I’m SO glad we joined BMM! The challenges and conversations are awesome, and my spouse and I are closer now than ever before – if often feels like we’re honeymooning all over again(both emotionally and physically 😉 ) Because of BMM we have been able to start unpacking some heavy baggage and work towards getting rid of it all together. I never thought that was possible until this program. This has been one of those ‘I never knew what I was missing’ things. Thank you for all you do!
“If you want greater connection and intimacy in your marriage relationship, we can speak high enough for how much Austin and Rachel has assisted us!”
“Both my husband and I have gained so much from being a part of Because Marriage Matters. We’ve been married for 5 years and have a very strong marriage, but still have so much to learn! The live Q&A calls have been so much fun, and huge eye openers to us. It’s so freeing to learn to accept yourself as a masterpiece, not something flawed to work through, and also to learn how your spouse thinks and feels. It gives you the ability to truly love them as you were meant to.
Having the BMM community to go to for wisdom, support and prayer requests is like going to a safe, quiet place in the middle of the craziness and apathy or every day life. To put it concisely, a blessing.”
We’ve had some very needed and deep conversations lately. Topics that aren’t fun to talk about, but we both needed to. It has really made me feel closer to him than EVER. I feel like a light bulb has gone off and we’ve opened up a whole new level in our marriage.”
Our biggest breakthrough was quick equals young. It was like a light-bulb came on when we trained on that. As for our marriage, it’s helped us to realize that we aren’t alone in this and we aren’t the only ones going through what we’ve gone through. It’s taught us how to express what we are feeling and why in an appropriate manner that respects your spouse. The support from the Ladies group has been AMAZING too! THANK YOU Austin and Rachel!
BMM has opened new ways of thinking and viewing which we had never thought of before. It has allowed us to learn and grow stronger in our marriage and as individuals. One of the biggest things I have taken from it so far is learning ways to own my emotions. I have been able to pause, process, feel, and allow my response to be graceful and understanding. Before it was easy to be caught up in emotions and blame talk. Now I have learned what it means for both of us to each take 100% responsibility. WONDERFUL!
Our marriage has transformed so much that one of our parents asked us, “Wow, what has made such a difference in your marriage?”
We told them about BMM and they joined, and now experiencing the same results!
We’re so thankful for BMM!
My husband was frustrated about me not being affectionate. I used the line “I’m actually feeling disconnected from you” and gave him a long hug. It worked like a charm? calmed him down and allowed us to have a better dialogue about the matter.
BMM has been a game changer for us. Before we started this program we had no idea the potential our marriage could have. We have always had a good marriage and a strong one but but BMM has really given us the right tools to make our marriage blossom. Both my husband and I have learned a lot of our self and one another, even though we have been together for 13 years. It is an amazing thing to watch your spouse really dive into your marriage and implement what we are learning in BMM. We have talked about topics we have NEVER talked about before. We have been more understanding of each others emotions and the “why” behind how we handle conflict or topics. We are able to talk about our feelings, that we never did before and so much more! We just really are working TOGETHER through everything and pouring out the love we have for one another. This has been such a blessing and SO excited to grow even more with the tools of BMM! Our marriage has changed for the good. Thank you Austin and Rachel!
And I can’t tell you how much it deepened our connection. We are both “polite” and don’t want to complain or cause friction, so sometimes we both had feelings we didn’t share. Your challenge opened up new communication between us. Suddenly it is so much easier, much less scary, to show our feelings and to talk about things we wouldn’t have before.
If you’re like me, the only reason you haven’t joined BMM is because you already know the junk in your life that you refuse to deal with. I knew that getting accountability with Austin would lead to greater accountability and transparency in my marriage and once I had that, joining BMM was just the icing on the cake. Think of it like an extended warranty for you marriage! So what are you wanting for? Join BMM today because the only thing you have to lose is your junk! Step into Freedom today!
I think a lot of middle-aged people assume everything is great in their marriage if they don’t have any, ”big issues”. Alexis and I did not have anything glaring in our relationship however we both knew that we did not have good examples growing up on either side and that we could do better. It was so great for me as a man to find Because Marriage Matters to help me truly communicate and be able to open up and better understand the responses I get from my spouse and all kinds of different situations. When you are truly ready to communicate on a whole new level with your spouse I cannot recommend BMM enough!
We got to do our date night and it was so much fun! Idk why but this date night just felt different. Like it was really purposeful. We had a blast.
The best part of this months challenges- the date night and non sexual touch. (However, it has often led to sexual touch too😅). But it’s been a nice way to connect in the everyday conversations with simple touches saying “I love you and I care.” It’s really meant a lot to me.”
We joined this group Because Marriage Matters. Like most men I(Devin) was very hesitant and prideful. What man wants to admit that he has room for improvement or that he may be failing his spouse in some way or another. However if you truly love your wife, and truly love yourself you would want the BEST marriage possible. We all have faults and we all have areas we need to improve. Whether it be communication or vulnerability or my favorite accepting “Responsibility” and not casting blame or feeling shame. This was scary, but it has been so worth it.
With Austin and Rachel’s teachings and wisdom we have grown to look at each other and love each other a lot in just a few short weeks. The exercises are engaging and enlightening. There is so much logic and truth behind everything we do. It is literally like being at a sermon hearing a message that was seemingly placed just for you. I recommend this for any marriage. Even if your already happy, this will only amplify it. You will be amazed on how much happier you actually could be. Never settle. Because Marriage Matters.
