FROM SALT LAKE CITY, UT :      We found the "Marriage Rescue" weekend online and this was the best thing we have ever done for our marriage!  The entire weekend was amazing as it brought all of us together as a group.  We felt like we had known the leaders and the other couples for years.  My husband  and I came with an incredible amount of hurt and anger, but we left with an amazing amount of hope. We know we now have the tools to start a journey that is going to take us to a new level of intimacy we have never known.  We have also been doing Life Coaching with Al & Pam individually and are looking forward to doing Marriage Coaching with them starting soon.  The amazing part is that we are doing this from our home in Utah and they are are Oregon.  We live in the mountains so this is easier for us than driving into the city.  Most importantly, we are doing the work we needed to save our marriage.

  "Men's Jump Start Recovery Workshop"

FOR MEN WITH SEXUAL ADDICTION

  • Lust / Fantasy / Objectification
  • Pornography / Masturbation
  • Affairs / Strip Clubs / Prostitutes 

Located in beautiful Portland, OR. is a place committed to compassionate care, that insures confidentiality and anonymity. A place where you will be met with acceptance and understanding.  In this place you will no longer be alone, instead you will find mercy and grace.  Here you can face the truth, uncover the root causes and experience healing.  Dayspring is a place where you can recover with others as we treat one another with respect and understanding along with firm accountability, support and confrontation when necessary. 

The "Jump Start workshop is designed as a concentrated launch to the process of recovery for individuals in the critical beginning stage of recovery.  It will provide the attendees with a strong foundatiional base, for their ongoing recovery process, while abbreviating the overall time by several months.  This program is a fast start, not the complete process or the finish.  This Intensive Workshop can be a significant event in breaking the bondage of the addiction, and give you an immediate taste of victory and the necessary "ray of hope" that promises you truly can WALK FREE! 

Our approach consists of a combination of instruction, writing exercises, small group processing and group activities. The format uses both didactic (teaching) and experiential (role playing) modalities. There will be various assignments given, both for individuals, and/or couples to complete, and some assignments will utilize the small group process. (Individual or couples coaching will not be part of the workshop).                       

At Dayspring, we see shame as "Soul Murder" and this can destroy the very core of an individual or a marriage. This is a spiritual issue and God is truly the antidote to this deep seated problem. However, we believe that there is no situation that cannot be healed!           

This workshop is designed as a concentrated launch to the process of recovering from betrayals, including the discovery of pornography use and/or other behaviors that threaten the marriage. These "other" issues that have created "intimacy conflict" may be anger, dishonesty, control and manipulation, silence and perhaps the most destructive, apathy.                                        

NOTE:  One of our priority goals is that no one be denied this help because of financial constraints.  

Please call or email Al Faatz if finance is a problem and we will do our best to work with you!                            

Presenters:  Al & Pam Faatz, Founders & Directors. Marriage & Family Educators, have presented Dayspring's Intensives for neary two decades.  Their passion is to help individuals, marriages and

families acquire not only the tools, but also the direction and understanding to realize their best

lives together.

FROM DENVER, COLORADO:  

"We flew to Portland from Denver to attend the "Marriage Rescue" Weekend. It was so powerful that we stayed for an extra five days to do additional coaching sessions with Pam and Al. Those eight days in Portland saved our marriage! It was worth every dollar we spent and it was the least expensive of the three Intensive choices we found online.  We were able to do ongoing sessions, Janice individually with Pam and Bruce individually with Al via the telephone from our home in Denver. We also did our Marriage Coaching, alternating with Al and Pam on a weekly basis following  the intensive. The team concept worked well because both our Coaches and the two of us were all speaking truth. It was hard work and we really needed to prioritize our time, but we've been amazed at how quickly the changes started happening. This gave us the incentive to keep going.  We had tried Marriage Counseling before but without the knowledge and tools from the Weekend Intensive, we were not making any progress and finally gave up. We are truly blessed to have found Dayspring!

INTENSIVES - WORKSHOPS

  • Life change usually comes as a result of a crisis, deep pain, or an unquenchable  desire to experience more peace, love & joy in their intimate relationships.
  • We were all created to experience these feelings but many have never enjoyed the reality of living in honest and intimate relationships because of being wounded. 
  • When the pain or desire hits that "set point" of "that's it!", "I can't" or "I won't" - then, there

          is potential.  CHANGE CAN THEN HAPPEN!  ARE YOU READY FOR CHANGE?

"Love for a Lifetime" weekend  worked  for us!

This can be your breakthrought to freedom, peace, intimacy and more!  While this will not be the "end all" solution to your issues that  are keeping you from living a free and victorious life - it can be exactly what you need at this poiint in your life, your marriage or your career. 


The thirty day program works best as an individual process for both men or women.  If the struggles are within the context of a marriage, we strongly recommend that both spouses individually do the 30 day intensive.  This will prepare them to be ready for a transformation of their relationship!

  "Women's Jump Start Recovery Workshop"

(continued from above)   ​I did lose my job and feared I may never work in this field again, but when I made decisions to change,  have integrity, learn how to truly love myself, shed some life-long very unhealthy habits and become a true partner, life did begin to change.  I did accept a job offer in another state in my chosen field.  I was however now a changed man   In my marriage, my relationships with my children and the people I served,  I could now be real, honest and truly love others for the first time in my life.  I will be forever indebted to that place called Dayspring.  I AM A PASTOR.

You somehow know that what's taken years to "get here" will be a long road to recovery.  You feel desperate, helpless and hopeless.  You're afraid that you may lose everything - your wife, your kids, your job - the list goes on. You need something faster - a "Jump Start"

The most damaging issue that often brings a couple to the place of despair ​is they may be thinking . . . "No other couple is as bad as us!"   This is toxic shame.

Located in the Pacific Northwest is a place where you can experience compassion, confidentiality and anonymity.

A place where you can face the truth, clean out the wound, experience a healing period, gain more productive

tools for a new beginning - and have support in the process. Dayspring is that safe place!               

Our Intensives are:  2 days, 10 - 15 hours;  they are an intensive educational workshop;  they are not a fancy retreat

at a facility that costs a month's income to attend.  Do your research - you will find that our program is very comprehensive but costs a fraction compared to others.  If you really are ready for change, you will be rewarded.

COSTS:   COUPLE'S Workshops:  $499. per couple

FROM PORTLAND, OR:

 ​"My life, my marriage, my family, and my career..." -  SAVED!   I am a professional who loves people.  I was at the top of the ladder in my field.  I had just passed the half-century mark and I felt like I owned the world.  But then, suddenly one day my world came crashing down!  I feared I would lose everything - wife, family and career.  I was referred to Dayspring by a friend who had gone through their program.  In my hopeless and helpless state I went to see "Coach Al" for an "Intake" session.  

Al told me it would not be easy, but if I was really serious about a true healing, and really kept my commitment to do the work, it would really work for me too.  I cried.   I finally believed there was HOPE

for me and my family!

i DEFINITELY GOT A GREAT "JUMP START" AT THE MEN'S INTENSIVE.  My attending it first gave my wife hope!  Our next step was for both of us to attend the Dayspring program for one year. 

(The good news is continued below)

Men's  "Freedom"  Weekend  Workshop

NOTE: This "LOVE FOR A LIFETIME" workshop can give you the equivalent of six months of weekly marriage counseling or marriage coaching.  It has been the catalyst for immediate change in the majority of marriages we have worked with. 

The  Dayspring Intensives  are designed for those who desire a place to get immediate help.  They can be a brief weekend or a custom designed block of time for an individual or couple that can work miracles - for those who are willing and ready to do the work! 

 The  Dayspring Workships  are a 10 - 15 hour weekend event scheduled periodically for Men, Women & Couples who desire to make change happen in their life,marriage and family.

A message to all you men from Director Al: 

You and I  are called  by God to be the priest, provider and protector of our families.  This means that we lead by example, so it is really our job to take the first step, get the help we need and  make the changes in ourselves, with help from God and others.  It is then that we have the right and responsibility to ask our wives to join us in the recovery journey together.  Please, do not wait until your relationship is in crisis, reach out for help now!  Should you choose to wait, it would be prudent for your wife to set boundaries and take action to protect herself and your children from your unhealthy choices.  

Do the right thing and God will honor and bless you.

FROM IDAHO:​  I came to this weekend not knowing what to expect and not knowing if this would really be helpful for me,  My husband had just told me about his years of using pornography.  I was shocked because we are a Christian family with good values. The information I took away has  given me such hope - knowing this was not my fault, that it happens to so many good men, but that there is a program available to help both my husband and myself.  He has promised to attend the Men's Intensive and to do "Purity Coaching with "Coach Al" via skype.  I will be working on my boundaries and my unhealthy codependency habits that have enabled the slow deterioration of our marriage.  I would recommend this program to anyone who has pornography or other issues in their  home.

Located in beautiful Portland, OR. is a place committed to compassionate care, that insures confidentiality and anonymity. A place where you will be met with acceptance and understanding.  In this place you will no longer be alone, instead you will find mercy and grace.  Here you can face the truth, uncover the root causes and experience healing.  Dayspring is a place where you can recover with others as we treat one another with respect and understanding along with firm accountability, support and confrontation when necessary.

FROM GRESHAM, OR:  I attended the Women's weekend intensive because a close friend had

shared how she found help at Dayspring with restoring her relationship with her father who had molested

her as a small child.  I thought I was the only one in my circle of friends that had experienced this trauma.

 At the weekend event I learned how common childhood sexual abuse is and that so many victims never

find freedom from the shame that it causes in the child.  I now realize that I can be free from so many

unhealthy ideas about myself and sex.  I am looking forward to having a closer relationship with my

wonderful husband who has agreed to join me in attending Dayspring's weekly Thursday Nite Recovery Solutions, which is a lecture and small group process. I am so grateful to my friend for sharing  with me

her healing from the trauma she experienced as a young girl. 

The "Jump Start workshop is designed as a concentrated launch to the process of recovery for individuals in the critical beginning stage of recovey.  It will provide the attendees with a strong foundatiional base, for their ongoing recovery process, while abbreviating the overall time by several months.  This program is a fast start, not the complete process or the finish.  This Intensive Workshop can be a significant event in breaking the bondage of the addiction, and give you an immediate taste of victory and the necessary "ray of hope" that promises you truly can WALK FREE!

    Women's  "BREAKING THE SILENCE"  Weekend  Workshop

You are hurting, angry and fear that this may be more that you can endure  This is a scary place to be, but when you come to the end of yourself, God is always there to gather you in His arms and say to you, "I will make a way".  Dayspring is a place that is caring and confidential, with a Christ-centered program to walk with you as you heal from your wounds.  It is not an easy road, but you will experience the comfort and assurance that you are not alone in this process.  It may take time, but you will over come and it will be worth every step of your journey.  

FROM PORTLAND, OREGON

The new 30 day Intensive really worked for both me and my husband.  We each did our individual work - me with Coach Pam and my husbund with Coach Al.

It was not easy but we would do it again in a heartbeat!  It really turned us away from the disaster we were heading for.  Our Coaches were so helpful - we believe their success with us comes not only from their many years of practice, but because they have lived what they teach and know what works.  We were in a deep, dark place but today we are best friends, loving every minute we can spend together!  

After finishing our individual 30 day intensives we began to work on our marriage.  It was amazing how quickly our relationship was transformed!
