Marriage Preparation and Couple's Counseling

Did you know, the average person spends more time studying for their driver's license than preparing to get married? Marriage preparation is one way to improve your relationship and builds a foundation that all relationships can use to improve. The chaple offers the following services to help improve your relationship:

Prevention and Relationship Enhancement Program

Building Healthy Marriages! is based on PREP and the best-selling book “Fighting for Your Marriage”. This is a skill-based marriage enrichment and communication program designed to help make good marriages even better and to prepare engaged couples for a life-long happy marriage. And couples in need of a “tune-up” love this program. Couples who are having difficulties in their relationship also report great benefit from this outstanding seminar. (Couples in abusive relationships may not attend until treatment is completed.)

PREP occurs the last Wed and Thursday of every other month at no cost to the attendees. Contact the NASWI Chapel for more information.

Individual Counseling Sessions With A Chaplain

Although PREP is very successful, some couples desire individual sessions with a chaplain. Contact the NASWI Chapel to schedule an appointment.
