Girls’ Retreat!

Just got home from our annual girls’ retreat with the teens I mentor.

The beauty of God’s creation always amazes and inspires me

Absolutely love my girls!

Some of us after climbing an enormous mountain! Okay, so it wasn’t really a mountain, but it was really steep and tall and we did climb it! 🙂

Oh you know, just chillin’ in a hammock and chatting

Okay so there was LOTS of time spent in hammocks over the weekend, haha!

We made pretty bracelets!

Just hanging out on the dock at sunset 🙂

Basking in the gorgeous sun! It was in the high 70’s this weekend – such a blessing! 🙂

And of course, no photo shoot is complete without a jumping shot 😉

So beautiful

We talked, we sang, we prayed, we went on hikes, we nearly got shot (there were hunters in the woods were we were hiking and we had no idea until later! yikes!), we took silly pictures, we rested, we played games, we laid in hammocks, we basked in the sunshine, and in general just had a great time together. 🙂 So thankful for the time I get to spend with my girls.

    Looks like a fantastic weekend. What a great ministry.

  19. I have such fond memories of girls retreats! We did our Chrysalis trip in Alabama and it was one of the best “vacations” that I ever had!

  20. I think that’s so amazing that you mentor young girls! I was just thinking of my mentor in high school and how I want to reach out to her. Mentors really make such an impact, and it’s so important to have good Godly woman role models. I SERIOUSLY want to come visit after seeing this post 🙂
