Conferences & Retreats 2015

I'm beginning to compile a list of conferences and retreats for widows this year, plus some retreats that aren't specifically for widows but may be of interest to widows nevertheless. Whenever you hear of such events please let me know and I'll update this page throughout the year.

Other types of retreats:

1.
A "silent retreat" is for the purpose of prayer. If you want to get away from the world to spend time in prayer, but in the safety of a group setting with some security, counsel and guidance I hope you'll consider this one. I met the director, Donna Lewis, at a pastors wives gathering I was privileged to attend only weeks after my first husband died. Donna was just beginning to launch it and she has faithfully kept me in the loop ever since. This retreat is tried and true! Click here for more info.

2.
My friend Beth says that Billy Graham's, "The Cove", in the North Carolina mountains near Asheville, offers 2 types of WONDERFULLY, quiet Spiritual Retreats -- 1) Personal Spiritual Retreats, where you bring your own study, or 2) Guided Spiritual Retreats. One can come alone or with friends. The cost is not cheap, BUT you are surrounded by the beautiful mountains, a wonderful room, and scrumptious meals where you gather with others and meet and share. Beth went on one of these and says, "I had a super experience and it was a place that I absolutely needed to go to get away and be with the Lord without distraction."

Here is their website:
