Dear Mom,

I’d like to invite you to consider attending the “His Princess” weekend seminar with your daughter [daughters] at Camp Good News. The retreat provides a unique opportunity to put what you’ve learned in the sessions into immediate practice with your daughter. While you are in the sessions, your daughter will enjoy some of the camp’s challenge activities like archery and the awesome zip line, along with Bible challenges of their own. On Saturday afternoon you and your daughter will participate together in the rappelling challenge using our 25 foot rappelling platform. In addition, you and your daughter will have some unusual opportunities to be alone in the woods as you work on some of the “homework” from the teaching sessions, or search for a hidden treasure with a compass!

Ladies! Are you looking to revitalize your walk with God? Want to feel more of His presence and guidance in your life? Join Artist Tamara Peterson and Life Coach Liz Lassa as they teach women two fresh and fun new ways to connect with God (as featured on Moody Radio’s Midday Connection).   

 

In the morning session Liz will share her shorthand approach to seeking God through Spiritual Circle Journaling. This format helps you get deep quickly, using bullet points and circles. It’s simplicity helps even non-journalers keep track of their prayer life. The result is a closer walk with God, a more focused quiet time, and a life more clearly guided by the Spirit as you see God moving in the circles! There is a quiet-time session built in to give it a try.   

 

After a break for lunch we will take what God placed on your heart from the morning session a step further as Tamara teaches Spiritual Art Journaling. We will capture on a canvas the word, verse, or phrase from your quiet time with papers, clipped images, textures, and paints. In the end you will leave with your very own “one-of-a-kind” canvas to remind you of His message for this season in your life. The only experience required is kindergarten! All materials are supplied.   

 

Check in starts at 9 am. The cost of the event is $55 and includes lunch. Register online at www.southsidechristian.com/events. Register by May 1, 2016 to be in the Early-Bird drawing for a FREE Journal. For more information contact Anne McClane This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or the church (217) 525-0304. Bring your Bible (hard copy) and a light sweater. Spiritual Circle Journals can be purchased at the event for $20 adults/$15 kids, as well as original art from Tamara Peterson (prices vary).
