First Refresh Retreats pics and testimonies
Our First Refresh Retreat
We held our first free retreat for ministry wives at the Historic Southern Hotel in downtown Covington, Louisiana. Hear from the women who attended below.
Michelle said, “My husband and I have been in full time ministry for six years and recently planted a church in the New Orleans area. Our schedule is very busy, and oftentimes loneliness can be hard to deal with at times. This past weekend I attended a Refresh Retreat and I was overwhelmed with blessings.The weekend began with a get to know you session with the other pastor wives. I instantly connected with these women. Its as though our spirits connected as sisters in Christ because of our common bond and we became close friends. Over the course of two days, we shared our hearts with one another. We laughed, we cried, we prayed for one another, for our families. We now have each others phone numbers , emails, etc. and we keep in touch on a regular basis. Throughout the weekend I was showered with gifts, boxes of goodies, encouraging notes, massages, wonderful meals, shopping ,but the highlight of the weekend is the sessions with Diane where she shares her heart with you. Diane shares personal testimonies of her life as a pastors wife, as well as deep truths from God’s word. Ladies, believe me when I tell you this is a life changing experience. This was a time for me when I got a way from the business of my life, and allowed the Lord to speak to me,to show me some things I needed to allow him to heal inside of me and he did. I came away from this weekend a different person. I came away from this weekend no longer carrying that heavy load I walked in with. I still have a busy life. I still will have some lonely times ahead and I still with have some burdens but now I know what to do with them. I would encourage you to attend a Refresh weekend. You will be blessed.”
