“WOW! The Writers Retreat was AWESOME. A special time to get away, focus on my writing project, get inspired by accomplished authors and fellowship with like-minded women. It was practical, spiritual, relaxing and informative. I love Karolyne’s sweet spirit & Terrenique’s warmth and authenticity. Thanks ladies, you ROCK!”

“I was very pleased with this whole retreat. Each session was loaded with information to push me to write my book. The living accomodations were fantastic and I thoroughly enjoyed our activites such as hiking, the BBQ, and the all-white dinner party. To top it off, the retreat was centered on Christ, and you can’t get any better than that!”
