Getaway Weekend – July 9-10, 2021
Once a year we do a “Getaway Weekend” workshop that is a little different event from our others. The Getaway Weekend Workshop is special, because it will be at a hotel instead of a church. For this event we will rent a large conference room at a hotel and negotiate discount hotel room rates. The idea of the “getaway” is that we encourage couples to come without their kids for the workshop and stay in a hotel Friday night (and Saturday night if feasible.) This gives couples time to getaway from their kids and reconnect in their marriage. It is a fun weekend.
There will be a fee for this workshop. The 2020 Lubbock event was $100 per couple. That did not include the hotel room. Each couple is responsible for their own room and making their own reservations once the event registration opens. As of this time, we don’t know the exact cost of the 2021 event in the DFW area. It will depend on the rental cost of a large conference room. Payment for the event will take place when you register, and only Venmo and Paypal will be accepted.
This will be a little different event in the fact that there will be giveaways, goodie bags, and just an extra fun marriage weekend. The workshop will start on Friday night at 7 PM and again on Saturday morning (not too early), lasting until about 2 o’clock in the afternoon giving you time to do something fun for the rest of the day. There will be breaks for homework sessions and discussion time as a couple.
PLEASE NOTE: We won’t have any more details other than a date and location until May 1, 2021. Registration for the event will open on June 15, 2021. This will be a popular event with limited seating and will sell out quickly. Couples came from all over the US for the 2020 event in Lubbock, Texas, and it sold out within a few hours of registration opening.
We hope this helps with some explanation and planning on the Getaway Weekend.
“We can’t really thank you guys enough for this weekend! We had a great time and felt we truly grew together as a couple. Honestly, we got something out of every session. We especially liked the “homework” we got to do together; we learned some new things about each other.”
“We both very much enjoyed it, even after a few weeks short of 27 years of marriage.”
“We enjoyed the entire time we spent with you guys. The topics were spot on and you kept it so real. One of our favorite things was the homework part and given the time to discuss it with our spouse. Boy did we learn some things. We look forward to reading your book and appreciate the other gifts. We are excited to see what the 5 day challenge brings us and look forward to more retreats.”
“The weekend was amazing. Praying this is the beginning of a stronger marriage.”
“I feel like everyone who is married should go to an event like this to strengthen their marriage. I hope that you have another one soon. My husband and I have been together going on 29 years and can honestly say if it wasn’t for events like these we would have never made it this far.”
“Thank you so much for putting on your marriage get away weekend. It was an amazing weekend where we were blessed by you two sharing scripture, stories and ideas to help strengthen our marriage! It really opened up lots of conversations for my husband and I where we both can do better. I can’t wait to share this with our friends and family so they can attend the next one.”
“Exactly what we needed!! We thoroughly enjoyed our weekend!! We both learned so much!! This was our first ever anything we have done to work on our marriage of 13 years. It was all things we both needed to hear and work on. It was very comfortable, never awkward. My only fuss was I could have used a week of time with my husband feeding our marriage. Trey and Lea you are both precious!! Your advice was spot on and so easy for us to relate to. I cannot wait to see the amazing changes we have so badly needed in our marriage!! We love each other deeply and didn’t even realize our issues were from being roommates. We realized how critical it is to reorganize our priorities and not allow our 3 kids, as amazing as they are, to take priority over our marriage. I loved the way we got an opportunity to do “homework”. It was such a great ice breaker to talk about things that we didn’t realize that we needed to talk about or didn’t know how to talk about before. I could go on and on!! I loved how real and transparent you both were with your relationship. Thank you both so much for giving of yourselves, your time and precious experience as a couple!! You truly have no idea of the impact that you have in this world!! We are already working on the 5 day challenge!! Praying many blessings over the great work you are doing!!”
