Marriage Coaching and Premarital Counseling

Marriage is not a sprint - it is a marathon. Marriage maintenance is to your marriage just as vehicle maintenance is to your car. If you ignore it eventually it will completely break down. This is true for every marriage. There is no perfect marriage but there are two people who are perfectly aligned in their purpose and passion in their marriage.

Martez and Woodrina have been a major blessing to my wife and I. They have helped us build a solid foundation on the importance of marriage and family. We are beyond grateful for the opportunity to participate in their successful Married 4 Life Walk. The Laytons are always making sure we are utilizing the amazing skills we have been taught.

Coaches Martez and Woodrina Layton have coached me and my husband through the most painful experience of our life. After 20 years of marriage, I was shattered in discovering my husband's infidelity. [The Layton's] non-judgmental approach coupled with their expertise and spiritual connection to God made the outcome powerful. They not only saved our marriage but also gave me the strength and courage to know and understand my own worth. Martez is not only challenging and insightful, but also patient and understanding, with remarkable instincts and knowledge. The skills and concepts we learned will be invaluable for the rest of our
lives. Our experience was transformational, and our marriage was restored and empowered.

Couples’ Coaching

Relationship Reset

Wondering when and how you started disliking your spouse? Not feeling the love and commitment in the union you two promised would last forever? Or stuck trying to figure out how you ended up here – this dull place where the fun, intimacy and sex has vanished.

If you answered yes to any of this, don’t be ashamed because you’re not alone. Coping with hectic schedules, taking care of kids and strolling through the monotony of the daily grind is likely what got you here. And a reset is what will get you through the hardest, most difficult times in your marriage.

In just 90 minutes, Coach Martez will help you hit the reset button on your relationship, teleporting you back to the butterflies of when you two first laid eyes on each other. Together, we’ll uncover the issues threatening to weaken your bond and create an assessment on how you two can move forward – stronger than ever.

No more wasting precious time going to bed angry, arguing over trivial things and discussing your problems with clueless friends and family members.

It’s time to hit the reset button on your relationship so you can get back to the love that connected you two in the first place.

Premarital and Marriage Coaching

Champion the Courtship

Whether you’ve yet to walk down the aisle or you’ve been married for years, there comes a time in every marriage where you have to champion the courtship. You see, the courtship is what brought you two together and leaning into it is exactly what will keep you and your partner together.

Courting is what people call the “honeymoon phase” of the relationship where everything your partner does and says is cute and exciting. But sometimes, in marriage, the spark that used to ignite during courtship fizzles out, leaving you feeling more like roommates than a loving couple.

And those are the tough times you can count on our very own Coach Martez to guide you through. So whether you want some premarital advice on how to keep the love flowing before and after the wedding excitement wears off or are in need of some coaching on how to rekindle the flame in your marriage, you can count on us to give you steps, tools and straight talk to do precisely that.

Our Champion the Courtship program includes 8 hours of sessions concluding with a state-approved certificate of completion. For couples already married, these sessions will champion your courtship by reminding you why you fell in love, returning you to that butterfly-induced state when you couldn’t get enough of each other.
