Easy
4 stars By Rachel, Mar 26 2013
I really like this series as it has a broad coverage of sub-topics and is very well organised.  Each section gives a background of the potential issue, advicetips, and very importantly - some scriptural references  prayer points.  Very easy for anybody to pick up who doesn't necessarily have a background in counselling, and wishes to be better prepared to input into couples  families they come into contact with everyday.
