Women's 2018 Retreat

This year we will be hosting our own women’s retreat at The Retreat at Balcones Springs near Marble Falls with speaker Tammy Whitehurst October 19 - 21, 2018. We hope you can join us! Register Here 

Relax, Revive, Renew

The past three years our Women's group has gone to different camp retreats that were hosted by other groups.  We had a great time, but some were pretty far away and we were limited with the number of people who could attend as the camps sell out so far in advance.  This year, we wanted to host our own event, closer to home and with a much larger capacity that allows us to bring many more women with us.  We hope that you can join us as we grow our relationships with God and each other.

If you have additional questions about the event, you can contact any of our Women's Life leadership team through email at women@yourlifechurch.org or find our event on Facebook here.  You may need to request access to our Women's Life group to view the event.

About Our Speaker:  Tammy Whitehurst

You can have JOY in your journey… is the foundation of Tammy Whitehurst’s message. As an author, blogger, and full time speaker she encourages and challenges audiences to live life kicked up a notch. She has been described as a hoot with a capital H! Tammy has written articles for Lifeway magazines, Woman’s World, Mature Living, Christianity Today and many other publications.

She is the co-owner of the Christian Communicator’s Conference, a training conference for speakers . However, to those who know her best she is simply Davis’s wife, a former middle school teacher, and an empty nest mom. She struggles like the rest of us with dust, dog hair, cellulite, junk drawers, and wrinkles.
