grace and gratitude

cultivating a grateful heart that believes I have enough, I do enough, I am enough

Do you find yourself spending too much energy on what you don’t have, what you don’t do, and who you’re not? Spend time in reflection on cultivating a grateful heart. Reflect on the ‘never enough’ syndrome and begin embracing who you are as opposed to what you do. Be inspired by Brother David Steidl-Rast’s invitation to practice gratitude with a ‘stop, look, and go’ practice. Be open to the beauty of God’s grace in the most ordinary of moments so you can be ready to experience gratitude in times of stress.

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.
