  • Downloadable Quiet Time Studies – We have written a quiet time study for each of our retreats.  It is our belief that in the midst of all the activities of a retreat, it is important for women to take time to spend in quiet time with the Lord and His Word.
  • Recommended Reading – This is a list of books that we recommend for women.  We always have book reviews at our retreats, hoping to encourage women to fill their minds with the Word of God, and books which point them to God.
