From the Real Refreshment site:
Inspiring. Uplifting. Encouraging. Real Refreshment Retreats are designed to recharge your spiritual batteries so that you can effectively minister to your husband and children with the joy and selflessness that God intends.A Real Refreshment Retreat will affirm, energize, and inspire you as you join with other moms like you to celebrate the homeschool journey together. Whatever difficulties and opportunities you’re facing at home, you will find you’re not alone.In Philippians 4, the apostle Paul exhorts us to choose joy regardless of our circumstances, and then he provides a checklist for us to measure our thoughts by: “Whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things” (Philippians 4:8)This year at Real Refreshment Retreats we will focus on thinking on these things. We are going to look at each of these qualities, define them, and consider what it means to think about them. God is faithful to speak to each of us through His Word, and we trust that He will reveal Himself to you through His Word at one of our retreats. We hope to see you at one of our events in Baltimore or Atlanta. We are already praying for our time together!Apologia invites you to a Real Refreshment Retreat designed to encourage and support homeschool moms.
My experience at the Baltimore Retreat last year was simply amazing. The Real Refreshment Retreat is different from a typical homeschool weekend or convention. The focus is on our hearts and there aren’t the usual distractions of curriculum and vendors halls calling. Not to mention, the time of year is perfect...I know in March I am feeling Spring fever and lagging in the energy department to push on until the end of the school year, and I came home renewed and refreshed last year-and motivated to finish the year strong!
The speakers are the best of the best. Heidi St. John, Zan Tyler, Raechel Carman, Debra Bell, Elizabeth Smith, and Sheri Seligson are all scheduled. There are also beautiful and authentic times of worship and prayer. You will leave feeling truly refreshed!
