Aging Faithfully

In Our Bodies, Minds and Souls

An Interactive Retreat for Women


Have you ever thought of aging as a holy invitation from God?  What are and how do you deal with the unique challenges you face emotionally, spritually and phsically as you age?  Join Mary Wood, Jen Shoutta, Donna Ferguson and author Alice Fryling as we unpack and embrace our well-being in Christ through looking at the realities of the aging process.  Enjoy beautiful Glen Eyrie and be encouraged through discussions based upon Alice’s book, special times of communing with God, and participating in practical ways to age well and steward our God given bodies.  No matter where you are in the process of aging, you’ll go home with tools to help you age well and keep the Lord Jesus as your center.  

View the schedule for more details and to see when Alice will join us for a special session! You will also go home with your own copy of Aging Faithfully 

We welcome you to the peaceful, soul-stirring property of Glen Eyrie, where you can spend the weekend enjoying the fellowship of God: he is the Author of our lives and knows every day ordained for us.

If you’d like to come earlier or stay after your retreat dates, lodging is available at a Programs discounted rate. Please call our reservations line at 719-265-7050 for details.
