We came into their training a broken, hurting and angry couple and within 2 days we were able to understand why and how we communicated the way we did. We were carrying luggage from our pasts into our marriage. I never knew the depths of how my lack of communication skills made it hard for my husband to trust me because he felt no respect! We left there with a newness in our relationship and a love on a deeper and more intimate level, that I never thought possible!”

It is one of the healthiest things you can do for your relationship. David and Amy walk the walk, they know what they’re talking about. Anyone attending their classes will benefit tremendously from it.”
~ married 23 years

“Creating Intimacy and Respect is built from a lifetime of David and Amy’s individual experiences and what they have experienced through their own trials and happiness together in their own marriage.

Message from Dan Dean, Sr. Pastor @ Heartland Church & Singer for Phillips, Craig & Dean

“It has been my sincere pleasure to watch God at work in the marriage of David and Amy Ensminger. What was once headed for destruction has been healed, restored and greatly blessed. That I am now able to witness the healing and restoration they help to facilitate in the marriages of others is an incredible blessing. I recommend that couples in distress, as well as couples who want to avoid making the kinds of common mistakes that damage even good marriages, avail themselves of the opportunity to learn and utilize the many valuable skills and tools David and Amy are ready and willing to impart.”
