Why spend a weekend with Lysa, Leslie, Jim and Joel learning about boundaries?

Relationships are wonderful – until they aren’t.

What do you do when:

  • …you’ve reached that place in a relationship where you know something needs to change but the other person isn’t willing to make changes?
  • …you know the relationship isn’t healthy but no option seems like a good option?
  • …you don’t know how to identify the dysfunctions in some important relationships so you’re not even sure what to work on for things to get better?
  • …you’ve experienced the ending of a significant relationship and you’re not sure how to move on in healthy ways?

If you’ve been asking any of these questions, The Good Boundaries and Goodbyes Retreat is just for you. You’ll gain biblical confidence that boundaries aren’t just a good idea, they are God’s idea. And you’ll be empowered to know how boundaries will help you fight for relationships and how to implement them in ways that work.

You’ll learn how to recognize when a relationship has shifted from having typical difficulties into destructive patterns that must be addressed.

This isn’t about leaving people – boundaries help us love people without losing the best of who we are.
