WinShape Marriage Retreat

In the midst of all the noise that surrounds us, we often neglect to care for the thing that is the most important part of us – our own soul. When we run at an unsustainable pace and close ourselves to the movement of God in our lives, our relationships suffer. However, when we take the time to notice how God is working in and through us, we grow in intimacy and love for him and our spouse. When two people are committed to hearing from God together, it affects every part of their relationship. Prayer habits change, they serve together more often, and their family is made stronger because of it.

This weekend Marriage Retreat will give you the space you need to eliminate the noise so that you can hear from God, your spouse, and yourself. You’ll notice the movements of God in your own soul throughout the weekend, and will leave with a renewed sense of what God is doing in your life and the life of your relationship. You will be refreshed, strengthened in your marriage, and will have new tools to care for the soul of your marriage.
