“My wife and I had been in marital counseling for years, and had largely overcome most of the big & painful struggles.  BUT, we felt we were just barely ok, not doing really good or great.  If felt like a slippery slope, like one thing goes wrong and we might be in trouble.  So we went to Martez & Woodrina for marriage life coaching.  They were awesome in helping us both understand what we lacked and how to get it, so that we might become great together.  It was a lot of work, but great stuff.  We even had that one fateful bad event in the middle of our time with them, and they were able to pull us through, and we are stronger because of it.  So we owe a great deal of thanks to them!”

November of 2011 I felt that I couldn't get pass the infidelity I had encounter in our marriage. The church where we partner has a marriage ministry where at that time Martez and Woodrina Layton were the ministry leaders. After attending one of their workshops and finding out that they were marriage coaches, I reached out to them for help.

That was the best thing I could have done.  We have been married almost 21 years. Our marriage is better and stronger than it's ever been. Martez and Woodrina we thank you for DreamBuilders Professional Coaching it saved our marriage. We love you both to life.

Martez and Woodrina Layton are a blessed couple of God! Their obedience to the Spirit is evident in their lifestyle and extends to their life and marriage coaching and counseling sessions.  My wife and I are forever grateful for the opportunity to have crossed paths with them, and our marriage is substantially better because of it.

Prior to beginning our marriage coaching sessions with Martez and Woodrina, our life was plagued by marital discord…everything ranging from infidelity, to unruly children, to unforgiveness.  Martez and Woodrina offered a chance for us to learn how to communicate effectively, discover our love languages and mind-styles, and establish healthy boundaries to help mitigate some of our previous shortcomings. 

We can’t thank you enough for your prayers, your encouragement, and your wisdom. May God continue to enlarge your territory and increase your impact!
