One of my favorite things is when God gathers women to worship and create. A sisterhood is formed at these retreats that you just can’t explain until you are there and I have a stirring in my soul to invite you to such an event!

Join me – Shanna Noel and my friend Cori Spieker (aka the Reset Girl) for a retreat full of time spent in the Word, worshipping together, sisterhood, bible journaling, faith planning, antique shopping, ugly crying, yummy amazing food, all in the cutest house you have ever seen and of course selfies on the rainbow stairs! Ladies, this will be EPIC. Epic. And YOU are invited!

We wanted to give you a little peek into what to expect and I wanted to introduce you ( although I am sure you already know her ) my friend Cori as she shares a bit of what we will be up to with our time together!

Hi Cori!! Isn’t she cute?

I am so excited to meet you faithful girl! Prepare to be hugged and to spend lots of time with Shanna and I in this very personal, intimate retreat. It’s designed to be small so we can really get to know you, inspire and encourage you and show you lots of ways to make your faith an even bigger part of your life. My two workshops (plus extra little make and takes and additional crafty inspiration I will share with you) are very dear to my heart, and more of a ministry to me than just teaching a class. You will walk away with so more than a planner and crafting book, but also new friends, deeper faith and an experience you will never forget. I can’t wait to see you in May and am already praying just for you!

Workshop #1: Faithful Girl Planner Workshop

We will build a beautiful A5-planner especially for your quiet time, filled with tools and resources that will strengthen your walk with the Lord. This is not a planner for tasks and to-do’s, but a special place to use for reflection, documenting and growing. Using my signature techniques, you will learn to create dividers for your planner, and decorate and embellish them. You will be given lots of inspiration for using your planner in ways you may never have thought of, plus you will receive a special pack of my exclusive inserts that will turn your planner into a powerful too. You will leave our retreat with a complete planner you will love using each day.

Workshop #2: Faithful Everything Book

One of my favorite ways to craft is with scripture and my craft stash. In this class, we will create a special edition book that you can craft layouts with scriptures, document your faith walk, you can journal and take notes in it, plus create vision boards, collages and more. This is one of my favorite crafting projects, and I like to think of it as my crafty playground for my faith. I can’t wait to share this special project with you that will only give you even more inspiration to craft with your faith!

oh hi friends!


EEEEEPPP, Cori and I have been praying for this retreat for months, and let me tell you, I could NOT be more excited to spend this time together. I feel so blessed that Jesus has give us a BIG OLE YES to Rise & Shine. If you are new to bible journaling or faith planning I want you to feel welcome here, and come here just knowing and expecting Jesus to meet you here, in this time together, and to walk away with a fresh energy around your faith journey, and a handful of new sisters!! xo

Workshop #1 – You will be among the first ladies to be introduced to Revival Camp 2018!!! And can I share a little secret with you? It’s taking everything in my soul to hold back, from sharing it all with your right now! I’m THE MOST excited about this year and how HE is meeting us and blessing camp this year in #allthethings. In this workshop, we will be unpacking our camp kit, and gearing up for what God has for us in the word. I might even have some cute camp badges for you *wink wink* to document this journey and time together! We will be bible journaling and documenting our walk as we listen for what He has for us! It’s time to RISE AND SEEK his GLORY and share the GOOD NEWS in a beautiful way!

Workshop #2 – During our time together at the retreat we will have a morning meeting, as we are working through the book – Open Your Bible (this will be part of your class kit) and the lessons that accompany it. During this workshop, we will take what we are learning from the lessons and reflect on them in our bibles. This is a powerful tool, and a beautiful reminder of the gift that we are given in the Word, let’s make sure we document this powerful study time through bible journaling and creative note taking in a way that we are able to reflect on it for years to come! I can’t wait to share more about this and really DIVE in together :)

    Hi Ladies…
    Is there an option without travel expenses included…
    I really really want to join you….to celebrate retiring after 40 years in education…this is on my bucket list for retirement…
    I started journaling in Shanna’s first class at the LBH…and did Cori’s summer camp (mug lady recipes).
