Pulling off a successful wedding is one thing but fortifying a lifelong relationship is an entirely different endeavor.

Organized in nine highly relevant sessions, each centered on key biblical and relational touchstones, Burns and Fields equip participants to confront big issues including communication, finances, spirituality, and intimacy—prior to their wedding day.
Great as a stand-alone resource or partnered with the Getting Ready for Marriage: A Practical Road Map for Your Journey Together book and companion video package.
Jim Burns and Doug Fields, two highly respected relationship experts, channel decades of frontline marriage study into an actionable premarital workbook for couples and those seeking to support them.
Drawing on Deuteronomy 6, Pass It On offers parents ways to “impress their faith” on the next generation through annual Rite of Passages that are practical, memorable, and experiential.
Parents often experience a “freak out” moment when they realize their children’s view of God will primarily come from what they learn at home. Most parents spend more time helping their kids succeed at academics or athletics than infusing shared spiritual experiences into the rhythm of everyday family life.
While the idea of strategically passing down our faith can seem intimidating, the annual Rites of Passage Experiences contained in Pass It On make it easy for your family to celebrate milestones from kindergarten through high school graduation. Forever change the direction of your family’s spiritual legacy ... starting now!
