Psalm One Ministries
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 2018 Wisconsin Pastors' Wives Soul Care Retreat (February 22-24, 2019)
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 2019 Psalm One “Sisterhood of the Fishbowl” Soul Care Retreat February 22-24 at beautiful Green Lake, Wisconsin.
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.
Space is limited, so sign up early. To register for this retreat:
1) Drop me a quick email to confirm we have an open spot.
2) Click here to print and fill out your contact information.
3) Mail the form with a check for $170 (payable to Psalm One Ministries) to Linda Kline, Pastoral Director of Psalm One Ministries, 6344 Inverness Way, Mason, OH 45040. (No refunds available after February 1.)
Most people find the questions very helpful personally, as well as helping me gear the retreat for you all. We do not have credit card payment available. In order to keep costs as low as possible, we have a very low tech system. I hope to change that soon, but in the meantime, please forgive our old school process.
Questions?: 513-226-0025. Leave it all behind for a while and come away for a great time with the Lord and some of His finest fellow creations. Hope to see you there!
