"Overall, SUCH a great team of professionals. Lawrence was so much fun, Miranda was patient, and I could sleep to Jeff's voice--obviously a Yoga instructor. They disarmed a few of the student's biting comments but they did it with such finesse that not many people would have suspected it. I am so pleased to have met all of them and I'd love to work with them sometime. Thank you for this opportunity to provide feedback! ”
" I think the presenters were amazing presenters and people. This material has been for me a God send. By far the premium curriculum in marriage refreshment and in couple rescue. I have led 31 prep weekends and learn something new each time. I didn’t see much tie in to the ‘12 hours’-book which may be helpful to mention for post event follow up."
"Thanks again!! This training is by far the best we have in the Army for Soldiers. It is deep but easy to understand and they all enjoy it. I was trained in 2011 in Hawaii and used it all the time... Anyway, I will not forget your kindness and will be sending you all support for the work you do!!" Battalion Chaplain Fort Bliss, Texas
