    Explore the results of the Uniquely United personality assessment in an effort to value the unique way God has created each individual, and how a person’s personality impacts the way they approach their relationships.
  2. Covenant Commitment:
    Understand God’s design for marriage and what that means for husband and wife. How do thoughts drive actions? What can couples do to remain committed to their marriage?
  3. Roles and Responsibilities:
    Avoid unmet expectations and unrealistic entitlements by discussing roles and responsibilities through Biblical lenses. Discover what the Bible has to say about the roles of husband and wife. Understand how your God-given personality equips you best to handle various responsibilities within your marriage.
  4. Communication:
    Unpack more of the Uniquely United personality assessment in order to fully understand your future spouse’s keys and barriers to communication. How can you communicate with your partner in a God-honoring way with understanding of how their personality impacts the way they hear and speak.
  5. Conflict Resolution and Forgiveness:
    How does your ability to forgive impact your ability to resolve conflict? We tend to look at conflict as a negative interaction, but what if you were to see conflict as a way to grow together through mutual resolution? Learn healthy ways to approach and resolve conflict.
  6. Wise Stewards:
    A Biblical look at Finances and Sexuality: The world has twisted two of God’s greatest blessings. Reclaim a Biblical view of stewardship, understanding God’s true design for our finances and sexual relationship. Uncover past experiences and patterns that may prevent you from honoring God in these areas.
