Are you feeling stuck? Do you long for intimacy or deep friendship? Do you feel like you belong? Are you full of God's love for you? Fully satisfied by Him? The truth is that you are fully loved and fully accepted. Being full of God’s love settles, empowers, and brings out the best of who we are. Come retreat with us and slow down to receive His love as soul oxygen so that we are better able to love others from that full place. 

(Quote by Lysa TerKeurst adapted for our retreat.)




Family Time

Fun Festivities

Circles of Prayer

Growth Experiences

Guided Discussion Groups


The three primary areas where people are typically stuck in life are: 

Identity, Intimacy & Purpose 

Soul, Spirit, & Body

At the Living Loved Retreat, we hope to help you experience healing and growth in each of these areas. We desire for you to know WHO you are in Jesus, your identity; to experience WHAT Jesus died for, intimacy with the Father, Son and Holy Spirit as well as your adopted family and WHY you are here on planet Earth, your God-given purpose. 

"And so we know and rely on the love God has for us. God is love. Whoever lives in love, lives in God, and God in them." 1 John 4:16

Interactive/Experiential Activities


Arts & Crafts

Make your own vision board, life map or other personal creation to engage with your creative side and enhance your life for days, weeks, months and years to come. We'll supply art supplies, knitting supplies, and supplies for arts and crafts.


Outdoor Fun

Take a guided hike with Adrienne up to the top of Glassy Mountain at the home of famous poet, Carl Sandburg. It's a physical and spiritual experience. Take a walk around the lake. Kayak the nearby Green River or engage in a myriad of other outdoor activities in WNC.


Community Building Fun

Participate in karaoke or line dancing with Meleah. Join Tony in icebreaker and get-to-know you games. Or play board games with a group of people. Hang out at the campfire, sing songs as Jeremy plays guitar and roast marshmallows for s'mores.
