Nursing mothers are welcome to bring their non-crawling infants on the retreat. A cry room will be available during the conference for moms who need to step out during scheduled conference talks. Mothers who plan to bring their nursing babies on the retreat will need to make arrangements with their roommates, and will not be paired at random with other attendees.

“Those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the sinful nature with its passions and desires. Since we live by the Spirit, let us keep in step with the Spirit.” -Galatians 5:24-25

If God himself taught you what beauty was, from the very beginning, how different do you think your life would be? I wonder how awesome our body image is going to be in the new heavens and new earth?!

I believe we can have some of that now. Comparison is a natural dynamic that occurs in our minds, often without thinking about it. We want to belong in both comfortable and unfamiliar surroundings. We just want to know we’re okay and safe from rejection. When we’re comparing, we’re acting as if we don’t belong to God, and he doesn’t have our best interest at heart. We approach life like we have to do it by ourselves….What does it mean to you to “keep in step with the Spirit?”
