WHY RETREATS ARE SO IMPORTANT

Four Things Women Need
to Grow Closer to Jesus

#1 WOMEN NEED TO BREAK AWAY

God’s presence is all around us, but it often gets drowned out by the demands of our daily routine. Breaking away from the day-to-day invites a unique opportunity for us to hear and see God in a new way. It is simply one of the best ways to experience spiritual breakthrough.
 

#2 WOMEN NEED TO EXPERIENCE GOD’S PERSONAL TOUCH

A specific word spoken to our heart, a healing insight, a feeling of comfort and peace—there’s nothing more powerful and life-changing than a personal touch from God. Worship, prayer, Bible exploration, and a protected period of time to do all three is a much-needed gift. 


#3 WOMEN NEED A SAFE PLACE TO OPEN UP AND SHARE THEIR HEARTS

"How-are-you?-I'm-fine" passes for much of conversation today. But the truth of our lives goes deeper than surface level. Real connections are forged when we have the chance to open up and share our fears, joys, pain, doubts, and wisdom with each other without fear of judgment.

#4 WOMEN NEED AFFIRMATION

Affirmation is the fuel that powers us forward, and a true and timely word spoken to our hearts can carry us for weeks. Unfortunately these affirmative words are in short supply unless we create intentional opportunities to share them. When we do, lives are changed.
