Where Do We Come In?
prepare/enrich assessment program - engaged and married couples
When working with couples, there are three things that really define and set apart the way in which Not Easily Broken serves the people we work with. The first is the Prepare/Enrich assessment. This incredible tool is one of the most insightful and informative relationship assessments available. The assessment takes between 30 and 60 minutes to take (each person takes it separately). Once it's complete, we schedule a one hour session to go over the results. The assessment covers about a dozen different relationship aspects: communication, conflict resolution, partner habits, financial habits, sexual satisfaction, parenting beliefs, spiritual beliefs, etc. It measures both how positively couples feel about all the various aspects, as well as how much they agree about them. Subsequent sessions are scheduled to go over specific aspects in more detail, primarily those that revealed either significant disagreement or that both parties have negative perspectives of. These follow up sessions comprise the bulk of the program, supplemented by any other issues couples bring to the table that they'd like to discuss. The assessment also covers a stress index, personality profile, relationship dynamics, family of origin priorities, and current relationship priorities.
The second distinction is our availability. Need sessions in the morning? We can do that. Over the lunch hour? No problem. In the evening, once the kids are in bed? We get it. Need to talk on the phone, over Skype, or by text? We'll make it work. We'll meet at your home, at our home, a quiet coffee shop - wherever you feel comfortable. If you have a fight with your spouse at 11 o'clock at night, you wouldn't call a counselor, and likely not your pastor - you'd call a close friend. That's how we hope and expect to work with you. As friends - as community.
The final distinction of our ministry is cost. Whether engaged, married, or just dating, when you're a couple working with Not Easily Broken, we don't charge you. The only thing that costs money is the Prepare/Enrich assessment, which is $35 per couple, and that's Prepare/Enrich's fee, not ours. We'd make that free, too, if we could! But community shouldn't cost money. We believe community should be a fact of life, especially among God's people, as second-natured as breathing. We want to remove as many barriers as we can to community, so meeting with us is free! Click the button below to schedule an appointment.
Sensory Play Classes -Kids ages 1-5 and their caregivers
Life is moving FAST. As technology replaces imaginative play for kids, and as we cram family time into car rides and grocery store lines, our kiddos' worlds are getting more hectic and fractured. Young children especially need time to play, to get messy, to spend no-agenda down time with their parents and caregivers. Even more than academic training, these little ones need to engage their 5 senses, learn to employ their imaginations, and develop social skills that will allow them to form meaningful relationships in life. And when we teach these concepts within the greater context of a God who loves them and wants to be their friend, we build a foundation for a faith life that is often hard to grasp as an adult.
Enter Sensory Play Classes. You and your littles can join us for an hour once a week to hear a piece of God's story and play together through activities that will captivate your child's attention while developing their minds and hearts. We make shaving cream clouds and paint rainbows. We go fishing in the "sea" for Jonah and close the mouths of Daniel's lions. We use the light table to explore the stars that God spoke into existence to light up even our darkest nights.
