Pain I had carried for years was reduced. I forgave many people in my life. The Marriage seminar Boot Camp gave me purpose again.
Chase - Atlanta, Ga
I came into this program with many strong holds that have been keeping me from seeing the real me. I learned alot about myself and how I was in a deep depression,no self confidence and didn't even care if I were to die. The program helped me realize that I'm strong capable and a wise young man. I really am. Being the youngest man in there at eighteen years old it was really hard for me but I gave it 110% and came out as a better and new person.

I was referred to the boot camp by a friend in 2004. I was sleeping in his spare room and in bad shape. I was hurting after getting out of a relationship and spiraling down into serious drug and alcohol abuse. My life was miserable, painful and meaningless. I had no expectations from the boot camp and only went so my friend wouldn\'t throw me out of his home. The only thing I cared about was my next high. After stalling for two months I decided to get clean enough to attend. What happened at the boot camp was a miracle! I realized that my broken heart and drug abuse were the symptoms, not the causes of my problems. I was pushed to look deep inside. When I did, I realized how much my past spiritual damage was holding me back. I was raised in very strict religious home that was very legalistic. I thought I left that behind when I moved out at 17. In reality, I was still carrying all the guilt, shame and rejection around from my childhood. The boot camp helped me process and get rid of that. I was able to open up to God and receive his healing and love in all areas of my life. I would have never believed my life could be as good as it is now. My life has changed direction and the boot camp was the intersection where I made that right turn.

A TRULY LIFE CHANGING EXPERIENCE FOR SOMEONE (ME) THAT WAS MORE SKEPTICAL ABOUT ATTENDING THAN ANY OF YOU COULD BE, WHO ARE TRYING TO DECIDE ABOUT ENROLLING IN THIS SEMINAR. THE JOY I HAVE FROM NOT ONLY LEARNING HOW TO LET MY HEART SMILE INSIDE ME, BUT OUT TOWARD OTHERS IS THE MOST GRATIFYING AND EXCITING FEELING I THOUGHT I COULD NEVER, EVER, EXPERIENCE IN MY LIFE. BUT IT'S REAL AND I CAN'T THANK THE CREATORS, COUNSELORS, OR THE FRIENDS I MADE (WHO I NOW CONSIDER AS FAMILY) ENOUGH FOR THAT!
Cassandra - Vancouver
I will have a higher self esteem and more confidence about myself. I will now be able to be around my family and be able to speak up without feeling like my spirit is being broken. I now feel happy and whole.
Mindy, Ellicott City, MD
My husband and I just returned from the Atlanta Boot Camp. I cannot convey is words the difference I feel in my own body. The anger, resentments, and bitterness I had been carrying for many, many years is just gone. This experience has been nothing short of a miracle. The people I met during this process will forever be in my heart. It was a GIFT to be able to do this. It's life changing and to anyone researching the possibility of giving this a try: DO IT! It's worth the time and expense because you will not walk out at the end the same person!
My husband and I went into the bootcamp rating our marriage at most a "4". We came out with a "9". This was a last ditch effort and restoring our marriage. During the boot camp, I felt for the first time in my life actually loved by someone, my husband. This was the best thing we could have done for our marriage.

My neighbor asked me to go with her to the boot camp and I went in rating my life quality at a 9 (scale 1-10; 10=excellent). I discovered some amazing truths about myself that will definately make a huge impact in my life and to those around me.

Marriage Boot Camp was one of the most AMAZING things I have done in my life!
The feeling of years of weight being lifted can not be described. I have a new outlook on life and the way I view others.
I believe that attending a boot camp is a GIFT that everyone should give themselves!
My husband and I found each other again and in that process we have made some great new friendships with others who were attending the camp with us.

Rebecca, Houston, Texas
I went to marriage bootcamp one year ago this week. I can honestly say it was the hardest time of my life, and my marriage was not saved. BUT...I wouldn't have survived the fallout if I had not found my self in Plano, TX with the help of Jim and David. My husband was having an affair the entire time and is still with his mistress today. So, you see, there was no way for the camp to save my marriage - but it sure saved me. :)
Attending the Life Enrichment Boot Camp, was a wonderful decision which changed my life. I could never have imagined what a few days in Atlanta would do for me. I found it difficult to imagine, as Todd said the first night, that a room of 40 strangers would become as close as we did. There was such a feeling of love and closeness by Saturday afternoon. My trainer, Joel Smith, was very understanding and perceptive of the needs and issues of each of the four attendees in his group. I walked away from that experience with a total sense of freedom and a direction for my future. Keep up the good work!!

This seminar changed my life. My wife and I estimated our chances somewhere around 0%. Now we have a renewed relationship and are planning to move back in together. I believe that this is for anyone in a relationship, good or bad. The bast thing I have ever done for myself and my marriage.

The Marriage Retreat was the most amazing experience of my life!!! I am so sorry that my ex chose not to be a part of this...it would not have saved our marriage, but would have enriched our lives.

This was the best thing that has ever happened to me and my marriage. Not only have I learned how to give forgiveness but also felt that I have a solid purpose in life. This boot camp was a life changer!!
Al - Houston, TX
It is hard to say in few words what the Marriage bootcamp did for my wife and I, Simply stated it set us free and was truly life changing. It gave my wife and I a oneness that we have not had. It truly helped save our marriage. It gave me peace with others, with my God, and with myself. It is the best gift you can give to yourself and your marriage.
I went to Life Enrichment Boot Camp thinking that I had forgiven someone in my life that had hurt me. I knew I had a lot of anger for this person. Thanks to the wonderful, caring people of this boot camp I realized that I had not forgiven this person and that's why I had all the anger built up in me for that person. When I left Saturday night I had no doubt I had forgiven that person and I was free of the anger that had control of me. Praise the Lord, I am Free!!

Shannen Allen, TX
I came bouncing in to the Camp at a 9. I realized how hard I would have to work to get any higher, but was ready and willing to dig and feel and cry and laugh and hug my way to a healthier happier me. I was able to identify a major issue that has been really affecting me that I was oblivious to, and did some major work, but I'm going back. The staff was very generous with their personal time and GENUINE gut level honest support. If instead, it was where to find a million dollars, I could be more enthusiastic about sharing this secret. Don't walk, run. Your future awaits!

Thank you!!!
Sandi - Houston, TX
My husband and I came into our marriage with 2 previous marriages each, 2 kids (mine), and LOTS of baggage. Through the course of 22 years, we pushed our relationship to the back burner to take care of others needs. We didn't even know each other. This marriage boot camp was amazing. We have a peace in our marriage that has never been there. We are able to be friends again. I am a very happy woman. We came in rating our marriage a 4-5 and I would rate it a 9 now. God bless all the trainers and staff. You are all awesome!
Stephanie - Miami - FL
This reality show really peaked my interest. I'm about to get married and the show made me think of some things I need to resolve before going forward. I would like to give a special thanks to the couples that shared their lives. I would have never done that.
I'm here to say that this workshop is essential! No matter where you are in your relationship...the good the bad; it doesn't matter. YOU will be helped. The Boot Camp helps all lifestyles as well. Go!

What an amazing few days! My husband and I attended the marriage boot camp to add some fun back into our relationship, being in our late 60s, we were kind of settled into a rut that wasn't much fun. We got so much more than we ever thought possible for someone our ages, lots of life and love to enjoy, laughter and intimacy reborn for us. We both are so grateful to the directors and trainers for this wonderful life uplifting experience. We made new friends of all ages and our bond is strong.
Cedric, Duluth, GA

The Marriage Retreat was VERY worthwhile - very incredible. I was almost expecting my good feelings to go away but I have actually felt BETTER every day! Also I have a lot more energy - the baggage that I left behind was obviously taking a big toll on me. I was impressed with the organization of the program as well as the purity of its motives.
