The Marriage Boot Camp freed me from pain and anger.
This Boot Camp was an AWESOME! experience. I really appreciate being a part of it and My Forgiveness level has increased tremendously. I have and will continue to release the pains of my past. The tools given to me are wonderful! I have been looking for other ways, besides church and hearing the Word of God, to make my life at peace with all that I have gone through. I met a long time friend here also after 30 years that had an added blessing which added to the significance and meaning of this Boot Camp. I thank God for all that I had and have today...God Bless and Thank you Trainers!

My life was in turmoil and I couldn't enjoy it at all. My husband wanted a divorce, I moved to Austin and felt so depressed and even considered killing myself. My life had so many struggles and I just had no hope left. I couldn't figure out what was wrong with me I have 3 kids to live for and being 28 it just felt like life was such a burden. My first night at boot canp I was thinking this is my last attempt at being happy but they probably cant even help fix me. I can't even express how grateful I am that my friend told me about this boot camp! I gave 100 percent of myself and I gained more than 100 percent back. The tools you gain here are so usefull. I feel as though everyone could benefit from this! I went in as a untrusting, unforgiving and unconfident women! When I left my baggage at boot camp and learned forgiveness, I got my life and hope back. I believe in this program and I am happy to yell and live as a strong, confident, forgiving and beautiful women. I look forward to the future and there is nothing I can't handle. Thank you life enrichment boot camp team! God bless you :)

Although I came to the marriage bootcamp expecting a totally different experience than I received, the outcome was exactly what I wanted. This was the best thing that I could have ever gone through. My life has changed in a very powerful and enlighten way. I now know who I am and what my purpose in life is. I owe this change to God, my trainer Beth and the experiences of the bootcamp.

I am still on fire from the life enrichment boot camp experience. My life is more positive now that a load has been lifted and I feel a sense of freedom. The forgiveness process was the hardest part for me as my scars were deep within. Now I am able to walk in freedom from that bondage. Such a HUMBLING, DETONATING, AND EXHILARATING EXPERIEINCE I will TREASURE. I will never forget any of trainers; you each touched me in a special way. I came away from the boot camp a free person and tools I could use daily, my back pack tools are: to be a developer, a communicator, an achiever, strive for consistency and always find the positivity in everything. I CAN DO THIS!!!!!!
TIP: If I start to feel uneasy about something I write it down on a piece of paper then I burn it, WOW that feels good, cause it is gone...puff.

The Marriage Retreat Boot Camp helped me and myself again. I became lost in the big game of life and it helped me re-focus who I was happy being.

I was skeptical when I was first told about the Marriage Seminar. I never imagined how much hurt and anger that I inside me until I started working through the marriage and relationship games. Being able to release hurt, forgive others and let go of all of it was wonderful. I feel like a complete new person.

The Marriage Seminar gave me my life and marriage back. Distrust and the inability to forgive were blocking me from moving forward. I have learned through the boot camp how to forgive those who have hurt me in the past, my parents and my husband. I can now move forward in my marriage and we can see the love we had when we first met. How wonderful!!!

Wow! I cant even explain the difference this has made in our lives. Gene had canceled the first time because he was not willing to go. Then he finally gave in, what a changed man. This was either make or break for us. And now were so happy we chose to make the best life possible for us. Left the old baggage, making a wonderful new life together. There are absolutly no words to say how thankful we are to each and everyone who took time for us. GOD BLESS YOU ALL! Love,Gene and Jen

Jamie, Houston, Tx
I worked hard for years trying to achieve all the goals I had set for myself thinking they would make me happy. I couldn't figure out why I was still feeling sad, alone and afraid to let anyone really know the real me. Bootcamp really opened my eyes and my heart to what had been holding me back all that time. I found the person I had been trying to portray. It's not even a matter of trying anymore. I am the person I have always wanted to be.
Terry - Canada
In the 29 years of marriage we have never experienced anything more enlightning and refreshing than the marriae seminar and boot camp. It was one of the most incredible experiences of our lives. We always thought we had a great marriage, but we didnt realized how dim our light was getting until we completed this experience. Now we are shining bright with God's light in our eyes and heart, and other people see the changes in us already. The bond in our marriage has grew 10 fold of what it was before this seminar. Now there is far less stress in our lives because we now know how to let that stress bleed away into nothingness. God is present in this marriage seminar and he touches all whom attend in a very special and loving way. God be with the staff and all who attend. It is a life changing experience that we will never forget. Thank you so much, and God bless....

This was the best thing I could have ever done for my life in almost 50 years of life. It was a life changing experience to where I will NEVER look at life the same rather walk with an extra pep to my step. Thank you for a new outlook on life with less of life bringing me down and more of life to look forward to.
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!
Garry - Dallas
I wanted to say the boot camp really messed up my life. I can't seem to get anything done anymore around the house. All I want to do is spend time with my wife. I had gotten to the point it was easy for me to ignore her and now all I want to do is spend time with her. Neither one of us is getting much accomplished. We are acting so immature. You'd think we just got married or just fell in love with our new behavior.
Brent - Dallas, TX
I am amazed at the positive change. We needed marriage help with all of our marriage problems. This Marriage Seminar will meet you at any point.

This bootcamp saved my life, my marriage and made me complete again. I just wished I knew of this years ago, could have saved myself a ton of pain.
Phillip - Vancouver
When I walked into Marriage Boot Camp I was expecting a load of crap. I was very angry and felt forced to be there. After learning about myself and finding Christ and his love for the first time, I would recommend this Boot Camp for anyone.

The Marriage Boot Camp helped to refocus me in a healthy direction.
I have never wrote a testimonal before in my life.so here goes..
The boot camp has changed my life competely,let me tell you a little about my life so you can understand where I came from and what it did for me.My husband and I have been separated for 2 years and 4 councelers later it got so bad we couldnt even talk on the phone any more and so for the last 3 weeks we have been ____(TRYING) to communicate by e- mail and that was getting nowhere even with my counclor helping us, we just got in this vicious cycle that we couldnt get out of.. I was sure I hated him, but I have been married before and knew the grass was not greener, \"if he would just respect me\" I thought and treat me that way everying would be o.k...So I signed up for boot camp he agreed to go of course I only if I paid, The trip down was almost 5 hours and full of tension and no talking I drove and he sat over in the passanger side and listened to his I-pod even the next moring we said nothing to each other...We could not stand EACH OTHER!!! As we entered the camp I came to realize I was there not to save my marriage but the get me healthy,,,
I worked hard and got rid of so much resentment, guilt, unforgiveness, and many more things that was holding me down from living my life the way I deserved to live it..
I learned how to have more compassion and love for my fellowman,(and I thought I was already a loving person) I now look at all my relationships differently, my communication skills are enhanced, my work is better even my kids act better (lol) I know it changed my life it changed my heart.
I can honestly say
The only reason I went is so that I could say I tryed everything to make this relationship work..I knew that come Monday I was going to call my attorney and file for divorce.. and now I can honestly say I cant wait everyday to experience something new with my husband..We are still separated but now we have the tools to work through our struggles and experiences and are building a solid foundation for our relationship to grow,I feel excitied when I see him walk into the room I have not felt this way in a very long time..The love was there but just couldnt get past baggage...
I would recommend this program to anyone getting a divorce,to getting married it was life changing and something I will always treasure
Thanks so much for letting me share
Linda, Little Elm, TX
I feel a peace and serenity that had been missing for a long time. I didn't realize I had been operating in an obsessive cycle of "I must forgive because God wants me to".
A huge weight has been lifted because I experienced rigorous honesty and forgave because it is healthy for me. It is so freeing to not feel guilt and shame because I fall short! God will meet me right where I am.
I have re-gained my sense of purpose.
We just got home from doing the boot camp with the Dr. Drew show out in LA. IT SAVED OUR RELATIONSHIP! It was such a profound, emotional experience that we could never have really been prepared for. The directors and trainers are the most wonderful people. They have an ability to read what is truly in your heart. I harbored so much anger and was finally able to let go. My spouse and I feel a love for each other like nothing we have ever experienced before. I went into it thinking we would split...we left the boot camp ENGAGED and planning our wedding. It was the best thing we have ever done in our lives. We are better people as individuals and as a couple. If you need a positive change, if you want to break the cycle. Married, single, divorced...this is the program for you. Leave it all behind and live a more fulfilling life. It is possible and they will make it happen. I wish that everyone I know would go. It\'s such an amazing experience. Everyone deserves happiness, and this will make it a reality for you.
Kelly, Allen, TX
I came through the boot camp in June 2009 sponsored by my best friend after I had hit bottom. I wanted to die. I was in so much pain emotionally, had it not been for the fact that I am a mother to two fantastic boys, I would\'ve ended my life. This was a last-ditch effort for me and out of sheer desperation I went. I didn\'t know what I wanted or expected. Only that I wanted to be different when I walked out of those doors for the final time on Saturday night. The transformation that took place in me was beyond my wildest imagination. I learned to forgive and let go of my past; something that had weighed me down for years. Hour by hour and day by day, the anger and the guilt and shame melted away and I became someone who could love, but more importantly, be loved. If you have ever wanted to do something for yourself that will change you from the inside out, let someone have the blessing of sponsoring you. It will cost you nothing, but it will change EVERYTHING!

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. It did mine and I love be alive and at peace again. May any of you that have doubts...follow you heart, free yourselves and allow our group to sponsor you. God bless!
Derrick - Mount Pleasant SC
What a life changing experience! The marriage seminar was truly AWESOME. This boot camp has helped me open up and find the heart I never knew I had.

The Marriage Boot Camp was the hardest thing we had ever been through. God broke through our barriers, defended our marriage with love, truth and compassion uniting our hearts and spirits.

The marriage seminar freed me of my cynical, judgemental attitude and made me realize God is in control of not only my life but of the lives of those I love...I am not.

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.
Wendy - Madison, WI
Wow! What an amazing experience at the Marriage Seminar. I have learned to love myself and value the person that had become buried for so long in bitterness, resentment and anger. I feel that my life has been spared and that I truly am the person I've always wanted to be. My husband and children have already been able to tell the difference. I wake up ready to conquer the world. Thank you to the trainers and staff at the Marriage Retreat for making this a rewarding experience for me.
Robert - Los Angeles
At the Marriage Boot Camp I dug into 50 years of baggage and dumped it. Made a decision and acted upon it to forgive myself.
I went into the Life Enrichment Boot Camp a broken woman filled with shame, guilt, low to no self-esteem and just longing to stop the emotional pain I was enduring due to a divorce after many years of marriage.
I graduated a capable, worthy, free and forgiving woman. I truly feel brand new. I put down baggage I had lugged around all my life that even years of therapy had not eliminated.
Don't delay your decision to participate! Get registered ASAP! IT WILL CHANGE YOUR LIFE!

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.
I attended the Enrichment class and gained so much value that I attempted to returned with wife to take Marriage boot camp, she has refused to attend so I have moved into becoming a trainer.
She and I may not make it but I have so much purpose and drive for life, that now I believe that it will all be ok. My life is so full today that the return of love is already here, on the inside. I want to personally thank the leaders who changed my life and it will directly effect my kids forever.

The Marriage Seminar Boot Camp has been so life changing for me. I have finally forgiven myelf of all my past mistakes and sins. I know how to love and how to be loved. I had such "walls" around my heart that I would only let people get within arms reach of me, this is including myself. I am FREE!! Free from fear, anxiety, other peoples dissatisfaction with me, rejection, the fear that I was unloveable.
Darlene, Garland, TX
I use to define myself as a stubborn, angry and empty person. After boot camp I now define myself as a happy, free, valuable, loving and forgiving person!!! I walked into the boot camp desperate to find out why I am so angry and empty. I found out why and so much more!!! I was able to forgive those that have hurt me, including myself. I am the old me again but, so much better!!! Friends say I glow and have a peace about me. For the first time in a very long time, I am looking forward to my life! Thank you to all of the Directors & Trainers for helping me get my life back! God Bless all of you!

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.
