The Marriage Seminar
solves marriage problems by using interactive games designed to help marriages. The marriage retreat is not affliated with Bridezillas, Dr Phil, Dr Drew or Gene Simmons Family Jewels.
WOW!! This Boot Camp was life changing and AMAZING! I got to meet so many wonderful people and not only be a part of their transformation, I got to watch myself transform as well...! I think that everyone, married or single should attend and grow to their full potential! It was Hard work, lots of emotions, and fun, and in the end, it was totally worth it! I faced several hurtles when I got back home, but now instead of being defeated by them, I can conquer them head on with the tools I learned in Boot Camp! The Trainers and Directors are OUTSTANDING!! I could not have asked for a better experience! Thank you all!!

The marriage seminar taught me how to really forgive with my heart and not just with words, and to be able to love again.

The Marriage Boot Camp was the hardest thing we had ever been through. God broke through our barriers, defended our marriage with love, truth and compassion uniting our hearts and spirits.
Patti Jo, Colleyville, TX
I came into the bootcamp just 2 weeks after my husband blindsided me with wanting a divorce after over 12 years of marriage. I just knew that this bootcamp will show him that I was a perfect mate and all our problems came from his imperfections. Boy was I wrong! I learned that a deep dark secret that I hid from myself and refused to recognize actually contributed in a negative way to my marriage and made it toxic. While we focused on ourselves, we learned about each other and how messed up we both were when we got together. While we are continuing with the divorce, we are much closer and open with each other since we first met over 13 years ago. This is a must for every marriage whether you
e about to get married, your marriage needs tweaking or your going through your divorce. I wish we had gone through this when we first got engaged it would've have allowed us to relate to each other in a healthy non destructive way. Thank you to David, Jim, Elizabeth, Dana and all the trainers!
I would recommend this to everyone. I feel great about myself and I feel like it has saved my marriage. I feel like I my husband is my best friend and I can tell him anything. It help me understand life better.

The marriage seminar helped me let go of all my baggage and love myself again. The Marriage Retreat let me let down my walls and see that God was standing there waiting to love me the whole time.
Todd - Atlanta
I'm now loving myself and therefore, empowered to do anything.
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

The Marriage seminar made me aware of all of the baggage I was carrying around with me. It freed me of the hurt the pain and the fear that was sabotaging my relationship.
Chris, Houston, TX
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!
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.
Nichole - Houston, TX
Wow! What a wonderful program. At the Marriage Retreat I gained so much from this experience. I am now a beautiful,confident,strong,free new women. I thought I would never be able to say that. This program has taught me that I am somebody that is worth everything, and no-one is going to tell me different. I highly put a thumbs up to this program, because my life will never be the same only better.
Zan - Vancouver
The Life Enrichment Workshop gave me the opportunity to explore my baggage and in a loving, secure environment to really analyze and make a decision to free myself of this baggage and begin the process of loving myself so I can fully love others.
Maureen - McKinney, Texas
The Marriage Seminar gave me my life and marriage back. Distrust and the inability to forgive were blocking me from moving forward. I have learned through the boot camp how to forgive those who have hurt me in the past, my parents and my husband. I can now move forward in my marriage and we can see the love we had when we first met. How wonderful!!!

Mark and I were done. We had not lived together in more than two years and I was really hoping that the Marriage Seminar Boot Camp would assist us in making the divorce a smooth transition.
SURPRISE! What an incredible experience. I learned so much about myself, relationship with others, Mark and Jesus. I have been given the gift of growing in the truth of who I am and who I want to be. Mark is now and will be forever my best friend. In all the years we were together I never really felt that. We have been given tangible tools to use as we move forward together, and I have never felt so secure or right about anything.

I came into the Marriage Seminar Boot Camp with no hope that my marriage would improve. I left knowing my wife loves me and with hope for the future.

The Marriage Seminar Boot Camp should be required in the first year of a couples relationship. I spent my whole life destoring relationships, and not knowing why. This Bootcamp opened my eyes, allowed me to forgive those that had hurt me and gave me the tools to build a long loving relationship with my wife. Thanks David without you my lawyer would be a little richer.
Autumn - Dallas
The work shop helped me let go of my baggage and to forgive people that hurt me. The seminar also help me to realize that I had more value than I thought.
Bonnie - Houston
The Marriage Boot camp gave me my life back! I dumped the baggage I have been carrying for 35 years!
Tony, Ellicott City, MD
My experience at Boot Camp can be summarized best as beyond expression and value. I know that MBC has had one of, if not the single most positive impact to me. The personal insight and new perspective I gained toward my wife and family, has forever changed me for the better. I will use it to my greatest extent to continually improve my family relationship with my wife, family and beyond. I know this has given me a chance for the kind of relationship with my wife and family that I always wanted but struggled with achieving. The people that we met in our camp were some of the most extraordinary people I have ever encountered. Some I feel closer to than members of my family from the bonds we made during the camp. This includes Todd, Teresa and Angie who were our directors and trainers. This is something that should be mandatory for all couples, even if they are only considering a long term relationship. The enrichment and benefits that result would change the world. Thank you, Todd, Teresa and Angie, for giving me the tools for a better life. I will always be there for you. I am a new person because of MBC, and forever thankful. Through my experience at MBC, I have learned this. Mistakes are not failures; they are life lessons to be used to help us learn and grow. Compassion for others and the ability to forgive will accelerate learning. Not learning from mistakes, or giving up, is a true failure.
Margaret -Plano, TX
This has been my most life changing experience. I came thinking I?m done, after 18 years it?s over. I had so much hurt, pain, & depression. I was also mad God. I?d asked how much pain can I take. We?d been in counseling for 2 years. Through the drills and games I found healing and my way back to God. My husband knows he?s holding something fragile & delicate in his hands & I know he?s willing to give 100% to me. Was it is easy NO WAY! Would I do it again ABSOLUTLY 100%!
Brent - Dallas, TX
I am amazed at the positive change. We needed marriage help with all of our marriage problems. This Marriage Seminar will meet you at any point.
Linda - Vancouver
I was able to let go of the hurt and pain. I learned that I am a loveable person with a lot to give. The best part is I got the sparkle back in my eyes!
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.
Kris - Winnipeg
The marriage conference helped me gain confidence and acceptance. It has enhanced my relationship with Eddie in a way I could have never imagined before. I am free to love myself which will help me love better.
Brent and Colette, Atlanta, GA
The Marriage Boot Camp with the Life Enrichment changed our lives and our marriage. We walked in on the verge of divorce, and we left in the best place we have ever been in our marriage. We evolved into wholesome individuals who approach our marriage with a better understanding of each other, better communication tools, healed hearts, and God in our lives. This experience will continue to positively impact our lives, our family, and our marriage. We are grateful for this opportunity, the trainers, and the friendships formed. We will continue to share our experience with others, and give back to the Marriage Boot Camp. Thank you!
As I learned more about myself, hurts and dreams in the Life Enrichment Bootcamp, it freed me to be more genuine with other people. I'm able to share more love.
Garry - Dallas
The Marriage Boot Camp opened me up to my own personal hurts and problems and gave me strength to move forward in my relationships with my wife, family, friends and especially with God.
Judy - Winnipeg
The Life Enrichment Boot Camp gave me a sense of freedom from the pain and anger I was holding inside. My self worth was restored.
Mayte - Vancouver
It was like waking up from a coma. I found my purpose in life, became aware of all the wonders I have been missing and washed out all the anger and hate in my life. I had never experienced or witnessed so much unconditional love. The Marriage Seminar was the best gift anyone gave me.
Olga - Milam, Texas
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.
Colleen - Atlanta, GA
Having done marriage programs like the Marriage Boot Camp before, I came into it thinking I knew what to expect, maybe a blessing or a new positive outlook. Instead, I got a miracle. For the first time ever, I felt God kiss my face. It was physical and real. I feel a belonging and a peace like none other. I know in my heart that God brought me to the Marriage Retreat to find him again and I am so glad I did. I can't wait until my friends and family attend the Marriage Seminar. I want everyone to feel God's touch like I did.
Brandon - Dallas, TX
This marriage seminar opened up my eyes to all the hurt and resentment I had been carrying. It showed me how to let go, to love myself. It also made my husband and I realize how much we truly love each other.
Greg - Los Angeles
The marriage seminar helped me define my life's purpose which is: I am a strong, gentle, whole man, compassionately fulfilling the needs of my family.
Jillian Carrollton, TX
I'd already dealt with a majority of my issues but I was stuck in my thinking that I may never get married. At age 45, I have forgiven myself, God has forgiven me, but what godly man would want to marry someone that has a past like mine? It was filled with sexual emotional substance abuse that I'd experience because of being from a dysfunctional family and dating very abusive men. I now know that I deserve to be loved and the past is the past, and so now I've left it there. I'm now ready to pursue my future that is filled with HOPE!
Bryan - Dallas, TX
When I came to the Marriage Boot Camp, I wasn't sure what to expect, but I was open to change and gave 100% to the program. During the marriage seminar, I was able to forgive my father, whom I've hadn't had any contact with in over 25 years. More importantly I was finally able to forgive myself. The day after graduation I called my dad. The day after that we met for lunch and have started a brand new relationship.
Don, Dallas, TX
It was wonderful to see 100 closed and fearful Hearts open to the Love and Healing this Boot Camp facilitates. Mine included. Thank you, I recommend this to everyone.
Karen - Pensacola, FL
Going to the Marriage Seminar was the most important thing I could have done for myself! I came as a with so much pain & hurt that my life was controlled by self abuse and hate. Going through what I did for the four days there released my heart to forgive and let go of everthing that was in my way of loving life AND me. I am now a new,free,strong woman who respects herself and is a child of God!
Jon, Dallas, TX
I was referred to the boot camp by a friend in 2004. I was sleeping in his spare room and in bad shape. I was hurting after getting out of a relationship and spiraling down into serious drug and alcohol abuse. My life was miserable, painful and meaningless. I had no expectations from the boot camp and only went so my friend wouldn\'t throw me out of his home. The only thing I cared about was my next high. After stalling for two months I decided to get clean enough to attend. What happened at the boot camp was a miracle! I realized that my broken heart and drug abuse were the symptoms, not the causes of my problems. I was pushed to look deep inside. When I did, I realized how much my past spiritual damage was holding me back. I was raised in very strict religious home that was very legalistic. I thought I left that behind when I moved out at 17. In reality, I was still carrying all the guilt, shame and rejection around from my childhood. The boot camp helped me process and get rid of that. I was able to open up to God and receive his healing and love in all areas of my life. I would have never believed my life could be as good as it is now. My life has changed direction and the boot camp was the intersection where I made that right turn.
Carolyn - Dallas, TX
The Marriage Boot Camp confirmed my beliefs and gave me more confidence and hope.

Fanny - Harrisburg, PA
The Marriage Seminar was the best could happened in my life. I feel more confident,capable and forgiven. God bless all who make this true.
Reagan - Harrisburg, PA
The marriage seminar completely changed my life. I was dead inside and these four days gave me my life back. The Marriage retreat helped put me on the road I have looked for for so long. I feel excited about what is ahead for me.
Crystal - Atlanta, GA
This camp met and exceded my hopes and dreams of being the 'right thing for us'. I was worried that it was going to be a waste of time and money.. it turned out to be THE BEST thing we have ever done! Our marriage was hanging by a thread before this, but now my husband and I feel closer than when we first got married. We both have become emotionaly stronger, happier, better individuals. We were able to overcome hurt that we've been carring around with us for years. THANK YOU!
Lisa & Greg, Titusville, FL
We attended the Atlanta Bootcamp in February 2012, and all we can say is that a miracle happened for us. Our Bootcamp director and staff were amazing! We firmly believe this was the only place where our marriage could be saved and healed. To have gone in on day one with very little hope, to finishing the last day of Bootcamp happier than we have ever been...is still hard to believe. Now two months later, we're just now accepting the fact that it's not a dream - our prayers were answered. We can never thank Todd, David and the Bootcamp staff enough for what they did for us.
Thomas Cocoa Fl
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.
Kyle - Houston
This was the best thing a person at any stage of a relationship can benefit from. I will now enter marriage with all the road blocks gone. We will start as the two happiest friends on earth.
Kelly Claremore, OK
The Marriage Boot and Life Enrichment Boot Camp was definitely a life changing experience. I feel more confident, capable, open, and honest as a woman! My husband and I both grew as individuals and as a couple! We met so many people! We walked away with so many new friendships! The Boot Camp was one of the best experiences of MY LIFE!
