“My husband and I attended [the couples’ retreat] last October.  Beautiful insights.  Excellent dialogue.  Growth as an individual and as a couple.  So AMAZING!  If you’re thinking of going….DO IT.  My husband and I are hearts full toward Jennifer GRATEFUL!  ❤ … This time together, separate front the regulars of life….is, as the credit card ad says… PRICELESS!” 

D. M.

“I’ve been meaning to write and thank you … I can honestly say that your classes have invigorated and reinvented our marriage. Both of us have been happier than we’ve been in years — probably the happiest we’ve ever been. Our daughter said to me recently that she noticed that my husband and I have been so much more positive and happy. I cannot tell you how wonderful this all is! Just know that you are doing really good, important, lasting work! Thank you so much!”

S. D.

“I just wanted to write and tell you that [your couples’ retreat] has completely changed our marriage. We had tried therapy and self-help books unsuccessfully and seriously considered separation, but your course entirely changed our perspectives and helped us truly face ourselves and our destructive habits. We still have things to learn, but we have come so far as a couple and it is largely due to you and the principles you taught us. We just want to say how grateful we are.”

Q & A

What is your cancellation policy?

A full refund minus a $60 processing fee is available through July 31st. From Aug 1 through Oct 15 you can cancel with a $300 processing fee. No refunds for cancellations are issued after Oct 16.

What is your policy with respect to COVID-19?

Many have asked about our policy regarding COVID-19, as other events hosted by Dr. Finlayson-Fife this fall have a clear policy regarding vaccination or proof of recovery from COVID.

We believe doing our part to hasten the end of the pandemic — or at least not contribute to prolonging it — is a top priority for us. We don’t want this event cancelled due to COVID. Accordingly, we may require that all attendees either be fully vaccinated or have recovered from the coronavirus prior to the event.  As such, if you are not able/willing to meet that requirement, we’ll issue a full refund of your ticket.

We will continue to monitor public health realities and recommendations as the event draws closer, and we will be determining what (if any) documentation (proof of vaccination or recovery from Covid) will be required to attend this event by September 15th, 2021.

How do I get to the retreat?

Driving directions are posted on the Holmstead Ranch & Resort website here: https://holmsteadranch.com/. After purchasing your ticket you’ll receive more detailed directions.

Want to fly in? The Holmstead Ranch is approximately 2.5 hours from the Las Vegas Airport, and about 45 minutes from the St George Utah airport.

Do I need to be LDS (Latter-day Saint) to attend?

No. This is open to all couples and faiths. Although Dr. Jennifer Finlayson-Fife specializes in issues unique to the Latter-day Saint culture in her private practice, her material and teachings are applicable to all couples seeking a more meaningful & intimate relationship.

I have special needs (diet, etc.).

Great! You are welcome here. We’ll do our best to accommodate to. Email us at getyourmarriageon@gmail.com and we’ll go from there.
