The Location

The Location Where is the Marriage vs Homeschooling retreat held? A romantic boutique hotel. Or a cute Airbnb cottage. Or maybe you'll choose a cozy cabin in the woods. Wherever you join from, we want it to be refreshing and relaxing so you can cultivate an amazing relational time together.

The retreat is a virtual event, and the goal is for you and your spouse to get away by yourselves, and have some dedicated time to focus on growing your marriage. The conference sessions are streamed Friday evening and Saturday and we've structured the schedule dinner & lunch dates so you can have some focused connection time between sessions.

The Atmosphere

Investing your best energy into your marriage is so important! As homeschoolers, we know that our time and attention are precious resources...we have so many things vying for our attention. So, it is crucial that you and your spouse have some dedicated alone time to connect and grow.

So, how can you thoughtfully cultivate an environment for this conference that is most helpful? The first rule of the conference is that it needs to be kid-free. We all love our children, but let's be honest...our kids can often get our best energy and we end up with leftovers for our spouse. This retreat will be a refreshing time for just the two of you to learn and talk and grow together. So, make arrangements to go away from home, or if you decide to stay home- to have arrangements made for you children so you can be alone for 25 hours!
