, - Free Marriage Mentor Training!
Marriage Mentor Training
This training can be completed online from home!
North Dakota Family Alliance is providing free mentor training from Les and Leslie Parrott for interested couples. You may think you are not the ideal couple to mentor, but here's what Les and Leslie say:
"No one expects a mentor to be perfect - only genuine and honest. A Mentor is a relatively happy couple, more experienced couple, purposely investing in another couple to effectively navigate a journey that they have already taken."
There is an abundance of couples who desire to be mentored, but a shortage of mentors. Couples want to grow stronger in their relationships before there is a crisis; we just need the mentors! Let's change divorce statistics and come alongside other couples!
Contact NDFA via email at email@example.com if you would like to becomes a mentor. Mentor training is available online at any time.

It will also examine the concerns CCSS presents for families, from the data mining of our children, to sub-standard educational material, to an over-reach of governmental authority, and a funnel for progressive ideology.
