Many of us try to face the issues in our life with an open mind and heart, the problem is that we were never given the proper "tools" to understand why we feel and react the way we do. We are good peple with good intentions, why then, do we have all these issues? Poor choices we've made, troubled pasts with parents, siblings and kids, the list is endless and the burden is great. Finally, I've got a grip on the issues in my past and I'm so blessed by the bootcamp. It's for everyone! If you have an open heart and mind it will be life changing ! It was for me...God Bless you all and I'm so thankful that I lived this experience.

When my husband and I attended the Marriage Bootcamp, I was set on getting a divorce. We had been together for almost 25 years and the love and desire was gone. I was extremely skeptical that a mere 4 days would turn around 25 years of built up resentment and anger. I am very happy to report that this program is AMAZING! Not only do I have the desire to make my marriage work but I feel love for my husband because I can now love myself. It is truly a fabulous feeling! If you don't do anything else for yourself...give yourself this blessing! It's a gift that keeps on giving!

All I can say is WOW what an experience Life Enrichment Boot Camp was for me!! I walked in full of self loathing and self doubt that I had carried for years, I walked out with my head held high! I love me for the first time in my life. I can appreciate what makes me special and valuable and above all lovable. Thanks to the people who put on the Camp, I am a NEW person and I LOVE ME!!!

This program will change your life for the better!! Any bitterness, resentment, hurt, anger, lonliness, communication issues, abandonment, abuse that is embedded in your life this camp will escape you from it. You will feel enlightened and back to loving life instead of just living life!! Bootcamp was amazing! I was able to find my best friend and the love of my life that was lost in our hectic life!
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!!
Life Enrichment Boot Camp really was really a turning point in my life. I was able to unload a lot of emotional and spiritual baggage by forgiving people that had very important roles in my life from my childhood and teen years as well as other authority figures from the last 10 yrs or so. The techniques we learned, the drills we participated in, and the atmosphere at Life Enrichment Boot Camp enabled me to release bitterness and baggage I had been carrying around for the past 20 yrs. This Boot Camp was a divine appointment for me and anyone who is sincerely trying to implement the strategies you are given there will be able to grow and experience inner healing--it was more effective than I had anticipated and I am so thankful for the experience and the memories as well as my new friends I made there and my cradle song--totally awesome!!!

Made me a complete person. Enable me to love myself, so I can truly love others.
Misty - Phoenix, AZ
To be sponsored to attend this marriage retreat is to be loved. I attended the marriage seminar not knowing what to expect. Knowing little about the exercises and drills,I attended with no inhibitions. I testify that if you truly want to learn some things about yourself,if you want to know freedom; freedom of hurts,disappointments,freedom from baggage that has been weighing you down even life long baggage. Know that self love,realization,forgiveness and freedom can be yours. Know that I am and was very,truly blessed.
Brenda - Houston, TX
The Life Enrichment Boot Camp is absolutely the most awesome experience, other than accepting Jesus as my Savior, that I have ever had. This opportunity should not be missed by anyone who has received an invitation, because all these invitations come from love.
Gracie, Atlanta, GA
I was skeptical about the boot camp, but that left after the introduction. After four days I left feeling more confident, with self worth and really loving myself for the first time. I shared somethings that I wasn't aware of or hadn't admitted until that moment in my team session. The boot camp has been an eye opener for me. I highly recommend it.

The Marriage Boot Camp helped to refocus me in a healthy direction.
Darcie, Roy, Utah
I don't know if you realize how much you helped me! You gave me the warm smiles and acceptance which enabled me to share my innermost fears, pains, and guilt!
You helped me do something that I've never done; to seriously forgive. I've never known what it really felt like. I thought that all I had to do was to say it and that was it....you helped me to get to the bottom of my soul and truly forgive and let go of some major issues. I will NEVER forget this past week.
Somehow God softened my heart and helped me open it for a major SPRING cleaning! WOW do I feel Good...and guess what? I AM GOOD! My husband and I are good. My little family is good! NOT PERFECT, but good.
Our daughter, keeps commenting about us. She teases us for kissing all the time now. She was hugely impressed when my husband and I got into a tiff last night and then actually appologized to each other and kissed (again!!). She smiled and said "So I guess they must have taught you guys how to say I'm sorry?" It really made my heart smile-for us and for her.
You are some extremely amazing people and I am so blessed to have met you! God Bless each of you.
Tammy - McKinney, TX

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

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.
Cindi - Harrisburg, PA
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!
I just wanted to write you and thank you and everyone at the show for helping us. Especially Dr. Phil for sending us to the Marriage Boot Camp! It was obvious with 11 marriages that I had to work on something but Dr. Phil said something that hit me really hard. We both had unresolved issues from our past that would have killed our relationship. I will never as long as I live forget the moment when I forgave God and myself. Since I was a very little girl I have always missed "My Husband". That is how I explained it to people my whole life. That day with Jim and Elizabeth the churning stopped, the loneliness stopped, and I could hear God's answers more clearly.
David - Winnipeg
I saw Dr. Phil's teaching style in this marriage seminar. The Marriage Boot Camp was more of a work shop than counseling. It was a great place for finding friends and meeting other singles. I have been to christian counseling and church counseling, but nothing had the impact like this. This was the most amazing marriage retreat of my life. I would recommend this marriage conference to anyone looking for self improvement, growth or more friends.
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.
Sarah - Vancouver
My life will forever be changed from having gone through this incredible experience! I came away with a stronger sense of self and the desire to share my experience with other's. Life will no longer pass me by because I'm committed to living my life to the fullest!!!
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.
Faye - Los Angeles
Pain I had carried for years was reduced. I forgave many people in my life. The Marriage seminar Boot Camp gave me purpose again.
Michele - Los Angeles, CA
I came to the marriage conference knowing that there were things in my life holding me back but was never able to really pinpoint what they were. Not only was I able to identify my issues and self defeating behaviors, I was able to gain the knowledge, skills and attitude necessary to address them and move forward. And in only 4 days!!
Sandy - Atlanta
The Marriage Boot Camp gave me self confidence, release from guilt . I am able to trust again. I am a worthy person and worthy of a healthy relationship.
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.
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.
Crystal - Los Angeles, CA
The Marriage Seminar has given me the courage to trust people again. I know that I am a worthy and loveable person and I want to be able to love people back.
Wendy - Dallas, TX
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.
Cathy - Los Angeles, CA
The Marriage Enrichment Boot Camp is a life changing experience. I am unafraid and looking forward "excitedly" to living the rest of my life.

The marriage retreat made me want to forgive my ex-wife for all the pain she caused me. After I forgave her I forgave myself and feel so much better.
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.
Sandy, Scottsdale, Arizona
Wow. I found my smile again. My joy. So now my husband have rediscovered our happiness and are renewed. A week prior to attending I was in a divorce lawyers office. Now I am confident in our future together. PLEASE trust in this program. If you feel you don't have time for counseling THIS IS FOR YOU. WE SAW MIRACLES ALL AROUND US. It feels great to take a nice deep breath again. :) Thank you to all of our new forbere friends and the most amazing team of counselors I've ever met. You have changed our lives.

The Boot Camp seminar allowed me to leave my baggage behind and let my anger go!
Jeff - Vancouver
For the first time in many years, I got to open myself up and look at what was in my heart. I got to put everyone else's opinions aside and look at what I want and need. Thanks Jim and David and the staff at the Marriage Retreat for bringing the life back to me.
Cathy - Winnipeg
The Marriage Boot Camp gave me the confidence to know I could love myself everyday. It washed away the fear and hurt from an old abuse.....it freed me to shine!
Laura - Houston
I was able to clarify my purpose in life. I came doubting that I could let go of past hurts. I am now free from the past and can use all my energy to live out my purpose.
Marcie, Plano, TX
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!
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!
Reagan - Houston
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.

The Marriage Retreat Boot Camp brought healing to my life that then helped bring healing to my marriage. I didn?t even know I was still harboring strong childhood guilt that was sabotaging our relationship. Member of: Willowcreek Fellowship
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.
Marlene - Vancouver
The marriage semianr taught me that forgiveness comes from the heart and that forgiveness is for me. I was stuck in hurt from the past. I am no longer stuck!
