The Ladies Mini Retreat
Love, Joy, Peace
The Women's mini retreat offered a peaceful day for the 35 women who attended.  The Keynote speaker: Joy Sims was just that: a joy.  She loves the Lord, lives her faith, sings like an angel, and made us laugh.  I can't say she made speeches: she didn't.  She spoke from her heart of her faith in God, and how we can bring Jesus into our hearts.  It was inspiring to listen to her.
Lunch was soup (4 different kinds!) and salad and tea, coffee, and lemonade.  There were women there from many different churches and denominations.  It was great seeing new faces and making new friends. 
You could choose two of four workshops.  Makeovers (Alice Harmon), Make It-Take It (Deanna Spence), Music, Music, Music (Naomi Martin), and Sign Language (Karla McQuillen).  I chose Music and Sign Language.  If anyone has pictures of the others, please send them to patchern@aol.com and I will get them on this site.  I hope we have more of these types of events...they are fun and offer companionship, education, and a chance to have a quiet day away from the everyday stresses.
