Are you feeling weary, run-down, drained from the day-to-day of mothering your sweet children? Though God calls us to never grow weary in well-doing some days just wear on us a little more than others. When we don't take time to rest and restore in the Presence of the Lord we tend to lose our way and fall short of the Fruits of the Spirit He empowered us to live in.

If you need to be encouraged in your walk you will not want to miss this powerful weekend. Above Rubies Ladies Retreat at Shocco Springs Christian Retreat Center offers a get away with God and other women who are seeking Him. You will come away energized, encouraged with a brighter vision and a joyful heart.


Comments from previous retreats:

"The retreat was all I thought it would be, PLUS MUCH MORE! I drove over nine hours and I'd have gone twice as far if need be! My husband was so happy to get me back - CHANGED!"
"Your teaching about the 'Strategies of Satan' at the Texas retreat gave me insight and tools to build my family. I loved the practical applications you gave. I will never forget that 'I am doing a great work and I cannot come down'."
"As you speak the truth to the ladies we take it home to our husband and children which changes our whole family. I was so blessed by your words at the Olympia retreat. I have found myself repeating many of your phrases around the house."
"My young daughters and I attended the retreat last year and it changed our lives. God opened my eyes to so many lies that I was living in. That retreat was the diving board for me and God's truth is producing such beautiful new fruit in our family life."
"This was my first retreat and it was so much ABOVE AND BEYOND what I thought it would be."
"It was a powerful weekend of inspiration, encouragement, conviction and revelation."

Marriage of Honor & Respect

Created to Be His Help Meet book

I am currently in the process of reading through "Created to Be His Help Meet" by Debi Pearl of NO GREATER JOY MINISTRY for a second time as well as using her journal to delve even deeper into the heart of God's purpose for me as helper and lover to my husband.  It has been a life changing book for me.  I have learned what God expects of me as a wife.  My eyes were opened to how I needed to check my attitude towards my husband.  Do you need a check in your marriage relationship today? 

"The difference between a good marriage and a lousy one is not found in good husbands and good wives versus bad husbands and bad wives, for all marriages are made up of two sinners with lots of faults.  A good marriage is good because one or both of them have learned to overlook the other's faults, to love the other as he or she is and to not attempt to change the other or bring him or her to repentance.  A bad marriage is not one that contains more faults between the two of them; it is a marriage where one or both of them gets worked up over issues that good marriage partners let slide and cover up with love and forgiveness.  When a woman gets it in her mind that she must change her husband before she will allow him to relax in the security of her honor and respect, she will never see so much as the bottom side of a good marriage, except when she is kissing hers good-bye." [From Chapter 13 "The Great Mystery"]

Are you honoring and respecting the man God created especially for you?  Are you covering his faults with love and forgiveness? Is it time to fall on your knees to repent for attitudes that fall short and that tear down your man?  Come before a merciful God that brings peace through His perfect plan for you as a wife who helps meet the needs of her husband.  Receive his Grace and Forgiveness and live the blessed life He intended you to live with your soul mate.

Call 9-1-1!

Fear

 Torment
    
     Doubt


These subtle tactics of the enemy of our souls sneak in daily to destroy our faith and trust in the Lord.  Each  new day brings challenges and opportunities to choose...



I call heaven and earth to witness this day against you that I have set before you life and death, the blessings and the curses; therefore  CHOOSE LIFE  that you and your descendants may live    ~Deuteronomy 30:19
The test has been set before us.  God has given us the multiple choice answers.  He then has given us the answer.  CHOOSE LIFE! 

Today, as you choose to be a helpmeet to your husband, a mother consistently discipling your children and a Daughter obedient to the King stand in the face of the enemy when fear and torment and doubt war against you.  God has given you His lifeline.

Call 9-1-1. 

HE WHO dwells in the secret place of the Most High shall remain stable and fixed under the shadow of the Almighty [Whose power no foe can withstand].  ~Psalm 91:1

Then call 91:2


I will say of the Lord, He is my Refuge and my Fortress, my God; on Him I lean and rely, and in Him I [confidently] TRUST!  ~Psalm 91:2
