I believe that the Before I Do workshop we attended was part of God’s plan for us. We just got to know of it the night before the workshop day when we received an email from Mr. John Ong. We were hesitant at first but since Bong and I were free, we went there with expectant hearts. Oh how we missed our community the moment we stepped in the room. The cordial & happy atmosphere and the very accommodating people made us feel more comfortable. We were very blessed by every talk, every personal sharing of the group and of the speakers. It helped me and Bong realize the value of each other and how the Lord designed us for one another. It was a great blessing that it gave us the opportunity to share more of our thoughts, our expectations for one another and more importantly to recommit and surrender our relationship to Jesus. We can say, that after the workshop, we became more appreciative, loving & patient. Forgiving always and bearing with each other’s weaknesses. As our wedding draws near, we look back and praise God for allowing us to experience His love through the seminar and all the people who worked and prayed during that day. We will carry on the values that we learned in our married life. Praise God!:)
The Before I do Seminar was an eye opener. I came to understand my partner even more but above all, I was able to realize that there is a greater force affecting our relationship and that is God. I have learned that when you put him in the center of your relationship, all else will follow. Indeed, the wedding was the beginning of the marriage; and the marriage is something the couple must constantly work on. There are a lot of factors that affect the marriage but in the end your love for each other must always emerge and the faith in the Lord must always remain. An added bonus in attending this seminar was that aside from all the things we’ve learned, we got to meet new friends.. I do hope there are more seminars like this one.. There were no dull moments and I was even surprised that my usually impatient h2b had a great time in the seminar.. Kudos to the organizers of the seminar =)
We took the Before I Do seminar just a few weeks before our wedding and we’re so glad we did! The speakers were great and their sharings were very “relate-able”. We really enjoyed and learned a lot from the seminar, especially the ones about the importance of prayer in marriage and trusting God completely. During our wedding preparations, we were so worried about our finances and we were discussing whether to push through or postpone with our wedding, but when the speaker talked about offering everything to God and told us to acknowledge that everything is God’s and not ours, we just lifted everything up to the Lord and everything just followed. We also make it a point to pray everyday as a couple and we offer everything for God’s glory. There are times that we have misunderstandings, but looking back at the things we learned at the seminar helps us understand each other and be more patient and loving to each other. We’re really so happy that we attended the seminar and we definitely recommend other couples to invest in their marriage and not just their wedding
We highly recommend the Before I Do seminar not only to those couples preparing for their marriage, but also to those who are already thinking of getting there. Aside from the nice freebie we received, the speakers were really good. The seminar did not only helped us understand each other better, it also reminded us to have a deeper relationship not only with each other, but also with God.
To Jong and to the rest of the team, kudos for always putting service on top of your priorities. God bless!
