Anna: RTR 2015


- What was one of your biggest takeaways from the Return to Rest Retreat? I constantly think about the fact that God rested on the 7th day of creation. My desire to keep working through the sabbath and resistance to rest is actually a reflection of pride in my heart.

- How has Return to Rest affected your home life / work life / marriage? Its more clear to me what constructive rest is. Rather than plopping down and watching tv for hours, spending time with the Lord, reading, quality time with my husband, etc. has proven to be much more restful, rejuvenating and inspiring.

- Are there any practical rest or Sabbath tips youā€™d like to share since attending RTR? My life looks a lot different now that I have a baby, but I'm intentional about carving out time to spend with the Lord in "sabbath sessions" during nap time. Those moments of solitude are vital for my emotional and spiritual health!

- What encouragement would you give to someone who is considering registering for our January retreat? I was most blown away by the simple beauty of fellowship & worship with other women who are committed to loving and serving the Lord. I feel like that is hard to find in Boston. It is amazing and refreshing to be AWAY and disconnected from the insanity of day-to-day to truly rest and hear the Lord. It is so worth the time and money. It was just what my soul needed and a weekend I will never forget!!
