Product Details

This workbook is designed to follow the DVD series Marriage 101: Back to the Basics featuring Dr. Gary and Barbara Rosberg and Dave Ramsey. The introduction to each session gives you a glimpse of what will be discussed in the video. Before starting the video, your leader or mentor/coaching couple may ask you to discuss the homework assignment from the previous session. You or the mentor will then begin the video and you will answer the fill-in-the-blank questions as you follow along. At the break point, you will have the opportunity to discuss the topics covered. The questions are designed to evaluate your impressions of the opening drama and will cover the content of the first half of the teaching. Take this opportunity to write down your responses. Your mentor will then ask you and your mate to discuss your responses and will answer any questions that may arise. After the break, you will watch the rest of the video, filling in the blanks during the video as before. At the conclusion of the second half of the teaching session, you will find some activities to be completed, as a couple, over the next week (or a time period you designate for your next session). You will also be offered some additional reading from The Marriage Kit. They can be used as supplemental tools to the Marriage 101 DVD series that reinforce the teaching of the series and lead you deeper into study. These will be an invaluable resource for you throughout your marriage. The conclusion of each session in the workbook provides assignments to be used with these supplemental tools.
