Get-Away Weekend !!!!!!!!!!!!

Hey everyone! This is so exciting!---something I've been hoping for since last summer, and now God has opened this opportunity for us -- YOU and ME --to meet together!
The women's ministry at this church is graciously letting me hold 8 (eight) spots to their retreat with Jennifer Sands (I met Jennifer last summer and promise you will love her! Click here for that WCP post). 
So hurry and send me your registration---first come, first served---the Crowne Plaza will be great, and the price for this retreat is rock bottom--I admire and appreciate how they've kept their costs down! And . . . if you fly in to Cleveland-Hopkins, the hotel has a shuttle. Or even better---I'll come pick you up myself!   ferree

Jennifer has written 3 books: “A Tempered Faith” (2003) – Jennifer details her emotional and spiritual struggle in the first year after 9/11. “A Teachable Faith” (2006) – the journey continues as Jennifer shares how God uses everyday circumstances to teach us, refine us, and draw us closer to Him. “A Treasured Faith” (2009) – Jennifer illustrates her continuing Biblical growth and shares her recent battle with breast cancer.
Jennifer’s books will be on sale at the retreat.
Jennifer Sands
When Jennifer’s husband was killed in the terrorist attack on the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001, no one could have convinced her that she would recover from such an unthinkable tragedy. In 2007, Jennifer received another blow: a diagnosis of breast cancer. But Jennifer has learned that God is able to do exceedingly, abundantly more than we can ever ask or imagine when we put our complete trust in Him. Since 9/11, Jennifer has undergone a dramatic spiritual transformation from tragedy to victory in Jesus Christ. She is now determined to share her testimony of God’s abounding grace and faithfulness…and to spread a message of overcoming all the trials we encounter in life through faith and trust in Jesus Christ.

  1. Sounds like a great opportunity, but I'll probably be in Arizona. I read two of her books that I found at the library.
