The material in 5 Days to a New Marriage comes directly from "marriage intensives"—small group therapy sessions in which the authors lead several couples through life-changing marital transformations. Because the process began in small groups, this transformation is best experienced in a group setting.
Our Small Group Kit is designed to take five couples (one leader couple and four participants) through an eight-week course.
In each kit, you"ll find:
- 10 participant books (two per couple): Written by marriage experts and therapists Dr. Terry Hargrave and Dr. Shawn Stoever, 5 Days to a New Marriage guides couples through real and lasting change in their marriage.
- 2 teaching DVDs (four sessions per DVD): Authors Dr. Terry Hargrave and Dr. Shawn Stover lead four couples through an actual group experience to mirror the teachings in the book.
- Leader's guide: Written by marriage and family therapist Sharon Hargrave and featuring step-by-step instructions to guide participants through the material.
- Group leader training DVD: In-depth training for leaders, in which Sharon Hargrave guides an actual couple through the material while anticipating common problems to work through.
This Kit Includes
Can a marriage really change in five days? According to marriage experts and therapists Dr. Terry Hargrave and Dr. Shawn Stoever, the answer is YES.
Whether your marriage needs to be rescued from desperate trouble or simply could improve from good to great, change is possible. The authors share how almost every marital conflict comes from the same place: a pattern of emotional pain buried deep within every husband and wife. When couples recognize this cycle, then learn to replace it with more marriage-affirming patterns, the results are breathtaking.
Tired, predictable arguments transform into life-giving interactions. Relationships are changed forever. The authors draw from broad counseling experiences, current mindfulness studies, and recent advances in brain research—along with case examples, practical exercises, and scriptural lessons—to refresh and heal even the most problematic marriages. A better marriage is possible. A lifetime of joy is just five days away.
