The marriage retreat was
wonderful! This was our first retreat and we plan on going to all
the others. The exercises we did really helped improve the intimacy
in our marriage and helped us to focus more on our relationship. The
conference center location was the perfect environment to work on
our relationship, as well as form relationships with other couples.
Robert & Stella are great
and really genuinely care about couples strengthening their
marriages. It's very refreshing to know them and that they tell the
truth about marriage.
After having attended the
Dynamic Marriage class and two consecutive years of marriage
retreats; we always come back renewed, rededicated and resolved to
be better spouses to each other. We have always thought we were
being the kind of spouse that God would be pleased with; however
after attending the retreats; we always see how and where we can
improve and do better.
Married couples have agape
love and plan their lives to bring in joy. We really appreciate that
Robert & Stella; for 10 years; has taken strengthening Christian
marriages as their personal ministry. Every married couple - no
matter how long you've been married - should take their Dynamic
Marriage class and attend the yearly marriage retreats! You'll be a
better spouse for having done so.

"We are newlyweds and it really gave us a great foundation for
how to maintain joy in our marriage."
My husband and I really
enjoyed the retreat! We are newlyweds and it really gave us a great
foundation for how to maintain joy in our marriage. Additionally, as
a psychologist, I really enjoyed the opportunity to have the focus
be on my life and how to intervene on minor issues now so we can
prevent having our marriage severely damaged by relatively
insignificant situations in the future. We also had a great time
getting to know other Christian couples. The fellowship we had with
other Christian couples will also be a great foundation for us.
Thanks so much for this wonderful experience!

Robert and Stella
genuinely care about strengthening Christian marriages! Once again,
this retreat has proven to be a blessing in our lives as husband and
wife. With the theme, You Can Still Have Joy, we learned that
it is our responsibility and our duty to fully implement what God
has created. Keeping the joy in our marriage is a task that we have
to strive for every minute of every day.
Robert and Stella so
clearly outlined that our marriage is God's design and our goal as
Christians is to do all that we can to show God our thanks. We have
been able to use tools immediately that compel the two of us to more
fully appreciate our spouse. The lessons we learned brought us back
to the early days of our marriage and has us enthusiastically
looking forward to our future together. And we look forward to

We can sum up our
experience at the retreat as an invigorating, informative, eye
opener as to what joy truly is an how it can be achieved in your
marriage. We recommend this experience to married couples who are
caught up in that daily routines of life and have forgotten the joy
that they and their spouse once had.

"The class caused us look at ourselves honestly in the mirror and deal
with the real-life issues..."
My wife to be and I
thought we really knew each other inside out until we took the Dynamic
Marriages class at the West End Church of Christ. The class caused us
look at ourselves honestly in the mirror and deal with the real-life
issues that cause most marriages to fail within the first two years.
Within the class we dealt with conflict and the root of what causes
conflict. We also learned that conflict is a good thing (much to our
surprise) as in comparison to withdrawal. Aside from learning each
other and how to have a productive and thriving marriage, we also had
the opportunity to meet other couples and share our experiences with
them. This enabled us to know that we are not the only ones that go
through problems in marriages, but that it actually is a common thread
that we share.
We have gone on to graduate from the class and have taken it a second
time already as a refresher. We are truly committed to the concepts
taught in the class and share our testimony that it truly changed our
life for the better.
together whenever we attend a marriage retreat. It's always good to
hear from couples who have been married for a longer period of time.
And it helps those who are newly married. The retreat always
"reminds" me of why I fell in love with my husband. I leave more in
love and wanting to be a better wife my husband. "You can still have
Joy" will be with me for life because it made me realize that that
is what God wants for us. Marriage is suppose to be Joy ( even when
it's hard). I've learned that it's the hard times we can reflect on
to make us realize what Joy really feels like. You can count on
seeing us each year the retreat takes place!

us as husband and wife."
What surprised us about
this class was the fact that we learned so much about each other in
such a short time. This class truly enriched and developed our
marriage, focusing on God's plan for us as husband and wife. Not only
were we able to increase our intimacy with each other, we also
increased our interaction with other couples who valued their
relationships. Through hard work and prayer, we have gained the tools
necessary to forever aide us in strengthening our marriage. God has
blessed with class with Robert and Stella, who truly care about the
couples that are involved.

marriage that wouldn't necessarily benefit from attending this class.
Instead, we found the course to be very enlightening and nurturing
for our marriage. It's amazing how much we learned about one another,
ourselves, and techniques to maintain a healthy marriage. This course
is a must for married couples everywhere.
