Clergy spouse participants have said:
  • "This retreat was a much needed eye-opener for me on several levels. Scripture about Sabbath came alive, music activities inspired renewal,  and the "real-life scenario game" made it clear how I'm prone to work vs celebrate and worship God. I would still be floundering and spiritually exhausted without this program and the coaching."
  • "I loved the engaging activities, the practical take aways I will implement, and the love your presence displays."
  • "It exceeded my expectations!"
