Women's Retreat 2018

April 27-29, 2018 | Essenhaus Inn & Conference Center, Middlebury, IN | u...me...we

Join us for a weekend getaway to refresh and replenish our souls. Bring a friend (or two) to enjoy great food, a dynamic speaker and all the attractions of Amish Country. Our theme this year, u...me...we, is taking a dive into God’s truth about relationships with the women we call FRIENDS.


Natalie Chambers Snapp is an author, blogger and speaker who describes herself first and foremost as a follower of Jesus, then wife to Jason, and mom to one spunky daughter and two spirited sons with a whole lot of energy. Not choosing to follow Jesus until the age of twenty-seven, she is passionate about sharing the grace, mercy and truth of God’s love regardless of your track record. Her authentic approach to life and faith is both refreshing and endearing. Natalie is the author of the book, Heart Sisters: Be the Friend You Want to Have, and has written for various blogs and online devotionals. She lives in West Lafayette, Indiana with her crew and writes about faith in the everyday mundane. Visit her at nataliesnapp.com.



Bring a teen along to learn how to navigate the world of girlfriends better. We are excited to extend an invitation to High School teen girls to attend the Women's Retreat this year. Our speaker, Natalie Snapp, will be sharing from her book, Heart Sisters: Be the Friend You Want to Have. What a great opportunity to include the next generation in this weekend celebrating the friendships of women!

All teens automatically receive a $50 discount off their registration. Space is limited to 24 high school teens.
