Mark your calendar

It is official, I along with 4 other women are following God into the land of the unknown and organizing a women's conference. Here are a few details, with more to come!

Rise and Shine Women's Ministries (Women from Northeast Iowa churches) presents:
Rise and Shine Women's Retreat
Be Encouraged...Refreshed...Renewed

The Rise and Shine Women's Retreat is designed to:
Encourage you to "rise" up to who God created you to be
Refresh you on your walk of faith
Renew your strength to "shine" His light.

Arise, shine, for your light has come and the glory of the LORD rises upon you. Isaiah 60:1 (NIV)

Proverbs 31 Team Speaker, Renee Swope will be our keynote speaker...speaking twice at the retreat. There will also be a time of reflection ...a time set apart for reflecting, sharing, connecting and applying. We'll also enjoy worship time, friends and fellowship.

When: Saturday, October 31, 2009
Time: 9 AM to 3 PM
Where: Orchard Hill Church
Cedar Falls, Iowa

We pray you will be able to join us as we all come together to "Rise and Shine!"
Stop back again for more details and post any questions as they arise!


  1. I'll be there...either way!
    How exciting to see God working in you Jill.

  2. Way to go, Jill! I'm so excited that Rise & Shine is on your blog!!! Can I put this on mine too? I'm excited about sharing this adventure with you!

  3. Jill-our women's leadership team is interested in this. We would probably drive down the night before so we would need hotel information. We are about 4 hours away. Can you e-mail me more information as it comes together?

    This sounds so good!!
