With the first "ring" of the alarm, there’s already a mad rush to get the day started.
You quickly try to squeeze in some personal prayer time before the kids start tugging at you about what they want for breakfast.
By the time you reach the kitchen, your husband is on his way out the door to beat rush hour traffic after giving you a quick kiss on the cheek.
While lingering on that last thought,
you think about the past few months of your marriage…

Frequently Asked Questions
It honestly depends on how much time you have to dedicate to Abundant each week.
There are 30 lessons total, split into 6 modules. Each lesson is between 10-20 minutes long and most include homework exercises to do with each other.
Many couples finish the entire course within 3 months, doing an average of 2-3 lessons per week. We encourage you to take your time and spend more time on lessons that speak to you more powerfully.
Many couples go through the course again after they have finished it the first time and find that they get even more out of it the second time!
But remember that you have lifetime access to the course, so you can go at your own pace and come back to the lessons as many times as you need.
This can still work! Maybe it's just what your marriage needs.
One of the fundamental principles of the program is that you can't change someone else; you can only change yourself. (Okay, that's a principle of life in general!)
Even if your spouse doesn't want to actively participate, you will learn simple and effective ways that you can change. And when you change yourself for the better, you change your marriage for the better.
So please be encouraged that you can improve your marriage by focusing and working on yourself and join us in Abundant!
We have worked with MANY husbands, wives and couples who are not Catholic. We love you and respect you!
While Abundant is completely Catholic and we don't hide or "water down" what the Catholic church teaches, non-Catholics whom we have worked with have told us that they feel very comfortable in this course. We are not here to judge your beliefs! We are here to help you open yourselves to God's grace in your marriage to find the peace and joy that he wants to give you! You will find that the course is heavily rooted in Scripture (while also drawing inspiration and insight from other sources as well!)
We would be honored to serve you and help you build the marriage you dream of on the foundation of our common faith in Christ Jesus and his Word in Scripture.

We have worked with hundreds of engaged couples to prepare them for the sacrament of marriage.
While Abundant does not replace your marriage preparation, it is a great supplement to it. In fact, Abundant is much more comprehensive than most marriage preparation programs. You will go so much deeper and learn so many more practical tools and skills that will set your future marriage off on the right foot.
Abundant is designed primarily for already married couples, so you will need to "translate" some of the things in the course as relating to your future marriage and not to your current relationship. (Basically, Module 4 is all about your sexual relationship. Learn the theological insights, but save the practical application for after the wedding night! 😉)
If you have not yet done so, be sure to check with your local parish or diocese to make sure you fulfill the marriage preparation requirements required by them.
There is no "behind"!
The course is self-paced and you will have lifetime access.
If life throws you a curveball and you need to step back from Abundant temporarily, you can pick right back up where you left off at any time. Just keep making the effort and trust in God's timing!
Absolutely! (That is so generous. There is a couple who is very blessed to have you in their lives! ❤️)
Just purchase the course and then contact us to transfer it to the person you want to give it to. We can work with you to make sure that the details are communicated to the lucky couple in the best way or at the right time.
You have access to the Abundant course for life!
You will always be able to come back to the course, review any of the videos, worksheets and resources inside the Abundant course.
Plus, any couple who purchases Abundant is also welcome to be lifetime members of our exclusive Abundant Facebook group, where couples from around the world encourage and support each other in their journeys to live abundant marriages. We actively participate in the group as well, so it's a great way to connect and stay in touch with us!

Private Facebook Group:
you will also get access to a private Facebook Group specifically for Abundant couples where you can ask questions, seek advice, and be part of a supportive and like-minded community of Catholic couples.

We created a new and effective way to help you find peace and connection in your marriage. Here’s how we are different from marriage counseling and intensive in-person retreats:
Abundant is on-demand and self-paced so it works for your busy life.
On a personal note...
We remember how hard it was when our marriage hit a low point. Nathan's job was sucking the life out of him--while also not quite covering our expenses--and we had recently moved across the country with our two young girls. We were figuring out how to homeschool while trying to get settled into our new community, and we were still reeling from a tragic death and a dramatic divorce on Sarah's side of the family. We were stressed about everything. Our own romance had withered away, and we were in survival mode.
Worried as we both were about the future, we were dealing with our anxieties separately. Nathan gave all his energy to his work--at home, he had withdrawn emotionally and had nothing to give. Sarah was trying to hold it all together with the household and kids on her end, and we were not connecting. It was a dark and lonely time for us, and our kids definitely felt the tension in our home as well.
We knew that this was not good enough, and we were not willing to settle for living in survival mode for years on end. We were determined to get our joy back, so we took action. When we learned the practical skills that brought more peace, joy, togetherness, and romance back into our marriage, it was like a breath of fresh air!
We went from passing like ships in the night, barely making eye contact during the day, to warm daily hugs, bright smiles, complimenting and thanking each other all the time, creating a clear vision of our future together that excited us both, and dancing with each other in our kitchen after putting the kids to bed. We have confidence in our marriage, knowing we are on the right track. That feeling of being weighed down and spinning our wheels has been replaced by a sense of freedom and profound peace.
We want you to feel that, too! That's why we've made it our mission to pass on what we've learned--because the ripple effect of one joyful, vibrant Catholic couple living their vocation well has an impact that will only be fully known in Heaven!
God wants you to have an abundant marriage.
We can teach you the practical skills you need to open yourselves up to His grace!
