Utilizing custom retreat materials Tanya created, Trevor and Tanya presented to 22 individuals the principles of a Christ centered marriage. The sessions focus on expectations, needs, roles and the next chapter. Saturday AM the gospel presentation resulted in two souls being prompted by the Holy Spirit to pray to receive Jesus as Lord and Savior. Ten other participants prayed to recommit their marriages and families to Christ. These 11 couples will return to a small congregation and the leadership is planning to start the Art of Marriage small groups in homes around Jackson, WI. – Green Lake, WI -Authored Marriage Retreat

“The weekend was a good reminder that just because we are on a safe path doesn’t mean I can avoid the responsibilities to my spouse and the Lord.”

“I feel like I have a great marriage but I have been challenged to not be complacent and make it better.”

“I never thought I would do one of these and it was very eye-opening.  I need to look at what I can do to help vs. what my wife can do to change. “

“I have been amazed to realize how much my selfishness has impacted so many areas of my marriage and I am so excited to seek God’s help to change.”

“We had decided not to attend the retreat and I had scheduled an appointment with an attorney on Monday at 930am.  We had a lot of people praying for us and we decided at the last minute to reconsider coming.  This retreat was amazing!  I have learned that I am selfish and need to first have a relationship with Christ.  I can’t thank you enough for saving our marriage.”

I really love my husband and I needed this weekend to remind me of that.  I also needed the reminder to put Christ as the center of our relationship.”

“This retreat has saved our marriage!  My wife and I were on separate paths towards separation and divorce.  However, all the prayers that have been raised by countless people have  helped God change our hearts to become one again.  This time it is forever!”

“Every relationship has an instruction manual.  Always refer back to it.  Every relationship takes maintenance.”
