November 1st-3rd, 2019
Come and join us for an impactful weekend with other like-minded women as we seek the Lord together and adventure in His incredible Creation. This is one of our favorite weekends of the year and we thank the Lord in advance for how He will minister to us this November!
Theme: Journeying Through Wilderness Seasons
"Therefore, behold I will allure her, and bring her into the wilderness and speak tenderly to her" (Hosea 2:14 NLT).
There is a Holy invitation before us in these ancient words spoken by God, through the prophet Hosea; Words that are just as fresh for our hearts today as they were thousands of years ago when they were first spoken. The concept of wilderness in the Bible is used as the backdrop for seasons with God that emphasize hunger, dependance, formation, and intimacy with Him. It is often in these wilderness seasons that God reveals Himself to His people, that He tests, strengthens and makes steadfast the hearts of His children, and that He prepares them for the purposes that He has for them in the spaces that they occupy.
The invitation into the wilderness is for those of us who have forgotten our way. For us who know that we can no longer go back from where we came. It is for us who need a reminder of who we are, where we are going, and who we belong to. This invitation is for those of us whose knees feel wobbly and who long for hearts that are steadfast; for us willing to be wholly undone before a Holy God and who have faith just wild enough to believe that He can indeed make us whole again.
I pray that you would join us for a weekend in the wilderness and that you would leave having heard the tender voice of God for you right in the midst. - Jalene Elsa Buyer (2019 Ladies Retreat Speaker; View her website here: https://elsaandfoster.com/about/)
