Write your awesome label here.

JTRLH Preparation Portal can be utilized a stand-alone resource or in conjunction with Journeying Through Reproductive Loss with Hope for Couples.

The Journeying Through Reproductive Loss with Hope Preparation Portal (JTRLH) is a comprehensive tool to assist pastors, counselors and mentors in preparing for discussions related to reproductive loss. This equips the helper to create a safe and supportive environment for couples to openly discuss their experiences, emotions, and plans considering this complex topic. The JTRLH Portal aims to equip counselors with the knowledge and confidence to facilitate constructive conversations surrounding reproductive loss by integrating biblical principles including relevant scriptures, theological perspectives, and practical applications to guide the processes. The Preparation Portal includes a brief introduction of the module, suggested discussion questions, and resources for the counselor to best enhance the counseling session. The development of this program allows counselors everywhere to engage in the program, learning ways to provide effective care for those they counsel.

Utilizing the Preparation Portal allows the counselor to explore the lesson, review prompt questions to enhance discussion with the couple, and access additional resources.  Each Preparation Portal module correlates with the learner's session and will offer the counselor specific insight and encouragement directly related to the topic at hand. The Preparation Portal will strategically prepare and strengthen the counselor for each lesson and topic when engaging in this sometimes-challenging topic. The portal encourages a balanced approach of discretion, wisdom, and sensitivity to foster healthy dialogues that embrace the transformative power of God's Word in all areas of a couple's life, particularly in the context of family formation. By dismantling barriers and promoting open communication, counselors can empower Christian couples to honor God in every facet of their marital relationship, including a journey through reproductive loss.
