My husband and I attended the marriage boot camp after practically giving up on our marriage of 21 years. This boot camp literally saved our marriage! It was raw, emotional, invigorating and life-changing. It gave us the tools to handle disagreements and wash away a mountain of resentments. Tools that are very easy to implement. Thank you David and the rest of the Marriage Boot Camp and Life Enrichment Team. YOU ROCK!!
I could have NEVER imagined having all the worries and regrets lifted off of my shoulders in 4 days.I can FEEL AGAIN.I can only say JUST DO IT.Don\'t think about it.The most liberating experience of my life.Thank you all who cared so much to carry the passion and desire to heal others!!!!!

Where to begin? My husband & I attended, KNOWING we only needed some "tweaking". I knew what he needed to do to make out marriage trust & communication better. I had dealt with MY past and was okay. OMGoodness! We trusted the process and allowed each other to work on ourselves (even though we each thought we didn't really need any personal work).
We learned such useful skills and tools that we are both beaming and sharing with as many people as we can that this Marriage Boot Camp is the best thing you can do as a couple!

My marriage was totally over. Ten months after losing our only child, my husband of 8 years began cheating. When I learned of this, I tried to reconcile, but he left me anyway. After seventeen months of waiting on him to reconsider, & 2 months after I filed for divorce, as a last ditch effort, we decided to give Boot camp a try. When we got back, I let my divorce attorney go, & we are planning to renew our wedding vows! We recommend all couples attend Marriage Boot Camp. We know if we had earlier, we could've prevented most of the obstacles we've been through. The staff is a group of angels, God bless them!

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.
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

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.
Pamela - Atlanta, GA
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.
Michelle, Tucson, AZ
I came to marriage bootcamp as a last attempt to save my marriage. Hoping and praying it would help me get through to my husband. What I realized was I was broke and played a huge part in my marriage falling apart. My husband quit the program and that left me. I had a great deal of support and inspired other couples not to end up like me. I am at peace now with the divorce and can let go and move on. I wouldnt have been able to do this without the help I received from the trainers. Thank you so much! I am truly a better person for this experience.

The Marriage Boot Camp gave me a safe place to work through my issues. I now have hope for a new worthy and valuable life.
Michael -St Paul, MN
I had a lot of anger issues that I need to address as well as a pornography problem. When I came to the Marriage Seminar I did not know what to expect, after having gone through the bootcamp I realize the lies that have been told about me and how I do not have to live under that shroud of resentment, anger, and guilt anymore.
It is the best four days you could invest on the rest of your life. Invest in yourself today.
Zach - Wylie, TX
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!

The Marriage Boot Camp seminar made me a better person, helped me begin to work on my marriage instead of run from it. Made me forgive all of the people who I could not forgive before. It taught me I am not a bad person and I should not be afraid.
Karen - Lake Charles, LA
The marriage conference helped me release all the things I've been fighting & resisting to change - anger, unforgiveness, fear. I learned to replaced anger and unforgiveness with forgiveness, fear with confidence, courage and worthiness. I'm no longer just in survival mode, I am ready to live the rest of my life.

This Boot Camp gave me the tools that are enriching all my relationships. The Boot Camp has improved all areas of my life.
Cindy - Winnipag
Undenaibly the Marriage Retreat Boot Camp is the best gift (outside of the honor of leading someone to Christ) that anyone could EVER receive. As a Christian Human Resource Professional I have been fortunate enough to go to many seminars, and classes in my life relative to life enrichment. But this camp "takes that cake". I would recommend this Boot Camp to ANYONE (Christian or Non-Christian) who has a hunger to be more successful, who wants a clearer perspective of their purpose in life, and who deeply desires peace where there has been unrest.

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.
Tiffany - Dallas
I had already filed for divorce and I was not on speaking terms with my husband. Then he started talking about this "Marriage Boot Camp." All I could say was that this is some kind of scam. The first few nights I kept saying that his marriage seminar wasn't going to help anything. But on the third night things really started hitting home. I realized a lot of things. The marriage retreat Boot Camp has been one outstanding, wonderful life changing experiences.
Pat - Dallas
The Boot Camp helped me realize which past experiences has been keeping me from feeling alive. It helped me understand how to start letting go of past hurts.

Without a doubt, Bootcamp changed my life. When my father left our family for his "new" family, he left me, my brothers, and our mom with a lot of anger and hatred for him. I can't tell you how many ways that affected my life. My job, my marriage, my friendships, & my faith were all suffering. The Bootcamp made me realize how imporant it is to leave those things behind me and live as a man with a plan for my life. I'll never be the same! Thank you!
Dan - Atlanta, GA
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 marriage hit bottom. We were in therapy. I couldn't open my heart. I was searching, I needed something.......... The Marriage Seminar Boot Camp gave me my answer.
Amy, New Jersey
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!
Natalie - Houston, TX
The Marriage retreat helped me forgive people that hurt me in my past. I was also able to accept myself for how God made me. I now love everything about myself. It's a wonderful feeling!

I watched your show the other night and loved it. I came here to get more information. My daughter and her husband really need something like this. They will be watching this week.
Deborah - Ottawa
I didn't think this Marriage Boot Camp would benefit me and then on Saturday, my whole life seemed to turn around. I had confidence and begin to smile again. I can't seem to stop smiling! I really seem to like myself again.
Going in was wary of a bunch of Kumbayah, hand-holding BS and by the end was very glad of my investment of time and energy for the positive personal results that might have come in weeks, months or never in my life!
Lena, Richardson, Texas
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.
After attending the Marriage Boot Camp my life has made a complete turn around. My husband and I were on the verge of a divorce but after attending the Boot Camp our marriage is 3times stronger than it was when we were first married. The tools you are given during the boot camp on how to resolve issues etc. are amazing. I cannot thank David and his staff enough for the knowledge, commitment and skills to save not only my marriage but also myself.

Attending the Marriage Boot Camp, Life Enrichment Camp change my life. I went to this camp with expectations of "fixing" my broken marriage, not only did it do exactly that but it helped me with forgiveness, hurt, direction for my life. The staff was very professional and helpful with meeting my needs and pointing out issues I didn't know I was battling. I totally recommend this camp, it's life changing, you will not regret it.
