Launch out on a vacation for your heart!

What would life look like as a beloved daughter of God – cherished, embraced, gathered in?  How do we move from being a “religious employee” who continually struggles to do enough, toward a nourishing life lived beneath Jesus’ delight?

As we experience a deepening sense of God’s affirmation, grace, acceptance and care, our inner world becomes hopeful, alive, and rich. This in turn flavors all our relationships – with spouses and children, co-workers and the world!

Belovedness begins with receiving and ends with giving

We must first learn to receive God’s compassionate care into our deep places until little by little we find ourselves extending his transforming grace to those around us.

Participants will leave Beloved relaxed, refreshed, and with new joy in a life with God as his dearly loved child.

What People are Saying

You did a wonderful job of telling stories through word pictures that people could see, kind of like watching virtual video. Wow! I was particularly fascinated by the way you invited people into Scripture. You did it so simply and gently. It was a graced day!

Ministry leader

Thank you so much for coming. Our area has lots of natural fresh air and fresh water, but you have brought such fresh air and fresh water in the Spirit.
