I am grateful that we made the sacrifice to attend the Couple's Retreat. It was our first time attending, and it was everything we thought it would be and more. Everything was God filled and God ordained. All the topics that were discussed, the couple we were paired with, and the questions that we had to answer as a couple, was just what we needed to hear or work through. We left feeling like this is something that we can accomplish, we now know that Black love does exist and that we all have flaws. If you need to be shown how to pour into your mate, support your mate, witness transformation, or need a breakthrough in your relationship, I highly recommend the Twogether Marriage Retreat.
The Twogether Marriage Retreat has truly been a blessings for us. It has given us a platform not just as participaters and listeners. Its amazing to see how well each session flow and how God moves. We've had the opportunity to share pre-life circumstances and how they impact our marriage. Meet other couples from various states (that's now considered family) as well. Although we've been married now for many years. We have taken advice and nuggets that has sustained us to work harder towards our marriage.
Well, what can I say... we heard a lot about the first Marriage Retreat and I must say that we were not disappointed! From the time we arrived we could feel that we were going to have a great experience. Things were all setup and organized and the cabin really set the mood. We met several couples that we didn't know and got to know some better that we already knew. The breakout session really allowed us to talk and take away some great points to help our relationship. It seemed as though everyone had one mission in mind, get help and help someone. This was our first time ever being apart of something like this and we plan to do it again! The Retreat was very well planned and that is what truly made it such a great experience!
This was our first vacation with just ourselves and it was very much needed. Our experience with Sheldon and his wife's retreat was very good the mansion was something I myself had never experienced, we encountered good family oriented people and new friends. The retreat offered excellent food and plenty of activities I would recommend if you have never been. My wife and I will be attending another one. Would like to say thanks to Sheldon and his wife for making our first experience a good one!
My wife Renae and I never thought about attending a marriage retreat in the past. I recently came back home after 7 years of working a job where I lived in another city and only home on the weekends. When I came back home we were "empty nesters". After 13 yrs of marriage (19 yrs as a couple), we realized that we've never made an investment in our relationship. So when Sheldon invited us to attend the Twogether Marriage Retreat, we thought this might be our opportunity. Having Pastor Tracy Jennings and wife Cynthia facilitate the event made it a no-brainer. I've known Tracy, Cynthia and Sheldon for over 30 years. Renae and I don't interact with many married people so it's been a learning experience for us. In addition, we feel like we have an extended family. Many of the couples that attended this year haven't been married long. Renae and I were able to share some of our experiences that I believe added value to the retreat. At the same time, Renae and I realized that we've turned the corner on several issues ourselves. That was a good feeling. I strongly recommend all married couples explore retreats like this even if your marriage is doing well.
I really enjoyed my time at the Couples Retreat. As a couple with 2 toddlers we look forward to getting away and enjoying ourselves with other couples hanging out, mingling, and of course shopping. Reconnecting with my spouse is important to me and I can't wait until the next retreat in 2020. Truly a blessing!!
