What others are saying about Empowering Families:

“This workshop was an eye-opening experience. Sometimes I don’t realize there are many things I can improve on. This class helped me see them.”

“The workshop educators are the best!! Class very informative, 100% participation. The educators made the class very interesting. They gave great examples, and helped my ‘shy’ fiancée to participate. They pointed us in the right direction. They did good role playing to get vital points across. Very energetic, great communicators, so glad I signed up. I’m sure all who attended were helped with their relationship. God bless the educators and their families.”

“We were previously divorced and wanted to take proper steps to ensure I didn’t (we didn’t) make the same mistakes twice.”

“It was very helpful to any couple or single person looking for a relationship.”
