"Developing Premarital Counseling Forms"
I hope everybody had a Blessed Easter! Please take a quick moment out of your busy schedule to see how to develop Premarital Counseling forms along with downloading the free sample forms and Premarital Counseling Sessions Certificate (picture to right).
"Developing Premartial Counseling Forms"It has been proven that premarital counseling helps lower divorce rates and improves the relationship harmony down the road. Premarital counseling allows couples to identify problem areas and develop tacts before patterns of resentment and distrust develop in the marriage.
In our state of Oklahoma if you have at least 4 hours of premarital counseling you can get a discount on your marriage license. In some states, the Premarital Counseling Certificate (free to download below) is enough for them to bring to get discount and then in some states you have to fill out their specific state forms and then the counselor, groom-to-be and bride-to-be will be required to sign and date the form also.
I have a sample Marriage Preparation Questionnaire below free to download that you have your bride and groom-to-be fill out before coming to the first premarital counseling session. Premarital Counseling questionnaires or forms should at least include:
These forms or questionnaires below are samples and can be modified to fit your church counseling needs. The Premarital Counseling Sessions Certificate of Completion is often used to obtain some marriage licenses so feel free to download this beautiful free certificate also.

QuickBooks® for NonprofitsDoes your nonprofit organization or church use QuickBooks (#1 bestselling financial software) for their accounting needs? If yes, the "QuickBooks® for Churches and Other Religious Organizations [E-book]" is a must for you!

Lisa will walk you through QuickBooks from start to finish, complete with examples, terminology, and everything a busy church administrator or bookkeeper needs to know.
This book is written for the beginner and advanced church bookkeepers alike, in a friendly and easy-to-understand style. It includes:
If you want to make your life easier when working with QuickBooks then you need to buy one or more of these books! Click the link(s) below for more information on Lisa's books or to purchase the books.
Setting Up a Housing AllowanceA housing allowance is the greatest tax benefit available to ministers. It is also one of the least understood.
It is simply a portion of a minister’s compensation that is so designated in advance by the minister’s employing church.
It is very beneficial for ministers because an allowance for housing is excluded from federal income tax. However, it is not exempt from the minister’s self-employment tax...more on that later.
In order to qualify for the exclusion from federal income tax, two very important conditions must be satisfied:
Your church must make sure the amount they designate as an allowance for housing is determined beforehand. It should be included in a board approved resolution and properly documented in the church records. Most of the time, it is reviewed and adjusted before the beginning of each new budget year.
Your church does not have anything to do with the second condition. The minister has the responsibility of tracking actual housing expenses and determining the fair rental value of the housing.
