2018 Retreat Recap

Let your roots grow down into Him and let your lives be built on Him.  Then your faith will grow strong in the truth you were taught, and you will overflow with thankfulness.  Col. 2:7

  • I can honestly say I have not been to a better, more thoughtful retreat where I was pampered and loved.
  • Not only was it an informative event, it felt very intimate and personal, and your attention to detail was spot on!
  • I was in awe by the quality of speakers. Such solid and meaningful content. Very applicable – even for a weary, waiting mom. Bottom line, it all blew me away!
  • I feel a sense of healing after bonding with women I had never met in a such a deep way. It's something I can't even explain to others.
  • Laughing, having heart to hearts, and then laughing again...I can't tell you how refreshed I feel!

"When the rest of the year is about taking care of everyone else, there just aren’t enough words to thank all of you for the few days where others choose to take care of me. God works through every tiny detail, every effort and ounce of energy that all of you put forward, to refresh and nourish my soul."

The Woven by Love retreat is a wonderful ministry to moms of adopted children. Educational, renewing, and, most importantly, Christ-honoring, the uplifting weekend is always one we look forward to hosting.  We pray that the genuine relationships, valuable teaching, and the tears and laughter shared make lasting impacts upon the families and children from all over represented at the retreat.

I've been blessed with new friends, shedding the feeling being alone and unsure where to turn.  Not being sure of what to expect at the retreat I was pleasantly surprised at all I would leave with! New friends, knowledge, inspiration, a better understanding of a much bigger picture, hope and a new found strength. Each breakout session was exactly what I needed to hear, the worship time was exactly what I needed and The Closing ceremony left me without words!

A God-glorifying conference specifically designed to connect adoptive moms from all walks of life with others who UNDERSTAND. The organizers of this conference are beautifully humble people that love the Lord and love pampering and encouraging these women. We come home filled with hope and faith and camaraderie, ready to dive back in to life. I wish Woven had existed when I was first starting our adoption journey!
