But if you meet JESUS CHRIST and forget Him, you have lost everything!


Our desire is to be a mirror that reflects the light of the world – the Lord Jesus Christ!

Mary of Bethany

Jesus, therefore, six days before the Passover, came to Bethany where Lazarus was,
whom Jesus had raised from the dead. So they made Him a supper there,
and Martha was serving; but Lazarus was one of those reclining at the table with Him.
Mary then took a pound of very costly perfume of pure nard,
and anointed the feet of Jesus and wiped His feet with her hair;
and the house was filled with the fragrance of the perfume.

-John 12:1-3

What people are saying about our Mother Daughter Retreat

This retreat couldn't have happened at a more opportune time as my daughter and I were having trouble truly communicating with each other and we were drifting apart. God used this retreat to change our lives and bring us closer than we have ever been. Praise The Lord!
