Lisa Appelo, True and Faithful Blog,

"This resource saved me many precious hours on planning my first retreat. Even though I had years of experience as an event coordinator, I needed specific help for hosting a retreat. The forms were easy to edit and use as registration materials for my event. I appreciated the suggestions for the retreat agenda and activities to try. The ladies who attended my retreat were impressed, and I give Julie lots of credit for helping me organize the retreat behind the scenes with this excellent planner! Highly recommended especially if this is your first time hosting a retreat." Sarah Geringer, Sarah Geringer Creates,

“Julie has written a concise Planning Guide for Women’s Retreats or Conferences. It contains everything you need, from start to finish, without having to search elsewhere. She includes forms and direction for the initial planning stages through to the evaluation meeting held after the event.  

Basically, everything you need is in this Planning Guide. What Julie has provided is your shortcut for a successful retreat.”  

Cindy Barnes, Women’s Ministry Leader - Women's Tabletop Friendship,

From the basics of how to get started all the way down to the details of themes, speaker, music, and so much more; Julie has everything covered. I plan to use this as my go-to manual when my retreat plan comes to fruition in the future. It is an invaluable resource.” Kimberly Dewberry, Tranforming Normal,

    From Retreat Guide Customers:

    "Your desire to put together the hard lessons you've learned in a format that helps others who are new to this process is so helpful - I'm a relativtely new pastor's wife (just under 2 years), and I have no prior experience, and no one that I can easily go to and ask all these questions. This was truly an answer to my prayers, and I have thanked God for this and for you many many times." ~Jane

    "Excellent publication. One of the best resources I have found. Everything one needs to plan. Provokes thinking, creating, and planning for the best retreat possible.

    From Retreat Attendees:

    "Would love to come back! Loved it and felt God with us all weekend." ~Nancy (Create Yourself in Christ Retreat)

    "They were encouraging, even those whom we had just met were rooting for me, and I for them. It was a powerful experience, and when I left for home on Sunday I was no longer empty inside. I was full, overflowing with certainty, confidence, and strength. God used all of us to lift each other up. To see God working through us to be the encouragement that each other needed was incredible. I feel truly blessed to be able to have been a part of this, and I am so looking forward to the next one." ~Janelle (The Joy in Jesus Retreat)

    "Every day was filled with love, laughter, wonderful music, creativity, and a deep-rooted faith that was evident in every detail." ~Linda (Christ's Love: The Way He Moves Me Retreat)

      Do you offer any refunds or guarantees? Yes! If you plan and hold a retreat and truly didn't need this guide for any part of it, then you can email me a copy of your agenda within 90 days of purchase for a full refund.  

      Will I receive access to guide updates? Absolutely! Every time I update with additional resources, you'll receive access to the new edition.

      What format is the guide delivered in? Good question! You'll receive an 90 page PDF file. Within the guide, you'll find links to customizable forms and other valuable resources. 

      Could I just find this information for free online? You can find just about anything online these days, but does that mean it's actually valuable? No! I had such trouble finding the resources I needed to plan my first retreat that I developed my own and assembled them in this convenient guide to save you the frustration I faced in the beginning.
