Waffles and Spaghetti - A growth group for couples

This Fall, my husband and I will be leading a growth group at Fair Oaks Church based on the book “Men Are Like Waffles-Women Are Like Spaghetti.” This interactive study designed by Christian authors Bill and Pam Farrel is a humorous look at God’s design in the differences between men and women which should keep participants laughing and engaged with video messages from the authors each week, workbook exercises and what promises to be lively discussion!

Men and women know they are different, but what can they do about it? In this interactive study, Bill & Pam Farrel explain why men are like waffles and women are like spaghetti. Men order each element of their lives into a separate box, women weave details of their lives together so everything touches everything else.

This study will help couples use their differences to better communicate and relate to each other as partners and parents. The material in this study is designed to help couples love and support each other in seven key areas:

·         Acceptance
·         Service
·         Encouragement
·         Forgiveness
·         Devotion
·         Motivation
·         Edification

And each of the seven lessons are sprinkled with the secret to all successful relationships – the Word of God. Check out this sneak preview…

We will be meeting in the Floyd White Chapel at Fair Oaks Church from 6:00pm – 8:00pm on select Sundays (9/18, 9/25, 10/2, 10/16, 10/23, 11/6, 11/20). Each couple should purchase 2 Waffles & Spaghetti workbooks at the cost of $15 for the pair and are available for purchase at Connection Central at Fair Oaks Church. Check out this promo:

For anyone who has participated in any of my other workshops or growth groups, this is NOT an MBTI study. Although there are certainly some places where descriptions overlap in the functions (S/N and T/F) there are other areas where they are clearly not in sync. A welcome sidebar for anyone interested in discussing it.

Hope to see you there!
