Summer One-Day Event
Saturday, July 21, 2018 – Woodruff Electric Cooperative Community Room
3201 Highway 1 North, Forrest City, AR 72335
We all face challenges.
In most instances we probably carry around our challenges like extra baggage that we could lay down… if only we would. At this one-day event we’ll discover things about ourselves, learn how to identify our challenges for what they are, and determine how we can face those challenges head-on.
There’s no magic bullet to remove our challenges, but we can deal with them in a healthy way when we recognize our challenges for what they are and understand them better. We’ll take a few hours to discuss our Relational Challenges, our Logistical Challenges, and our Physical Challenges. In other words, we’ll discuss our relationships, our time, and our health. You may not find quick answers, but our goal is for you to leave with the tools you need to challenge your own personal challenges and come away the winner.
Registration fee is $25 per person, and the fee covers a continental breakfast, lunch, and materials for each of the three sessions.

Fall Three-Day Retreat
Friday, September 28 – Sunday, September 30, 2018 – Hot Springs, Arkansas
Sometimes our soul just gets in a wad.
That was the only way I knew to describe how I felt. I was preparing to take the podium at a women’s event when two dear friends asked if they could pray for me. What came blurting from my lips surprised me even more than it did them.
“Yes, please! My soul is in a wad!”
How unspiritual did that sound?! But it was the most honest assessment I could convey. Everything inside me was in a tangled mess and I knew that only God could sort it all out without unraveling me.
The Untangle Retreat guides women through a process of unplugging, uncluttering, and getting a better grasp of how simple and singularly-focused our lives can be when we determine to put aside the unnecessary things and live a life focused on what God deems most important for us.
This retreat is expected to begin at approximately 5:00 on Friday afternoon and conclude at approximately 11:00 Sunday morning. Carpooling may be available upon request.
The Untangle retreat guides you to receive a word from God. One word. Your own unique word for the entire year that will empower you to live for God with clarity, power, and passion. Your One Word word crystallize your vision and learn to put aside many of the “good things” in life to make room for the best thing God has planned for you. You will learn to live with focus. To be more aware of God at work around you, and to live intentionally, refusing to waste another day wandering aimlessly through life.
We will work our way through the little book by Jon Gordon, Dan Britton, and Jimmy Page, One Word that will Change Your Life.
…as you experience the One Word process, know that you are not just shaping you; you are also shaping the world around you. You are creating your One Word legacy. (page 81)
This is more than a self-improvement retreat based on a self-help book. This book was written with the purpose of helping each of us determine where God wants us to be and how He wants to guide us.
There’s a word that’s meant for each one of us – a word based on where we are in our lives and where God wants to guide us. (page 38)
After preparing your heart, all you have to do is plug in and listen up. Then God will reveal your word to you. (page 39)
It’s not some magical formula, it’s simply learning to unplug from the distractions that vie for our attention and our energy on a daily basis. It’s determining to focus on God, to hear His voice, and follow in Him in the clear and singular way He wants to lead you.
Unplugging. It’s the basis of all our retreats, and its foundation is from the very example Jesus set for us.
But Jesus often withdrew to lonely places and prayed. Luke 5:16, NIV
Getting away from every distraction with the sole purpose of connecting with God for renewal and revelation.
This Untangle retreat combines the concept of getting away with the purpose of learning how to live our lives with focus and purpose. Learning how to live intentionally. We hope you can join us!
Due to space considerations, we will be able to accept a limited number of participants.
Registration fee is $225 per person.
Registration fee includes all lodging, study materials, and meals from Friday evening’s dinner through Sunday morning’s breakfast. To learn more or to register, click here.
