July 12th – Matt and Amelia –Corpus Christi, TX “It exceeded my expectations!”

Him: The course was incredible and taught us a great deal about marriage, sacramentally and practically.  We really appreciated the input from our instructors.  It makes entering into marriage seem a little less daunting when you have good people to guide you to becoming a good husband and wife.
Her: It was very thorough and our instructors worked to make it personal. It helped us reflect on necessary questions about marriage and our faith together. We are planning on printing our answer keys and saving them because they have such wonderfully presented answers in them!
Both: It added fire to our desire to be close to God and practice our faith together as a couple.

July 5th – Doo Hyun and Jihee – Houston, TX “It reminds us of the importance of good communication”

Him: Excellent training with the right blend of theology and practical techniques to achieve happy marriage.
Her: It truly is great to have valuable teaching and interaction with instructors. It was very great opportunity to learn a marriage in Christ and reflect myself in our relationship.
Both: It has taught us that marriage is not just two of us- but three, including Jesus.

June 28th – Mark and Caitlin – Detroit, MI “It encouraged me to have a deeper relationship with God”

Him: I had an excellent impression of this class. The conversations we had as a result helped us grow as a couple and we both learned a lot. I also enjoyed developing a deeper understanding of the Catholic faith throughout this course.
Her: I really enjoyed this course as it helped us to have meaningful and important conversations that I don’t think we would have had outside this class. We both learned a lot and I know it helped us grow closer as a couple.
Both: Wonderful course! Our mentors were so helpful and amazing, and we thoroughly enjoyed each assignment throughout the course.

Jimmy and Tina – Diocese of Colorado Springs, CO

His impression of the prep: The attention to detail was phenomenal. Every week, Tina and I would do a lesson together and would read the feedback from our instructors. We truly enjoyed the work and the thought our instructors put into their feedback to us.

Her impression of the prep: Thank you for such a thorough course! I enjoyed the go-at-your-own-pace aspect. Jimmy and I are both busy individuals (who isn't now!) and we would do a lesson when we had the head-space and the true time to do a good job and think through the questions together. I'm glad we didn't have to rush through anything just to get it done! We really got a lot out of it and will be a better couple because of this course.
Did it meet his expectations: Absolutely. I didn't have many expectations since this is the first (and last) time I'll be married, but it's been a thought-provoking course to go through with Tina.

Did it meet her expectations: Of course! It was a very insightful course for both of us and challenged us. We were surprised at how deep it made us think together, and it was well worth-while to dig at the questions and really glean the goodness from them.

June 21st - Filip and Melissa – Joliet, IL “I learned something new with each lesson”

Him: The class was great. It was well organized and I enjoyed the format of working with instructors who can share experiences from their marriage journey.

Her: I really enjoyed this class. I appreciated that we could work on it on our own time. It led to some really amazing discussions. Some topics we have discussed before, but not quite as in depth. It was great to see that we were like minded on so many topics.

Both: We spent so much time discussing so many topics, some that were very sensitive and controversial, that we probably would not have discussed previously. Not only that but we discussed these topics through the eyes of God. This really brought a new perspective in our life that we plan to continue using from here on out.

June 14th - Chad and Alli – Edmonton, AB “It definitely revived my faith!

HimMy plan is to consistently make it to mass so that I can connect with the Lord more and feel his presence. In doing this, I will set habits for my young children to help that they know the Lord better but also build their lives around being active members of our church community.

Her: Our instructors were fantastic to work with - they were so insightful and shared so many valuable things with us. We felt the course covered so many important topics and brought on many valuable conversations.

Both: Very user friendly and well laid out. Seems to cover a lot of the topics before one gets married.  

June 7th - Miguel and Mayra – Monterey, CA “It revived my faith by seeking God throughout my day and asking him for help and guidance.

Him: I liked that there was an open dialogue with us and the instructors. The system was easy to use and the instructors were very helpful.
Her: I really enjoyed reading the feedback from our instructors at the end of every section. The feedback was very detailed and expressed in such a loving caring way. We learned through this experience how to connect and keep God in the center always.
Both: We talked about things that we hadn't before such as forgiveness and NFP. It was very meaningful because we were open with each other and honest about what we liked and did not like. Having this communication brought us closer because we reconfirmed that.

May 31st- Ross and Autumn– Superior WI “The amount of positive feedback we received from our instructors on our answers blew me away and really helped to gain more insight on our faith.

Him: After going through this class, I took away great new relationship tools and advice to better myself and my marriage.
Her: After going through this class, my overall impression of it was that it was very informative and the instructors had outstanding feedback on how to overcome many obstacles couples face.
Both: It definitely improved our communication and made us start thinking about our future on a much more deeper level that we had not previously thought to talk about before this class.

May 17th - J and C - San Francisco, CA It made me want to go see a priest and confess my sins even though I'm not Catholic”

Him: Yes, it was more informative than I thought it would be.
Her: I appreciated reading the answer keys from our instructors and comparing the answers to what we had talked about before.
Him: This marriage prep brought up some shameful things I've struggled with in the past and it was a good reminder. It made me want to go see a priest and confess my sins even though I'm not Catholic.
Her: J told me some truths about his past that he never told me and it took a lot for me to forgive him but I did and we feel so much closer now.

May 7th Michael and Analiza – Detroit, MI - “The course allowed us to discuss our role and expectations as husband and wife, parents, and most of all, disciples of Christ.”

Him: I learned a lot of things that I didn’t know, and it challenged me to view things from a different perspective.

Her: It helped us that this is a good start to discuss our future journey as we enter the beginning of our marriage life.

Both: We appreciated how deep we dug into our faith, and the reasons why the church teaches what she teaches. There were a few times that we weren’t aware that certain things were so serious.
