I enjoyed your article. I too have experienced those retreats that seemed to fall short of my expectations. But I agree with your husband, our retreats are really within our own hearts. Thanks for sharing and Congratulations on your first anniversary!
Good story and meaning. Watch your run-on sentences and the 'was' word. Thanks for the apt word!
Wonderful meaning. Very touching.
I'm pleased that you found your 'retreat' after all. Thanks for sharing.
Very well written message, loaded with meaning.
I love the way God speaks to us through His Word and then confirms it with circumstances and our loved ones! Sounds like you have a great foundation for your marriage!

Thoughtful and real. You summed up your experience well here: "He reminded me that a retreat wasn’t about a weekend away; it was about the state of your heart. I didn’t need to go away to quiet my heart and make time for the Lord."
Amen :)
Well done. Why haven't we heard more for you? Hope to see more of your work on the Challenge and through the FW Forums. Blessings.
