Couples Overall Experience at the LIFE Marriage Retreat
"At first I was apprehensive about attending the Retreat, but mine ended up such a positive experience that I think of it as literally life changing. In addition to a better relationship with my husband everything in my life feels more meaningful and fulfilling."
"My overall experience of the retreat has been outstanding, magical, eye-opening, and simply amazing. I loved everything about this Marriage Retreat. The group discussions were so supportive and encouraging; our activities were exhilarating, fun, and profoundly effective. Our private sessions with Gerry and Margo were nothing short of amazing and life altering, and the understanding and gentle guidance shown helped me more that I could have ever imagined."
"This has been an enlightening and highly effective experience. I was not sure what to expect from the Marriage Retreat but I am truly happy with what transpired and with our experience. Everything was perfect."
"I found the Retreat to be a truly moving and transformational experience. I set the bar high for the Retreat and those expectations were not only met, but exceeded. The training, activities, and private sessions provided a wonderful framework for learning and awareness. The experience will impact how I think, act, and feel both inwardly and outwardly. I came petrified of losing my partner but have gained great hope and love now and forever. I am truly thankful and pleased for having had this opportunity."
"The Retreat was perfect and offered the perfect balance of teaching and learning through discussion, activities, and private sessions... Your patience, guidance, encouragement, and expertise were invaluable. You dealt effectively and head-on with issues in our marriage and gave us the map and tools we needed, and a light for the dark road we needed to traverse."
"The Retreat has been so wonderful. This was our last chance to save our marriage. I feel so light and so free; it is as if the weight of the world has been lifted from my shoulders. Thank you!"
"The Marriage Retreat was amazing and life changing. This is the best thing we have ever done for our marriage. I feel that before this experience we were living as roommates. From this day forward I am on a wonderful journey with my husband and partner. Thanks so much for sharing your wisdom and skills!"
"We knew we wanted to take our relationship to a new level and are convinced that we could not have accomplished what we have without LIFE Marriage Retreats and Margo and Gerry. Our expectations were surpassed in every way."
"Quite frankly, I came with a skeptical attitude and not much hope. But the Retreat was far more than I ever imagined. I did not think we could ever communicate from our hearts and resolve long-standing issues the way we did, but our results far exceeded my expectations."
"Wow! Wow! I had no idea we would come so far during the Retreat. We fulfilled and exceeded all of our objectives for the Retreat and found the personal growth and development we need as well as the reconnection we had lost in our marriage."
"My eyes and spirit have seen and felt things that they never have before. Gerry and Margo, you have given me tools that are priceless. This Retreat was the best thing I have ever done for myself, my husband, and my relationship."
"I have my life and my wife back! But just as important is that I found my voice and my heart again. We have tried seminars, counseling, weekend?s and other programs in the past to no effect. I know now that we never took the time to build that solid life and relationship foundation that you helped us to construct. Thank you!"
"I couldn't have asked for anything more! This Retreat exceeded my highest expectations; I have learned more in these four days than in years of counseling. What I have learned and committed to will change my life? I have learned answers to questions that I have wondered about for years and the path before me is clear."
"My overall experience of the Retreat has been extremely positive. I have learned the most crucial principles and skills of relationships, and just as important have been inspired to make more of myself and my marriage. We have been down for so long in our marriage that my hope was nearly gone. Now I know there is no limit to how far we can go."
"I simply cannot thank you enough for this Retreat. It completely exceeded all my expectations. Just amazing! The kindness and compassion of the staff combined with the overall experience were astounding. It feels like we hit the lottery! The insights you provided and the principles and skills you so effectively helped us learn are life changing. We were at the breaking poing point before the LIFE Retreat but we have found trust and forgiveness for one another and a new and joyful life together."
"I was dragged into this retreat with my heels firmly planted in the ground.
Now, after the retreat experience, I can't wait to recommend the program to my friends and family. A remarkable experience."
"Top marks in every category...The training held everyone's attention the entire time...The activities were fun, exciting, and challenging and we learned from every experience. Thank you LIFE!"
"Our experience was nothing but positive. I have not felt this safe in years. You have given us the tools and direction to begin a new life together and I am so grateful!"
"The Training Retreat was even more than I expected. I took so much value from the training, met some wonderful people, and left feeling relaxed and rejuvenated."
"I have been searching for a year for the right Marriage Retreat. I feel fortunate to have found LIFE Couples Trainings and Retreats. It was exactly what my husband and I needed."
"I came a little skeptical yet found everything to be even better than advertised. I did not believe that I could ever open up and communicate with my wife the way that am doing now. The Retreat was simply a marvelous experience!"
