Testimonies From Our Couples Turnaround Workshop
Thank you so much for the [workshop], it was amazing! I know this journey won’t be easy, but easy didn’t get us here. I want to work and I finally feel like my spouse wants to work [on our marriage] also.
[the workshop] was an extremely important first step for us in turning our marriage and our lives around. Today, four years later, we are very different people than we were when we went through the workshop. We still use what we learned and have a stronger marriage because of it. I think if we had not had his program, we may not have made it though the most difficult part of our life. We are know that attending the workshop helped put us on the right path.
The gratitude we feel is immense. So much of the time, I want to say the people of Marriage Helper “fixed” our marriage and yet I know that’s not the right word. I think you presented to us the tools to create a sound & loving marriage and how to best use them. It was ultimately up to the two of us to make the decision to take some sort of action. One thing is for sure…it’s not a one shot deal and the “cure” lasts forever! We continuously employ those tools. It would be wonderful to say every day is total bliss in our marriage, but I think you know that’s just not the way things are. And there have been/are times I felt/feel we were/are moving backwards instead of forward…those times were/are extremely frightening for me. But, they are becoming less & less and some of the positive actions learned are now becoming almost second nature…yay!!!!
Compared to where we were before the marriage workshop, it’s amazing! We still have some day to day issues to work out and through, but I realize it took more than a weekend to screw our marriage up, and it will take more than a weekend to fix it. In the big picture, I see a big change in our goals and what we are doing to bring us closer again. Y’all have something very special to share, I personally, and my husband both feel honored and blessed to have been through your workshop. I’ve said on many occasions since I have been back, if only we had gone through this workshop before we were married! We would have saved ourselves, years and years of unnecessary hurt and sadness.
I definitely will recommend your seminar to other couples – it was amazing! Thank you again! Tell the presenters that I really appreciated how open they were to share their stories in order to help so many.
￼Our journey started years ago and is still going strong today thanks to Marriage Helper 911! Angela and I met while I was a professional baseball player which is a lifestyle most people would love to have. The downside is that you have access to almost whatever you want – including women. We fell in and out of love with each other due to conflicts that we had about my past and all of my lies. We both became distant from each other which lead me back to my old ways of infidelity. My counselor recommended the Marriage Helper 911 workshop to see if our marriage could be saved. The workshop was a HUGE success! It helped us understand each other better teaching us to speak our feelings and to be transparent with each other. Whatever your situation, the workshop will help! If there is HOPE there is a chance! Marriage Helper 911 was a blessing that saved our marriage. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!
My husband and I want to thank the team at the Marriage Helper retreat weekend! It truly was amazing. Friday was difficult of course because we were both apprehensive but continued through the entire weekend. We live locally and could not find a hotel to stay and went home each night. Saturday night we sat in traffic about an hour and 1/2 because of a wreck. We talked the entire time! I saw God at work that evening. By the end of the weekend we walked out with a much better understanding of relationships and how to make a marriage work. It was an emotionally, mentally, and physically exhausting weekend! We walked in scared, nervous, upset etc….and walked out happier and a lot closer. We were even approached by a few people who noticed how our expressions changed over the weekend. It was good for us to see we are not the only ones going through rough times and found ourselves drawn to a few couples in particular. I am so grateful and proud of my husband for going and sticking it out. At one point (with our arms around each other at the table) he leaned over to me and said “I love you. Thanks for making me come here!”. He also shared with our small group that same thought. It was a refreshing look on our relationship, family and life. Sunday we reconnected with our boys and enjoyed the remainder of the evening as a family. It was great for all of us!
