You are not alone

17 Apr

So a few months ago Andrew and I started leading a “pre-married” small group here at Sandals.  5 engaged couples (one of which is now married) attended for 12 weeks.  We talked about communication, finances, spiritual, physical, and emotional intimacy, etc. etc.   We loved it!!!  Out of any ministry that Andrew and I can do together, I feel like this is what God has called us to.  Plus we were blessed with a group of awesome people.

After 12 weeks of meeting we officially called it quits (you can’t be a pre-married group forever.  Eventually they all get married).  But not meeting just didn’t fit.  We thought we would start a new one, but it hasn’t happened yet.  So we had a reunion tonight.  It is amazing to get into a room of people and be supported and encouraged in knowing that you aren’t the only couple who has issues!!!  I think the biggest thing that the couples learned in our small group is that they are NOT ALONE!! What a concept.

Community.  Love it.

    Becca – “How he loves us” on Youtube was inspiring, done with such passion – it’s gone – why? – can I find it elsewhere?

    Hi!
    My name is Lauren and my fiance and I attend Sandals. We are getting married this month:) We wanted to attend premarital counseling but with my crazy school schedule and my fiance’s work schedule we were unable to. I came across your blog and read that you just completed a pre-married small group. I was wondering if you were going to start another small group??? Maybe a newly wed small group?? Let me know…

    Thanks,
    Lauren
