Mysterious Marriage

Mysterious Marriage Retreat

Marriage is a profound mystery. In Ephesians 5:32 Paul calls marriage literally, a “mega-mystery.” The word mystery seems to imply it can’t be solved but there is an answer and it’s entirely possible to know it. It’s entirely possible for you to know, feel and act on the secret to a great marriage.

Richer Marriage

Richer marriage retreat

It’s easier to see things the way we want them to be than to see things the way they are. God is more real than that. He replaces rose-colored glasses with grace-colored glasses. That makes your marriage richer.

“The timing couldn’t have been better for our marriage. We had a fantastic weekend and were able to reconnect thanks to the opportunity and tools you provided. We didn’t realize how much we had missed each other due to the distractions in life – the distancing happened so slowly and before we knew it we were both wondering how are lives became so separate. You gave us a lot to discuss . . . and many ways we can prevent the creep of distancing from happening again. I can’t thank you enough. We look forward to doing this with you again next year!  Thanks again.”
