Marriage Mentoring

This is an opportunity for a one-on-one mentorship with another couple. During this time, you will study the His Needs, Her Needs material to learn practical and applicable tools for a healthy marriage.

In the classic bestseller His Needs, Her Needs, Willard F. Harley, Jr., identifies the ten most vital needs of men and women and shows husbands and wives how to satisfy those needs in their spouses. He provides guidance for becoming irresistible to your spouse and for loving more creatively and sensitively, thereby eliminating the problems that often lead to extramarital affairs.
