“Gettysburg is a beautiful area for a retreat. There is no better place to be than with Karen and the women who attend this retreat! Come if you can. You won’t be disappointed!” – Joan Markey, retreat attendee

The Lodges at Gettysburg

Gettysburg, PA

In 2016, we held our first ever Simply Living for Him Retreat. It was far beyond our expectations, and God worked in amazing ways that weekend.

“It was an encouraging balm and at the same time an iron sharpening to my soul. I was so thankful for Karen’s complete openness and her deep desire to see Women focusing on, serving, and walking with God alone. I was so encouraged in my walk with Christ, and I am praying that I get the opportunity to attend again! Such A Blessing!!!” ~ retreat attendee

“Can’t recommend this enough! Going into it with my thoughts and left it with His thoughts! Forever changed!”
~ retreat attendee

“This was amazing today, 30+ ladies. We weren’t focused on things like race, denomination, job status, marital status or who we were voting for. We were focused on one thing, Him, God our father, the only thing that truly matters. Thank you, Karen, for helping me get back to the feet of Jesus. And thank you God for loving me enough to hand pick me to be here.” ~retreat attendee

So excited to return to where it all began..

After a few years of hiatus and the pandemic, it is time to be together again. These events have been life-changing!

We are so excited to return to The Lodges at Gettysburg in July 2022 for our next retreat! This was the most perfect setting and the perfect place to get away from distractions. The Lodges at Gettysburg has breathtaking views, gorgeous sunrises, sunsets, and is surrounded by beauty all around. You will not be disappointed!


The Simply Living for Him Women’s Retreat has always been for ALL women at any age and stage of life. And this year we are super excited to have a special guest speaker to have some special time with the younger women at the event. Grace has a pure heart for the Lord and young ladies and I have often said I wish I had had a “Grace” in my life when I was a young teen/college girl. Bring your older teens and young adult women in your life. We will all spend the weekend together- it’s beautiful when generations spend time together- but we will also have some special teaching sessions just for the young women. Our theme this year is “Sit at His Feet.” Do you know the posture of sitting at someone’s feet in Bible times was an act of surrender to a Master? Not only will we learn how to be still and get rid of distractions so we can hear His voice, we will also learn how to live as a servant of Christ. Join us! July 13-15 in Gettysburg, PA!
