Words really can’t express how much this weekend meant to me. Return to Rest has turned into something so sweet and special over the years! While it was only my 2nd time speaking at the retreat, it felt like I was home. The women I meet, the sunrises I get to see every morning over a frozen lake, the coffee, the worship, the Scripture study and discussion… I left with my heart simply overflowing. I think every lady there would agree!

I love this film that Meredith from Heart Stone Films created. It perfectly depicts the beauty and rest we experienced that weekend!

To tell you a little bit about it, my friend Ruthie founded Return to Rest 4 years ago. It was created for women who feel burnt out – whether it’s in business or in life – it doesn’t matter. Just anyone who needs soul rest – a getaway weekend with the Lord. You can read all about it on the website here.




For me, this weekend was just what I needed. If you’re considering going, I highly recommend it. You’ll be nestled in a cabin on a frozen lake for 3 days, with tons of time to spend with the Lord, studying, worshiping, and resting. Oh – and all of your meals will be prepared FOR you! You don’t lift a finger. It might be one of my favorite parts of the entire retreat!
