About Empowered Women’s Retreat

Join us as we pause the rush of daily life to take care of our souls. Learn how to count it all - the big and small disappointments and suffering, delays and trials - ALL of it, JOY! Please be our guest. Rest awhile, be refreshed, come enjoy.

The Bible calls us to rejoice when we are faced with trials of all kinds. But how do we actually do that? What is the secret to finding joy in, not in spite of, life's big and small disappointments and pressures and trials? Through interactive breakout sessions and large group worship sessions, with break time built-in, you'll hear how real women are empowered to trust God and rejoice in troubles of all kinds and explore transforming Biblical truths about the great God who is working in us and empowering us to "count it all joy".

Look for her first book, Strong Meek, next year.
