“Picture yourself standing on a precipice with arms outstretched, contemplating what lies ahead.  You search, but you can’t quite see what is waiting there for you. You so want to take that leap but you are uncertain.  There is fear, anxiousness, excitement, anticipation, and hope.  Then imagine you lean into the dive and begin to free fall toward the unknown.  As you are moving, you feel loving arms around you, cradling and reassuring as they gently lay you down in a safe, soft place.  That is a tiny metaphor for my experience at the Art & Faith Retreat in Bellagio, Italy hosted by Laura McCullough.  Despite all the trepidation, my journey of faith led me to a most beautiful place, not only in a physical way, but also in a spiritual one.  How could I have imagined such a beautiful trip with exactly the right group of women?  Once again, when I trusted the Lord, He led me to where He needed me to be.  Not only was I lavished with love, gifts and experiences, I came away with abiding friendships and a deeper relationship with Him.  Laura, along with our instructor, Sheila Atchley, allowed themselves to be facilitators in God’s plan to create an atmosphere that was conducive to being present and open - to experience true JOY without exception, and to arm myself with all I needed to get through this middle thing called life.  Laura was born to do this, I truly believe that. She has such a grace and peace about her that rubs off on everyone she comes close to.  Every hour of every day was a surprise and delight as she layered genuine affection mingled with her gift of ministering to others.  I am so glad that I allowed myself to free fall into this beautiful place and time and that Laura was open to God’s plan for her.  I can’t wait to return!" ~ Lorraine Bell

“If you’re on the fence about any retreat hosted by Laura McCollough, let me tell you:  you won’t regret it and you can’t go wrong.  Laura is someone who deeply cares that each woman experience something akin to dreams come true at her retreats.  She calls upon every resource - she goes all-out to try to make sure that you not only experience the destination, and experience art-making...but that you also experience something deep and special in your walk with the Lord.  In a time when art retreats can be a mixed bag of experiences, not always honoring of faith, your love for Jesus Christ will be respected, even honored and allowed to deepen.  Please, just go!” ~ Sheila Atchley
