BELONG – Breathe Retreat 2019

Belong to a tribe, to a family, a community, a group who loves you no matter what is so precious and yet so hard to find! Christ FIRST before anything called his Disciples to BELONG to Him. Jesus still has the same invitation to us to belong to Him and in this belonging we find our true identity and who we are becoming! At Breathe this year we want to invite you to a life changing weekend to create space to wonder and dream about who you are becoming and to find a place to Belong in community and to Jesus.

  • I AM the Daughter of the GREAT I AM Discipleship: Being a disciple or follower of Jesus is a lifelong journey that is best done in community. The Discipleship Path is an opportunity to journey with other women as you grow deeper in your relationship with God, discover and develop the unique person God has made you to be, and engage in the destiny God has for you. The Discipleship Path lead by Marti Burger is designed for ALL women, in ALL stages of their faith journey.

She will cover some of the basics of Hand-Lettering and show you how to get started creating your own font based on your personal writing style. There is no experience necessary!
  • Intentional Art Experience: How do you see yourself? Do you speak loving and kind words to yourself? Are you quick to forgive your shortcomings? Do you offer yourself grace on a daily basis? If the answer to any of these questions is no…facilitator Kristin Wiehe will walk you through an artistic exercise that may help you reframe your view of yourself, modify your negative self-talk, and help you be kinder and gentler to the little girl inside of you.
