Hello everyone! Summer has come to Alabama and it’s only June! We have been sweltering already and the hot part is yet to come!
We have been talking about the Seven “F” words to my Legacy for the past three months. We looked at Faith, Family and Friends. Now “Mama’s Legacy” has been published and you can read about the other four “F” words (Fitness, Finances, Fun, and Future) in the book because we are changing topics this month.
Have you gathered your group of ladies together yet or are you still in the recruiting process? Now is a great time to identify your group and one way to bring them together and get started with a “bang” is to have a lady’s retreat. You may have a full day or overnight (the best) to get to know each other. Even if you already know each other, you will be amazed at how much more you will grow together as a group once you have a retreat. I have written a book called “A place of Sweetness” and its available on Amazon. It provides you with a lot of tips and tools to use. WIGS will help you plan your retreat if you like and provide speakers and anything else that you might need. We are going to have a workshop/course about hosting a ladies retreat this summer and if you begin to think about it now, you will be ready to move forward with your plan for your group.
It may be a Sunday School class, or a Bible Study class. It may also be a neighborhood friends or co-workers that want to get together and grow into a group of women with a heart for serving others, on fire for the Lord. You will be amazed at the synergy (big word that means getting more done by working together) that is created during the hours of a well-planned retreat and you can do it! Yes you! If God has called you to lead a group of ladies, then He will equip you with everything that you need to accomplish His will for you. Take this month and begin planning;
- How many in the group to start?
- Who you will ask to join your group?
- What kind of retreat do you want to host (overnight or all day)?
- Who will help you?
- Do you know of a place to host your retreat?
We will provide you with any or all the help that you need to get started. We will announce dates for the workshop in plenty of time for you to participate. We can even do one-on-one training with you if that’s what would work better for you. Begin now to pray and ask God to lead you in making decisions that are best for you and your group. He will provide the answers. I promise. I have witnessed Him over and over.
I will be praying for you as you prepare to join us on this wonderful adventure.
