How to Start a Real Love Parenting Group
Book/Video Study Group
Ask a friend or group of friends to read Real Love in Parenting together. As you share what you are learning, you will all have opportunities to share the truth about yourselves and your parenting concerns. As you continue to talk about yourselves and the principles of Real Love, you become a group. You can use any of the following books to start a group: Real Love, Real Love in Marriage, and The Essentials of Real Love Streaming Video have workbooks that follow along with the book or video you'll be studying (Real Love Companion, 40 Days to Real Love and Happiness in Your Marriage, and The Essentials of Real Love Workbook or The Essentials of Real Love Bible Workbook, respectively). The workbooks are designed so that you have no choice but to take the material personally and practically apply the principles in your life.
Sharing with a Friend
One person reads Real Love in Parenting. She shares the truth about herself and her parenting concerns with several friends. She discovers that one or more of them are interested in seeing and accepting her. They also want to share the truth about themselves and their parenting concerns. As these friends continue to talk about themselves and the principles of Real Love in Parenting, they become a group.
Groups exist only to increase the opportunities of its members to be seen and loved.
What a Real Love Group Is
- A group consists of two or more people who are consciously making an effort to tell the truth about themselves, find Real Love, and share that love with each other.
- When people in a group practice being loved and loving at a regular time and place, that is a group meeting.
- We need to interact with group members as often as possible—in meetings and outside them.
- Meetings are generally held weekly and last two hours. They are led by wise men or women—those who are capable of seeing and accepting other people at the meeting. Meetings can include any number of people, can be held at any location, and generally include members of all ages.
What a Group is Not
A group is not therapy. It’s not a cult. It doesn’t make arrogant claims to fix people. It’s not exclusive and does not require loyalty or money from its members. It is not characterized by a formal organization.
Your efforts will be far more successful if you intentionally associate as often as possible with people who have the same interest.
