The Art of Marriage Retreat #1 & #2



The Art of Marriage Retreat #1-March 31-April 2

The Art of Marriage Retreat #2-April 7-9 (Limited registration)

Every marriage is unique, expressed by the colorful personalities of each spouse, and textured by the circumstances at play in their lives.  Blending these to make marriage work is a divinely inspired art form – challenging to master, but definitely worth the effort.

The Art of Marriage Retreat will help couples apply what the Bible teaches about marriage in a powerful way. It consists of six facilitated video sessions from FamilyLife Ministry, followed by small group time. Each participant will receive an accompanying manual that contains projects, articles, and tips to help them live what they learn. In addition to great teaching, couples will have the opportunity to enjoy a date night, relax, laugh, make new memories, and spend time away without distractions. Each married couple will receive private housing.

The six sessions include the following:

  • Love Happens: God’s Purpose and Plan
  • Love Fades: Overcoming Isolation
  • Love Dances: Fulfilling Our Responsibilities
  • Love Interrupted: Communication and Conflict
  • Love Sizzles: Experiencing Real Intimacy
  • Love Always: Leaving a Lasting Legacy 

The mission of FamilyLife is to effectively develop Godly marriages and families who change the world one home at a time. To learn more about the ministry of FamilyLife, please contact us at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .
