What is Hope Restored?
A Hope Restored intensive is a biblically based, Christian counseling experience for couples facing a crisis moment in their marriage or suffering from years of disconnection and relationship decay. Our licensed Christian counselors are trained to work with couples with deep hurts and long-term problems.
How can Hope Restored help?
Our Focus Marital Therapy™ method packs nearly a year’s worth of personalized counseling into a 3- to 5-day intensive, allowing you to break patterns of conflict and miscommunication more effectively than weekly counseling. An intensive experience can help you make significant progress toward healing.
What makes Hope Restored different?
The redemptive hope of the Gospel is at the center of our therapy. As you and your spouse experience Christ’s grace and forgiveness — first as individuals, then as a couple — you can start on a path to restoration. Our counseling tools and aftercare coaching are rooted in Focus on the Family’s understanding of God’s design for marriage as a sacred, lifelong covenant between a man and a woman.
What if I haven’t practiced my faith in years — or not at all?
You are deeply loved by God. Come experience the grace only He can provide. We’ll walk alongside you every step of your journey.
Are you ready to see what God can do through a Hope Restored marriage intensive?
We attended the intensive in Branson. It was life changing. I was convinced that nothing could change what was going on in our marriage. The counselors were amazing and created the safest environment. We are on a much different course now, and I believe we received a miracle that week. Thank you Focus on the Family, for such a wonderfully eye-opening, life-changing experience.
Upon arrival at Focus on the Family, I was very unsure whether or not our marriage could be healed. I can say with the utmost confidence that through our sessions with the counselors and learning [the tools], our marriage is on the way to being whole in a way that we have never experienced.
Our home felt like World War 3. We came broken, nervous, skeptical, but this past week has been a truly amazing journey. Our marriage has transformed in the past 4 days. The closeness we feel with each other now, we have never felt before. I would recommend this place to any married couple.

When we arrived at the Focus on the Family Retreat Center we had been separated for 2 1/2 months. We had been to four different marriage counselors on and off over 15 years. My husband had told me that he had little hope and that if God didn’t do something big it would be time for “formal separation”. I am thrilled to say that we both have hope and now have some great tools to start operating in a “safe place” with each other.
I came here feeling hopeless, brokenhearted, with no emotion. I felt this was our last chance to heal our marriage. The presence of God in the room was truly felt. It was amazing to feel the love of God come back into our lives and those around us. I am looking forward to returning home a changed man, loving and caring for myself and my wife. I am departing with my most heartfelt emotion – “I love my wife.”
We just experienced an extreme miracle through the Focus on the Family. My husband is military, and it came out that there had been an affair during his recent deployment. We attended a marriage intensive and the therapists were nothing short of anointed. The Lord really showed up. We’ve seen life-changing differences in our marriage. We cannot thank you enough for that.
Arrive at one of our tranquil Focus on the Family retreat centers and slow your pace. Our centers are designed to minimize daily distractions, so you can allow God to work in your life.
