Select Your Sessions on the Registration Page
Workshops are filled on a first-come-first-served basis. Once a workshop is filled to capacity, we will remove it from the registration options. If the workshop you wanted to attend is full, don’t worry; most of our workshops and general sessions are recorded. They will be posted on our website following the retreat.
Feeding Your Soul
Our days as women are busy with multiple obligations: family, work, ministries, housework, etc. The lists of meaningful obligations are lengthy! But stopping and taking intentional time for refreshing our souls with truths in and through Scriptures is vital to help us through our busy days

It’s Time for a Marriage Checkup
As wives, our days are often filled with either a blur of activity or a pattern of sameness. It’s easy to assume our marriages are fine–or at least as good as could be expected. But when was the last time we paused for a few moments to evaluate and look for ways to improve? If you are ready for encouragement to glorify God more in your marriage, join me for a checkup.

A Glimpse Of Heaven
“Heaven! It’s not just something I sing about and talk about. I’m really, really, really going to be there one day!” Does this make your brain almost spasm? What do we know about our eternal home? What will we do? Will we know each other? Come dig into the Scriptures and find out about this wonderful place reserved for the child of God.

I Changed My Mind!
“I changed my mind!” We often use this phrase when shopping or planning a menu! But did you know you actually CAN change your mind, the “default setting” through which you respond to each situation and relationship? Believers in Jesus Christ don’t have to continue to be negative, anxious, angry or critical. Carole will share truth about transforming your thoughts with candor and humor.

A Biblical Response to Rebellion in the Home (Personal Testimony)
One of the deepest heartaches of a mother is that of dealing with the rebellion of a child. We know from God’s Word that our trials are always for God’s glory and our good; but fleshing out that truth to please Him is something I was unable to do without some major surgical “heart work”. Our great God uses some of our deepest heartaches to draw us near, to show us Himself, and do a wonderful work in fulfillment of His promise in Philippians 1:6, “Being confident of this very thing, that He which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ:”
Please be aware that this workshop will not be recorded.
