In addition we have listed a few sites devoted to the spiritual development of Men or Women.
A Note About Theology: The links listed below come from various Christian denominations and traditions. Gary & Laurie search for what works. Yes, often times they use materials from Christian ministries that need to be tweaked to fit their purpose. However, they do that anyway, even with their own denominational materials. So, look through the recommendations and take what will work best in your locale, adjusting the lessons and activities as needed.
