Ever notice how many hours of training you’ve received for your career compared to your marriage? It probably doesn’t even come close. A major reason marriage can be difficult is because we haven’t been taught how to do it right! Our couples retreats in Texas will change that for you by providing an incredible mix of Scripture, testimony, clinical experience, and marital research.
“We covered many difficult topics with ease and grace. His transparency with his own marriage made him feel relateable and human” (previous attendant).
“Everything was so practical and easily applicable, I never once got bored or zoned out, We kept every session interesting” (previous attendant).
Our couples retreat, the Texas Marriage Refresh, is designed to breathe new life back into your marriage. It’s set at a beautiful hotel so you can escape the “noise” of life for awhile and fully focus on your spouse, just like you did when you were dating. It will provide undivided attention for you to talk, play, and ponder how to make things better between you. In addition, we will equip you with effective tools to take your marriage from surviving to thriving. The marriage retreat is an all day Saturday event from 8am-5pm with a two hour break in the middle.
“The topics were very helpful, Bible based and We was engaging, entertaining, and well organized” (previous attendant).
“Wow, it was amazing. I believe you truly save so many marriages” (previous attendant).
Our Couples Retreat in Texas includes six sessions:
1-Establishing God’s Covenant Foundation. The first step in having a successful marriage is approaching it from God’s perspective. This session will show you how to establish a covenant based relationship and the difference it can make long-term in your marriage.
2-Owning Our Brokenness. We all bring shortcomings into our marriage and those weaknesses interact with our spouse’s weaknesses and vicious cycles turn into tornadoes. This session will show you what your cycles are, where they come from, and how to change them.
3-Falling In Love Again. The ultimate goal in marriage is to feel in love. After all, that’s why you got married in the first place. When we are in love it automatically shields our marriage from all sorts of problems and temptations. This session will show you specific steps to fall back in love and stay in love with your spouse.
4-Establishing Emotional Attachment. Ideally, we turn to our spouse as our main supporter and comforter. Unfortunately, many spouses feel the opposite and feel their spouse is more of a threat than a comfort. This session will teach you how to reverse this and start building safety and closeness back into your marriage.
5-Cultivating Sexual Fireworks. Part of a healthy marriage is a mutually satisfying sex life. Unfortunately, many marriages fall into the trap of the man pursuing sex, the woman withdrawing because she doesn’t feel emotionally connected, then the man withdrawing because of the lack of sex. This session will show you specific steps to nurture both the emotional and sexual needs of husbands and wives so both can be happy.
6-Sharing Power. The last major piece to a happy marriage is learning to share power. Instead of sharing power many couples struggle compromising and try to force their way, which ends of eroding positive feelings quickly. This session will teach you how to respect differences and reach enthusiastic agreement on decisions with your spouse.
Each session is followed by alone time for couples to apply the content to their relationship. There is no group sharing. No meals or childcare provided
