During free time, you can attend breakout sessions with speakers from all walks of life, or find a quiet place, grab a cup of tea, and dive deeper into God's word without distractions. Or go a little crazy, try a zipline, a trail ride, or a little paintball... Your kids loved it, and now you will too!
Annie F. Downs is a best-selling author and nationally known speaker based in Nashville, Tennessee. Flawed but funny, she uses her writing to highlight the everyday goodness of a real and present God.
Annie is the author of Looking for Lovely, a book about the power of perseverance, Let's All Be Brave, a book for men and women about the power we each have to make a difference on this planet. She also has two books for teens: Perfectly Unique, a spiritual growth book for high school and college girls, and Speak Love, a challenge to women on how to use their words to make a difference in the world.
By weaving together personal stories, humor, and Scripture, she invites those reading to experience fulfilled lives with a God who made them on purpose and loves them deeply. You can learn more about her books here.
While she loves writing- books, blogs, articles, thank-you notes- Annie also enjoys traveling around the world speaking at events, conferences, and churches. You can learn more about her speaking events here.
Annie is a huge fan of bands with banjos, glitter, her community of friends, boiled peanuts, and football games.
"Everything is done with such a spirit of God that I feel His love with every speaker, singer and volunteer."
Women's Retreat Attendee
Alisa Turner sings with joy, grit and vulnerability. She pours her experiences -- overcoming debilitating illness and losing her infant son -- into eloquent, piano-driven psalms and modern laments, pointing to the God whose love and faithfulness never fails. Giving up is not an option for Alisa who is following in her worship leader dad's footsteps, even though she battles chronic pain daily. The Nashville based singer, songwriter and worship leader knows the transformational power of praise, the supernatural exchange that occurs during worship as we surrender to the one who knows us best and loves us most. There is beauty in the brokenness and Alisa is determined to help others discover it and to walk in His love.
