The 5 Days To a New Marriage resource developed by Shawn and Terry is nothing less than Miraculous…
The 5 Days To A New Marriage resource developed by Shawn and Terry is nothing less than miraculous. We have been referring couples in crisis to The Hideaway Experience for years. In almost all cases we see God’s transforming power work in marriages that were shattered and on the brink of divorce. Before the development of this intensive marriage resource, we saw many couples divorcing and giving up because it seemed as though their situation was beyond help and hope. That is changing thanks to the ‘5 Days’ resource. I highly recommend it to you.

We are 100% sold out to the principles that Shawn and Terry have written in this book you are holding. I will be passing it out to many…
Over the years when we were asked ‘Is there hope? Is there anywhere we can go to open our hearts to trusted biblically based counselors that will help us unpack the pain and love us through the healing?’ we would feel inadequate with our answers. We have referred to pastors and out patient counseling and for many it was enough. But when the intensives that Shawn and Terry and others have led came to light we immediately knew we had struck gold. Every couple we have referred have come back to us thanking us over and over again. And now to have many of these principles in written form will expand their message far and wide. We are 100% sold out to the principles that Shawn and Terry have written in the book you are holding. I will be passing it out to many and I encourage you to do the same.

Is your church full of struggling or mediocre marriages?
The healthiest churches are built on healthy families, and healthy families require strong, satisfying marriages. Our strategic 5 Days to a New Marriage events are designed especially for churches who would like to begin or build upon a marriage ministry. We introduce the 5 Days to a New Marriage model during a two-day seminar (Friday night and Saturday morning) led by one of our trained marriage and family therapists—all of whom have gone through each of the steps taught in this curriculum. Once the official seminar ends, we close out with a dedicated time of small- group leader training. The result of this weekend? Excitement among church members who are ready to dig deeper into the material introduced to them, and a team of trained small group leaders ready to lead them through this transformational process.
