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.
I was really amazed how this boot camp helped my marriage. My husband and i had some struggles in our marriage and we had been attending counseling prior to our trip to the boot camp. We thought were doing all the "right things" already, but thought boot camp would teach a little extra. I was blown away on their techniques and how they help you discover why you do the things you do that can cause issues in your relationships. I would completely recommend this and or the life enrichment for everyone because it helps you become a better person with a lot of new understanding in your life and for a happy life.

At the Marriage Boot Camp I was able to forgave the person that I thought I would never be able to forgive. Because I did not know how to do it step by step. And...It feels great!, I feel free, full of love and serenity. I was used to live with worry and some resentment towards this person because of his actions. I can't belive how different I see him now. I feel compassion, even love and understanding. I see all people around me with acceptance and some love. And guess what?, It feels great!!!
The most important I learned in the camp was to LOVE MYSELF. The Boot Camp is the best gift I've ever received from a friend.

The marriage seminar helped me forgive and know how to forgive the people I needed to forgive. The seminar and counseling helped me gain self esteem.

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!

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!

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.

The Marriage Retreat helped break me out of my comfort zone. I learned about who is really in control if I don't forgive.

My husband and I just graduated The Marriage Bootcamp and I have to say that this was a huge blessing for us. We were on a path headed straight for an ugly divorce. We were offered the chance to attend The Marriage Bootcamp and we felt that we had nothing to lose and went for it! Boy do these guys know what they're doing! I was a broken fearful woman and my husband was bitter and angry on day 1 and on the day we graduated, we were two completely different people. I am strong and confident and my husband is calm and loving. We are getting to know each other all over again and we love what we see! We cannot wait to pay it forward and be trainers ourselves! These wonderful people have canged our lives! Thank you so much for everything!

It is said that some things happen that will create memories, others events will change your life forever. Sadly some of those impact us in ways that we never dreamed would grab us and hang on for the ride of our lives...
When we remember them, they tear at the very depth of who we are and make us question everything we say we believe in. It is exactly those "leaches" that life enrichment boot camp helps us get rid of. The "baggage" that we drag into our friendships, family and relationships. For me it was time to give them a home of their own. The graveyard.
I am forever impacted in a positive manner because of LEBC. It gave me the tools to recognize and remove what was hindering me from having a fulfilling life. I would recommend it to any one of the people I call my friend and even those I call my enemy because they just might be a friend who is so covered with leaches I can't even recognize them.

This program completely changed my life! I was dead inside & these four days gave me life again. It helped put me on the path that I have been looking for, for a long time. I feel excited about what is ahead for my life.
Beverly - Dallas, TX
At the marriage seminar I realized I had dealt with forgiveness but not the grief. The Marriage Retreat Boot Camp weekend cleared it all up.
Jimmy,Blue Ridge, Texas
I went into boot camp as a sceptic as I'm sure most people do.
After Graduating bootcamp I feel peace where there was none.
I've found purpose in life and all of my relationships are stronger.
I believe in this program 100% I recommend every one of you do this.
This program Will change the world..
Israel - Dallas, TX
WOW! What can I say but thank God for The Marriage Seminar Bootcamp. My experience has changed my life from the inside out. I had issues with faithfulness in relationships (God and women). Due to the camp, I was able to confront my problem and get rid of all my baggage that was holding me back from having a faithful relationship with God and the woman of my life. I was able to forgive. I am free and now God has full control. I now have a blessed future with God and my family.
Ray - Los Angeles
The Boot Camp seminar affirmed good things in my life and helped me discover and deal with some negatives that have impacted my life. My life is now more balanced and in correct perspective with myself, God and others.

The marriage seminar completely changed my life. I was dead inside and these four days gave me my life back. The Marriage retreat helped put me on the road I have looked for for so long. I feel excited about what is ahead for me.
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.
Marianne - Winnipeg
I went into the Marriage Boot Camp not realizing how much shame I was carrying. I am in a marriage that, by the worlds standards, should be over. In the worlds eyes I should have left my husband many years ago. However, I have felt the Lord telling me time and time again that I am to remain with my husband as long as he is in the process of recovery and wants to be free of the chains that bind him. I am not in a physically abusive relationship, but my husband has issues that stem from his childhood. He is working on those issues, but it is taking alot of time and patience.
Sometimes I feel ashamed that I have remained by his side. I feel that the world looks at me as the biggest codependent woman in history. However, the Boot Camp helped me to realize that I am okay! I am right where God wants me! There may come a time when I have to walk away, but for now I am in the right place and I have no reason to feel ashamed of that.
I came away with a new sense of self-worth! I found that I am a "forgiving, free and joyful woman". I am forgiving because that is how God made me and I choose to forgive. I am free because I have forgiven and I have broken free of the chains of unforgiveness. And, I am joyful because I am free to be the woman God created me to be.

Thank God for the wonderful people that I met during the 2/9/11 - 2/12/11 bootcamp. You all are in my prayers and continue to work hard with your relationship with God and your love ones.

Fanny - Harrisburg, PA
The Marriage Seminar was the best could happened in my life. I feel more confident,capable and forgiven. God bless all who make this true.
Greg Burbank CA
It is hard to write this without sounding to sappy. I attended the event in Burbank CA at a Marriott. But truth be told, if this event was held in the back of a VW van I would have gotten the same results. This is far more than a Marriage boot camp, this is a "How to be Passionate about life camp".
We all deserve to have this experience, we all deserve to get this lesson on how to put down walls and give and receive love again. It personally saved my marriage,my relationship with my kids and friendships.
Renate - Atlanta, GA
I wanted to thank you all so much and give you an unexpected update. I know that we were not there to find a spouse, but you gave me the techniques that enabled me to have the best relationship that I have ever had in my life. Rob and I were married on May 6, 2005. We have both felt like it was because of the "Marriage Retreat Boot camp" that we are together and able to support each other. Thank you for your help and your encouragement.
Debrah - Dallas, TX
I am amazed at free I feel. I received the Lord at a very young age, but always thought something was missing. My prayer for 2006 was that I would learn how to fly like an eagle. Life Enrichment Boot Camp showed me by forgiving myself and others I could fly. My friends at church on Sunday could see the difference in my eyes I was told. Thank you for everything.
Debbie - Winnipeg
I'm very happy and honored to have been part of the Life Enrichment Boot Camp. It has opened my eyes and heart to choose to be to free of my hurt and pain.

Before when I read the testimonials, they were just words. Now when I read them, it is all so true. This is an experience. You will think four days was just a drop in the bucket to what you have to look forward to. I feel amazing! Life is amazing. I encourage everyone to sign up for the marriage Boot Camp even if it isn't that bad all the time. If not as a couple, then do yourself the favor of signing up for the Life Enrichment Boot Camp. You are worth it!

Kelly, Austin, TX
WOW!! This Boot Camp was life changing and AMAZING! I got to meet so many wonderful people and not only be a part of their transformation, I got to watch myself transform as well...! I think that everyone, married or single should attend and grow to their full potential! It was Hard work, lots of emotions, and fun, and in the end, it was totally worth it! I faced several hurtles when I got back home, but now instead of being defeated by them, I can conquer them head on with the tools I learned in Boot Camp! The Trainers and Directors are OUTSTANDING!! I could not have asked for a better experience! Thank you all!!

As of Oct. 1 2002, I told my husband we were getting a divorce & I would file for it in six months. This January I went to this Marriage Retreat Boot Camp and in four days I was able to look my husband in the eyes & tell him I didn't want a divorce and how much I loved him.

My husband and I are thrilled with the outcome of the Marriage Retreat Bootcamp. We have been able to take what we learned and apply it to our lives. It's only been two weeks and there is a dramatic change in our lives already. Four months ago, I was ready to take my children and leave my husband but the Lord sent us to the Marriage Bootcamp to learn how to love and respect each other. Jim and David were awesome!
Gene and Jen
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

The Boot Camp completely opened my eyes.
Sam, Mckinney, TX
I just have to say that this was the absolute best thing I have ever done in my life, for myself, my marriage, and my growing family. Jim, David, Dana, and all the Trainers were monumental in my releasing of a life full of pain, bitterness, and anger. I didn't think I would ever be free from all that baggage, but I was able to let go and let God back in my life and start to build relationships that were once severed. PLEASE join this program for you and your family's sake!!

The Marriage Boot Camp allowed me to finally forgive myself. I carried pain, guilt, and shame for 17 years! I now see that I AM lovable and I deserve to be loved. I now know my purpose in life. I am a lovable, free, gentle giant that will be a lighthouse to let God's light shine through and help others find victory in God's plan for their lives.
The Boot Camp has brought my marriage back together. My wife and I have pure joy! I am a new husband and a new father. My family is whole!
