Ladies' Retreat #1


  • Silver Birch Ranch N6120 Sawyer Lake Road White Lake, WI, 54491 United States (map)

Ladies will enjoy this encouraging weekend of Biblical teaching and excellent worship times mixed with just the right amount of activities and relaxing times.

Ride a horse in the national forest, trap shoot, jump off the Leap of Faith, or just go for a walk. Take advantage of this great opportunity for making lifelong memories and recharging your spiritual batteries.

 

Retreat Speaker - Robyn Dykstra

Robyn Dykstra is a captivating national speaker and author. For decades, Robyn has been presenting life-changing messages to help thousands of women trust and follow Jesus. Her book "The Widow Wore Pink, A True Story of Life After Loss and the Transforming Power of a Loving God" was inspired by the events from her own life. Events she didn't plan or want.

Abuse. Addiction. Anxiety. Betrayal. Divorce. Death.

If you've experienced loss or trial in your life - whether self-induced or thrust upon you, you'll want to hear Robyn's encouraging discoveries for how to energize your faith in God and find the strength to face life's challenges.

Surprisingly funny and refreshing after all she's been through, Robyn is a Humorous Speech Champion and hilarious storyteller. Through her in-depth Biblical teaching and funny personal illustrations, she will have you laughing one minute and crying the next as you discover fresh truth from God's Word through her teaching and storytelling.

  • Loggers’ Breakfast - Let us serve you as you start your morning out right. Premium blueberries carefully blended into fluffy pancakes are served with sausage, juice, and coffee at this wooded site near the water’s edge.
