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

"Smart Stepfamilies is the most highly practical program I know for helping couples who are dealing with the common struggles of stepparenting. The church desperately needs to offer hope to this large segment of our society. Ron and Nan Deal are available to help you with the process. Ron is an excellent presenter and his book The Smart Stepfamily is the most helpful book I know on this topic. I highly recommend them and their ministry."
