Our Weekend Getaway

If you've never been to one of our 22 annual weekend getaways, I want to give you a little taste of what it's like.  This year we had a great team of speakers and musicians, from left to right, Alicia Williamson-Garcia, Susy Francis-Thornton, me, Donna and Charles Butler and Vera Jackson.  Our retreats are the most diverse you'll find anywhere, and we rejoice in the richness of this fellowship.  In addition to great Bible-based messages and God-honoring music, we have a gospel choir on Saturday evenings, which the women can join and practice on Saturday afternoon.  It is always a BIG hit.

This year we focused on living for THE DAY, not today, truly learning to live with an eternal perspective.  It is the greatest stress-buster you'll ever find, and it will make a difference when you stand before Jesus at the Judgment Seat of Christ.  We love to sing together and worship the Lord.  It was a great weekend.  I hope you'll join us next year, April 8 - 10, here in the Chicago area.  CDs of all the messages and workshops are available at christianworkingwoman.org or call us at 800-292-1218.
