The marriage seminar helped me release old hurts and taught me how to forgive those who hurt me. It helped me open up my heart again towards others.

Fantastic!!! Attending the seminar was the best thing I could ever do for what I was dealing with in my life. Every day of my life was a party... a pity party just for me. By going through the drills, exercises, and visualizations and giving 100% I was able to face my unresolved issues with my ex-husband, friends, God, and most importantly myself. In such a short period of time I was able to make an internal change.
The day after graduating I was faced with an issue that always made me put myself on the back burner and I was able to stand up for myself and say no. I'm so proud of me and I know this is only the beginning.
This boot camp does not force you to do anything you don't want to do but it allows you to take your life back from the things that are holding you hostage.

My husband and I had a very rocky start and after eleven years we were finally starting to enjoy our marriage but something was missing from our relationship, unconditional love for each other. I had to forgive myself before I could receive his love for me. The marriage seminar drills allowed me the freedom to do just that and in doing it I opened up the door to allow him to love me. We are finally completing each other instead of competing with each other. He is no longer the enemy but my partner in our marriage and I am his helpmate not his enemy. We are using the tools that we learned in the seminar to listen and encourage each other instead of tearing the other one down.

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.

Carolyn - Vancouver
The marriage seminar experience confirmed my beliefs and gave me more confidence and hope.
When I came to the Boot Camp I had a lot of anger, bitterness, resentment, and hate inside of me over things from my past. By the time I left I felt like a thousand ton weight had been lifted off of me and I felt so much peace inside of me something I hadn't felt in years. I owe Tracie a very good friend a life time of gratitude for sponsoring me and changing my life in ways she'll never know. Coming to the Life Enrichment Boot Camp was an amazing experience something I'll never forget and I would recommend to everyone. Along with changing my life I meet a lot of great new friends and realized God does have a purpose for my life and it is worth living for.
Thank you to everyone that was apart of the boot camp for giving me back my life.

The Marriage Retreat helped set me free of the shame I have been carrying around. It allowed me to forgive where forgiveness was not there and empowered me to lovingly minister to others.
Melody - Atlanta
The Marriage Boot Camp made me realize I was worthy of love. I realized that it's ok to be me, no more no less.
The Boot Camp opportunity came along at a perfect time in my life; when the relationship I believed would last forever came unraveled in the most unbelieveable way. The experience far exceeded my expectations. I was able to forgive another for their part and myself for staying in for as long as I did. I am now - open, free, deserving, complete, and vulnerable to what ever God has in store for my life. Thank you to all the facilitators and directors. You are sent from above!
Jillian Carrollton, TX
I'd already dealt with a majority of my issues but I was stuck in my thinking that I may never get married. At age 45, I have forgiven myself, God has forgiven me, but what godly man would want to marry someone that has a past like mine? It was filled with sexual emotional substance abuse that I'd experience because of being from a dysfunctional family and dating very abusive men. I now know that I deserve to be loved and the past is the past, and so now I've left it there. I'm now ready to pursue my future that is filled with HOPE!
Nicholas - Vancouver
The marriage seminar did a lot for me. I became free of my anger and pain.
Liz - Atlanta, GA
The Life Enrichment Boot Camp has completely changed my life where I can truly say, ?I am free?, free from hurts, fear, self-doubt and all baggage that has kept me from close relationships. I am now closer to God than before. I am free to love without fear and I want help as many as I can to be set free by love!

Sherry - Vancouver
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.
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.
Johnny - Dallas
This has been a wonderful time in my life. I was able to get the hurt out of my life. God is truly great and so loving. He had this marriage help planned for my wife and I.
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!!

Marriage on the rocks? Are you still in love with your spouse? My Wife and I walked in the door with divorce papers. With the Marriage Boot Camp as our last chance to make it work. Our relationship and the love we have for each other is stronger than ever (we made it.) We now understand each other and learned a lot about ourselves. Get out the relationship tool box because you will come home with a lifetime of tools.

Going to boot camp caused me anxiety and trepidation. Would I be able do what it took to really get something out of it?
By the time it was all done though, I really feel that I was able to dig into stuff regarding myself I never have before, forgive myself and others, and come out noble and joyful.
God worked in me at this event more than any other.

The Life Enrichment Boot Camp allowed me to work through problems that I felt so hopeless about in my life. This seminar gave me a place to work on past hurts and learn how to forgive my father who hurt me.
Louise- Wylie, Tx
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!
Marriage Boot Camp for me, was a last resort at salvaging my marriage. Looking back, it's sad that I was not able to communicate with my husband to tell him how bad it was. And for him, he saw for the first time about it was. I never realized how anger played such a significant role in my relationship. I never knew what the power of forgiveness would bring me. Two months after marriage Boot Camp, we still work on our marriage everyday. The biggest difference now is I genuinely care about how my spouse feels. I genuinely want to make sure he knows that he is loved and respected the way he deserves to be loved and respected. Every day I remind myself that I am a Vulnerable, Confident and Trusting Woman who is Honest, Deserving and Strong. And I am now able to do it with a pure heart with pure love and with pure respect. Don't get me wrong, it's not perfect. But thanks to the marriage Boot Camp counselors and trainers I now have the tools and the support to make sure that I never have to feel to go through what I did alone. I cry when I think about where I could've been without it.
Christina - Dallas
This Marriage Boot Camp showed me that if you keep things inside yourself you can't (won't) let yourself grow. I know I still have to grow, but this experience gave me the courage and the need to grow so that I can have a healthy and happy relationship with my spouse.

This marriage boot camp gave me the tools to learn to love myself and have the confidence to look within myself and work with God to gain the answers I need in my daily walk on this earth.
Tina, Princeton, Texas
After 10 months of marriage I separated from my husband in December 2008. I then, realized that I was miserable without him also so after 2 months apart we decided to give it another chance. This time was going to be different. We were going to do it right. We would treat each other right, trust and be trust worthy, leave the past in the past and start again. Then, while he was at work on the day we had planned for him to come back home I got a message that the woman he ?wasn?t? having an affair with was pregnant. I was devastated. I gave up, my life wasn?t worth living anymore, I couldn?t get out of bed, I shut all my friends and family out and the only thing keeping suicide from being an option was my children. I came to the realization that no matter how many times we decided to work it out or do it right we couldn?t do it. I was a failure.
I sat down at my computer to start researching divorce recovery information because I knew I would need it as this was my second marriage I came across the Marriage Boot Camp website. I thought I would take the love test just to see what it said about me. I knew there was no way that I could afford the boot camp, that it was probably too far to travel and several months away so looking at that was not a consideration. After I took the test I was really impressed with the answers so I thought I would just search around the site to see if there was anything else I might find useful and I just happen to accidentally click on the boot camp information and it said the next seminar was in 5 days and was only 20 minutes away. I didn?t get excited because I knew I couldn?t afford it as I just lost my job then I saw the little note on the side about the sponsors, but sent an email for information just in case. I couldn?t stop thinking about it? what if there was a way to really save my marriage? I had to know so I called full of skepticism and in the middle of a full on anxiety attack and the voice on the other end of the phone was so warm and everything he said was positive. They would help us. As soon as I hung up I felt like a weight had been lifted off me. This was the answer to all my prayers. I immediately called my husband who wasn?t speaking to me at the time and told him God had put the answer right in front of me. I?m sure he thought I had lost my mind. Maybe I had? but it was my only hope.
I have had so many things in my life that have caused me pain. From the moment I was born and abandoned, then adopted in to a family where physical, emotional and sexual abuse were the experiences of my childhood. I had a failed marriage which I carried so much guilt for breaking up my kids from their father. A now my last shot of love and happiness was slipping out of my hands. I believe in karma and I was so resentful at God because I?ve spent my whole life trying to treat people right, help others, etc. Unselfish acts of kindness were my purpose so what was wrong with me or what had I done to deserve all the abuse, hurt and pain that I had suffered. Obviously I wasn?t the problem, but if I could get my husband there I had hope that he would realize what he was doing to me and take responsibility for his actions and then I would finally be relieved of the suffering he had caused me.
We learned so much and the first and most important was that I was broken too. One miracle for us was that we actually listened to each other. This was a FIRST for us!!! On the way home I found myself making amends to him for not making him feel important in my life and for speaking negatively about him to my friends and family. It never crossed my mind how those actions made him feel, even though, he had told me at least 50 times before. This was a HUGE step for us.
I can say that I feel much calmer as a result of this changed attitude. Before the boot camp, I was irritated and agitated with our situation ALL THE TIME!! Now, I can finally relax because we have been given the tools we need to let go of our baggage, forgive, trust and as a result of that my relationship with God has become much stronger. I realize, though, that we have a lot of work ahead of us before things are totally healed and changes are permanent.
The BEST part was that you provided follow-up steps, an accountability partner, and help if we need it. I was concerned about whether we would be able to stay on the right path.. If we fail, it is only because we fail to follow through on the things we promised to do. To say this has been a life changing event is an understatement. Thank you so much for blessing our life.

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.

Brenda, Dallas, TX
Before I went to Bootcamp, I had no boundaries. I didn't know I could make boundaries and enforce them. But, going through the Bootcamp helped me realize I have the power to do just that. I don't have to acquiesce to the demands of others. I have my own desires and needs that are worthy of being met (not at the expense of others' feelings but in a healthy way). I feel so much healthier!
Mary, Plano, Texas
I did not know how much I got out of it until the very end. I lost some baggage and regained my confidence. I feel so much lighter and peaceful.
