"A very valuable resource for both pastors preparing couples for marriage and individuals desiring a solid foundation on which to build their married lives. Based on biblical principles and containing interactive questions this manual covers critical topics such as: expectations, communication, conflict, forgiveness, intimacy and others, which are illustrated by an appropriate and gentle use of humour with which all couples will identify. I highly recommend this valuable resource."
- Dr. Gus Konkel, Ph.D., President, Providence College & Seminary, Otterburne, Manitoba

“Everyone wants an amazing love relationship.  Getting there through a great marriage takes commitment, patience, sacrifice, a lot of support, and a solid spiritual foundation.  I recommend The Couple Care Marriage Preparation Manual as a resource for pastors and mentors who want to prepare couples for marriage through Christ centered instruction and discovery.  Bob & Penny Armstrong have leveraged their marriage and parent experience with their pastor and counsellor wisdom to give us a practical and valuable tool for guiding couples toward an amazing marriage!”
