* "Heroes didn’t leap tall buildings or stop bullets with an outstretched hand; they didn’t wear boots and capes. They bled, and they bruised, and their superpowers were as simple as listening, or loving. Heroes were ordinary people who knew that even if their own lives were impossibly knotted, they could untangle someone else’s. And maybe that one act could lead someone to rescue you right back."~Jodi Piccoult
The idea for this first retreat has always been for a special group of young women ages 18-25 whose 'Option A is no longer available' and the mothers who fiercely love them.
This gathering will be an intimate place where these brave heroes who untie one another’s knots can come away in community and rest. It will be a time of encouragement to grow stronger in their adversity, gain appreciation for the good in the hard, develop new and important relationships for support and find greater meaning as they continue to fight for the best life possible.
