Love is like a garden, that quietly needs to be nurtured in order to grow.

Are we allowing our marriage the same room to grow? Are we nurturing our love and allowing it to increase in strength and happiness?

7-week Marriage Workbook

Matrimonial De 7 Semanas

Connect each night

It is advised that married couples should connect each night with one another (for at least 20-30 minutes), sometime between getting home and going to bed.

Now, this may seem impossible or overwhelming at first, especially if you and your spouse have become more like two ships passing in the night.

Yet, if this is the case, the lack of quality time together is probably beginning to take its toll on your marriage anyway.

A 7-Week journey

This study will take you and your spouse on a 7-Week journey through the virtues; particularly as they apply to your married vocation.

Supported with scripture and words of wisdom from the saints, you will be guided through an encounter together – helping you to grow with one another in virtue, and soar to new heights of holiness.

Remain in Communion

Allow this perfect Trinitarian love to be a model for the way in which you love your spouse, and don’t be afraid to work tirelessly to remain in communion with them.

After our honeymoon, we often forget to invest in our marriage – time, money, energy.

Think about the amount of each of these that was put into planning the first date, perfect honeymoon, or perhaps the first anniversary gift.

As the years go by and our family needs change and become more demanding, our marriage often takes a back seat.

Suddenly, we stop planning dates with one another, we lack effort in giving gifts, and we aren’t willing to make time to recount our day with one another.

The lack of quality time together is beginning to take its toll on your marriage.

This study will take you and your spouse on a 7-Week journey through the virtues; particularly as they apply to your married vocation.

Supported with scripture and words of wisdom from the saints, you will be guided through an encounter together – helping you to grow with one another in virtue, and soar to new heights of holiness.

Allow yourself this experience and tool in recognizing the virtues you already so valiantly possess, and in helping one another to establish a plan to grow in those areas in which you are struggling.

These questions will definitely set you, and your spouse, on the right course toward mastering the virtue under study. She also offers a closing prayer to end each session.

Emily Ricci – Founder of Gloriam Marketing

Having a resource like My Hand in Yours, Our Hands in His has been invaluable in reminding us to take time out of our day each day to continue to cultivate our marriage.

With the chaos of life, it can be difficult to carve out that intentional time, but having a workbook like this reminds us to take that time and strengthens both our personal and communal spirituality. I see this being a resource we go back to again and again.

Michael and Rachel Dill – Emmaus Journey Family Mission

This workbook will definitely challenge you and your partner by inviting you into deeper conversations than you normally have.

But the way the questions are structured, these conversations won’t be arguments. You’ll learn a lot about the virtues, a lot about yourself, and a lot about your partner as they reflect on truths that matter so much but get discussed so little.

I recommend really clearing out some intentional evening time for this – it would be ideal to do with your partner during Lent. It would also make for a good marriage enrichment group study, or curriculum for a marriage encounter retreat.

Wherever you’re coming from – one of the biggest takeaways my spouse and I got from this was just making the time to go deep with each other using God’s word TOGETHER. This is something so basic for a strong marriage, yet so rare to have offered in today’s hectic world.

I highly recommend this study to anyone looking to strengthen their marriage.
