Time away is essential. My husband and I discovered this the hard way. We spent three years neglecting this much needed time away to recharge and focus on our marriage and family. Money and time are areas hard to stretch any further than they all ready are. I’ve compiled a list of free or low cost retreats. A strong marriage with Jesus as the foundation is crucial in effectively raising children and serving others in ministry. I’ve heard of many marriages and ministries falling apart due to overlooking the seriousness of small breaks to stay connected as husband and wife. I trust this data will be helpful.
