In the next month or so I will be teaching a six-week Sunday School course based on “Strengthening Marriage: A Resource Guide for Couples” from LDS.org.
Has anyone taught or been in this class (or any class in the church on relationships) before?
What worked? What didn’t? What was interesting? What was boring?
So far I am planning to use the 6 lessons as a framework to bring in a lot of what I have learned about couples during the last few years, and possibly show some video clips to illustrate some concepts, (on that note, is it a bad idea to show clips from non-LDS sources/movies during the block?). The biggest concern I have is not getting too intellectual (read: pedantic) and end up putting a lot of husbands to sleep. Sorry, that was sexist but in my experience husbands just generally are not as interested in learning about marriage. 😉
The 6 lessons are:
Applying Gospel Principles
Communicating with Love
Fostering Equality and Unity
Any notable omissions? There is very little on sex/intimacy in the manual, for example…
What say ye?
