Life is changing and you're wondering... 

Now what?

You sent your child off to college and you're wondering what this means for you. You're thinking about retiring but you don't know who you are without your job. You've lost a relationship and suddenly you need to live life differently. Or maybe nothing is different on the outside but you're sensing a subtle change within you. Something's different but you can't place your finger on it. 

It's time to explore. 

Change is a normal part of life but it can feel scary or confusing. You may feel frustrated, fearful, or secretly wondering if there's a way to get through it without any pain! Regardless of how big or small your change is, it's important to give yourself the sacred time and space to honor it and reflect on it if you're wanting to find new life from it. 

It's time to find hope.

How does an online retreat work? 

You'll receive an uplifting email every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday morning linking you to a private page with a reflection to read and a question to share with others in a supportive and encouraging environment. The retreat lasts four weeks. It is self-paced and we keep it open for a couple months afterwards so you can catch up in case life gets busy. 

Do you have to be tech-savvy?  

We've had participants of all ages and tech abilities and most have found it to be easy to participate. If you feel comfortable opening an email and clicking on a link, you'll feel comfortable with the online retreat. We're always available for immediate help.

I'm Busy. How much time will it take? 

You can expect about 20 minutes per email. (You receive three emails a week.) The beauty of an online retreat is that you can reflect and share online whenever it's convenient for you: in your pajamas at 5 AM, on your phone during your lunch hour, or with your iPad while lying on the couch late at night. You can spread it out and reflect a little each day or save it all up for a special time on the weekend. It's all about convenience. It is self-paced and we keep it open for a couple months afterwards so you can catch up in case life gets busy. 

Is the online retreat different than the day retreat? 

Yes. The six-hour day retreats are on the same theme but they are presented differently. The big picture concepts will be the same but they will be explored in different ways and with different material. The beauty of an online retreat is that you're given four weeks to allow the concepts to build on one another and really take root and grow in a deeper way. The beauty of the day retreat is the opportunity to experience the concepts in a more experiential way - in your mind, body, and soul - through prayer, music, meditating with the scripture, and sharing. Both options are beautiful and unique in their own way. If you decide to register for both, you won't feel like you're experiencing the same retreat twice. 

Will I need the Personal Retreat Journal? 

No. In the past we have used Retreat, Reflect, Renew: A Sacred Journal for A More Peaceful You as our guide but we will no longer be using it for the online retreats. 

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

I had never participated in a retreat before, so I thought an online retreat would be a good way to start a personal spiritual journey in a very non-threatening way. I loved it as it has opened my heart to new beginnings of courage and trust in God’s strength for me. I’m very much looking forward to the online retreat in October!

I’ve been really busy so even though I’ve loved all of your past online retreats I didn’t know if I should sign up for this one. I’m so glad I did! I took time to nurture my spiritual self, gained a better understanding of discernment, and learned practical tools to carry forward. Thank you!
— Cathy P.
Thank you! I went into the retreat feeling down in the dumps - tired and depressed - but even though I was squeezing it into the day, it was enough time to slow down, pray, and reflect. It really helped me feel more grateful and it lifted my spirits.
— Debbie J.
I hesitated to sign up because I’m a senior citizen and I felt intimidated doing the retreat on the computer. When I finally decided to sign up, I was surprised how easy it was for me to participate. I was especially excited when I didn’t even have to ask my husband for help in using the computer because it was so people friendly. I even gained more self confidence in my computer skills. If I could do it then anyone can.
— Vicki F.
Thank you both for a most wonderful online retreat! I so looked forward to my three days a week (and in between!) “visiting” with you and renewing my spirit! It was a wonderful experience for me! You girls are doing great work spreading The Word!! For every moment you have spent developing this retreat, it is very appreciated! Love and prayer coming your way every day!
