Come Away {retreat for women} ~ An Intimate Retreat with Jesus

Register NOW!

Come Away Retreat


I wish I could express how much desire I have in my heart for women to have that best-friend relationship with Jesus, to trust Him completely. The Lord and I have talked about this retreat for months. I know, without a doubt, that God ordained it. He planted the idea in my heart about 2 years ago, and gently confirmed it over and over. I have prayed over it; I have asked for His guidance and thrown out more than one fleece over the whole thing. He has been so faithful to give me what I need at each step of the planning. I continue to ask Him for more….more wisdom, more insight to serve 7 ladies who long to have a more intimate walk with Jesus. I have asked Him for the big things (the venue, the teachings, the worship leaders) and the very small things (décor, food, gifts). My heart’s desire is that Jesus be in every detail.

Even though I have not known the identities of 7 ladies who will attend, I have been praying for YOU. I’m confident that God knows who you are and is gently preparing your heart to attend Come Away.

So, today is the day that registration opens. Would you like a bit of a recap of the retreat?

At Come Away we will spend the weekend engaged in worship, the Scriptures, prayer, and tuning our hearts to the frequency of Jesus’ heart. Come Away {the retreat} will offer 7 ladies the opportunity to tuck away in a beautiful cabin in the north Georgia mountains and carve out time for Jesus. There will be three sessions of worship and Bible study, as well as ample private time and space for personal Jesus time. We will seek to lay down the distractions of daily life and social media and turn our gaze toward Christ.

I am seeking women who are serious about developing an intimate relationship with Jesus, therefore, registration will require a bit more of a commitment than simply paying the fee.


  1. Beginning now, be willing to commit to pray over your time at Come Away, asking the Lord to give you a prepared heart for what He desires to do that weekend.
  2. In a letter or email, tell me your story (where you have been and where you are now spiritually) and why you desire to attend Come Away. I will need to have this piece of the registration in my hands before you pay your fee. Do not send money with your letter. I will prompt you to register and pay your fee once I receive your letter. My email address is [email protected] and my mailing address is PO Box 113, Blairsville, GA 30514.
  3. Registration will be first come, first served.
  4. Because of the intimate nature of the retreat, we will not be able to accommodate children or babies.
  5. You may pay the fee in full, or in two installments of 50% each with the final payment being due September 1st. Your fee is refundable up to August 15th with the exception of $75. I accept checks, cash, or Paypal ([email protected] and choose ‘send money to friends or family’).
  6. Take advantage of early-bird pricing now because the fees will go up by $50 after August 15th.
