PLUS, I am answering all those who ask, “Am I doing enough?” in your homeschool, and what happens AFTER high school? A MUST-LISTEN message!

We purposely schedule the retreat activities to begin later, allowing you to truly rest and renew…and sleep in if you wish! Or enjoy a quiet walk by the lake, on the hiking trail, and some breakfast on your own. Continental breakfast is available in the lodges for a small fee.
10 AM: Worship with Robin Miller Conference Room
10:30 AM Session 1 How Do We, Miss Jesus? (Karen) Conference Room
In this session, we will begin to explore who Mary and Martha were, and specifically focus on Martha. She was easily distracted and anxious, while Jesus Himself was in front of her. Many of us do the same these days. Let’s dig into what the Word teaches us about being distracted and deal with the things that are taking your eyes off of Jesus these days.

In Matthew 6:25-34 Jesus tells us not to worry. He tells us to seek God first and He will give us all we need. This is not so easy to do as gas prices rise, grocery prices escalate, and our bank accounts are draining. Yet, Jesus tells us that our Heavenly Father knows what we need. So let’s stop normalizing worry and normalize following God. Are you going to trust Him today or do you put your trust in the fleeting tangibles of this world?
