One of my favorite ways to reflect and actually have undisturbed, productive and fulfilling time to sit with God, to create, dream, set goals and work has been to have a creative writing retreat.
I’m willing to bet, if you’re reading this, you’ve been craving that time for a creative writing retreat, too.
Keep reading for your chance to join us for our third #LetYourWriteShine retreat, promising to be a transformational weekend for your faith, your writing and your life that will equip you with the tools to MOVE forward in your creative journey.
RSVP for our LIVE Twitter Party from the event! This Sunday, 2-19
Transformational Christian Women’s Creative Writing Retreat
I’ve grabbed time away for myself, have invited friends to our beach cottage, or have taken time far away to create, reflect and write. Each time, the setting has been different. Yet, after I’ve committed the time away, I always get “back to life” feeling closer to God, refreshed and accomplished, ready for the next phase in motherhood intertwined with creative aspirations.
Here are 5 reasons YOU need a creative writing retreat
- There’s never enough time in the day when you’re at home.
- Being in the presence of other creative writers helps spark your own creativity.
- Time and money set aside and invested into your dreams always produces a return on investment.
- A gorgeous and peaceful setting dedicated to the Lord will inspire you and ignite visions.
- The time with like-minded women away in God’s presence wanting to glorify Him is priceless.
You can see the incredible recap from our spring and fall retreats here.
As a full-time homeschooling, work-from-home-entrepreneur mom juggling a mile-long to-do list, I know the real life challenges. I get how hard it is to grab focused time to be with the Lord, to write and to work in between math lessons, co-ops, laundry, housekeeping, grocery stores and chores. Yet, I also know many of us are called to write. We are called to share glory stories of God’s goodness, faithfulness, and the challenges we’ve navigated in this life to experience His glory. And I also know what a blessing it becomes to myself and others when I’ve been able to use my creative gifts.
We need a creative writing retreat.
With my love of hosting, dear friends who are fellow writers and passion for writing retreats, we’ve created this third amazing Faithful Women’s Worship, Working & Writing Retreat
Our the time is anointed! You’ll be in the most incredible setting, be challenged and encouraged, pray and worship together, eat amazingly well, drink tons of coffee, build an incredible sisterhood with like-minded women and a secret Facebook group, and leave with an incredible “SWAG” bag full of blessings from incredible partners!
Check out some of the posts from the last time:
Consider this your official invitation. Spots are very limited. Seriously. There will be about twenty women, including the incredible leaders. Your small investment into your dreams starting at $477 is priceless. If you booked an oceanfront hotel for two nights and had to feed yourself, you’d spend this much money, and it wouldn’t be in the company of like-minded women in this glorious oceanfront setting thanks to Newman-Dailey Resort Properties!
