Intimacy Begins in the Kitchen:

The Retreat

Does the idea of taking time away to give some much-needed attention to your marriage as husband and wife sound impossible? Has it been months or maybe even YEARS since you and your spouse focused on each other distraction free and did something special for just the two of you?

Have family dinners around the dinner table become a distant memory in your household? If you answered YES to even ONE of these questions, I need to see you at the INTIMACY BEGINS IN THE KITCHEN retreat!

What Is Intimacy Begins In The Kitchen?

In 2017 I created a cooking class experience for married couples that not only instructs them on how to make delicious, healthy meals but also creates a bonding and team-building experience between husband and wife that’s capable of rekindling the biblical and physical fire in their relationship, as well as their family life. We believe that Intimacy between a husband and wife truly does begin in the kitchen at home, where food for the family is prepared with love, and that love has the ability to spill over to the dining room table, and onto the rest of the family.

NOW, after 2 years of classes, there’s been such a demand for more and so many great conversations that extended way beyond the actual class that we thought, “Hey! Why not supersize this experience and turn it into a weekend!”

That’s right! For 3 days and 2 nights, you and your spouse will enjoy a weekend of team building, learning effective strategies for communication, and the most delicious part of all, FOOD, GLORIOUS FOOD!

Whether you’re feeding a family of four or you’re empty nesters, coming together to prepare delicious, nurturing meals has the power to heal the heart, physically, emotionally and spiritually, one meal at a time! And believe me when I say, after spending time together creating in the kitchen, the flames from the stove won’t be only ones rekindled!


What’s included in the retreat?

The retreat includes a 3-day, 2-night stay in a luxurious home located on an estate tucked away, just outside of the city in the hills of Kentucky. You and your spouse will be able to take in sunset views, glimpses of local wildlife from estate balconies, and even pick apples and berries if they’re in season!  Enjoy morning coffee on the third-floor balcony  overlooking the back field, feel free to take a stroll over 11 acres of private land, or try your hand at the piano in the music loft. 


We will be cooking a meal or two in the fully-stocked custom kitchen Intimacy Begins in the Kitchen style, where afterward you can enjoy your meals on one of two outdoor decks or in one of three indoor eating areas. 

Workshops – You heard of self-care, well all of our interactive workshops will focus on Marriage-Care. 

  • Couples Sessions – You “care” for everyone else and your union often times takes a backseat to all of the action. Now is the time to mark your calendar and carve out time for just you and boo. 
  • Team building activities (to strengthen your communication with your spouse)
  • Culinary experiences (cooperation building activity)
  • Date night
  • A special surprise for each couple

Escape your day-to-day and learn how to rekindle the excitement, love and communication with your spouse the way God designed. The heat will start in the kitchen, turn into a flame and become a raging fire by the time you hit the sheets.

  • Wow!!! Today I attended a couples’ cooking class and the food was incredible. It was so much fun. I LOVED EVERY MINUTE OF IT!!! Sheryl R. ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐


  • My husband and I had the best time at a couples cooking class – Intimacy Begins in the Kitchen – Sakinah prepared fun surprises for us including a giveaway and the food was phenomenal (and healthy!). It was seriously the BEST date night, and we can’t wait to sign up for another class! Carmel S. ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐


  • The food was so good, I don’t even like veggies, but I had to have the recipe for the spinach dip and salad dressing so I could make it the next day. My spouse and I absolutely loved the “date night” goodie bags we received afterward. It was worth every penny. I can’t wait until the next one. – M. Butler ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
