March Retreat!

The March retreat is JUST 2 weeks away, and we are so excited to once again serve the 450 foster care and adoption moms who will be coming! It was just 4 weeks ago that we were at the retreat center--and  the January retreat was amazing...and we are still hearing wonderful testimonies from how moms received rest and encouragement in their time here!

Our THEME for the weekend is "LOVE BIG". We have divided the breakout sessions into 3 categories: Encouragement in the Word, Equipping to Love Big and Just for Fun. If you are signed up to come to the March retreat and you have completely forgotten what you even signed up for back in August when you registered...NO WORRIES! We had to switch around several breakouts--so we will actually be emailing out NEW breakout registration forms later this week! (Be on the lookout in your email!) In the mean time--you can read the breakout descriptions on our website here:

You can see the schedule as well as the times of particular breakouts under the March 2013 Retreat tab on our website or simply by visiting this link:

If you have not already sent in a family photo, the deadline is THIS SUNDAY!!! At each retreat, we kick off our fun weekend with a slideshow--celebrating what God has done, what He is doing and what He will do in our stories. Choose a picture of your journey to share--it can be during the paper process, waiting, Gotcha/Family day or a recent family portrait of your family together. You can email your picture by this Sunday, February 24th to Just put "March Picture" in the subject line and attach ONE picture of your family! That's it! PLEASE send us a pic--and be sure it is an original full resolution file if possible.

We can't WAIT to meet many of you in March or see you again if you are a past C4C momma! Our crew is praying for each of you as you prepare to come. We know it's an act of Congress to get away--so we will be praying for the details, that the Lord will pave your way and that your family will be strengthened as daddies bond with littles...and littles one see that mommy comes back!

One last fun thing we must share--we can't wait to introduce you to 2 more moms who are joining our planning trio! We have 2 moms jumping on board with us, Amber and Mindy, who are fearlessly taking on the Created for Care Mini-Retreat Coordinating--and they will be the moms you all connect with if you decide to join us in serving moms in your community through mini-retreats!

Alright! Get your countdown on! Just 2 weeks away!!! Get ready to rest, be encouraged and worship with moms with similar heartbeats and callings! Can't wait to see each of you!!!


Andrea, Christy and Angie
