I am someone captivated with eternity and fixated on living a life that will bear eternal fruit so I’ve reached to live before the One who will evaluate my life in the end. Mike & Anne Rizzo state in Vertical Marriage, "The hour in which we live is not a time to cast off restraint or focus on the temporal; it's a time for husbands and wives to contend for fresh, eternal vision in their marriages." If you are considering marriage never let go of the highest vision, living for the audience of One. This course will give you tools on how to love Him and how to grow in love for one another.

“Mike and Anne are seasoned counselors and friends of the Lord. Premarital counseling was a joy with them, even as we walked through some tough places of the heart. They painted a much-needed, biblical perspective on marriage in light of eternity and our callings to love God first.”
Carl & Ailene
“My wife and I were so glad we did premarital counseling with the Rizzo’s. Our time with them pinpointed areas of weakness and gave us some tools to grow: like resolving conflict and defining the roles in our relationship. Because of these conversations, we went into marriage empowered to move forward as a team.”
Brian & Joannie
“Mike and Anne Rizzo were a well of deep wisdom to drink from as we made huge decisions that greatly impacted our future. They were able to read deeply into our hearts and tell us things that we were thinking and feeling but couldn’t really articulate. Their advice has stuck with us, making our marriage stable and strong, and is still shaping the way we live day by day.”
