Is your marriage a dream or a nightmare? Do you feel fully known by your spouse? Do you know what true intimacy in marriage is supposed to be?

You will experience support and connection with others in your group. Many alum say this the best part of the weekend!
“This workshop gave me new hope and encouragement for our marriage so we can leave a lasting legacy for our children. Without your ministry, we would have had no hope. Thank you for all you do. We will continue to support your ministry.”
“After my husband completed Every Man’s Battle and myself Restore, this was the next step in our marriage to rebuild after betrayal. The speakers and counselors were amazing and transparent! I am so glad we came and can add the workshop skills we built to our toolbox. We truly experienced expressing feelings and we had never been that raw before.”
“They answered the questions you are afraid to ask! I could see a difference in our marriage in just 3 days. It’s worth the money. Our marriage is worth it!”
“I have no idea how good our marriage can get..but I know want to experience it!”
“I wasn’t sure what to expect coming into this conference, but I was pleasantly surprised right from the start. I found myself listening intently, eager to hear new ideas and techniques that could be used to improve my relationship with my wife.”
“I traveled from Anxious to Hopeful over the weekend. What a safe place to open my heart. I know the road will still be long but I feel better prepared to address the issues and avoid the pit falls. Time and money well spent.”
“I realize now that the intimacy that I have had with my wife was not intimacy at all. It needs to be much, much more. Thank you for the wake-up call that I can restore, not “create” the relationship and marriage that God wants for us.”
“In 47 years of marriage I don’t remember ever feeling this close and bonded to my husband. The love we thought was gone has been awakened and rekindled to better than before. All the years of illness and stress had hardened our hearts. I tried to seek counseling several times but my husband was resistant every time I tried. I can’t explain what happened or why he agreed to go (to the workshop) but he was willing! He has opened his heart to me and I’m drawn in! For the first time in 15 years we hold hands, hug one another, and make eye contact. We are working on conversation and compromise and we smile a lot!”
“My wife and I have had years of counseling and marriage retreats of all kinds and faiths but this workshop touched on and exposed completely new areas of my life and marriage that need to be addressed along with tools that will bring about change and restoration to help me become the husband I am created to be.”
“This workshop should be mandatory to get a marriage license! Wish I had attended sooner than 41 years into the marriage.”
