Strong Marriage

Growing a Strong Marriage
Starting Strong Vol. 1
Marriage is an important part in a Christian's relationships. God not only designed, but He blessed marriage. With all of the issues that are making marriage difficult in the world today, young couples needs to start with a strong foundation in marriage. The creators of this study guide have brought six couples together to discuss how they met, the building blocks they started with, and some of their advice and thoughts on marriage.

The videos were interesting. It was nice to have the different perspectives of all six couples talking about the same subject. The foundation of faith was presented throughout the video and the book had a focus on scripture and Biblical principles for marriage. The videos were long enough to share important information, but not so long that the viewer got bored. The accompanying study guide was well put together. The questions fit with the video and help the couples dig deeper into their marriage. There is a leader's guide in the back of the book with tips on how to be a more effective leader and possible ways to structure the group. As a small group leader, I enjoyed the videos and liked the layout. I would have preferred more questions, but the ones provided did initiate conversation in our group that kept the meeting going. Overall, I would recommend this for young couples who are considering marriage or for those of us who are already married, but would like a refresher course.

I received a free copy of this book/video to review. I was not required to write a positive review nor was I compensated in any other way. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the FTC Regulations. I am part of The CWA Review Crew.
