A wedding lasts only a day, marriage is for a lifetime…
With this in mind we at Heart of Sedona Weddings wish to offer you our new marriage prep sessions in person and by Skype as a way to help stimulate clear, open and conscious communication around key areas of marital life.
The areas are:
- Interest and Activities
- Role Expectations
- Personal Adjustment
- Interpersonal Communications
- Faith and Philosophy
- Marriage Expectations
- Family Issues
Given the fact that we live in a society centered on speed, activity and technological acumen it’s quite easy to overlook our need for thoughtful communication on these topics, all of which are important in marriage. Or we may be uncertain as to how to go about discussing them or even what topics we should be discussing.
What we’re offering through this service is:
- a comprehensive exploration of where each of you as future marital partners stand on the above topics
- identification and discussion of those areas where you’re in supportive agreement and those areas where you’re being called to dialogue and grow towards greater agreement
- creating a stronger foundation for marriage.
Beginning with a Premarital Inventory… one designed for those marrying for the first time and one for those remarrying and who may have children… we first identify your beliefs, feelings and experiences relating to the above areas to see to what degree you agree, disagree or are uncertain.
Rev. Andrew Murphy then guides you through a series of 4 to 6 sessions designed to open dialogue, encourage transparency around the issues at hand, and explore creative and satisfying ways of expression. With honesty, clarity and a sensitive regard for each others needs and feelings you’ll notice shifts beginning to occur, bringing about naturally any needed changes and reinforcing and deepening the sense of oneness and love that unites you. Nothing will help to nourish, deepen and solidify your relationship as much as sincere, heartfelt, open communication!
