and rivers in the desert.

#BISretreat Testimonies:

I am so grateful my big sis said “yes” to attending the #bisretreat with me again this year. Last year it was a hesitant “yes.” You know the kind that you say “yes” to but aren’t really sure what you are getting yourself into or what to expect but when it’s all said and done you are so happy that you did! We promised each other this retreat to bond over, recharge, grow in our faith, & share our own sisterhood with our #bissisterhood. It has been the best pinky promise we have made to each other to date. . . . // Mytae

When retreat is equal parts Spirit-filled goodness and slumber party fun with your girlfriends. I’m coming home from #bisretreat reflecting on three words I think describe each person of the Trinity for me. Father is faithful, Son is reckless, and Holy Spirit is WILD. Each word describes a unique relationship with each person. Father help me never forget Your promises. Jesus let me never get tired soaking in Your reckless love and grace and mercy. Come pursue and woo my heart in new ways. Holy Spirit do wild, crazy, creative things in and through my life. May I never settle for mediocrity but live in boldness. // Patty

Sister in Christ Y’all this weekend has been PHENOMENAL omgosh I can’t even. God is sooo good and I feel R E N E W E D & my heart is soo on fire for my God HIGHLY encourage you to check out a Blessed is She retreat. // Kathryn

Just one of those perfect weekends with my Blessed Is She sisters. I spoke with so many phenomenal women who shared their hearts. It was wild. // Samantha

What an awesome gift it was to spend the entire day with 300+ women. Diving into our faith, unleashing the wildness in our lives, and be able to worship together as beloved daughters of God. It was exactly what my heart needed. #bisretreat // Nykole
