About the Retreat

Retreat Description

All individuals have past experiences, present circumstances, and future worries that can cause them to guard their heart toward their spouse especially during communication and conflict. Wholehearted Marriage helps couples break down these communication barriers by providing biblical teaching, so they can work through conflict in a healthy manner and succeed in making their marriage the safest place on earth.

Key Takeaways

The Wholehearted Marriage retreat will teach you and your spouse:

  • To identify and understand what you have done to make your marriage feel unsafe i.e., holding onto unspoken expectations and/or acting out of past, present, or future events
  • Tools to create safety within your marriage
  • How to be vulnerable and grow closer to one another
  • How to see each other through the eyes of Christ
  • How to have hard conversations about past, present, and potentially future hurts
  • How to see each other as teammates versus opposing teams

Shawn and Christina are a fun couple who love to laugh and tell stories. They are transparent, experienced, and encouraging…making it easy for genuine connection with audiences. Shawn’s studies ended in a doctoral degree in Counseling Psychology specialized in marriage and family therapy.

Shawn has served and led in some amazing families and organizations… from the Cathy Family of Chick-fil-A to the Gary Smalley Relationship Center to his current home church. Shawn is co-author of two books: “The Wholehearted Marriage” and “Five Days to a New Marriage.”

Despite extensive schooling, Shawn really did not know anything about relationships until he met his wife. Christina has a bachelor’s degree from the University of Mary-Hardin Baylor. She speaks and leads retreats as an adjunct faculty member of WinShape Marriage. Although skilled as an interior designer, Christina is most at home in her role as mom to five wonderful children – Taylor, Cade, Avery (with the Lord), Cody, and Colt.
