In-Home Christian Marriage Retreat (Donation Based)


Craft a vision for your future.

Six sessions available in 2023.

Register for an intimate gathering at the picturesque mountain home of Jerry and Tara in Seven Devils, North Carolina.  Have fun while you learn about topics including improving communication, enhancing three key aspects of intimacy, keeping the spark alive and engaging in positive conflict.  You will join 1 other couple for a two night retreat. You will enjoy your own ensuite bedroom with a private balcony offering spectacular mountain views.  There will be group time in a relaxed setting where you will learn new techniques to improve communication, enhance intimacy and better manage conflict.  In addition, you will have a one-on-one session where you can discuss any issues or challenges specific to your marriage. Finally, you will have some free time to explore the beauty that is surrounding you. This small group size allows you to receive individual time and attention ensuring you will walk away with new insight into your relationship and enthusiasm to make it even better!  Your weekend reservation includes all meals, lodging and refreshments during your stay.

Shocking Marriage is a non-profit organization. Your weekend will be covered by the generous donations of past retreat guests, local churches and others that want to bless your marriage. A $50 refundable deposit will hold your spot.
