No it’s not a devotional. While this does provide opportunities for you and your spouse to connect and and have meaningful discussions, this should be considered more of a tool designed to support, strengthen or heal your marriage in all of its ups and downs…especially the downs.
Absolutely! We encourage it. Marriage small groups are a valuable resource for accountability, support and understanding. When this book, “Covered” is practiced in an environment dedicated to Coverings, the entire group is impacted in a powerful way. No one finishes without being changed.
Of course you can, but we don’t usually recommend it. “Covered” is a book designed to open the eyes of couples and change their minds about themselves, their spouse, and their marriage. This book changes YOU. If this is not shared with your spouse, you run the risk of being the only one changed in your marriage. While that may help to a degree, it will not provide for a complete transformation for the whole marriage, because that takes both participants.
We are asked this A LOT, and we greatly appreciate the consideration. In the past we offered couple’s counseling. What we’ve found is that normal couples coaching/counseling often take 6 to 8 weeks of sessions. When couples come to us for help, they need it IMMEDIATELY. To answer that need, we are currently developing what we call Marriage Accelerators. These are 6-8 sessions, compressed into two or three days, within an intimate group setting. Continue to follow us, so that you’ll know when a 4 Pillars Marriage Accelerator comes near you.
Whether it be mental, emotional or physical, abuse is a very serious infraction upon your covenant. We encourage safety first, especially in cases of physical abuse. visit “thehotline,org/help/” or Call:1-800-799-7233 or 1-800-787-3224(TTY)
