Take a look at the questions buried in your heart. 

Who am I? Why am I here? How can I find more meaning in my life? Are you holding these questions deep in your heart and not sure what to do with them? Are you wondering where God is in the middle of those questions?

Take the time to nurture them. 

These are life-long questions that can be stressful to hold in your heart if you don't take the time and space to reflect on them. They require quiet time to hear the gentle voice of God. And they require reflection and sharing time to help you see things with a different perspective and connect with a merciful God. 

Take a gentle journey within.

Start living into the answers to those questions by taking a journey within. The Journey Within day retreat is about discovering your authentic self and discovering God. We hope that through this journey, you can grow to appreciate all that you already are and be inspired to grow into all that you still can be, no matter your age or stage in life. Explore your images of God and reflect on what gets in the way of experiencing a more intimate and trusting relationship with God. 

Come and see.

If you're wanting to grow closer to your authentic self, if you're looking for more meaning in your life, or if you're trying to grow closer to God and don't know how, you'll appreciate this retreat. Come. Take a gentle journey towards discovering your authentic self and discovering God within. That's the exact place where Christ's spirit is shining within you and trying to work through you. You may know that in your head. This retreat is about helping you experience that in your heart.

Listen to what past retreat participants have to say...

I thoroughly enjoyed this retreat! It came at a perfect time for me. I needed all of these good ideas and methods that I can take home and practice in my everyday life. Thank you Christine!

Before attending one of your retreats I felt disconnected to my faith and myself. The retreat restored my passion for the church, myself and God. I appreciated meeting women who were positive, inspiring and compassionate about saying yes to taking caring of themselves. Now I’m feeling less guilty for taking time out for myself and I’m learning to find a happy balance in my life with God.

I never miss these retreats because they give me the chance to take the time check in with how I’m living my life. They help me look into myself and life in relation to God’s place in it. Thank you!

Christine’s smile, faith-filled humble spirit, and great sense of humor about her own life struggles made everyone feel comfortable in sharing personal stories and innermost thoughts during both small and large group discussions. Everyone left the retreat feeling renewed and encouraged to continue doing God’s work!

I have been to a lot of retreats - I’ve always been very active at church and currently teach religious education - and this was the best retreat I have ever been to. In many ways it reminds me of a Cursillo experience- very moving. Your questions moved me and helped me see patterns in my life I hadn’t seen before.
