Fall Afresh | fall 2018 women's retreat | roving hearts

something awesome has been coming together perfectly and we are ready to launch just a little piece of that. my dear cousin and close friend brooke and i are working together on some really beautiful new things that God has whispered to us separately and we are being brave and making space in our lives to make this thing real. we don't know what it looks like exactly or where it will take us but we believe. and that's enough to get us up in the morning and moving in a direction! 

we want to be intentional and slow, but not timid or afraid of the unknown or complications that may arise. we aren't naive. we trust God can use us, exactly as is, in the present.

and so, we invite you..  

we have a fall retreat (our first of many we hope!) planned for November! and we have SEVEN openings. we are keeping it very small so it can be true and intimate and deep and as helpful to hearts as possible. our fall 2018 theme is “Fall Afresh” and we invite women who need a fresh start and some time away in the woods. we have a small group of leaders (four women) who will lead us in meal time, yoga mediations, barefoot walks and tennis shoe runs through the woods, learning how to add things to our lives or take them away when needed and with grace and freedom. we invite you to pray with us and for us and for the women who will come to this retreat! we know this is all in God's hands and that's exactly where we want it to be. we want this to be the beginning of something beautiful and fruitful. if you are interested in being a part of this, please contact brooke or myself!

Awaken my soul, come awake
To hunger, to seek, to thirst
Awaken first love, come awake
And do as You did at first

Spirit of the Living God come fall afresh on me
Come wake me from my sleep
Blow through the caverns of my soul
Pour in me to overflow,
to overflow

Spirit come and fill this place
Let Your glory now invade
Spirit come and fill this place
Let Your glory now invade
