Here is more information about our retreat in Vermont next fall…

Woodstock, Vermont holds a very special place in my heart and I am so blessed to be able to share it with everyone who will join us next Fall for our VERY 1st Art & Faith Creative Retreat in the U.S.A.


We are THRILLED to gather together in the beautiful crisp fall air for this fun week of art, faith and inspiration! We will enjoy meals together, explore the picturesque town of Woodstock, (think Gilmore Girls) come together in the class room for our art classes, Bible Journaling time and morning devotions. We will also take time to enjoy the fall colors and take walks, ride bikes and go antique shopping. Morning devotions will be outside in the gardens if the weather permits and we will take advantage of the hotels gardens with a demonstration in the Kelly Way Gardens. There will be free time to tour the area on your own or with your new friends, and we will encourage you to take time to “be still” in these incredible surroundings.


We have asked Sheila Atchley to join us AGAIN… because we had SUCH an incredible week in Italy together this past October! We really felt the Lord moving in the lives of those who attended in Italy and afterwards we both felt a calling to come together again. So what better place to bring another group of women together than New England in the Fall!


Classes are not finalized yet, but there will be 4 - 5 classes with Sheila and I. They will include Bible Journaling, Mixed Media art, painting and whatever else the Lord puts on our hearts to share with you. I would love to explore mixed media techniques that bring in nature through out walks together and combine those elements in our art.

We are looking forward to this retreat so much! We love hosting our retreats in Italy and France, but we also love our own country and have had a lot of women ask us to host them here in the USA. We have wanted to do this, but only recently has it felt like the Lord has opened the doors to do a retreat here. So we look forward to what He is going to do through this retreat next fall.


Here are the details of the retreat. Please look them over and prayerfully consider joining us. We have limited space for this retreat due to the time of year. (peak season for fall foliage) We also like to keep our retreats small so we can all come together and then leave with a new community of friends that we can share our faith and lives together with.
