And God is able to bless you abundantly, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work.” II Cor 9:8

We all have dreams that get shattered, plans that don’t turn out, choices we regret and consequences of others choice’s we must live by. Even so, your destiny is in the making! The Lord does not waste one painful experience but uses every sorrow to make us stronger, every part of brokenness to build our character and with hope and healing, we will finish strong! So, grab your girlfriends and get to the Women’s Retreat. Let’s meet the Lord through His Word together!
