Great Lakes Captivating Women’s Retreat


Jesus has a special place in his heart for women… For you and for the restoration of your heart.  In Isaiah 61, Jesus says he came to heal the brokenhearted and to bring freedom for the captives.  Our salvation is not just a “ticket to heaven” but an act of restoring our hearts here on earth.

Set deep in the heart of every woman are three core desires.  Every woman longs for Romance, to play an Irreplaceable Role in a great adventure, and to be the Beauty in the tale.  It is for such that we were made.

So, the key message is this: Your heart matters more than anything else in all creation.  The desires you had as a little girl and the longings you still feel as a woman – they are telling you of the life God created you to live.  He offers to come now as the Hero of your story, to rescue your heart and release you to live as a fully alive and feminine woman.

Would you go with us on this journey?  Join us for our four-day event as we journey together into the deep mysteries of our feminine souls in order to aid Jesus on His own mission of restoring our hearts.  Through teaching sessions, films, music, guided periods of reflection and journaling, worship and beauty, we’re inviting you to take the risk of coming alive as a woman – God’s captivating woman.

(This retreat is based on the book Captivating by John and Stasi Eldredge. Please note that they will not be present.)

Who are we?  Many men have been affected by the message of Wild at Heart and attending the Hearts Alive & Free retreat.  As they bring the message home to their wives and families, we are some of the women whose hearts have been changed on the journey.  We can’t wait to have you join us!
