A Word From The Author
After a long battle with grief over the death of my best friend, I came to understand what it means to truly have Christ live through me. Through God's amazing grace, the Holy Spirit filled me with such joy and helped me understand God's love for us and what that means not just for me but for everyone who accepts Him.
I knew many women struggled knowing their worth, and I became passionate about sharing God's love by bringing them together to support and encourage each other. Over 5 years ago, I began planning and leading retreats. I learned along the way and am sharing with you the many resources I created to make the planning process a little easier.
~Julie Pfeifer, Loving Christ Ministries
From Retreat Guide Customers:
“Your desire to put together the hard lessons you've learned in a format that helps others who are new to this process is so helpful - I'm a relatively new pastor's wife (just under 2 years), and I have no prior experience, and no one that I can easily go to and ask all these questions. This was truly an answer to my prayers, and I have thanked God for this and for you many many times. .” ~Jane
“Excellent publication. One of the best resources I have found. Everything one needs to plan. Provokes thinking, creating, and planning for the best retreat possible.” ~Kathy
From Retreat Attendees:
“Would love to come back! Loved it and felt God with us all weekend.” ~Nancy - Create Yourself in Christ Retreat
“They were encouraging, even those whom we had just met were rooting for me, and I for them. It was a powerful experience, and when I left for home on Sunday I was no longer empty inside. I was full, overflowing with certainty, confidence, and strength. God used all of us to lift each other up. To see God working through us to be the encouragement that each other needed was incredible. I feel truly blessed to be able to have been a part of this, and I am so looking forward to the next one.” ~Janelle - The Joy in Jesus Retreat
“Every day was filled with love, laughter, wonderful music, creativity and a deep-rooted faith that was evident in every detail.” ~Linda - Christ's Love: The Way He Moves Me Retreat
