Ingrid reminded us that we are not just moms, wives, teachers, home managers, etc, but we are daughters of the King, and beloved by him! Our WORTH comes not from how well we teach spelling or clean the house or manage our budget, but our worth comes from the fact that we are God's creation and his precious children. Michele taught that our BEAUTY isn't measure by our weight or our haircolor, our wardrobe or our words, but from our relationship with Jesus Christ. This was a very good reminder for all of us women.
Late September is a PERFECT time for a beach retreat! The weather was gorgeous.
Ready and waiting for us to arrive!
Singing along to praise songs and worshiping with scarves and flags on the beach!
We made all-natural skin care products from coconut oil, apple cider vinegar, honey, salt or brown sugar, cinnamon, probiotic powder...
We were a wonderful mix of brand new homeschool moms, seasoned homeschool moms, and even a couple of retired homeschool moms.
One of our activities involved choosing 5 stones or shells and writing 5 words that the Lord was impressing on you to release or embrace. Later, we had some time to do something creative involving those words, or even to just rest and meditate. I chose to spend that time with watercolor.
