Money is Messy. You Can Help.
For too many couples, money is getting in the way of a great relationship. It’s preventing them from living the love and money story God is calling them to. Better Halves® equips marriage educators, counselors, church leaders, and small group leaders to help couples be better, together. The result: closer marriages, stronger families, and thriving communities.
Looking for resources for your Better Halves facilitator training or small group resources? You're in the right place. Create an account and get started.
Both workshop and small group curriculums bring couples together to discover what’s holding them back from living out their best love and money story. As a hands-on and facilitated experience, Better Halves provides game-changing insights that empower couples to discover and address the real forces at play behind their finances (hint: It has very little to do with numbers and math). Couples come out the other side with a foundation of understanding, communication skills, a sense of purpose, and compelling/realistic goals.
Ideal for those looking for an alternative to traditional faith-based financial curriculums. No DVDs or PowerPoints, here. This kit empowers you to lead a six-session small group program that is designed for 3 to 7 couples per group (like a couples Bible study). Your Leader’s Guide walks you and the group through each session as it tackles central financial and relationship topics. From spending/saving to the biblical significance of generosity and community, each session blends group discussion and time for couples to work on their own – with a just a little bit of homework between sessions.
Prep time for the leader is only about 10 minutes per session!
The Better Halves Workshop Facilitator Kit equips you to facilitate 12 highly-flexible learning modules (about three hours of total content). This program is designed to be easily customized for seminars, workshops, marriage retreats and more. Ideal for groups of 5 or more couples, it’s a critical addition to any pre-marital class or marriage enrichment program. Your one-time purchase of the Workshop Kit gives you unlimited access to the training and materials you’ll need to hold as many workshops as you’d like. Facilitators frequently offer this workshop for around $150 per couple.
Better Halves equips church leaders, premarital counselors and small group leaders to guide couples in discovering the truth about what makes marriage and money difficult – and realize that there’s hope. Couples gain new understanding of their partner and new skills for making financial decisions better together. They take action by setting small, achievable goals with tools designed for couples of all incomes and backgrounds.
The workshop can be led by pre-marital educators, church leaders and counselors with less than an hour of online training (included with Workshop Facilitator Kit).
The small group can be facilitated by volunteer couples or individuals with only 10 minutes of preparation per session.
