You are not crazy for craving soulful rest, as your job title of Mom is exhausting and sometimes pays only a few hugs. Mothering is tiring, taxing, and often laced with tears, so this Genuine Mom’s Retreat is a sacred space for your heart, mind, and soul to return to a rhythm of peace, hope, and grace. These scripture-rooted retreats are designed as spaces for you to unplug from the everyday hustle and purposefully reconnect with God, your heart, and other women. You are worth the investment of time, talent, and treasure. So, pre-pack the meals, and schedule the sitter, so you can have this intentional time to rest and reset.

our 2022 retreat at
 Gold river retreat

in november 2022 the genuine mom's journeyed to the mountains for rest, relaxation, and restoration. 

The Lord led the Israelites out of Egypt to save them from slavery and usher them into a new life - a new mindset - bring them out of the familiar (slavery) and into the freedom only He could provide. He moved them so they could experience His salvation and live in the fullness of who He created them to be. He led them out of Egypt as a pillar of cloud. Training them to look up. To have a new posture - directing their heart to understanding. 

God stirred this inside us this past weekend. He called us out of the familiar and into a new mindset - a new way of life. He called us to lean in, listen closely, seek Him like silver and hidden treasure. For He has wisdom and peace for us - a peace that surpasses all understanding. 

Just as God moved the Israelites in stages - 
As the clouds move, you move
When the clouds stop, be still
He is moving us in stages. 

We followed His first cloud to camp. 
As a pillar of fire He counseled us Friday night. 
As the rain poured down on Saturday we were still
As as the clouds parted and began to move on Sunday we headed back home

As new women




And on our way to being restored. 

My heart is on fire for what the Lord is doing with his daughters. He is bringing His women out of the old into the new. He is calling us to be in community - a genuine community - with vulnerability and transparency. I am so grateful for Him. My life has been made better by all of these women. What an honor to be with them, to serve them, and to walk by faith with them.  I can not wait to get our monthly Genuine Mom’s group going again in a few more months. 

What are Genuine Moms 

saying about 

the retreat?

It was god-inspired and led. I am beyond excited to see how he continues to lead us all from here! looking up and moving with Him in the fullness of his joy! 

Not being dramatic when I say it was a once in a lifetime, "you had to be there" kind of weekend! This group of women came together - many of us strangers - and showed up authentically. We shared and prayed, cried and laughed, and just loved on each other.

Thankful feels like an understatement for this weekend. It was full in such a different way than normal. Thankful for quiet moments with God that don't seem quite as easy to find in everyday life. Thankful to walk away feeling restored, reconnected, and rested. 

It is so refreshing to know that as women, and moms, as lonely and isolated as we sometimes feel, we aren't alone. This past weekend I had the privilege to be around a group of women who shared one goal - leave "different" than we came. God moved as we shared our struggles and stories through laugher and tears. We showed our genuine selves!
