I want to introduce Your Marriage Retreat: 7 Date Nights to a Thriving Marriage!

I have great news to tell you! I have completed Your Marriage Retreat: 7 Date Nights to a Thriving Marriage! You didn’t even know I had been working on it!

While it would be fantastic to go to a wonderful marriage retreat in some beautiful serene location and mingle with other couples… oh and pay a ton of money because marriage retreats are very expensive… and then take massive amounts of notes while you’re there so you can remember every detail to the best of your ability … Wait a minute!

I’m going to help you with that! I have prepared a marriage retreat that you can do within your own budget and on your own time, and even in your own home if you want to. If you have the budget to go away for an entire weekend, then you can go away and have the time of your life! If your budget is tighter or you just can’t get away for an entire weekend, then so be it! If you can’t get sitters for the weekend, then you can break it up and do it once a week or once a month … BECAUSE IT’S FLEXIBLE like that! It’s been broken down into 7 date nights so you can take your time, practice all the helpful info and soak it in.

Wth my background in marriage counseling and relationship coaching, I’ve learned that sometimes it’s hard for people to do things we tell you to do because of time and money constraints, or even a lack of babysitters. So I’m going to help you out with some of that.

No, I’m not sending you on free trips or coming to babysit your kids … BUT … I’m making this retreat so flexible that those things won’t be much of an issue. And you’ll never guess what else!!

You can keep (and access) the retreat materials ANYTIME you need to!

It’s kind of like having me, accessible all the time … except it’s not like that at all.

It is in E-book form and …

BETA course form!

On this retreat, Your marriage is going to be REFRESHED, RENEWED, and REVIVED. And then you are going to learn how to keep it that way by REPEATING.

Say it with me.

REFRESH. RENEW. REVIVE. REPEAT.

Did you say it?

The 8×11 Ebook is over 90 pages of wonderfulness. Well, to be perfectly honest, some of it may really challenge one of you or both of you, but that’s marriage. My prayer is that every couple that goes through this book will get freedom.

Each session (or date night) is interactive and engaging.

Topics include:

  • Date #1: Creating Brilliant Habits in the Name of Love (Love Languages & Habits)

Companion Resources Coming Soon

The course is consistently being updated and improved and therefore will not remain at the current price. Improvements are made as feedback is given so that it will become exactly what couples need to have an intimate and thriving marriage. A couple’s devotional is also being created as a companion to the e-book and course. If you are interested in receiving the updates, please follow me on social media and sign up for the updates. 🙂
