“The Truly Retreat has been such a therapeutic experience. It’s helped me articulate things I was feeling but didn’t have words for. I learned that we all struggle with feeling like we’re not enough, even though we already are. The one thing I kept hearing from the Holy Spirit was that I am truly enough in Christ. Throughout the weekend, I felt that everyone’s experience was respected and honored. Now that it’s over, I feel very empowered because I actually have action steps for how to go forward from here. I have already recommended the retreat, and I believe it would be beneficial to any woman who is looking for spiritual release.” - Kristina

“This has been a life-changing experience. I’ve been to lots of women’s retreats, and none of them have been as powerful as this one. During the sessions, I got to see other women for who they really are. No one was pretending. It was just genuine, intimate fellowship. I learned that there’s power in vulnerability. I think of the word ‘truly’ as the foundation of everything that happened this weekend. It was grounded in truth—truth about yourself, truth about other people’s stories—and that truth brings freedom. I appreciated that the presenters were raw and real, and honest about where they are in their own journeys. Every woman, no matter where they are in life, can benefit from a retreat like this. There’s always room for growth and room to develop genuine friendships.” - Alma
