Take time to unplug from your devices. Spend the day retreating with God. Allow the Holy Spirit to tend to you—heart, soul, mind, and body.

The theme of this retreat is Transforming Trust. Trust lies at the heart of our relationship with God. Growing into deeper levels of trust in God transforms everything. This is for you, whether you are wrestling in a difficult season or seeking to enjoy deeper levels of trust and connection with God. 

This retreat includes:

  • A printable Retreat Guide to lead you through your retreat (minimal ink or full color version available)
  • Suggested schedules for a personal or group retreat
  • A minimal supply list 
  • No video or audio content, so you can enjoy being fully unplugged
  • A printable “Soul Care in Progress” door hanger to help protect your retreat space

Early access opens October 7. Retreat along with the global community from October 14–16, or choose a day that works for you.

Frequently Asked Questions

This retreat is designed as a full-day event. The ideal is to get away for two nights: arriving in the evening, spending the next day retreating all day, then departing the following day. However, you can also do this from morning to evening in your own home. If helpful, use the printable door hanger sign to help protect your retreat space.

Either one! Retreat alone or gather a group and retreat together. The Retreat Guide will offer suggested schedules for both. The group schedule allows time for solitude and community. If in a group, each group member must register. 

This retreat will be a blessing to anyone who wants to grow closer to God. It’s especially designed for cross-cultural women, whether you are preparing, serving, or have returned.
