"I wouldn't have said our marriage was in trouble, but there were some things I wanted to work on personally to enrich it. I went in 100% to work on me, in fact my husband didn't even attend it with me, but it has made a world of difference. The facilitators were always prepared for a great group discussion. The discussion was where I learned so much. Anyone can read the manual, but the group discussion was what hit home for me. I implemented the strategies I learned, but more importantly I had the Spirit with me as I made an effort to be a better wife. Our marriage has been even better since this! Everyone should take this class whether you think you need it or not."

“Before taking the self-reliance: starting your business class, I was skeptical of it being too 'churchy' and less practical. I’m very serious about my business and don’t like wasting time of 'fluff.' I was pleasantly surprised to learn (even after the first class) so many valuable skills and systems to implement in my business right away.
In 12 weeks I was able to take a new business idea into this class and create a game plan to implement and execute it. The results have been incredible, way better than I ever could’ve done alone.
It was a helpful resource to have the manual to discuss relevant topics, a group to be accountable to, to hear the struggles of other class members and share triumphs in our own businesses each week.
If you’re on the fence about joining this class, to see if this is for you, just go to the first class. You’ll know right away if you could benefit from it."
I have made some significant changes in the way I do business. I now know how to include the Lord in my daily work and qualify for His blessings and guidance.
