For Price Comparison Purposes only!
We have done some homework for you. After four years of conducting Weekend Marriage Intensives, it occurred to us that we should see what other Weekend Marriage Intensives are available around the country. In a one hour search on the web, we found five other Weekend Intensive style Marriage Weekends. Here is a summary of the cost for those five Weekend Marriage Intensives. Note that the prices also do not include accomodations. After noting the price comparisons, be sure to click on the link that takes you to over 200 testimonies of couples who have experienced a Weekend Marriage Intensive.

IN-HOME PRIVATE VISIT
With Joel and Kathy
Private "In Home" Marriage Help and Mentoring
For some couples, it may be more "doable" to have us (Joel and Kathy) come to your home to meet with you one on one. We RECOMMEND that you first attend a Weekend Marriage Intensive but for some people, the cost of lost work time traveling by air or car to Palm Coast is too much. If this is the case, you may request an in-home visit. Joel and Kathy will come to your home for four days, for a cost of $2500 plus our travel expenses. (Flying in coach or driving when it is approximately 200 miles or less from Palm Coast). If you do not have private sleeping space in your home, you may pay for us to stay in a hotel. We will eat at your home or anywhere that you would like to treat us to. You will pick us up at the airport and return us to the airport on the final day. Or you might prefer to pay for a rental car from the hotel. Whichever you prefer is fine with us.
You will have our full attention for the four days minus a few hours that we conduct group marriage phone calls. In the average four day period, we conduct the calls once or twice. Pre-requisite requirement is that you have both watched the 12 hour DVD set and read both books before we arrive. You will also each write up a detailed outline of the marriage issues and history to send to us in advance so that we can make best use of our time together.
If you need different days, then call us to see if we can accommodate your schedule. Depending on the situation, we might travel the day before and/or after, making our time away from home a possible five or six days. We will not charge for this extra travel time. However, if we can arrive around noon on day one and leave around 6 pm on day 4, that is what we will do. When you call, we will determine the arrival and departure details for your given situation.

A Home Visit Testimony with Joel and Kathy!
It was wonderful to have Joel and Kathy in our home this past August after going to the June intensive. They were a lot of fun to be around and we really enjoyed their company. They were also able to get a better perspective on our marriage by seeing different struggles in our home life and in our unique situations of our daily life.
The example of a good marriage being played out in our home in front of our eyes was encouraging. We saw Joel and Kathy display togetherness which is something that is currently a struggle in our marriage. I, (Macy), remember saying to Kathy how free she seemed to be when with Joel and how they truly worked together. I told her I want to be like that with Leon.
There were times when we needed help and in the midst of a situation, they were there to walk us through the process. They walked us through feelings and frustrations. I, (Macy), remember coming into the room needing help and feeling frozen and not knowing what to do or say at the moment. It was amazing to have the support of Joel and Kathy there to show us how to respond as initiator/responder and to have a safety net during a tense and touchy time.
The humor and lightheartedness they brought also to the table during those times helped to bridge a gap and move us forward. The kids also remember them being in our home. I still hear our six-year-old talk about their visit here and how they came to the amusement park with us.
They were also there when a devastating phone call came to our home involving our daughter. Joel helped to coach Leon with how to comfort me (Macy)and Kathy was a great source of strength to me.
We are grateful for this ministry and how the Lord led us to them. We are learning and growing through this restoration and healing process. Their consistency and faithfulness to us as a couple has been such an answer to prayer. We are praying that this time next year we will have a testimony of healing and wholeness.
Leon and Macy
