Dirty diapers, sleepless nights, muddy footprints on the floors, and the endless shuttling of kids to practices… these are just a few pictures of motherhood. As moms, service, surrender, and sacrifice are daily requirements to our job, but how are we to find God in it when we can’t even finish a sentence?
Join us for an uplifting weekend away at Spiritual Refreshment for Mothers, led by author and speaker Catherine McNiel. Together with other mothers, we will look at God’s design for motherhood and how to connect with the Lord in the sacred mundane of every mothering moment.
Whether it’s clean clothes that just got chocolate smeared on them or giving the same answer for the umpteenth time, in motherhood you can often feel unseen, exhausted, and never quite enough. But God is with us and His burden is light. This retreat is not designed to talk about how you should be better or do more, but quite the opposite: we will spend time focusing on how we are always, already in His presence (even if you can’t find your Bible under the pile of dirty clothes).
Gather with us on the soul-stirring grounds of Glen Eyrie and accept this life-giving invitation to a weekend of encouragement, community, and practical practices for the mother who neither has time nor quiet.
