About the Retreat

Retreat Description

Over the course of marriage, couples can begin to feel disconnected, disillusioned, or even alone in their relationship. Resist the Drift provides a safe space where they can laugh and learn together and equips them with powerful tools to help them move from being “roommates” to being “soul mates” again.

During this retreat you’ll learn how couples slowly fade into roommate behavior and you’ll discover how to:

  • Rekindle passion
  • Reawaken fun
  • Refresh love
  • Revitalize intimacy
  • Reconnect to your soulmate

Retreat Cost
Includes lodging for two nights, meals, and programming

Retreat Speakers

Dr. Greg & Erin Smalley

Dr. Greg Smalley serves as the vice president of Marriage and Family Formation at Focus on the Family. In this role, he develops and oversees initiatives that prepare individuals for marriage, strengthen and nurture existing marriages and help couples in marital crisis.

Prior to joining Focus, Smalley worked for the Center for Healthy Relationships at John Brown University and as president of the National Institute of Marriage. He is the author of 17 books, including Fight Your Way to a Better Marriage, The DNA of Relationships, The DNA of Parent and Teen Relationships and The Whole-Hearted Marriage. He and his wife, Erin, co-created “Ready to Wed,” a complete premarital curriculum for engaged couples and “The Focus on Marriage Assessment.” They also released Crazy Little Thing Called Marriage: 12 Secrets to a Lifelong Romance in 2016. Smalley’s passion for marriage began as a young boy. He is the son of the late Dr. Gary Smalley, a family counselor, president and founder of the Smalley Relationship Center and author of 40 books on marriage. Smalley regularly attended his father’s conferences and absorbed the importance of marriage. He frequently had people come up to him at events and say, “Your dad saved my marriage.”

Smalley knew early in his career he wanted to be more hands-on in helping couples. After receiving his doctorate at the Rosemead School of Psychology at Biola University in Southern California and a counseling degree from Denver Seminary, he and his wife, Erin, led intensive marriage seminars around the world and trained pastors, professionals and lay leaders on how to effectively work with engaged and married couples. Married since 1992, Greg and Erin live in Colorado with their three daughters, Taylor, Maddy and Annie, and their son, Garrison. The Smalleys – who, with help, overcame their own struggles early on – make a point to study a marriage book together every Christmas.
