuck, alone, or hopeless? Talking to a Christian counselor can help.
