Why Attend a Retreat?
Our lives are very busy with children, spouses, siblings,
parents, work, school, etc. As much as we try spending
quality time with the Lord it is challenging. Distractions,
excuses and good intentions all play a role in creating
stumbling blocks towards achieving this worthwhile goal.
Thirty Three years ago, our First Lady discovered retreats. In a beautiful, serene setting she discovered that you can spend quality time, studying, worshipping and praising the Lord, and enjoy it!
