God's Plan for a Joy-Filled Marriage is a marriage preparation program that is designed to help today's couple understand and embrace an authentic Catholic vision of married love. It unfolds the church's teaching on the sacrament of marriage as well as its vision of human sexuality and marital love. Aimed at demonstrating the "why's" behind the church's teaching, it does so in a thoroughly understandable, non threatening way. Based on Pope John Paul II's Theology of the Body it helps couples appreciate the beauty of God's plan and the joy of living it. Those who participate in this course find its message appealing and are naturally attracted to it. The God's Plan program will offers a chance to come to understand the beauty of our Church's vision as something that can be fully embraced and lived out within God’s magnificent framework for married couples.
