Rebecca Petersen recently posted this about the online eCourse on facebook:

Wow, Rev. Dr. Frank Nelson! Your session is like a superior coaching session to perform at maximum level in our relationship and marriage!! We were a little intimidated when we started this adventure. Would we find out we're not as compatible as we think we are? Would we discover issues we couldn't overcome? WHAT A BREATH OF FRESH AIR. Your course hit on so many topics that we hadn't considered, but it was not scary or intimidating. We are absolutely delighted to have had the privilege to participate in this course and we're looking forward to using your suggestions for any issues in the future. Thank you so much for offering such an amazing - and convenient - course.

We sincerely enjoyed the guided discussions throughout this course and are pleased to announce that we have successfully completed all of them. Kevin and I have agreed that we went into this course expecting minimal change and came out with an entirely new understanding of what we want and need for our marriage and for each other! This course was fun and had a lot of discussions that honestly, we probably would never have had prior to marriage. I will definitely be recommending this course to future friends and family who plan on marriage in hopes that they can come out of this experience happy and ready for their future just as we are. Thank you so very much! Read less

Choosing Rev Frank as our officiant was on of the best decisions we made. Choosing to do the premarital counseling was priceless. It really helped us become a stronger couple. We still refer to his lessons to this day. I highly recommend doing the sessions. It also allowed him to really get to know us and visa versa. He took actual statements we made in our sessions and included them in the ceremony. He used our own words to draft our vows. Which made it very personal and unique and saved so much time from doing it ourselves. I would recommend his services to anyone looking for an officiant that goes above and beyond.

We received countless compliments from family and friends who were so moved by our wedding ceremony. Several even told us it was the best, most special wedding they'd ever been to. We owe so, so much of that to Rev. Frank. Thanks goes to Rev. Frank for orchestrating, planning and leading a beautiful ceremony. He also took the time to know us and created a celebration that fit who we are. It was a lovely, memorable, special day - more than we had even hoped for.

We also met with Reverend Frank several times for pre-marriage coaching. It was a great experience. We were thankful for the opportunity to have some important discussions prior to our marriage. It also allowed us to get to know Reverend Frank (and him to know us) prior to the ceremony, making the day even more special. Working with Rev. Frank was one of the best decisions we made about our wedding!

Choosing Rev. Dr. Frank for our wedding was one of the easiest decisions we had throughout wedding planning! He was so easy to work with and made everything from the marriage preparation classes to the vows very personal. He made our ceremony a dream come true - he took pieces of our personalities and made a very special, memorable ceremony. Rehearsal was perfect - taking the stress out of our big day knowing exactly what to expect. We had numerous people compliment us on the ceremony and Frank's services!! We couldn't have chosen anyone better and we highly recommend him for your marriage preparation and ceremony!!

While my husband, Mike, and I are both spiritual people, we are not very religious. Many of our family members and friends are so I thought finding an officiant who would truly understand and embrace our unique chemistry as a couple while still honoring the faith and beliefs of our guests would be a difficult task. Since we were on a strict budget and wanted our officiant to also be able to do premarital counseling with us, our options were limited. We found a handful of officiants that piqued our interest and set up appointments to meet with a few of them. Rev. Frank was the first officiant we met and, after sharing our story and vision for our ceremony with him over a cup of coffee, immediately cancelled our appointments we had scheduled with the others. Mike and I both very much connected with Rev. Frank and left that first meeting feeling extremely excited about having him marry us. Our entire experience with him far exceeded everything we had hoped for as we prepared to embark on our new journey together as husband and wife. Rev. Frank picked up on the tiniest details during our conversations with him over the few months leading up to our wedding day and incorporated those, along with so many other special elements, into our ceremony. All of our guests commented on what a genuinely beautiful and unique ceremony it was, many saying they had never seen anything like it and it was the best they have ever been to. Mike’s best man made a point to share these words between tears during his toast at the reception: “You are a truly anointed man in Christ and did a fantastic job. I’ve been to a few weddings that were not at churches and it's 'hummana hummana, hummana hummana, hummana hummana, I do, I do, rings, bar'. What I witnessed today was truly amazing. I haven't cried this much since Old Yeller."
Thank you, Rev. Frank, for making our wedding day the absolute BEST day of our lives and one Mike and I (and our family and friends) will remember and cherish forever!

Rev. Dr. Frank was such a delight to work with! We had the opportunity to do premarital counseling with him before our wedding and I'm so glad we did. He helped us learn so much not only about ourselves but about our relationship and how to keep it growing in the right direction. It made the wedding ceremony so personalized since we got to know him over the months prior. We had so many complements on our wedding day. Everyone absolutely loved him and continue to talk about how great he did! He was so professional and made the ceremony funny yet very tasteful. It was the best day of our lives and we're so glad he was such a big part of it!
