What Our Couples are Saying

This event has helped us learn to talk and laugh again. We have been trying so hard to maintain professional relationships, the house, raise 2 kids that we forgot how to talk. I had fun meeting my mate again and getting tools.

The speakers were funny and relatable with great stories. We have been in several marriage retreats in our 15 years of marriage and still learned so much on this retreat.

We had a great time learning relationship skills that I know we will use moving forward. We felt safe to learn and be vulnerable which helped us to connect.

Top notch conference!! Don't let the "Free Conference" let you think that it's a low rating conference. My husband and I are happily married of 22 years, and we still walked away with a lot of tools to better our relationship
