Greetings! Gordon Whitney here, one of the producers for The Marriage Group, and I wanted to introduce the latest addition to our popular online marriage prep course, Living Our Faith in Love: The Walkthrough Video.

With this 5 minute walkthrough, you as Clergy will be able to have a quick but deep dive into what our couples experience firsthand. The video helps to tackle all questions related to the course material, as well as breaks down all of the ‘tech talk’ into an easy to understand demonstration.

As we continue to put forth every effort into strengthening our courses, we become better at truly meeting today’s couples where they are, making Living Our Faith in Love a more powerful tool in your ministry’s toolbox, as a great addition to your existing Pre-Cana programs.

If you would like some more information about any of our courses, contact us anytime to schedule a call and an extended demo!

The Marriage Group has enhanced its popular online Catholic marriage prep class, Living Our Faith in Love, and NFP Life: An Introduction to Natural Family Planning, with the addition of on-screen captioning in both English and Spanish.

Just as you see on any modern TV, “captioning” refers to the written words you see, usually at the bottom of the screen, showing what is actually being spoken by the people in the show. Also, just like with your TV, the captioning can be turned on and off with a click. Users can toggle between English and Spanish captioning just as easily!

Captioning is extremely helpful to course participants in three scenarios:

  • For people who are deaf or hearing-impaired, captioning allows them to read along with video presentations in real time.
  • When English is the second language for a course participant, captioning is a valuable “crutch” to help them along with understanding the words being spoken.
  • Sometimes, people participate in online courses from a public place, such as a library, where the volume needs to be kept low. In these cases, it is helpful to have the words written on-screen as the videos are playing, making it easy to follow along.
We are excited to solve each of those challenges for those we serve. Contact us today if you would like to learn more about our programs.

The Marriage Group has been spreading the good news of natural family planning (NFP) through its Learn NFP Online brand since its launch in 2012. Since that time, thousands of women and couples have learned about the Billings Ovulation Method of NFP.

There are, however, a handful of other NFP methods. Each method is scientifically-proven as effective for achieving and postponing pregnancy, yet each method has its unique ways of doing so.

In response to frequent requests from church groups, ministry leaders, and NFP instructors, The Marriage Group has produced a new introduction to natural family planning. NFP Life is a 20-minute presentation featuring an engaging, approachable, young couple that has been presenting NFP as part of Catholic marriage preparation programs for over a decade.

The presenters, Dustin and Bethany Riechmann, are the creators of the popular website, Engaged Marriage, and producers of the workshop, “Spiritual Sexuality: How to Get Closer to Each Other by Inviting God into Your Love Life.”

Dustin and Bethany have been married for over 15 years and are proud parents to three very energetic kids under the age of eleven.
