Words came into my inbox this morning that brought tears to my eyes. It validated everything Elida and I are trying to accomplish with our “Ignite the Heart” retreats:
….I am the full belly after a decadent meal. There is a lot to digest. I came to the “Ignite” retreat open to anything and everything and everyone. I left the retreat with more then I could have ever bargained for. I have tears in my eyes as I write this, tears of utter gratitude to you and Elida for taking time to rally around women and lift them up to high places. You two are so Brave and generous of spirit. I NEVER in my life would have imagined that creativity and art could lead to God’s very throne but somehow as we open our souls, lay down our arms, we get to this very fragile place within ourselves where the rust melts away and God’s majesty shines thru and we start to sparkle again.
The rest of the retreat images are here.
West Texas, that is.
