What Does Our Marriage Retreat Cover?
Marriage Step One: Establishing a Covenant Foundation
To have a solid marriage, couples must clarify their value system and approach to marriage. The two options are contract vs covenant. How you approach your marriage will greatly impact how you respond to problems in your relationship, which are inevitable.
Marriage Step Two: Owning Your Brokenness
We all have a certain set of weaknesses or growth areas we bring into marriage. Conflicts often are the result of both partner's weaknesses creating vicious cycles with one another. Becoming aware of your areas of brokenness and owning them is vital to marital health.
Marriage Step Three: Learning to Share Power
Marriages work best when both spouses have an equal voice in the relationship and decisions are made with both partners in enthusiastic agreement. However, most couples have a power imbalance where one partner rules while the other becomes passive. Breaking this pattern so both have equal power is essential. This step also includes reviewing your personality test results to increase respect for your differences.
Marriage Step Four: Developing Emotional Attachment
The goal in marriage is to become best friends with your spouse. However, the majority are not and drift into isolation from one another. This step will train you on how to effectively work through conflict and areas of resentment and then how to build emotional closeness moving forward.
Marriage Step Five: Cultivating Sexual Fireworks
A healthy sex life is optimal for all married couples. However, because of past sexual trauma, relationship tension, and different libidos, most couples have problems in this area. This step will help you navigate through this sensitive topic to cultivate mutually satisfying sensual and sexual connection.
Marriage Step Six: Staying in Love
Now that you've learned how to have a covenant marriage, own your brokenness, share power, develop emotional attachment, and cultivate sexual fireworks, it's important to know how to keep things going well. This step will teach you specific techniques on how to continually fill one another's love bucket to stay in love and affair proof your relationship moving forward.

Who Is Our Marriage Retreat Speaker?
Dr. Wyatt Fisher is the creator and speaker at the Total Marriage Refresh seminar in CO. Other Total Marriage Refresh leaders host the conference in other states. His credentials include a Master's and Doctorate in Clinical Psychology and he's a Licensed Psychologist in the state of Colorado. He's been in private practice since 2004 where he specializes in marriage counseling.

"My husband and I really enjoyed this marriage retreat; we've been to other conferences before and this one was more beneficial, it was hands on. The information was really relatable. An analogy he mentioned really spoke to me: in society we spend a substantial amount of time training and receiving education for our careers (averagely 2-4 years) but get no training for marriage. We highly recommend this seminar, it's wonderful to take time and reflect on ourselves, and grow in our marriage." N.B.-previous attendant

"This was a long overdue day for our marriage. The teaching was so good, so easy to understand and the actual applications were not hard or complicated. It brought my wife and I so much closer. This is a must for the Newlywed all the way to the Grandparent. Money well spent for a marriage we are both deeply invested in and just needed some better tools to get back on track to our beautiful covenant. Thank you for sharing your marriage triumphs and struggles and expertise with us!" J.N.-previous attendant
