Inspired Women Events

Be inspired! Breathe in the Divine Breath.
God dreamt you up and then he created you. Imagine the moment of inspiration....What solutions do you carry? What beauty from his image do you reflect? How does your expression bring him joy and usher his light in? When you make space for God to answer these questions, he brings inspiration to your life. "Inspire" means to breathe in the divine breath. When we connect with God's voice, his exhale is our inhale. We have what we need to move forward to be what he dreamed.
When we plant ourselves in God's presence, His divine breath infuses us with life causing us to flourish in every season. 
 At Inspired women's retreats we encounter the person of Jesus, the life of the Spirit, and the heart of the Father with in the context of community.

Be Inspired...
When we hear God's voice, we tap into his inspiration over our lives. The breath of his spirit revives our hearts and dreams. We are called to rise up to the fullness of our stature.
 
"Arise, shine, for your light has come, and the glory of the LORD rises upon you."
Isaiah 60:1

Glow...

With each glimpse of him, we radiate with his likeness from the inside out. We reveal his beauty by being who he created us to be, made in his image.

 

"We all become like mirrors who brightly reflect the glory of the Lord Jesus. We are being transfigured into his very image as we move from one brighter level of glory to another."

2 Corinthians 3:18

 "I love how the Spirit is welcomed so freely. These retreats have been a catapult to freedom for me."

A note from our Founder...

The retreats were born out of my spiritual life coaching practice. I have been honored to connect with some incredible women on a journey to go deeper with God to heal and rise up to the fullness of their stature. Many of them were aching for authentic community so I began small groups for them to gather. The momentum of bringing them together was powerful. So I wanted to create a space for us to gather in a retreat setting. My best friends championed me and helped me bring the vision to life. We’ve hosted five retreats since May 2018, and a powerful community is growing! We come from various churches and cities. 

 

 At my core, I’m a healer who loves connecting people to God’s voice and remove anything that’s hindering them from oneness with him. This can be lies we believe, wounds, isolation, busyness, shame, bad doctrine, etc. I believe that healing and growth happens best with in community. I’m blown away by women who rise up to champion each other and the level of vulnerability they’ll allow themselves, given the right atmosphere: honor, safety, empowerment, love.

 

I create spaces for women to gather regularly because the fruit is undeniable--we are impacting homes, work places, and churches. God’s gathering his warring women to prepare them for what’s to come and I am honored to participate with him!

We are better together. Join us!
