“Kelly takes a retreat I was always too intimidated to try and made it approachable and doable for a busy pregnant mom. It felt accessible and incredibly uplifting!” Nell O’Leary, Whole Parenting Family

“This retreat offers a straightforward but compelling experience of Thomas a Kempis for anyone looking to deepen their spirituality. This retreat’s simple, 4 day format is a great way to bring a more concrete faith in the day-to-day, or to step back and refocus on your own personal faith in times of dryness.”  Christy Isinger, Fountains of Home

“When I started I was a little overwhelmed and felt like the whole thing was going to be over my head spiritually and intellectually. And while I’m sure that a lot of it DID go over my head, I was surprised by how much the spirituality applied to my life; there were SO many gems over the four days of reading.  I’m glad I stuck it out even though I started out feeling a little intimidated! I really enjoyed the experience.” Christina Kolb, A Gentle Mother
