Retreat Description

Due to the pace and pressures of life, it’s extremely easy to feel disjointed from your spouse. You’re committed to loving and honoring each other until death do you part; however, daily routines involving jobs, kids, chores, and other commitments can overshadow romance and passion. It’s not surprising that disconnectedness may be present. Resist the Drift provides a safe space where you can laugh and learn together and equips you with powerful tools to help you move from being “roommates” to being “soul mates” again.

Key Takeaways

  • The opportunity to learn how to recognize bids for connection 
  • Tools to reawaken fun, refresh love, and revitalize intimacy in your marriage 
  • Practical ways to connect daily with your soul mate 

Retreat Speaker

Dr. Greg Smalley, vice president of Marriage and Family Formation at Focus on the Family and the author of 17 books, and Erin Smalley, co-creator of “Ready to Wed,” a complete premarital curriculum for engaged couples and “The Focus on Marriage Assessment.”

This was an extremely beautiful place, the people were very wonderful, we enjoyed the food like crazy, and had fun on the bicycles going around the lake and exploring the countryside. Our time there was a very worthwhile experience! I would love to go again!

My husband and I attended a retreat this past spring at WinShape, and we had a life changing experience. It's such a safe place to grow and connect with your spouse. They've literally thought of everything to make you feel comfortable and cared for. We didn't want to leave!

How It Works

FAQs

Where are you located?

WinShape Retreat is located on the campus of Berry College in Rome, GA, approximately 1.5 hours northwest of Atlanta, GA.

What do we need to bring?

The dress for our retreats is casual. Please bring comfortable clothing. We recommend at least one pair of pants and a light jacket as well as layers in case of colder weather, rain, etc. At most retreats, you’ll have the opportunity to participate in experiential learning activities, during which you’ll need closed-toe/closed-heel shoes (preferably athletic shoes). You will not need any money during your stay as all lodging, meals, snacks, and programming are included in your registration fee.

Do you provide counseling at Marriage Retreats?

Our Marriage Retreats do not provide time for one-on-one counseling with the speakers or other staff members. If you feel you may need more in-depth help or that your marriage is in crisis, please contact us or check out Marriage Intensives.

What does the schedule look like, and will we have free time?

You will receive a detailed schedule of the weekend upon arrival, but you can expect breakfast, lunch, and dinner as well as sessions in an auditorium type setting. Additionally, you’ll have free time and experiential learning activities on Saturday. During your free time, you’re welcome to explore the beautiful Berry College campus on one of the many walking or biking trails. Please feel free to bring your bikes, or you can check out ones we have available. We also have a variety of other activities and games—fishing equipment, discs for our disc golf course, yard games, tennis rackets, basketballs, board games, etc.

What is your reservation policy?

The full amount of the event will be charged to your credit card at the time of the reservation. Once your card is charged, your payment is non-refundable.

A $75.00 transfer fee may be assessed. If you do not call to cancel your reservation prior to the retreat, you will not be able to transfer to a different retreat.

After a Marriage Retreat, You’ll Be:

  • Strengthened in your relationship with the Lord
