Blended Family Couples' Retreat


Join Steve and Kris Tice at the Wolf River Refuge (located 5 miles from Silver Birch Ranch) to view and discuss the Family Life DVD series The Smart Stepfamily by Ron L. Deal.

Meet other couples and learn seven fundamental steps to blended family success and hear practical, realistic solutions to the issues you face as a blended family. Whether you are a married couple or soon-to-be married couple, this study will help you discover how to communicate effectively and how to solve the everyday puzzles of stepchildren relationships.

Housing is limited to a maximum of nine couples, with three cabins having double couple occupancy options. This retreat has limited space, so early registration is encouraged.  (If you are a soon-to-be married couple, please contact us for housing availability.)
