Women’s Retreat 2018 “Purses and Prayer

Another wonderful Women’s Retreat is over for this year.  Already we are looking forward to next year.  The Theme was Purses and Prayers – Take God with You.  We learned to leave it to God.  Get rid of the worry and the stress and let God direct our lives.

There were fun games on the deck where we got to know one another along with many laughs and a beautiful star filled night for the campfire.

Mar-lu-ridge is a very inviting and comfortable place to relax.  They prepare delicious meals for breakfast, lunch, dinner and breakfast Sunday morning.

We had beautiful weather for a quick trip up the mountain to the camp where you over look 3 states, Maryland, Virginia and West Virginia.  Breathtaking views.

For fun to go along with our theme we made prayer rocks or worry stones and rosary rings.

Many thanks to all that helped make this a memorable Retreat and to Roberta for sewing our lovely purses.



The retreat was a relaxing time with wonderful women, with a great theme and centered around Christ. I had never been to the retreat center before and it was so relaxing to visit the chapel and sit outside to take in the beautiful weather and scenery.

As women we feel we have to serve/help others because it’s our jobs. When we look at serving we should feel it is a blessing not a burden.
I found this weekend to be good refresher on how we serve as women and how God tells us to serve.

A purse is more then the stuff we put in it. It is a place where we can  pull out an object and be reminded of Gods love!

A purse can also be filled with junk and things we don’t need. With God he helps clean the junk out of our purses.
