The biggest breakthrough came for us when we learned how to communicate more effectively by using the tool called the “Assertive Formula”. It taught us how to bring up an issue without stirring up defensiveness or fights, and we actually resolve the issue like we are on the same team. The videos supported us in applying the tools to our unique relationship. Kevin Miller (Growing Deeper Marriage Study)
Going to see Abigail & Scott was so easy; they were welcoming, caring, and relatable. I am normally very reserved and shy but they allowed me to really open up. We have learned how to communicate in a healthy way and love each other in a way that we didn’t know was possible before. Our relationship is stronger because of coaching...now we recognize parts of each other’s personality and quirks we didn’t know existed. Julee (Coaching client)
I loved the time to apply what we were learning during the workshop. I enjoyed the videos...great introductions to the topics. The teachings were the perfect balance of humor, information, scripture and challenge.Bill and Kelisa (Growing Strong Workshop)
I think that all couples long for some sort of mentoring to help create a strong marriage, especially if you did not grow up in a Christian home or come from an unstable family-of-origin. I loved the fact that all sessions started with bringing God into the equation first (going vertical) and were based on Scripture. I can also see that Scott and Abigail started with that equation themselves because they seem to have been truly inspired by God to share what they have learned to help other couples. Deena and Gary (Growing Strong Workshop)
