Who We Are

Woven is an annual adoption retreat whose passion is to connect, equip and refresh moms along their adoption journey.
 
 

Connect

 Meet other moms in all stages of the adoption process. Listen, laugh, cry and be encouraged by each other’s experiences. 

Equip

Gain a better understanding of the heart and needs of your children. Leave with new tools and renewed motivation for taking care of yourself and others in your home.

Refresh

Spend some time on a weekend getaway. Rest up, eat snacks, and breathe deeply as we’re reminded of our purpose and identity in Christ.

Kim Scholten

 

Kim is the founder of Woven by Love and an adoptive mom and wrangler to four kiddos ages 14 and under. She calls “The Middle of Nowhere” home with her husband of twenty plus years where they go for long, romantic golf cart rides on summer nights. She has a love for sarcastic humor, green tea, label makers, Chipotle for dinner, and babysitters. Her passions include engaging the church community in matters of justice and writing about stuff that’s real and hard and worth it.

Janine Nieuwenhuis

 

Janine is a free spirit who infiltrated the West Michigan Dutch community when she married her husband, Luke. During her favorite season, summer, she is most likely found on the shores of Lake Michigan, hair permanently pulled up, while her four children run wild and dig up “treasures” in the sand. Janine’s deepest passion is to be a part of God’s redemptive work by empowering the poor, advocating for justice, and being a voice for the voiceless.
