"The NWS at First Dallas was exactly what we needed in the early stages of our engagement. We learned how to create a God-inspired marriage by keeping Christ at the center of our daily relationship with each other. Through the testimony of long-time married couples and the real life advice for the inevitable worldly distractions, the NWS gave us an arsenal of tips, tools, and advice we will cling to throughout our marriage to keep it strong. Though engagement is one of the most exciting times of your life, it's also the best time to start building the foundation of a marriage that will make your Heavenly Father proud. The NWS equipped us to start building that foundation."
