Kyle and Allison, military couple: "A good way for us to have focused and meaningful discussions..."

Kyle: I am currently deployed to Europe, so the questions were a good way for us to have focused, meaningful discussions on some important topics. As we (her more than I) continue to plan our marriage from two different sides of the world, the structured forum to talk about how and what we want our marriage to be was awesome.
I appreciated the time we were able to set aside (not as much as we'd like, but some nonetheless) to talk specifically about our relationship and how we want to grow together.

How it impacted his faith: It continued to reaffirm the important priorities in life and in a relationship. As someone who tends to be task-focused, specifically with work, it is important to always do my best to "keep my priorities straight."
I plan to pray together, church (together as we can), maybe a small group study or one of our own, and projects through our church

Allison: This class helped initiate many important conversations and helped set the foundation for our marriage expectations. We were challenged to talk about various topics that could present issues in marriage, some of which had definitely not come up in our conversations before. This class actually challenged Kyle and I to look deeper into our relationship than I expected.
I definitely appreciated the quick feedback. Kyle and I definitely looked forward to spending some of his quieter weekend time to discuss the assignments.

How it impacted her faith: I think this class helped bring to light how difficult marriage can be at times, and how faith will help us get through those times together. The topics discussing natural family planning also reinforced my desire to try it.
I plan to go to church weekly, go to confession more often, start praying with Kyle.

In our mission statement at we say: “Agape Catholic Marriage Preparation invites couples to a deeper relationship with each other and with Christ, one couple at a time.  Online, on-demand instruction rooted in Saint John Paul II’s Theology of the Body, combined with personalized mentoring from a trained married couple, builds a foundation for a strong, healthy, Christ-centered marriage between a man and a woman.”  Who does that best serve?   From the very inception of serving military couples has always been on our hearts, even offering a military discount.

Wow!!!  Yes, that is the correct word to begin this blog post!  I think I am still in shock!  On the feast of the Sacred Heart of Jesus our country just experienced the overturning of an almost 50-year-old law regarding abortion.  Roe vs. Wade was overturned!

The three day retreat was  focused on resilience in marriage, for couples who have to face the most challenging situations due to their military lives. Of course, we put the accent on the incredible grace of the Sacrament of Matrimony, and the words of Christ, "Without me, you can do nothing." Each of the four sessions was filled with laughter, some tears, a lot of friendship, and prayer. The awesome settings of the luxury resort allowed each couple to take a break from the crude reality, rest from daily stress and engage in a deep dialog. Father offered the Sacrament of Reconciliation, and we celebrated the Ascension mass facing the East China Sea. A romantic dinner, the surprise of a photographer to take souvenir pictures of each couple, the beautiful smiles of all the Japanese personnel, made this retreat unforgettable! All couples were very happy and "recharged" at the end of the retreat today. Many came to us, eyes filled with tears, to thank us. They said that they never experienced something so spiritual before, something really focused on their own marriage, their difficulties, their relationship. They all said that they had learned much, about their faith, and also about ways to make their marriage better. Once couple laughed explaining how they were trying to improve their communication with their newly learned skills! All in all, it was well worth it! and tomorrow, one of the couples will take a day off to help us discover the beauty of the island!
