This past Saturday, I spent the day with Doug and Sissy Pitcher for a "Battle Ready" pre-marital boot camp. They covered many topics like healthy conflict resolution, intimacy topics, financial overview, love languages, and communication. I learned how my finance thinks with his "waffle" mind set and how my "spaghetti" mind set can drive him crazy. I would highly recommend this course to newly engaged or committed couples. You will learn something you did not know about each, I can guarantee it.

Wow, oh wow, where do I even start? From the very first Love: INSANITY vs. INSIGHT session to the very last, I have been hooked! I never thought I could learn so much about the in's and out's of relationships, what I should expect from relationships, and why couples act and react in the ways that they do.
Doug and Sissy were absolutely awesome, and I can not recommend them highly enough. Their dynamic is awesome, and these two are very sweet and sincere people who are very driven to help couples succeed and survive! I loved them, they were absolutely phenomenal! They were so good, in fact, I wanted them to come to my church and give their series there! I feel like if everyone knew what these two know and what they teach, relationships could change for couples everywhere!

It was a day well spent. Great Godly reminders and lessons on how to be Christ like husbands and wives. My fiance was not raised in church so it was really interesting/ informational for him. Led to a good dialogue between us and is definitely a good foundation for our upcoming marriage and life.

We truly enjoyed everything covered at our pre-marriage boot camp. Some sticky situations were brought to life when we didn't have a resolution to them & we now know how to handle conflict on topics that once seemed impossible to fix. Thanks for really opening our hearts and eyes to what our potential relationship could become and how to truly work as a team. I highly recommend seeking out Doug & Sissy for help through anything and to prepare you for any storm.

My fiancé and I were really intentional on wanting to do pre-marital counseling. We looked at several services, even looked into the church we attend. However, we met Doug at the Bridal Extravaganza Summer 2018.
While I was searching, we were subscribed to them and received an email about an upcoming date. The price was ONLY $35 just to register for an 8-hour session...and honestly, it was WELL WORTH it. My fiance didn't even know until the day of we would get a $60 fee off our marriage license (which is just an added bonus). By surprise, we were actually the only couple there, and Doug and Sissy really were hospitable, kind, and were passionate about what they are doing. It felt like we had our own personal session. We recommend this to any newly engaged couples, married couples, and even couples who are pursuing each other.
Although it was an 8-hour session, the time went fairly quick and we each gained a new perspective on the mind of a male/female and of our relationship. There is so much I can say about this couple and the pre-marital session, but it is different when you actually experience it.
Even in arguments now, we really try to include what we were taught in this session. Which really has helped our communication with each other and how fast to get out of the "crazy cycle." Don't know what that is? You will when you go to counseling with them! :) Thanks again so much for your support in our relationship and our marriage. We are truly grateful we took this class.

This pre-marital counseling was extremely informative and professional while gently bringing things to light. They were both very polite and accommodating to our schedule. When we felt we needed a little bit more guidance they set up another meeting to discuss some concerns.

The couple was very enjoyable and professional. There were some aspects of the evaluation that I thought were incorrect from the actual test point but that did no impact their overall level of service and the experience provided.

My fiance' and I took this class last weekend. It was fantastic! It had REAL examples of situations that come up in REAL life, so the strategies they offer can be applied to things that actually happen to us on a daily basis. Doug and Sissy genuinely care about each participant and helping them have the best marriage they can. We have applied what we learned during the class many times this week to our daily lives and we are beyond thankful for their guidance and wisdom. No Plan B!

We loved our pre-marital classes! Sissy was very patient and made us both feel comfortable and safe expressing our thoughts. We walked away with very useful tools to strengthen our communication, listening habits and relationship. I would highly recommend all couples to take these valuable classes with Pitcher Ministries.

Doug and Sissy do a great job of walking through so many elements that are important to a successful marriage. They were open, transparent, and honest with us about their journey and lessons learned. We both left feeling like our toolbox was full and ready to help us build our foundation and future.
