Get away. Just the two of you.

What’s your story? Every marriage has one.

Some of our stories are unfolding beautifully, some have more bumps and twists than we would like. The good news is, all our marriage stories are still being written. Maybe yours could use some spicing up, some help getting unstuck, or maybe you need a new plot line entirely. A Weekend Getaway, presented by FamilyLife Canada, can help you and your spouse write a great story together, God’s way. It’s just one weekend, but it can take your relationship to a whole new level. Because when two people get on the same page…the sky is the limit!
I didn’t know what to expect having never attended anything like this. I have been blown away by the wisdom, authenticity and truth that has been presented. Thank you for not talking from stereotypes or making us feel guilty if we aren’t the …Christian stereotypical wife/husband. Thank you for your honesty.

This weekend took two people who were in a rut after 25 years of marriage and helped put a name to what the problems are…I feel like trying to mend our fences instead of moving on. I feel a great hope for our marriage that I didn’t have a few days ago.

What is a Weekend Getaway?

A Weekend Getaway is a marriage conference uniquely designed to enrich your relationship.
For most couples it’s a chance to reconnect, re-establish the foundation and rekindle romance.
For others, it’s a fresh start.
For some, it will be the weekend that saves a marriage.

Wherever you’re at in your relationship, it’s a weekend to remember. The atmosphere is relaxed and warm, even fun. You’ll hear from real couples doing real life together… God’s way. You’ll be given time to process what you’re learning. And together, you’ll make a plan for a marriage that lasts a lifetime.

You give us all permission to feel again and to know we’re not alone, laugh about our differences, to celebrate what we’re good at in life together and to have hope in the things that seem out of reach.

You can expect to:
  • spend quality time focusing on each other and your relationship
  • sharpen your relationship skills
  • develop a plan to finish together
  • learn about God’s design for marriage and the power of “oneness”

The weekend is a blend of full group sessions and downtime for the two of you. In fact a date night is built right in. The sessions have a workshop feel, mixing great information with time and tools for you to process what you are learning. And we mean just the two of you. There is no awkward sharing with strangers.
