Marriage Enrichment

Retreat Description

Due to the pace and pressures of life, it can be extremely easy to feel distant 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. Its 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 “soulmates” again.

  • Practical ways to connect daily with your soulmate

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 your retreat will be very casual. Please bring comfortable clothing for the entire weekend, including Sunday morning. We recommend at least one pair of pants, a light jacket, and layers in case of colder weather, rain, etc. During most retreats, youll have the opportunity to participate in recreational activities, which require closed-toe/closed-heel shoes (preferably athletic shoes). On Saturday, you’ll have the opportunity to have a professional photo taken by our on-site photographer. If you’d like to bring a nicer outfit you can, though this is not required. Bring all personal toiletries, including any medicines you’re currently taking. You may want to bring a Bible, small book bag, and water bottle. You will not need any money during your stay as 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 any other staff members. If you feel you may need more in-depth help or your marriage may be in crisis, please contact us using the button below or check out WinShape Marriage Intensives. 

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

You’ll 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. You’ll have free time throughout the weekend, where you’re welcome to explore the beautiful campus on one of the many walking or biking trails. We also have a variety of other activities and games available. You can play pickleball, play disc golf, fish, hike, play board games, read, relax in a hammock, and more! Feel free to bring your own bikes, equipment, and games, but we also have everything you’ll need available for checkout.

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 nonrefundable. If your plans change, your reservation can be transferred to another event within one year of the originally scheduled experience. This must be done at least 30 days prior to the event, or a $75.00 transfer fee will be assessed. If you do not transfer your reservation prior to the event, you will no longer be able to transfer, and all payments will be forfeited. 

After a Marriage Retreat, You’ll Be:

  • Strengthened in your relationship with the Lord 
  • Renewed in your intimacy with your spouse 
  • Inspired to continue prioritizing your marriage 
  • Encouraged by others walking similar paths 
  • Refreshed and rejuvenated to return home
