Ongoing , 2014-2015 - 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 firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to becomes a mentor. Mentor training is available online at any time.

November 16th-22nd, 2014 - Family Week
2015 The Year of the Family
One Foundation: Restore. Preserve. Enrich.
Please let us all join together to use our Celebrate Family Week to kick off our proclaiming 2015 as “The Year of the Family.” As we have for eight years, we are asking you to spend time with your family, lifting up those family values that are so important to the legacy we leave for our children.
This year we will be utilizing “The Family Project,” a Focus on the Family study to help us realize God’s plan for the family in today’s culture. We will be facilitating an opportunity for churches across the state to make “The Family Project” study available to their people.
As we believe marriage and the family are foundational to society, we pray that you will join us in this exciting celebration, designating 2015 as “The Year of the Family.”
