There are many Marriage Enrichment programs and classes throughout the year so we encourage you to visit www.usmarriage.org to find out what is currently happening. In addition, there are many Marriage Enrichment DVD Resources for Small Groups that can be utilized and is a wonderful resource for anyone to use. The facilitator inserts the DVD into the player and lets the trained professional on the DVD speak with authority, credibility, and experience to the small group. This allows the facilitator to join in on the questions and conversation with the rest of the group without having to feel like they need to know how to answer every question or issue that arises. These marriage enrichment DVDs are valuable for inspiring growth and insight into the heart of a married couple right where the individuals are. These DVDs can encourage couples to invest in their marriage without having to go too deep, before they are ready.
