"This resource saved me many precious hours on planning my first retreat. Even though I had years of experience as an event coordinator, I needed specific help for hosting a retreat. The forms were easy to edit and use as registration materials for my event. I appreciated the suggestions for the retreat agenda and activities to try. The ladies who attended my retreat were impressed, and I give Julie lots of credit for helping me organize the retreat behind the scenes with this excellent planner! Highly recommended especially if this is your first time hosting a retreat." Sarah Geringer, Sarah Geringer Creates,

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 7 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
