Registration Now Open

For our Ruth Training Retreat for widows feeling the call to minister to other widows.

Just a note to let you know the pricing and dates for this retreat, along with registration information.

When is it? You will need to arrive in Sandbridge, VA on Wednesday afternoon, March 19 3-5 PM and leave on Friday morning March 21, by 9:30 AM.

What will the retreat cover? If you feel like this season of life has left you feeling called to minister to other widows, this is the training retreat for you. Our team of writers want to personally get to know you and hear your hearts on ministry. We will have hands on training for writing, speaking, and group ministry skills. Participants will come prepared to share their stories, and relax on the first night.  The following day, we will train our participants in writing, speaking, and facilitation.  That night we’ll enjoy sharing each other’s talents and encouraging one another.

How many are going? We are opening up registration to take in only up to 14 guests.

Where will we stay? The fabulous beach front luxury home we will train in has one king sized bed in each of 7 rooms, and four bunk beds in each of the other two rooms.  In order to make sure we can reach as many readers as possible with this retreat we will first offer the rooms with the king sized beds at double occupancy. We realize some ladies may prefer a room to themselves, and if the rooms with king sized beds are not filled, we can offer that privacy with a premium of $175 added to the price. Sharing a king sized bed or a bunk will allow readers to join in at the regular price.

How much does it cost? The price for a regular bed arrangement for the retreat is $349.  During the holiday season, until January 1, we will offer a $50 early bird discount.

What airport to I fly into?  Norfolk

Do I need a rental car or shuttle? No, our team will pick you up and drop you off at the airport, so no need to spend money on a car.

What is your cancellation policy? Refunds are granted prior to January 15, 2014. A $100 cancellation fee will apply. No refunds will be granted on or after January 15, 2014.  It is important that we have our committed team of retreaters by the end of January because our writer team will begin connecting with you and preparing your for the retreat to come!

Please fill out the following form and pay the registration fee using the Paypal connection below. We will confirm with you when we have receive both the cleared payment an the completed registration form.

The price for the retreat is $349 per retreater. This price includes two nights stay, dinner for both nights, 2 breakfasts, and one lunch.  Meals are prepared in the kitchen as part of the team experience, so retreaters will be expected to help with the team.

The sleeping arrangements are comfortable, but will require some sharing.  The house is large and luxurious, over 10,000 square feet of gorgeous.  But to enjoy it, we need to at least double up in rooms.  The rooms are well decorated and spacious, so we should be very comfortable. The $349 rate is for double occupancy or quadruple occupancy, depending on whether the participant is placed in a room with one king sized bed or in a room with four twin bunk beds.  Some women are particular about having their own bed, and the bunks work well for them.  Some women don’t mind sharing a large king sized bed and would prefer a roommate with a king sized bed.  If there is available space, we might allow a couple of rooms to be used as private rooms, with a $175 premium paid for those rooms.  We will give first preference to the double occupancy, however, to try to offer the retreat to as many of our readers as would like to come.

The retreat will be packed with training and sharing experiences including hands on practice with writing, speaking, and group facilitation.  It will be a chance to meet team members from the A Widow’s Might writing team.

To complete the registration, please do the following:

We’ve Heard! You Want Retreat!

Last week so many of you told us you want to join us in March for a retreat, that we are convinced we need to do more than one. In fact, so many responded that we could fill the retreat up many times over!  The Lord wants widows together being nurtured by His word.

So we will hold not only the retreat in March but two other types of events.  Here is the plan….

Mini-retreats.

Starting this winter, A Widow’s Might will hold very cozy retreats of up to six ladies at a time for a weekend at a beach villa–concentrating on specific topics like parenting as a widow, or dating during widowhood, or what to expect for your future. These will take place near Charleston.

Then in March, we will hold the beach retreat for twelve ladies.  The dates will be sometime during the week of March 15-23.

Next October, there is a larger widow’s conference in the works.  I’m working with Ferree Hardey of A Christian Widow’s Place and Rachel Britt, financial planner who ministers to widows, on a conference tentatively in Myrtle Beach.  We have decided on a name for the conference– A Widow’s Light.

More soon ladies!  God is good!!

 

We are keeping a list and can include you on our email updates about retreats and conferences.  Just fill out this form, and you’ll be connected!

Please know, if you have already filled  this form out and have received an email back from us, then you are already signed up and do not need to fill it out again!

I pray your Sunday fills you with God’s love and that the message you might hear today from a pastor touches you exactly how you needed to be touched.

March 2014 Beach Retreat for Our Readers

by Kit Hinkle

“My presence will go with you, and I will give you rest.”

Exodus 33:14

Beach Retreat

The word speaks of rest. Of fellowship. Of gathering of those with like minds and circumstances.  A place to get filled up and replenished for the work ahead of us—t he work of moving through grief, or the work of continuing on as head of household, or the work of continuing our husbands’ businesses.

A Widow’s Might will hold our first Widow’s Retreat this coming spring on March 21-23, 2014.

The idea first came about because our team of writers wanted to retreat together and pour our love and fellowship into each other for a few days at the beach.

Then we thought of all of our readers we have ministered to and by whom we were ministered back over the years, and we wanted to meet you, face-to-face, and pour more into you.

And so we will hold a retreat during the time of year when God brings about new beginning in His creations.  Since it is our first retreat, we will invite everyone, but will limit our guests to twelve widows.

You will be amazed at the beachfront home we have our retreat scheduled for. A gorgeous home in Sandbridge, Virginia. It’s right on the water and sleeps twenty-two guests—enough for our writer team and at least twelve of our readers.

We are working through the details about costs and logistics, but we do know we will not only allow time for fellowship and connection and prayer and rest, but we will be presenting many workshops on healing the hurts of widowhood through a relationship with Christ.

If you are interested, let us know!  We’ll start keeping a list and include you on our email updates about the retreat.  Just fill out this form, and you’ll be connected!
