Discovery Weekend is a beautiful encounter of two couple who wanted to get married or discerning to settle down. It is not only abo discovering the self but also to discover more about your partner and above all discover God in one’s relationship. As a couple, we are given time to rally communicate heart to heart and soul to soul. I is beautiful, because we are placed in an environment where we could focus on each other. Before the weekend, I am so excited to prepare for the marriage rather, wedding. But, I am also uncertain if I am prepare enough for the marriage. Here I realized tha God is ans should be the center of a successful relationship. #myforevertalaga! Love, WILSON?ANA
I learned a lot this weekend and we are very thankful for this program. We wish that it will continue for a long time.
It has enlightened us as a couple to share our love to others through Christ.
My biggest takeaway is knowing more about my partner, The weekend strengthened our beliefs.
Love is a decision. The Discovery Weekend helped us to see God’s hands in marriage for all couples. The weekend highlights all the reflection and dialogue. Before DW, I had my worries but God has reassured me more during the weekend. Yes, I would recommend the DW to other couples.
All the sharing and teaching. Helped us relate to the stories and learned stuff to apply to our relationship.
Yes I would recommend the Discovery Weekend. Actually before DW, we almost touched all the issues already with my partner, but DW is way helped us more, pared way parang mas direct.
To God be the Center of our Relationship. It grew our minds as a couple, that it not always a bed of roses, there are ups and downs, that it is not perfect, that there always a kiss and make ups. To be never give up, ash there is God, everything will be okay no matter hard it is. I think after the Discovery Weekend for me, mas nakilala ko and fiancée ko even though were always together, marami pa palang di ko alam sa kanya. It is really recommendable, it really help the couple esp. like us starting, planning to have a family.
How to handle situations. Be love to God. New friends, strengthened relationship as a couple. Enlightened. To fully understand your partner.
We are not an engaged couple but this experience helped us on how we want our lives together will be. DW is an awakening for us because although we talk about some serious things already, the seminar helped us through the help of the Sumpaico’s and the modules dialogue better. After the DW experience made our relationship grow and it has made us realize our vision as a couple. I would recommend this to couples who are talking about engagement or considering settling down but have no definite plan yet.
God as the center of our marriage. Healing of past hurts and better understanding. Sacrament of reconciliation and removing the masks. Happy before, happier with God now! It’s an amazing experience. I felt God’s presence and felt him within us.
God being center. I helped us confirm what we talked about. Confession. It feels lighter and close to God. Every couple needs to go through this for future knowledge.
It was a great experience. Great program / facilitators, I would highly recommend it.
Highly recommended even if not yet engaged or even at an early stage of relationship.
Discovery Weekend allows you a more honest look at your relationship—it is the vulnerably that eventually makes your relationship stronger. We are a stronger couple ready for the next step.
Dialogue was very useful, about exploring our feelings and expressing them so our partner in a non- confrontational setting. We would recommend it to friends.
For me it’s the talk from the speakers and the dialoguing. I learned a lot from them and helped me grow up. It got us to talk about stuff we normally ignore. Couple Dialogue – the one on one with your partner.
Discovery Weekend was a very powerful experience. It helped us acknowledge truths about ourselves and brought our relationship face-to-face with God. The experience has definitely transformed mu perspective of myself and of my partner even though we’ve known each other for more than 12 years and it has introduced as third dimension into our relationship.
I am thankful that we chose to join the Discovery Weekend. The time together to reflect on our relationship and gain a deeper understanding of each other was exactly what we needed prior to our wedding. This weekend affirmed that we made the right choice in each other.
I am leaving the Discovery Weekend with a fiancée who I understand more than before we came in. It helped us by making if easier to discuss our level of faith and how we can put God in the center of our lives. The weekend highlights were the couples you visibly see getting closer. And also, the couples who can see their differences. Both calls will help their own personal growth. The difference of us before and after is the idea that now, even in faith, you both are in the same page. I would recommend the DW to any couple who wants to deeper their understanding for one another.
DW helped me and my partner to fully understand each other and tackle topics that we usually won’t in normal situation. It allows you to focus on your partner and take marriage seriously.
DW allowed me and my partner to be in the right mindset to talk about. Topics concerning our relationship ( that we don’t normally do) and our future married life. It’s been great meeting other couples and hearing their stories, which gave us a sense of community that’s on the same page. We fell closer to each other and the experience has strengthened our relationship with Chris. I strongly recommend DW to couples who are thinking about settling down).
The DW affirmed our decision as a couple to get married. After the checklist exercise regarding our view on issues we got so happy because we scored almost perfect. The DW made us understand more what marriage is all about. It made us appreciate the value of what we are getting into. More than the wedding itself we are looking forward in spending our lives together. I would recommend this DW to others because it will help them reflect and realize some issues. This DW provides an avenue for couples to talk about and different issues and hash it out.
DW – It is highly recommended for couples who are considering marriage. Very insightful.
Thank you! DW seminar made us all the more sure to be with each other. It helped us resolved issues in our relationship that would save us lot of troubles on the future. The highlight of the seminar was answering the couple questionnaire and comparing it with your partner.
What I got form the weekend was that Tina and I got to talk about our plans and viewings on married life. We haven’t had time to talk about I because of the preparations for the wedding. It’s good that we talked about it before we get married. There were times during the weekend where we got into an arguments but that just meant we could apply the techniques taught to us earlier. But through it all it just strengthened our decision to go further into our relationship.. Thanks!
That the presence of God truly is necessary to have a lasting relationship whether as BF-GF or as husband –wife and that we have to give that love back to others. It “forced” us to face inevitable topics as marital life by placing us in an “extraordinary’ situation (where there is no choice but to dialogue). Weekend highlights: the Reconciliation part. Also, the parts where real life couples shared their own experiences. Before the DW, I guess my partner and I were just “all talk” we know how important God was in a relationship and how essential dialoguing is. After DW, we’re become closer and more confident with each other. We were given the chance to actually “walk our talk”. We recommend DW because it truly is a special gift from God.
Importance of Discovery Weekend before marriage is a must. It will guide each couple for preparation of a married life and know the importance of God in the relationship.
My biggest takeaway from the Discovery Weekend is that it’s very very important to dialogue effectively and lovingly with your spouse so important matters that should be talked about won’t turn into unresolved issues. It helped us to be more open and to trust each other more. It affirmed our decision even more that we are the right partner for each other. I recommend DW to EVERY couple out there discerning marriage far them to have more chances of #FOREVER.
We will go out in this room ready to face the married life. This DW encounter help me affirm that I am with the right person. I’ve learn a lot from the topics and our mentors. We get what we paid for.
The Discovery Weekend helped us a lot by understanding ourselves more and understanding our partner. DW serves as the exclamation mark at our conviction that we really are and we really wanted to get married. For me the Saturday session was the highlight of it all. It was the hardest part of the DW. But after that session, all things fall in its rightful place, no more doubts and fears. I would recommend to my friends to have DW experience because this really helps in discerning the life God wants us to pursue. To the admins, the auxiliary couples most specially Tito Jojo and Tita Ditsy, hindi nyo po alam kung gaano niyo po kami natulungan ? I guess this is not goodbye but see you around! Excited na po ako! ?
The Discovery Weekend helped us a lot in confirming our initial decision of getting married but more than this, the weekend strengthened the love we have had for each other. It gave us necessary skills in handling our relationship especially with their dialogue sessions. It helped us gain more insight about the life we are to enter and the courage because of the couple – mentors and new couple friends. Thank you Lord for the Discovery Weekend!
