“Fusion was a very clarifying experience for my marriage.  I learned that there are always conversations occurring, whether they’re spoken out loud or not.  The training gave us the tools to get clear about where we are and where we’re headed.  It was refreshing to spend time considering what IS working in our marriage and use that as a platform for creating a shared vision.”
-Matt, married 14 years.  Virginia, 2013

“I approached the seminar with some reserve, fearing I was putting too many eggs in one basket.  Was this the answer to my prayers?  Would it be as transformational as the voice in my head was promising?  The short answer is ‘yes.’  Fusion took the destructive momentum my husband and I had been gaining and swung it in the opposite direction!”
-Rachel, married 7 years.  Virginia 2013

“After being married for 5 years & three kids later, we felt impressed that our marriage needed a tune up to work out some kinks in our communications, expectations & connection.   After an engaging two & half day workshop on the oneness of marriage, we are more than glad to have worked out child care & work schedules in order to spend much needed with each other on the core vision of marriage and mutual reflection & encouragement from other couples in the room.  It was weekend of lasting impact.”
-Tim, married 5 years.  Virginia 2013

“Before, I was on the outside looking in at my marriage.  Now, I’m in the marriage, looking at how I can shift, learn and change myself”

“We are beginning a new marriage, on the same team.”
-Patricia, Zambia 2016

“Coming here I thought my spouse was the problem, not me.  I’ve learned something about myself: my beliefs and conversations created conclusions that were false.  I can breathe now.”

‘I had a strategy to offend my spouse just to get a response so he would open up.  I realized I’m the one losing.  Now I have hope for my marriage.  We have the determination to have a happy marriage”
-Joyce, Zambia 2016

“We’d been turning a blind eye to some things, pretending it was OK.  We’ve poured out our feelings to each other and now we have intimacy”
-Bright, Zambia 2016
