Ladies retreat was a special time. It was very relaxing and laid back. The crowd was small, so it felt very personal and we were able to fellowship with one another and got to know some people we had only seen in passing before. Sis. Zilinski did a great job organizing everything and bringing it all together. Sis Oakes, the speaker, was very down to earth with a great sense of humor. Sis Dehod and I won a free registration for next year. Yay! The idea that stood out to me the most was eah night writing down the best thing that happeded to you that day, then at the end of the week writing the thing fron the list that was the best for the week, then the month and then the year. The idea was to change your focus from the negative to the positive. I am trying to do that experiment. All of it was good, but that is what I really brought home with me. The whole thing seemed to focus on how to be a Godly, victorious lady and Sis Oakes seems to exemplify that in her life , what little I saw of it. One lady recieved the Holy Ghost and a few others were seeking for it. Thank you Karen for sharing your room with me. It was a blessing to be able to go.

Tina: I am just sad that it was on a Thursday, Friday night. I would have loved to have gone and got that refreshing. Though I did spend Saturday afternoon at the densist's office getting a broken tooth fixed. Much rather be at the retreat. Maybe next year it will be at a different time or on a Friday, Saturday. Glad you had a great time.
