It was in 1976 when Dale and Adi Lee met in Montana's Glacier Country, as each was resting and taking in the beauty of the mountains, rivers, lakes and forests of northwest Montana, and the dream of a Montana-based marriage retreat was born.
Dale and Adi both shared a love for the outdoors, leading to a friendship that would blossom into an everlasting covenant. Of course it stood to reason that the marriage retreats offered by Power & Compassion Christian Counseling were to be located in a secluded spot with mountain views. Power & Compassions retreat cabin is situated in a peaceful meadow just a few minutes away from Glacier National Park.
A couple-to-couple approach is practiced during the retreats to ensure that both parties will be given the chance to speak, be heard, and understood. Understanding your spouse, after all, is integral to working out a marriage. Different areas are covered but particular emphasis is placed on communication skills to foster understanding between the couple and personal responsibility. Additionally, there is also time allotted for hot button areas to aid in restoring love and harmony in the relationship by tackling issues that may have been avoided in the past thus keeping the couple away from real reconciliation.
