(How to NOT Feel Overwhelmed)

When I was new marriage mentor, I didn’t know what to expect and, honestly, I felt overwhelmed at times. I wondered what I was doing. Am I really qualified?

Slowly, Michelle and I got more experience and we started to recognize similar themes. We started to raise up other lay leaders to work with couples. Recognizing some of these common challenges prepares you to mentor.

Marriage mentoring has gotten a lot easier for me. I have more experience. I know what to expect.

Relationships are complex. No one who has been married long has ever disagreed with me when I say this. So, if you are meeting with couples, you will see some complexity to their relationships.

I am going to start a series of posts that go over training we give to new mentors. I’m going to start with some of the common complexities or challenges that we see. To me, identifying them is part of what takes the fear away. We are also going to offer some suggestions on how to deal with these complexities.

The 5 common complexities I’m going start with are:

  1. Someone Doesn’t Want Help
  2. This Is About That
  3. Your Behavior, by Itself, Isn’t That Harmful
  4. You Don’t Understand the Impact
  5. There Are Multiple Behaviors

Once I started to understand some of these common themes and what to do about them, mentoring became a lot easier.

I have also put this into a mini-course that I’m offering for free.
