Retreats

I have been blessed to have been a part of some wonderful retreats and conferences throughout my ministry.  Below is a brief list of topics that I am sometimes asked to speak on.   These are passions of mine, so I always happy to offer full retreats, quiet days, or single-session workshops.  As a full retreat, each topic is deigned to be given in 4 or 5 separate sessions.  Please contact me if you would like to discuss the possability of me speaking at your next event or retreat.
