Does each individual who is getting married need their own workbook or can the engaged couple share one?
Is there a different workbook for the class facilitator, mentor couple, counselor or pastor who will be taking the pre-marital couple through the I Promise experience?
Each individual will need an I Promise workbook because there are questions and activities in the workbook that each person will have to complete individually and then discuss later as a couple. Each workbook also includes a code used to register and take online relationship and personality assessments.
Are there discounts for ordering I Promise workbooks in quantities?
Yes, there is a separate facilitator workbook. Facilitators will use their workbook code (located on the inside cover) to register on the I Promise website the same as the pre-marital couple. Facilitators are required to select the "'Facilitator" option during the registration process. This will grant them access to the facilitator page, which details tips and suggestions for using I Promise in both group and individual couple settings. This information is basically the same as the information found in the couple's workbooks.
How many sessions does it take to complete I Promise?
Each case of 30 I Promise Workbooks includes a FREE Facilitator Workbook and is discounted to $675.00.
Do couples complete the workbook together?
We recommend you complete I Promise in 7 sessions, one session dedicated to the Introduction and one session dedicated to each of the 6 chapters of I Promise. We encourage you to spend a session on the Introduction because it helps establish a foundation for understanding the rest of the material moving forward.
Can I Promise be used in a class setting with multiple engaged couples?
Each I Promise chapter has material that needs to be completed individually as well as exercises that should be completed as a couple. Each chapter includes a section called "Honest Talk", that will challenge the couple to participate in discussing thought provoking questions that will require honest answers. We strongly recommend that at least one hour be set aside for this discussion time.
How does a facilitator get access to the results of their couple’s relationship and personality assessments?
Yes, I Promise was designed for use with an individual couple meeting with their pastor, counselor or mentor couple but it also works well in a group setting.
How do individuals connect with their fiancé online?
Once the facilitator is registered online (ipromiseV2.strongmarriages.com), they will simply share their registration code found on the inside cover of the I Promise workbook with their couple. In addition, couples are able to click on the “Add Facilitator” button on the bottom of their couple page (once they have registered) and enter their facilitator’s code. Once the engaged couple has added the facilitator, the facilitator will have access to all their information and assessment results by selecting that couple from their facilitator page on the I Promise website. Facilitators are able to connect with as many couples as they would like and have the ability to remove couples when they have finished the I Promise experience with the couple.
Once an individual has registered using their registration code (found on the inside cover of their I Promise workbook), they will see the option to “Connect to My Future Wife” or “Connect to My Future Husband” on their checklist page. This will lead them to a page where they can enter their future spouse’s registration code (they must get this code from their future spouse) and connect with them. This process can also be done later from the couple page after they have completed their profile info and assessments.
