“Really happy with the course content. The videos are great and it’s created targeted conversation for my husband and I, for a more effective way of discussing issues.”

Tim & Sarah

“My husband and I are almost finished and we HIGHLY rate this course. Within the first couple of lessons, we noticed huge improvements in the way we were communicating and relating to each other. Over the course of the ‘Marriage Kit’ journey, we have discovered so much about each other despite having been together 17 years already and generally thinking we had a pretty great relationship!
