Feedback from previous years:
"Wow!! What amazing weekend we had at the Blended Families retreat at WinShape. Ron Deal was a great speaker and had lots of timely information about blended families and their specific needs and problems. We were ministered to, and hopefully ministered to others by sharing our story in small group settings. We made new friends from Pennsylvania and Tennessee as well as Miami. Honestly it was such an awesome experience we didn't want to go another day without saying thank you!! - Robbie & Summer
"Exceeded our expectations. Ron is an amazing speaker. Not only does he keep it real and give you applicable information to use, he hangs out with us like a friend..." - Debbie
"My husband and I just returned from our weekend at WinShape with you. I cannot begin to tell you how greatly we benefited and how on point this retreat was for us. We left with a lot of hope... and understanding." - Beth & Tim
"The WinShape event gives you tools to strengthen your marriage and family, and a community of people who understand." - Janice
"Nothing prepared me for what I have experienced as a stepmother over the last almost 12 years. It has been one of the most challenging, painful, lonely, difficult experiences of my life... It has also been one of the greatest learning experiences I have had—and much of that is due to the hope and knowledge I have received from reading your website, your books, and recently participating in a webinar... I am grateful that you have made your life’s work providing resources, direction, information, and hope for the many people struggling with stepfamily issues. With gratitude I am making a donation to the Stepping Forward Campaign."
