About the Retreat
In a world desperate for marriage redemption, the act of cherishing is needed now more than ever. There are countless numbers of marriages consisting of two people just going through the motions. There are real ways this pattern can be reversed: when husbands and wives learn to cherish one another in proven, loving, and everyday actions and words.
So how do you cherish your spouse? You’ll see how going out of your way to notice them, appreciate them, honor them, encourage them, and hold them close to your heart will bring hope, light, and life into your marriage.
$620 per couple
Includes lodging for two nights, meals, and programming
Retreat Speaker: Gary Thomas
Gary Thomas’ writing and speaking focuses on bringing people closer to Christ and closer to others. He is the author of 18 books that have been translated into a dozen languages, including A Lifelong Love, Sacred Marriage: What if God Designed Marriage to Make Us Holy More Than to Make Us Happy?, The Sacred Search: What If It’s Not About Who You Marry, but Why?, Sacred Pathways, and the Gold Medallion award winner Authentic Faith. Thomas holds a master’s of arts degree in systematic theology from Regent College, and an honorary doctor of divinity from Western Seminary. He serves on the teaching team (and as writer-in-residence) at Second Baptist Church in Houston, Texas and is an adjunct faculty member at Western Seminary in Portland, Oregon.
His books and ministry focus on spiritual formation: how we can integrate Scripture, church history, and the time-tested wisdom of the Christian classics into the modern experience of faith. His speaking ministry includes presentations in 49 states and 10 different countries, and on numerous national television and radio programs, including multiple appearances on Focus on the Family and Family Life Today.
