Marriage Retreats, Our thoughts

This was my Facebook post today: We are seriously getting ready to honor God and promote biblical marriages this year. First Weekend to Remember meeting on Saturday and we are setting up marriage retreats at our home for the rest of the year. We have grown so much stronger as a couple with God’s grace and strength. Our marriage should have been a casualty according to the world’s standards. We had so many ‘statistics’ against us from the start. Losing our daughter ‘should have’ torn us apart but knowing God and being committed to honor our marriage has deepened our love for each other. We are stronger now than ever before. We want to help other couples grow closer to God and each other. If you want more information about a weekend retreat at our home, a Weekend to Remember event, or an Art of Marriage bible study contact us! We are here to help you honor God and fall in love with your spouse even more!

We are so impassioned and excited about what God can do if we only get out of His way. He has given us a beautiful home that we want to share with others.  We have designed it to be accessible to many people.  We didn’t want anything to be a hindrance to people coming to hear God’s word and experience a retreat. We have a wheelchair ramp leading through a side door into the main hallway. There is one bathroom that has an accessible shower with grab bars and a toilet with grab bars.  The sink is lower and it is easier to use for someone in a walker or wheelchair.  The door ways are wider and there are no carpets on the first floor. We are not fully wheelchair accessible but we come really close!

We have a guest bedroom on the first floor and two more guest bedrooms upstairs. The upstairs guest rooms share a full bath.

Our hearts are with marriages. We love couples, teenagers and kids but if we want to impact the world we need to help marriages become biblically sound. Families affect their own children and the world around them.

We have lived through our own challenges both as individuals and together as a couple. God has provided His strength and His guidance through the tough times. We are not perfect, no one is, but God has gifted us with the ability to listen and to share His plan for marriages.

I am praying that He continues to guide us and bring those couples into our sphere of influence who want to have a better marriage. The retreats are Not for marriage who are already in deep trouble, we are Not counselors. The retreats are a tool that you can use to grow closer to God and become more fit to serve God together as a family!
