Five years ago two friends met over a cup of coffee at Panera Bread. Both had a heart for women’s ministry. As they shared, one of the friends suggested that they plan an event together. Sometimes you just need someone to help you with your dreams.
That was how my dear sister, Venus Schrader, and I began designing weekend women’s retreats and events to help women come together to find healing, rest, and fellowship. Out of Beauty for Ashes retreats we have witnessed women healed, ministries birthed, and friendships discovered.
This year, we almost didn’t have our event. But as we waited on the Lord, He showed us a way to hold Beauty for Ashes safely following COVID restrictions. Rather than a weekend long retreat, we will hold a one day event with two separate times. Each group will be limited to 25 attendees.
- Group 1: 10:00AM -2:00PM- Lunch provided by Shell Island Resort
- Group 2: 4:00PM-8:00PM- Dinner provided by Shell Island Resort
Theme of the Event, Rejoice!
We all have experienced a challenging year in 2020. Sickness, job loss, quarantines, and political turmoil, have shaken the world. It’s time to start fresh, to begin anew, and to discover the secret to battling all the world wages against us. It’s time to find the secret to joy even in the darkest places.
Three Speakers, One Message, Joy!
Venus Schrader spent years in pursuit of emotional healing from the traumatic events of her childhood. On the brink of throwing in the towel on life and God, she received the revelation that she was Daddy’s Girl. This opened the door to a process of healing that has forever changed her life. It is her prayer that her testimony of a loving, redeeming Father will help other women find healing and wholeness too.
Debbie Hufham has a desire to show women they can trust God. A message about obedience is not something most people run to hear, but her belief is that “faith is the key; obedience opens the door.” She invites you through the door where you can find peace, hope and trust in God.
Andy Lee (that’s me) loves teaching the Bible and encouraging women more than eating chocolate. And she likes chocolate a lot. Her desire is to help women discover the reality of a tangible, loving God, their calling, and the power and life hidden inside the Bible.
