This is what the LORD says: “Stand at the crossroads and look; ask for the ancient paths, ask where the good way is, and walk in it, and you will find rest for your souls…”  – Jeremiah 6:16 NIV (c.1978)

Map out your midlife at the Grace & Sass GF Retreat.

Are you struggling to figure out where you’re going in this season of your life? The Grace & Sass GF Retreat is the perfect opportunity to spend some time away, focusing on nothing but where God is leading you in your journey.

But some journeys aren’t meant to be undertaken alone. The Grace & Sass GF Retreat has been specifically designed as a time for you and a gf (or two) to spend time together in an intimate environment, sharing and listening to one another’s stories, dreams, and desires. Over the weekend, you will dig into where you are now, and begin seeking God’s direction and discernment as to what He has in store for you in 2018.

I spent 11 months going through the full 8-lifemap portfolio with my own sweet gf…..and I can promise you, they will take you through a whole gamut of emotions: disappointment, discouragement, fear, restlessness, hope, desire, excitement, and joy. It is for this reason that I strongly suggest you embark on this journey with a close friend or two, who know you, and in whom you can confide. And I promise you: If you approach these life maps with an open heart, God will show up!

The Grace & Sass GF Retreat is a time for you and your gf’s to relax and have fun together….but to also explore what comes after the retreat. My prayer is that each one of you find the revelation and insight we did….and discover how to make the most of your midlife doing just what God has purposed you for! There is no greater joy than that.
