I learned to forgive and love myself and got rid of all the baggage I carried.
It's been seven years and I still say it was the "only" true help we ever got back then. My advice:even if you are going to end up on the sad road of divorce, the marriage boot camp will change your lives, especially if there are children involved. Despite our efforts in keeping our marriage together we are now divorced but we always think about what we leaned from the boot camp. Thank you for doing the best you could for us.

I learned that I am my own worst enemy and how many rocks I had put into my love jar. I learned that I don't have to take responsibility for everyone and that it is okay to take care of myself and then I can share myself with others.

At the Marriage Boot Camp I released past hurts and found forgiveness for myself.

This was the second most important thing I have ever done in my life.
I have spent a large part of my adult life trying to heal the pain that has at times has been paralyzing and has not allowed to me to emotionally mature in some areas. I have tried counseling and psychiatry. I did 2 things this weekend that have changed my life. I verified that the boundaries I set with my mother and the forgiveness I gave her prior to the boot camp have released the chains in that area of my life. I also forgave myself. I have written volumes of journals that are actually my conversations with God as well as prayer and studying scripture. Those are all necessary but the boot camp gave me the tools that brought it all together for me.
I have periods in my life where my heart was wide open and my relationship with Christ was tight. I had surrendered my will to His and those were the only periods I experience TRUE peace and joy. However, even during those periods I was unable to totally forgive myself. The Holy Spirit was using me to do the Lord's work. I slowly allowed a wedge to be driven in that relationship and couldn?t find the way back. The boot camp reminded me that I am at my strongest when I am at my weakest.

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..

The Boot Camp seminar gave me the freedom from worrying about what others thought of me.
Debra, Dallas, TX
I was told by a friend this would be in the top 10 of my life experiences. It certainly was! The bottom line is if anything from your past is still affecting you, it's not in your past. Bootcamp opened up and began the healing in areas I thought could never be healed in my lifetime. Whatever it takes to come to camp if you need it you should camp.

The Life Enrichment Bootcamp was the beginning of my adult life. As an abused child I was stuck in the emotional world of a scared 12 yr old. Touch was painful and self love a fantasy. Now several years later I am a confident, beautiful woman. I am also a massage therapist enjoying the happiness and healing that touch can give. Fear was blocking my purpose and rage was blocking my love. I am excited about what the future holds and waking up in the morning is now a wonderful gift!

I received so much more than ever expected from the Boot Camp and Life Enrichment Program! I went in doubting I would be leaving together with my husband. I not only left very happily with a renewed love and respect for my partner, but the Life Enrichment opened my eyes to challenges in my life that were holding me back, and I did not even realize. A great bonus - I left with close friends and bonds that can never be broken. I recommend if you are on the fence - go for it - its one of the most amazing life experiences I have had! I need this rejuvenation yearly!

I have attended and lead many personal growth seminars, so I have an idea of the miracles that can occur when your heart and mind are open. The LEBC allows God to enter your heart and to heal both your mind and your soul. Come to the seminar with interest and a willingness to do the work you will be well pleased with the outstanding results that are achieved over a four day period. Do yourself and your friends and family a big favor.
Diana - Garland TX
I would highly recommend The Marriage Retreat and Boot Camp. I have been to many self help workshops, positive thinking seminars and other programs, but nothing has touched me like this marriage seminar. We needed help to save us from our marriage problems. We were desperate for marriage help. The marriage retreat saved our marriage.

The Life Enrichment Boot Camp is wonderful. I was glad to go for the 4 days. It made me realize a lot about myself and how I needed to take direction of my life. I have also started to go back to church, which is something that I let slip away.

This Life Enrichment Boot Camp enabled me to focus my energy into positive energy instead of negative energy. It helped me wash away all anger and open my mind to love.

The Marriage Boot Camp made me realize that I needed to take care of me. Taking care of me will help me to become the whole person God intended me to become.
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!!

At the Marriage Boot Camp I learned how to cope with anger and most of all I know what the real meaning of fogiveness is. I also learned how to love from my heart.
Sharing is not something that I was accustomed to, especially with others I do not know; therefore I was very concerned about attending. However, I was extremely excited as I saw and read other graduates' testimonials. I attended this program and gave my all, shared my all and came away with all the tools. This course was truly life changing for me and others that I will interact with. I highly recommend attending both bootcamps. Trust me, if you give all; you will get all from it.
Pamela - Vancouver
At the Life Enrichment Boot Camp I learned how to TRULY love myself and forgive myself. I now understand how all the "negative tapes" have affected my life. I was a passive person, and just let WHATEVER sway me. I know what it means to be FREE and I now have the tools neccesary to continue walking in that freedom. LEBC really changed my life for the better. My situation did not change when I graduated Seminar, but I DID and I can hold my head up high and have REAL peace in my heart. Even though life is EXTREMELY PAINFUL at times, the LEBC taught me how to deal with that pain and PRESS ON!!
Cindy - Ogden, UT
Thank you so much for giving your time, energy and love at the Marriage Boot Camp. You really know what you're doing. I feel transformed and alive again. My husband & I have a new start to rebuild our marriage. The Marriage Retreat was out last hope to try to save our marriage and it really worked. We were headed straight for divorce. I have no doubt that we would be divorced if it wasn't for the marriage seminar. We couldn't even talk to each other anymore due to our anger & resentment. Now, we are connected again and have hope for the happy family that we both want. Thanks again for giving the gift of happiness, peace and a family staying together! I can't express to you how grateful I am.

The Marriage Retreat BootCamp was an amazing experience. I learned what really matters in life and I want to thank he Directors and Trainers for making all that possible.

I cannot possibly say enough wonderful things about the Marriage and Life Enrichment Boot Camp. I instigated the decision for my husband and I to go. I was desperate to find something. He was hesitant. We were both scared for different reasons. I know I felt truly broken and defeated. What a difference four days make. At least when it's the right four days. And these were definitely the right four days. I found myself again and most importantly, we found each other. We smiled again, and laughed again and loved again. Most importantly, boot camp gave us both the tools to continue to improve and strengthen our marriage so we can continue to laugh and love together. And the people you meet at boot camp? Unbelievable. They are my family. I trust them with my life. After only four days! I know they have my back and I have theirs. We talk, even if only a brief text message, everyday. I can't thank Todd and his team enough. Thank you for lighting my candle again. I promise to never let it dim ever again! Anyone who's reading this-DO IT! Don't question. Just leap! You won't regret it

This has helped my self esteem and self worth 100%. I would recommend the Marriage Boot Camp to anyone who is struggling with depression, self worth, self esteem and forgiveness. It has been the best thing I have ever done for myself. The Trainers are wonderful and so helpful. I never do anything for me and I decided I was going to give myself this Life Enrichemtn Boot Camp as a gift. I am totally, completely a changed woman.

Kimberly, Atlanta, GA
Marriage Boot Camp and the Life Enrichment course changed my life. I came hungry and ready for change, however, I had guards up because I had been hurt in the past. The Boot Camp allowed me to peel back years of layers and it showed me that I could leave my baggage behind and never pick it up again. The most important lesson I learned is that I had to learn to love my self and most of all forgive myself for the different things that had happened in my life. I realized through the years I was very mean to myself and that I needed to stop the negative self-talk. My toolbox is full of tools now and I am equipped to continue to do the work to be a healthy person.
My marriage has blossomed and progressed so much because of the Marriage Boot Camp. My husband and I received tools on how to communicate and it has changed the way we function in our marriage. Todd, Teresa, Angie, Dave and all of the trainers were so awesome!
For the first time in a long time, I feel like I am no longer sitting on the bench in my life but I am an active participant.
Amy - Atlanta
The Marriage Boot Camp showed me the way to a new life. It got me in touch with the person I thought didn?t exist anymore. It is definitely a life changing experience! It helped me to true happiness!
Jeff - Vancouver, BC
The Marriage Seminar Boot Camp should be required in the first year of a couples relationship. I spent my whole life destoring relationships, and not knowing why. This Bootcamp opened my eyes, allowed me to forgive those that had hurt me and gave me the tools to build a long loving relationship with my wife. Thanks David without you my lawyer would be a little richer.
Lisa Marie Dallas, TX
This Life Enrichment Work Shop helped me learn how to get past the hurt that has kept me from accepting and loving myself for so many years.
My husband and I went through the Marriage Boot Camp and it is exactly what you see on TV. It is hard to explain how all the drills work on making you a better person. The camp showed us we want a long lasting loving relationship. Don't walk! Run to the camp. You will not regret it.
Becky - Denton, TX
During the marriage boot camp I came to realize that my anger ,resentment and all the hurts by being abandoned by the people I trusted most has kept me from fully trusting Christ. I have always kept a piece of my heart for myself. Protecting it from being hurt. That way no one could hurt me again like I was hurt by my mom. By doing this---I have come to realize that I have also kept a piece of my heart from Christ. But Sunday morning after marriage retreat when I went to church, I felt a completeness I have never felt before. There was such a peacefullness in my heart.
Wayne - Fargo, ND
Simply amazing. Everyone should experience this once in their life.

The Marriage Boot Camp has changed my life! This is such a cliche, I know, but it's true!! It's amazing what can change in just a few days. On Wednesday my husband and I were getting divorced and by Saturday we are planning our re-committment ceremony! We got rid of all the baggage weighing us down and underneath it all we found we really did have the love we needed after all! Thanks for giving us the skills we need to continue on the right path to success in our marriage!
