The Retreat House is a place to experience God's loving attention, becoming aware of Him in the midst of all things.

about the retreat house

The Retreat House is a charming estate in Eads, TN that invites you to step away from the busyness of life to  intentionally connect with God, yourself, and others. We journey with you to find rest, healing, and spiritual rhythms through full circle care. Through a Collective of professionals, we offer counseling, coaching, spiritual direction, marriage support, body work, and retreats. 

We are at our best when we are healthy mind, body, soul, and spirit. Being whole comes from intimacy with God, knowledge of oneself, nourishing our physical bodies, being in nature, laughing with friends and family, giving and receiving love, knowing and believing God is sovereign, and slowing down our pace of life to taste and see that He is good. We have experienced the fruit of this within our own lives, our staff, bfr kids and bfr scholars. It is our hope to walk through these steps to wholeness with you so that you can see and experience the outpouring of grace into every area of your life. Doing this internal work isn't easy or quick but the benefit for yourself, your children, your marriage and your work life is eternal. We use the enneagram, book studies, one on one coaching, and specialized retreats to aid in relationships, finding wholeness,  and mission trip preparation.

Our retreats are centered around contemplative spiritual practices such as Lectio Divina, silence, solitude, listening prayer and others to open you up to deeper intimacy with the Lord. We offer half day silent retreats and overnight retreats.


Discover who you are and how God has designed you. Whether you are needing self discovery or you are looking for relationship/marriage support. We aim to give you tools to move forward with a licensed counselor, spiritual director,  or coach. 


We have events happening at The Retreat House all the time. If you are interested in joining one of our special events, open hours or would like to talk with our team about organizing an event for your group we would love to help.

Statement of Beliefs

We believe in justification by faith in Jesus Christ alone.

We believe in the Holy Trinity-The unity of Father, Son and Holy Spirit as three persons in one. 

We believe true living faith is produced by the Spirit of God and results in the fruit of righteousness. Possessing faith brings forth good works that bring glory to God. ​

We believe that Jesus's life and example calls us into deep contemplation with God, service to others, and a life of holiness.

"At different points in my life, Britney and Lacey have shepherded me through significant growth in my faith walk and the ways I understand and interact with others. In more recent years, Britney has helped me process and grow within my relationships, both my family and my new marriage specifically. Through having a better grasp of the Enneagram I can serve them better and recognize my own patterns and perspective. Working with Britney helped my husband and I verbalize expectations for one another that we didn’t even realize we had and led to me shifting my priorities to be consistent with a gospel-centered marriage. I am a better daughter, sister, friend and wife because of this work!"
