New and Improved SmartLoving BreakThrough
We are excited to announce that we have completed the revision of the BreakThrough course, a three part series designed for marriages in distress.
This improvement includes updates to the activities and the generation of a new and expanded participant workbook.
This is the first stage of a bigger project to create a Companion Track where rather than doing the course alone, a participant could select to choose a BreakThrough Companion (minister or SL Coach) from their own network who would then accompany them through the course, meeting with them after each lesson, praying for and supporting them in their transformative journey.
This project will be a great asset to those who provide pastoral care to marriages in distress, including priests, deacons and friends and family, because it will provide a guide and framework of accompaniment through the existing BreakThrough course which has already helped hundreds of marriages.
Help us to rollout training for companions
We’ve already funded the Companion course development, but not the rollout. Your donation will help us to make this happen faster and to reach more potential BreakThrough Companions.
Ways to Help
Please choose below the currency in which you would like to donate
A Companion is a person who accompanies a spouse in distress as they progress through the BreakThrough course. Their role is to support, encourage, pray with the spouse, and help them apply the frameworks.
We can never have enough prayer! The work we do in promoting God’s vision for marriage can attract opposition –
please pray for us and our volunteers that we will be courageous and sensitive in all that we do.
Testimonials from our Graduates
"I enjoyed learning about new tools we can use. I learned about gratitude and knowing my spouse needs me to learn better ways of loving them. I will be doing the 40 day gratitude challenge suggested."
"This course has given me a positive outlook and hope to overcome our troubles."
"Wow! I learned how selfish I am/was. I learned strategies that will make things better instead of worse. I really need to work on forgiveness and not holding grudges and especially to identify my emotional needs and take a break to do that. Not to escape from them."
Female 31 years married, 5 children.
"Breakthrough helped us raise topics we had not dealt with properly."
Male, 29 years married.
"The course has made me think more deeply about my part in our marriage relationship. I probably became too involved with all things children to the neglect of the affection and needs of my spouse, over the years. I regret this neglect on my part but the course has given me hope that I can correct some of that neglect, hopefully a lot of that neglect in time. I intend starting the forty days today and extending the forty days to every day of my life."
Female, 65, married 39 years.
