Steve & Mary Prokopchak

A Pre and Post-Marital Mentoring Workbook

How does a couple know if God has called them to marriage? This manual, provocative by nature, is written to help couples build their foundation and grow their future marriage. Steve and Mary Prokopchak believe premarital counseling must be a time of searching and revealing hearts, sharing deep values, and being honest about themselves and their future. They have developed the contents of this manual over the past 25 years by working with hundreds of married and engaged couples.

Called Together is a unique couple-to-couple workbook to help prepare for a successful marriage union and is designed to be used by counselor mentors leading pre- and postmarital sessions with engaged couples. It provides everything needed to begin a great marriage: in-depth biblical counseling, worksheets to help share feelings, communication, financial planning, sexual relations, post-marriage checkups, and wedding tips.
