Couples come to Respite Retreat from all over the country, as well as from outside the U.S.—some who lost a child only a month prior to attending, couples whose loss was fifteen years prior, and everywhere in between. Our goal is to help couples take steps toward healing from wherever they are. We have a wide range of ages represented in the children who have died, from infants born still to young adults in their twenties or thirties, as well as a wide range of causes of death.
We share our stories together and pray for each other. Over the weekend, we talk about:
The weekend is not a conference or workshop. It’s not a group therapy session or a secular support group. It's a mixture of directed large-group conversations, enjoying meals together, and opening up God's Word together in search of help and hope that can only be found in Christ.
