Barb, who lead us and lit a candle of hope in each of our hearts.
She gave us the feeling of unconditional love and acceptance for who we are and where we are in our life's journey.
Together, we shared our stories and sang our songs. We felt the presence of the Holy Spirit, and left with a new kind of tired and a new kind of energy. What I love about this retreat is that mothers and daughters come together, friends, sisters, cousins, and people who need time away might come on their own, but leave feeling they are not alone.
Mothers and daughters
My cousin Angie and I provided the music. She and I have similar backgrounds, grew up going to Mount Carmel in the summer, and enjoy making music together. Thanks, Angie, for doing the music with me. You made it so fun and gave me such confidence.
Thank you, Barb, for leading us with your gentle and encouraging spirit, filled with love.
Thank you, Mount Carmel, for providing such a lovely setting.
Thank you to all the women who attended. You are bright, shining stars.
Go. Create. Inspire!
