Every family in America has been affected by Family Breakdown. You are not alone.
  • Are you tired of the drama and insecurity and lovelessness, and wonder how you can feel better?
  • Are you heartbroken and wonder what you can do to help your family, including your kids or grandkids?
  • Do you wonder how we got into such a mess and how we can recover?

Come to the Ruth Institute's "Healing Family Breakdown" Half-Day Retreat, and regain hope! Put into practice the practical family-building virtues of mercy, empathy, and togetherness.

What you can expect at the Healing Family Breakdown Retreat:
  • Prior to the Retreat, you will choose one person as the focal point of your prayer and meditation. Perhaps someone who has been harmed by family breakdown, or who has harmed others by breaking up a family.
  • You will have the opportunity to grow in practical virtues that support solid family life.
  • You will feel empowered to draw people closer to Jesus Christ.
  • You will gain knowledge about the social structures that have caused family breakdown and the confidence to discuss these issues with others.
The program will include these elements:
  • Pre-retreat preparation:
    • Suggested prayers
    • Suggested short readings
  • Half-day retreat running from 9:00-12:30.
    • Short talks
    • Guided meditation
    • Group discussion
  • Post-retreat benefits:
    • Regular encouraging emails
    • Suggestions for simple activities
    • Ideas for focused prayer

Who should attend?
Individuals age 16 and over, of any Christian faith. The Retreat will NOT be group therapy for families. Rather, it will be an opportunity for individuals and families to explore the spiritual implications of family breakdown they may have experienced, and to find spiritual healing, strength, and comfort.

Testimonials

"This is the beginning of transformation!"

"Thank you for the vocabulary and crystal-clear way forward."

I would recommend this event to anyone who is having a rough time adjusting to their broken family.

I wish I would have brought or encouraged a friend to come--I would have even offered to cover their cost.

Great content and definitely better equipped to talk about these issues.

Maybe do a more teen/young adult-oriented retreat.

Exceeded my expectations! Thanks! I feel empowered!

I especially appreciated the statistics and the family trees (Jennifer Johnson's) on the overhead.

It made me want more. I loved learning, sharing, talking among the people at our table.

Please, please, have follow-up meetings like this for us-- we need this truth explained and exposed for us.
