The Inspiration Behind this Retreat 


The quote above speaks to my soul! I know many women who feel called to do something in these last days. We don't remember receiving assignments in the life before this, but we feel a longing, a leaning, an urging, a craving to do something we feel we are supposed to do. Can you relate? 

As a life coach and presenter, I love helping people become and do what God put them on earth to become and do. It lights me up inside! For many mothers, there are stages where our full attention is put on our deepest mission of family and home, which is the most important, eternal work we will ever do. There are other phases where many women feel called of God to do something else, yet they still want to be excellent mothers, because "No other success can compensate for failure in the home" (David O. McKay). This retreat is about helping us gain clarity and inspiration from God, gaining empowerment and tools to see our gifts, overcome obstacles, boost our faith, and live our God-given missions, whatever your stage of life!



Savor time to relax, connect, visit, learn, ponder, and journal. Nourish your body with health-boosting meals. Get rejuvenated and recharged to live a more inspired, purpose-driven life.

  • Maybe you feel like you're supposed to do something but aren't sure what that is
God needs each of us to do our part to get the world ready for the Savior's return! 

I've been deeply touched as various women have shared with me the personalized missions they feel called to fulfill. We know we made promises and accepted assignments before this life, and we certainly want to accomplish what we came here to do!  Yet many of us feel self-doubts, we don't know how to do it, and it may look and feel utterly impossible to accomplish the inspired ideas we've received. 

You are not alone. 

I've experienced those feelings many times before. In fact, those are indicators that you're on the right track! The good news is, it's part of God's plan for us to have tasks we cannot accomplish on our own without His help. Yet God did not send us to earth to fail, but to succeed gloriously! When you receive God's will, you receive His power to do it. I have experienced the triumph of pushing through those doubts and obstacles and accomplishing what God has asked me to do. This retreat is about your path, your journey, of listening to those promptings, gaining clarity of what God wants you accomplish, connecting with others on a purpose-driven path, and finding the tools, empowerment, and revelation you need to move forward in accomplishing your missions. 

One of the beautiful blessings of feeling called to do seemingly impossible things is that we must become a different person to accomplish them. 

Transformation is one of the gifts God gives us when we step forward and say, "Here am I Lord, send me." It takes a lot of courage! Some goals are so big that we can't achieve them until we grow into the person who can. The scriptures and history are full of people whom God called and then qualified to accomplish the things He inspired them to do. 

You are one of those people. 

Step forward and take your place! Join other purpose-driven women who are on a similar path. Come to this retreat to find more clarity of your purpose, tools to push past the fears, doubts, and other obstacles, and empowerment to accomplish what you feel called to do!  



What a blessing to live in a day and age when women have more of a voice than ever!

Here is a video I created months ago about women in the last days rising up and doing whatever it takes to accomplish their missions.

More Quotes that Inspired this Retreat 


“Sisters…step forward! …Speak up and speak out…We [need] your unique influence. ... You...possess distinctive capabilities and special intuition you have received as gifts from God. ...[We need] your impressions, your insights, and your inspiration. Take your rightful and needful place in your home, in your community, and in the kingdom of God—more than you ever have before. I plead with you to fulfill President Kimball’s prophecy. And I promise that as you do so, the Holy Ghost will magnify your influence in an unprecedented way! We need women who know how to receive personal revelation, ...women with the gift of discernment...We need women who know how to make important things happen by their faith...women who know how to call upon the powers of heaven to protect and strengthen children and families; women who teach fearlessly… women who can speak out” (Russell M. Nelson, “A Plea to My Sisters,” Ensign, Nov 2015, emphasis added).



This is the prophesy Russell M. Nelson referred to in his quote above. 




Image result for 1 nephi 3 7












"Brigham Young prophesied 'that in proportion to the spread of the Gospel among the nations of the earth, so would the power of Satan rise.' ...  As evil increases in the world, there is a compensatory power of revelation and spiritual gifts given to the righteous. The Lord gives us added power as we are willing to remain righteous in a wicked world. ... As the world grows darker, the light of the truth shines brighter. As the hearts of men become colder, the warmth of the Savior’s peace burns stronger. As the noise of tempting voices shout louder, the still, small voice of the Spirit comes with even greater clarity. As evil increases in the world, the Lord sends the power of revelation and spiritual gifts for the righteous. Teach our sons and daughters that there is an important work for them to do. ... The Lord has a work for each [person]" (Neil Anderson, "A Classroom of Faith, Hope, and Charity," Broadcast for CES instructors, February 28, 2014, emphasis added).
