Lesson #10 – Family Planning—Discerning Family Size

This lesson is delivered via a video platform.  Please watch the video below and then proceed to the quiz that follows.



Take a few moments to discuss the following with each other.

  1. Why is couple-prayer an important part of discerning how many children wants to give you?  Do you pray as a couple about big decisions now? What is one small way you could begin to pray together more effectively about the decisions you make about your relationship?
  2. Have you ever “heard” God telling you what he wanted you to do? How might the information in this unit help you more easily discern God’s plan for your marriage and family life?
  3. Have you and your partner ever prayed together to find solutions to a disagreement before?  What would it be like to pray together more often about future disagreements?
