Women’s Wellness Retreat – Early Arrival Option

SEPTEMBER 22 @ 3:00 PM – SEPTEMBER 25 @ 1:00 PM


Discover Your Strengths ~ Your Unique Gifts from God

You are a unique, strong, resilient woman who has been given special talents from your Creator. Yet, you are human, which means you (and the rest of us) experience doubt, stress, and fear. On the surface, being strong may look like ‘having it all together’. But that’s not the case; it means being connected to an inner source of strength that guides us.

Managing stress and doubt begins with understanding yourself, and the nature of God. To understand yourself means to know your basic nature, the potential of your strengths and the limits of your weaknesses.

What would it be like to understand your natural gifts better? How would you like to manage the stressors in your life more effectively?

In James 1:17 we learn that every gift is from God, including the unique talents He has given you. And in Philippians 4:8, Paul encourages us to think about whatever is noble, right, pure, lovely, admirable, excellent, and praiseworthy. We are to practice and expand the good that we find in ourselves, in others, and in God.

At the Women’s Wellness Retreat this year, join Carol deLaski to explore inner strength.

You will learn to:

  • Know yourself better by identifying/developing your natural strengths, your gifts from God.
  • Know God better with techniques to stay connected (especially when you don’t have it all together).

This retreat will be an opportunity to rest in God’s presence, open your heart to Him, and let Him fill you with inner strength. He delights in you and will renew your confidence in yourself and in His abiding presence.

Thursday and Friday:

This early arrival option begins with check-in as early as 3pm on Thursday, so that you can have an extra day to unwind. We will have a prayer gathering after dinner on Thursday. On Friday, you’ll have free time and time to walk around the Center’s beautiful grounds.

Massages are also be available to schedule on your own for an additional fee. Massage Therapist Michelle Lisenbee (www.michellelisenbee.com or email at michelle.lisenbee@gmail.com) will be available all day on Friday for appointments: 1-hr. massage or reflexology appointments for $85 or 15-min seated massages for $25. Guests need to contact her for appointments and will make payments to her directly.


After your relaxing day on Friday, our regular weekend guests will check in and then we’ll all gather together for dinner. After dinner we’ll have a fun, social time of games and laughter. Saturday begins with a feature presentation by Carol deLaski. Then, you will have a choice of workshops to attend throughout the afternoon. You will be emailed a list of choices a few weeks before the retreat. Saturday evening will be a time of socializing, crafts and a movie. On Sunday, Carol will close the weekend with a special presentation. Guests will depart after lunch.

You won’t want to miss this special annual retreat. Many guests return year after year and we welcome new guests too!
