Wisconsin Pastors' Wives Retreat

Are you tired? Worn out? Burned out on religion? Come to me. Get away with me and you'll recover your life. I'll show you how to take a real rest. Walk with me and work with me--watch how I do it. Learn the unforced rhythms of grace. I won't lay anything heavy or ill-fitting on you. Keep company with me and you'll learn to live freely and lightly. (Matthew 11:28-30, The Message)

The 2017 Wisconsin Pastors' Wives Soul Care Retreat (February 23-25)

Do you long to learn to live freely and lightly? Has it been a great year of growth and encouragement? Or are you barely hanging on by a thread? Would you welcome some tools to keep your heart alive toward God? Are you hungry to draw near to Jesus and fill your soul? Do you need some rest? Do you just want to laugh a little? No matter where life finds you, all ministry wives are invited to join us for the 2017 Psalm One “Sisterhood of the Fishbowl” Soul Care Retreat February 23-25 at beautiful Green Lake, Wisconsin.

 

We are pulling away for:
• Soul care and spiritual feeding
• Time alone with God
• Rest and relaxation
• Fun times with fun women
• Life-giving, non-ministry, non-work-related unplugging

 

Soul Care...


Doesn’t that sounds good? Get away with Jesus, and rest, and laugh, and learn, and be refreshed. Just for a few days, leave behind the busyness, and the pressures, the worries, the responsibilities, the concerns, the kids, the husband, the noise…

We have such a wonderful time on these retreats! This is a very special place. We have a beautiful house to ourselves, right on the lake. Reveling in God’s creation. Digging deep in His Word. Tools to help you keep your heart alive toward God. Ideas to help your family walk in freedom and joy. Encouraging and strengthening one another. Hiking trails. Time to just be still and know that He is God.

 

Most of us take care of everything and everyone except ourselves. We might know how to run, crash, burn, recover, run, crash, burn, recover…but what about integrating the healthy holy rhythms of Jesus into a life of work, play, rest and prayer? We serve a God who loves us more than we can every fully comprehend. He wants His life to flow naturally out of a heart that is rested, restored and centered on Him.

The cost of this retreat will be $170, which covers your housing, food, and materials. A few partial scholarships are available if finances are tight. Space is limited to 12 women, so register NOW. This is open to any woman whose husband is a full-time pastor, no matter which hats she wears: pastor, counselor, mother, attorney, accountant, nurse, teacher, or chief cook and bottle washer. So feel free to forward this to other pastors’ wives who might enjoy a weekend of fun, laughter, strengthening and encouragement! Let me know if there is anyone who’d like to be kept in the loop. I certainly hope your church will send you. If finances are tight, we might have a few partial scholarships available.

We may think we can't afford to take 48 hours away just to be renewed and refreshed and recharged. But in reality, we can’t afford not to!  Life happens, and there will always be "emergencies" (according to someone's definition) ...places to go, things to do, and people to see. So if you're waiting for a completly free block of time in which there are no demands on your time, you'll wait forever. Make a decision to carve out this time for your own soul health. And what could be better timing: February can be awfully dull and dreary, so decide now to be encouraged and recharged after a long winter. We'll enjoy ourselves around the fireplace with some unwinding, sharing, input, prayer, lots of laughter and life-giving time with the Lord--all with the encouragement of others who understand life in the ministry.
