"I went into this workshop very reluctant but walked out amazed. I didn't realize how much we don't talk intentionally. We needed this time to sit knee to knee/heart to heart."
"Before this class, I dreaded walking in the door after work because everything ended up in an arguement. Since we complete the workshop I feel like we have reconnected, it's not perfect but we have the tools and are making steps in the right direction."
"I have many stresses that are out of my control but I let it effect my marriage. Creating the chart and showing it to my spouse was very helpful for both of us. At this workshop we made a plan to help handle the stress."
"This information was real, practical and helpful. I realized other couples avoid things and struggle to find the time to talk because of hectic schedules. I am a better husband because of this workshop."
"My husband and I enjoyed going to the Growing Better Marriages course. Going to the course allowed us to check in with each other on key points in a neutral setting. We enjoyed setting time aside to work on our marriage and learned new tools to deal with problems that arise. The course was very helpful and we recommend the course to any couple."
