Girls Weekend Away

Girls Weekend Away at America’s Keswick

Friday, October 19 – 21, 2018

It’s that time of year again! Girls Weekend Away is one of our most exciting events of the year. Between our music ministry, fun games and activities, and powerful messages, this is an event you won’t want to miss.

Weekend Speaker: Lucinda Secrest McDowell

Weekend Theme: HOPE – Your Soul’s Anchor in a Stormy World

 “Rest in God alone, my soul, for my HOPE comes from Him.”  Psalm 62.5 

Feeling overwhelmed in a time of chaos and change? Wondering how to find strength and balance for your impossible life? Then join us for a weekend of soul care, stories and song — filled with encouragement and HOPE from the One who knows you best and loves you most – God.  During “HOPE – Your Soul’s Anchor in a Stormy World” we will learn how to move from hopeless to hope-filled along with our sisters while digging into God’s Word and enjoying great fellowship and fun.

Our guest speaker, Lucinda Secrest McDowell, is passionate about embracing life — both through deep soul care from drawing closer to God, as well as living courageously in order to touch a needy world. A storyteller who engages both heart and mind, she delights in “Helping you Choose a Life of Serenity & Strength.”  A graduate of Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary and Furman University, McDowell is the author of 13 books and contributing author to 30+ books. Her books include the award-winning Dwelling Places (2017 Christian Retailing BEST Award for Devotional), Ordinary Graces,  Live These Words,  Refresh! and Role of a Lifetime.  Whether co-directing “reNEW ~ retreat for New England Writing,”  pouring into young mamas, or leading a restorative day of prayer, she is energized by investing in people of all ages.

Lucinda’s favorites include tea parties, good books, laughing friends, ancient prayers, country music, cozy quilts, musical theatre, and especially her family scattered around the world doing amazing things.  Known for her ability to convey deep truth in practical and winsome ways, she writes from “Sunnyside” cottage in New England and blogs weekly at http://www.EncouragingWords.net/
