The weekend and the program were amazing! Our coaches did a terrific job, with excellent backup support from the support couple! The insights they provided, as well as their demeanor, were exceptional. The experience with the other two couples was also excellent and very productive – it was definitely helpful having others there to share in their experiences and perspectives on much of the subject matter.
We had a great 5 hour ride to Sandy Cove discussing our marriage in anticipation of the weekend as we were both looking forward to the benefit we hoped it would provide, and we immediately started to reap those benefits after just the first night. Even though our heads were spinning after Saturday’s packed program, we actually would have preferred to have reconvened for a couple of hours after dinner to keep the momentum going. Sunday was another completely packed and productive day. Afterwards, we both had “enjoyable” tension headaches for our drive home, but despite this, we continued with some additional (lighter) marital discussions. In hindsight, it is clear why this is called an “intensive” weekend – it certainly was.
The structure of the program itself was also excellent, as were the printed materials. It gives us a solid guide and steps to follow as we continue working to strengthen our marriage. The program has opened our eyes to the many issues that we have faced and dealt with over the years, and has equipped us with the tools to address them moving forward. It also opened productive communication channels between us. I am so confident that we are now on the right trajectory, and I look forward to rebuilding our marriage as God intended. She is my gift from God that I need to cherish. Also, we will definitely be taking advantage of the 15 session follow-up. We also very much appreciated that this course is God centric, which is, what brought us to it in the first place.
