I went to a marriage retreat in wine country and all I got was this epiphany

by Olga Rosales Salinas

It’s been 10 years since I met my husband and, in that time, our relationship and marriage have shifted, changed, and progressed. That’s because, as individuals, we have changed, shifted, and progressed.

Recently, we decided to go on a marriage retreat in Napa Valley called “A Vision for Marriage,” hosted by Brian and Ruthie Kim. The weekend completely transformed the way I think about couples counseling. Did it change my marriage? No. But it did give my husband and me insight into topics we haven’t been discussing. It also presented an interesting question to ask before attending another retreat, “You say this is a Christian retreat. Does that mean it is NOT for secular people?” More on that below.
