Do you need a place
to heal your heart?

...the heart of your marriage
...the heart of your family?

Don Seltzer, M.Div., Pastor and Recovery Coach, and Janie Seltzer, M.A. Spiritual Director would like to invite you to the Hidden Life Hideaway for a restful and personal time together...

To begin a shift towards a new beginning!

A REVIVED HEART . . . no matter how hard, or empty, or frustrated it feels right now. BRING YOUR MESSINESS TO US . . . We will listen without shame or blame.

It is our intention and prayer to
with the same love that we have been loved!

“We love because God loved us first.” I John 4:19

What is the
Hidden Life Hideaway?

It is a safe, confidential, and personal retreat experience
-in beautiful San Diego County-
designed to address the needs of YOUR HEART,
Or, the heart of YOUR MARRIAGE, and/or,
the heart of YOUR FAMILY.

You bring all of your challenges and pain to us and we will come
alongside you with compassion and care in the loving
presence of God so that healing and restoration may begin!

When we arrived, our marriage and our ministry were in crisis and we were desperate for some healing to take place. Don and Janie's life experience, mixed with their intimacy with Jesus, made them gentle but powerful teachers. This "Come and See" experience not only began a healing in our hearts but also the heart of our marriage and ministry.

Three days at the Hideaway rocked the Timm family world!  We’re a blended family, and like every blended family, we’ve had our challenges . . . But with focused time and attention to those issues with Don and Janie, we are experiencing lasting change.  We couldn’t recommend the Hideaway more!

The Hideaway is a safe, confidential and personal
