PROGRAM CONTENTS
Thank you for registering for Marriage for Life!  In Session #1, we will review the following profiles, so please complete EACH profile and be ready to discuss together during session #1.  This will kick off the study by really getting to understand how God has wired each of you!

PREPARATION PROFILES

This is a great exercise to get to know each other's natural strengths and weaknesses. We often time try to work so hard on our weaknesses instead of fostering our natural strengths and miss God's calling in our life. After you do the testing, print them out, and you will read them aloud to one another during the first session. Study each other so you know it well and then start encouraging each other in that strength zone, while better understanding each other’s weaknesses!
