Doing premarital counseling is a very personal thing that should flow from one personality and style to mesh into a particular situation and needs in a couple’s very personal environment. However, beginning counselors often feel a need for a guide and some direction. Starting off on the Right Foot offers suggestions of topics to discuss and general advice to give young people just starting out on the road into matrimony.
This book is also written with the understanding that some young couples, who perhaps don’t have access to skilled counselors, could read through it together to face the issues they need to face together before they tie the knot.
Janet Allison writes with experiences from both urban and rural settings across the African continent and from a Christian perspective.
