Be Encouraged, Empowered, and Refreshed

We often find ourselves living in fear, whether it’s fear of failure, fear of not being good enough or fear of letting others down. That’s no way to live. In fact, God has called us to step out of fear and into His arms. He’s chosen us to become fearless women on fire for Him in the here and now.


The Word of Life Women’s Retreat equips and empowers women of all ages to overcome fear, discover God’s dreams for their lives and respond to His calling. It’s a time for women to come together and discover the incredible things God wants to do through us, in our families, in our friendships, in our churches and in our communities.  Come be refreshed, encouraged and, uplifted as you step away from the hustle and bustle of life and connect with each other and God.

Encounter other women of faith for a time of encouragement and sharing hearts on marriage, family and relationship with Jesus. It’s a time for developing friendships, uplifting sessions, gaining new insights, strengthen your witness and enjoy spiritual refreshment.

What people have said about our Women’s Retreat

I found the retreat at a time when worry, depression and a difficult life situation were breaking me down spiritually. Your retreat gave me hope and comfort. The women's retreat challenged me in a unique way that could only have come from Jesus Christ. I listened to the speaker and confided other women at the retreat and I left reinvigorated, filled with joy and hope. I will not forget the lessons learned here and I am already planning on coming back next year!
