October 7th, Samuel and Florence, SC: I didn't expect it to be this thorough. It was very personal.
His:"It was just what we needed. I could not attend a traditional marriage prep class due to my hectic work schedule and also we had a cross-country move. Although it was all online it was very informative as our instructors drew from their own life and theology. I appreciated that this course was tailored to fit us. I didn't expect it to be this thorough. It was very personal.The thing that really stuck with me is actually the story of Adam and Eve and how it can still apply to modern day times."
Her: "I found this class very insightful, and as just as informative, if not more than if we were in a traditional classroom setting. Also our instructors responded to our homework right away and answered any of our questions in a timely manner."
Both: "We pray that we will continue to grow as a couple and also as a couple with Christ. That he will guide us and protect us."

Both: ''It helped us appreciate each others opinions on several important marriage topics. We were patient with each other and completed the marriage prep as a team by communicating. We truly enjoyed answering all the questions and learning more about ourselves and about you two as well! Thank you so much!"
October 9th, Juwen and Catherine, Atlanta, Georgia: Straight forward course
His: "I am a new believer and am still learning/refining my skills in the church therefore this course allowed me to acquire yet another skill set. I want to do more reading of the Scripture, help as a Eucharistic Minister, and possibly choir."
