"These resources 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."

DOES THIS SOUND LIKE YOU?
You know you should be busy planning, but you aren't sure where to start or what to include...
Let's face it--there's nothing more difficult than having the desire to bring women together to connect in Christ, only to feel like you're too busy and never actually able to take the time to gather resources, plan activities, and support and encourage one another.
You know that you should be planning the agenda in order to move forward. Maybe you've even tried asking others for help developing your theme and activities.
And yet, it's not quite working.
You don't have enough time. You're unsure of all the steps to take. You need help creating forms, flyers, and materials.
Other people make it look easy. But for you, it's been anything but. You thought that the hard part was going to be hearing God's call, but as it turns out, that was only the beginning. And now you feel like you must have heard Him wrong.
Well, guess what?
You are not alone.
Most women's ministry leaders initially feel the same.
The truth is that having a step-by-step plan to create a dynamic, faith-filled event is a game-changer, one that will guide you through the planning process, provide materials so you can focus on relationships, and even include custom templates for you to personalize your event.
The problem? Not having the time to collect or create resources, being unsure where to begin, and not knowing what lesson you want to share often make planning a successful women's retreat more trouble than it's worth.
But what if there was a way to make sure you got it right?
HELLO, I'M JULIE
And I want to help you plan, develop, and organize a nurturing Christian women's retreat once and for all.
Hi there! As a former women's ministry leader, I understand how difficult and time-consuming it can be to plan a women's retreat.
I spent many years in ministry leadership roles and know what it's like to scour the internet for hours looking for ideas and resources for retreats and other ministry events.
Because I have a background in technology education, it made sense for me to create forms, flyers, lesson plans, and more, and now I want to share what I've created with you.
My prayer is to save you time and stress in gathering materials so that you can focus on building relationships among women and with Christ.
Thank you for being here at Loving Christ Ministries to share Christ's love with me. What a blessing it is to serve you!
CONSIDER WHAT'S POSSIBLE...
Imagine having ready-to-use resources so you can focus on what matters most - connection with Christ and with others.
Here's what that would look like....
You'd have a step-by-step guide to walk you through the planning process so you wouldn't have to worry about where to start or what to do next.
You'd get done-for-you templates you can customize or use as-is so you don't have to spend time creating everything from scratch.
You'd have meaningful, easy-to-use theme bundles with everything included so you wouldn't have to scour the internet trying to find materials.
You'd have the confidence to lead a group of women in order to nurture and grow connections in Christ and with one another.

“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
