About the Retreat
Circumstances, such as busy lifestyles, differences between spouses, personal baggage, the loss of a loved one, childhood trauma, etc., trigger reactions that condition us to close up our hearts for protection, blocking the flow of love. As a result, couples drift apart, trying to find some version of contentment, or they give up altogether and look for love somewhere else.
In this retreat, you’ll learn the right definition of true love is and God’s design for it. You’ll learn that love is more than just a feeling, and that to have true, lasting intimacy, couples need to learn to love wholeheartedly.
$620 per couple (ALL APPLICABLE TAXES INCLUDED)
Includes lodging for two nights, meals, and programming
